TAILORED TO THE DEDICATED

Clocking in at just 52 grams, the Forerunner 955 smartwatch will keep you light on your feet and attuned to your body.

TRAINING READINESS

From the moment you wake up, get a readiness score based on your sleep quality, recovery, training load and more, so you can determine whether it’s a good day to go hard — or take it easy.

MORNING REPORT

Receive an overview of your sleep, recovery and training outlook as soon as you wake up — alongside HRV status and weather. You can even customise your report to show you what you want to see.

HRV STATUS

Gain a deeper understanding of your overall health, training and recovery through heart rate variability while you sleep, based on technology developed by our Firstbeat Analytics team.

RACE WIDGET

Get ready for your next race with training tips, personalised daily suggested workouts and completion time predictions based on course details, weather and performance.

DAILY SUGGESTED WORKOUTS

View your entire week of daily suggested workouts, which adapt after every run to match your performance and recovery as well as the races coming up in your Garmin Connect smartphone app calendar.

GARMIN COACH

Free adaptive training plans include 5K, 10K and half-marathon programs, featuring guidance from expert coaches that adapt to you and your goals.

Running Power

Get a continuous measurement on your wrist of how much power you’re applying to the road as you run when using a Running Dynamics Pod or HRM-Pro monitor.

REAL-TIME STAMINA

Use this data to track and manage your exertion — and help avoid overexerting at the start of your run or bike.

RUNNING DYNAMICS

When using a Running Dynamics Pod or HRM-Pro monitor, the Forerunner 955 watch measures crucial running metrics such as cadence, stride length, ground contact time and balance, and more.

TRAINING STATUS

Using new indicators such as HRV status, your recent exercise history and performance, get an easy insight into your overall effort — and whether you’re training productively, peaking or strained.

ACUTE LOAD

Compare the intensity of your recent workouts to the optimal range to help improve your fitness and see your training history.

TRAINING EFFECT

See how your workouts influence your endurance, speed and power with aerobic and anaerobic training effect feedback

PacePro™ Feature

The PacePro feature helps keep you on pace with grade-adjusted guidance as you run a course.

RECOVERY TIME

Know how long to recover before your next high-effort workout based on your latest training as well as overall stress, sleep and daily activities outside of workouts.

VO2 MAX

Train smarter with VO2 Max, an indicator of how you can expect to perform. This metric even accounts for changes in performance that could be caused by heat or altitude.

PERFORMANCE CONDITION

While you run, get an analysis of your pace, heart rate and heart rate variability for a real-time assessment of your current ability to perform.

SYNC TRAINING PLANS

Get your indoor and outdoor training plans from the Garmin Connect app, or sync seamlessly to your Forerunner from other platforms including TrainingPeaks and TrainerRoad.

BUILT-IN SPORTS APPS

Switch up your workouts with activity profiles for cycling, triathlon, pool and open-water swimming, track running and more. For races and brick workouts, switch sports with a single button press.

VISUAL RACE PREDICTOR

Based on your running history and overall fitness level, get an estimate of what your pace could be for a 5K, 10K — or even a marathon. Plus, trend data highlights your training’s impact over time.

MULTI-BAND SUPPORT

Access multiple global navigation satellite systems, and get access to multiple frequencies sent by navigation satellites for improved accuracy in areas where GNSS signals are reflected, weak or typically don't penetrate — giving you superior accuracy for how far and how fast you’ve run — even in challenging environments.

Full-colour Mapping

Whether you’re running on city streets or riding densely covered trails, Forerunner 955 provides full-colour, built-in mapping to keep you on track.

TURN-BY-TURN NAVIGATION

Follow a course with help from turn-by-turn directions, which let you know ahead of time when the next turn is coming.

ROUND-TRIP ROUTING

With Trendline™ popularity routing, it’s easy to find the best local paths. Just enter a desired distance, and Forerunner 955 will suggest courses that bring you back to your starting point.

UP AHEAD

Get at-a-glance awareness for points of interest along the course. In addition, view performance metrics, split times and distance/elevation — plus a summary of key course points coming up.

CLIMBPRO FEATURE

Use ClimbPro ascent planner on downloaded courses to see real-time information on your current and upcoming climbs, including gradient, distance and elevation gain.

SAFETY AND TRACKING FEATURES

If you feel unsafe or if your watch senses that an incident occurred, Assistance and incident detection features1 send your location to emergency contacts. Incident detection is enabled by default for select activity profiles only.

Courses

Create or find existing courses in the Garmin Connect app, so you’ll never run out of places to run. Or plan one on other platforms such as Strava and Komoot, then automatically sync them to your Forerunner smartwatch.

WRIST-BASED HEART RATE

The watch constantly samples your heart rate with our latest-generation heart rate sensor and will alert you if it stays too high or too low while you’re at rest. It also helps gauge how hard you work during activities — even while swimming.

BODY BATTERY™ ENERGY MONITORING

Track your body’s energy levels so you can find the best times for activity and rest2.

SLEEP SCORE AND ADVANCED SLEEP MONITORING

Get a score for your sleep’s quality and insights on how you can do better. Even keep track of the different sleep stages as well as heart rate, stress, Pulse Ox3 and respiration.

PULSE OX SENSOR

This wrist-based Pulse Ox sensor3 monitors blood oxygen saturation levels to support advanced sleep monitoring and altitude acclimation.

WOMEN’S HEALTH TRACKING

Use the Garmin Connect app to track your menstrual cycle or pregnancy. Log symptoms, get exercise and nutrition education, and more. Even see and log details on your wrist.
