Train brilliantly with the Garmin Forerunner 965 whether you’re working toward a new personal best in triathlon, trying to build a running habit that sticks or want to get a fuller picture of your health and wellness.

When you know how to get the most out of your Garmin running watch, it can be the perfect tool to help step up your training. That’s why the Forerunner 965 is consistently one of the best GPS watches for runners.

Garmin took the 965 and upgraded it with a brilliant AMOLED touchscreen display along with traditional button controls and a lightweight titanium bezel. The new screen along with full-color, built-in maps and multi-band GPS lets you confidently run any route whether you’re just starting to trail run or navigating through an ultramarathon course.

If you happen to wander off course, multi-band GNSS with SatIQ™ technology provides superior accuracy in challenging environments while also optimizing the device’s battery life. Plus, safety and tracking features like incident detection can send a message with your live location to emergency contacts when paired with your smartphone (requires setup and your smartphone to be in an area with network coverage where data connectivity is available).

From the 5K to marathon training, the Forerunner 965 can track your sleep quality, recovery, training load, recent performance and heart rate variability status to determine if you’re primed to train hard that day or need to take a break (data presented is intended to be a close estimation of metrics tracked).

As race day approaches, plan your racing strategy and pacing with personalized daily suggested workouts based on the distance and course that you input into the Garmin Connect™ app and view using the race widget on your watch.

And when the going gets tough, listen to phone-free music (up to 2000 songs) from your Forerunner 965 for motivation. Once your run is over, reward yourself with a coffee and pay using Garmin Pay™ contactless payments.

For the triathlete moving from one workout to the next, the Forerunner 965 can easily switch between sports with the press of a button by using built-in profiles for triathlons, duathlons, brick workouts and swimruns. You can even customize your own multisport profiles.

If you’re looking to improve your running form and cadence, the 965 also gives you wrist-based running dynamics and running power including cadence, stride length, ground contact time and more.

Once you strap this premium running watch onto your wrist, it will be a long time before it needs to be recharged—the Forerunner 965 outshines the competition with a battery life of up to 23 days in smartwatch mode and up to 31 hours in GPS mode.

Love the watch screen and battery life!

2 Month review. Battery is amazing and why I bought this watch and switched from a Apple watch. I was getting to the point where my old watch was almost dead from full charge on one long run. This watch battery lasts 1 - 2 weeks depending on screen setting. This is a running watch with smart watch capabilities. I'm extremely satisfied with my purchase but it's because I knew what I was getting into.

Switched from Apple Ultra watch and won’t go back
