Customer Reviews

Customer Reviews for the Garmin Forerunner 955 Solar White.

Our Comment

We have always thought the Forerunner 945 is the best running watch from Garmin.  The new Forerunner 955 has stolen that accolade with the addition of some really useful features such as the extra memory, free worldwide mapping with an easy-to-use map manager and touchscreen display.  GPS accuracy has seen huge improvements with the implementation of multi-band GNSS support.  In essence your watch can now lock onto satellites at different frequencies which means more satellites and better accuracy at any one time, albeit at the expense of battery life.  Finally, improvements to existing health and activity monitoring apps and the addition of new apps, such as Training Readiness, means the Forerunner 9xx series continues to be the benchmark running watch and defintely one for consideration by any serious runner/triathlete.
