Customer Reviews

Customer Reviews for the Garmin Forerunner 965 Black Yellow.

Our Comment

Similar to the Forerunner 955, the Forerunner 965 is a class leading running watch with outstanding battery life, GPS accuracy and heart rate monitoring. The addition of the touchscreen AMOLED display reinforces the premium status of this watch and while it may be hard to justify a leap from the 955, it is an excellent upgrade from the Forerunner 945 or 935.

For an excellent review of the watch, check out the following Garmin Forerunner 965 review by DC Rainmaker.
