Garmin Forerunner 265s Review


The Forerunner 265s builds upon the terrific foundations of the 255 and crams a lot of new features into a watch made for smaller wrists.

Vibrant and high quality AMOLED display ; Solid sports tracking performance ; Still strong battery life

It’s more expensive than 255 ; No cheaper music-free model

The Garmin Forerunner 265s is a great multisports watch with an even lovelier display than the 255, but that screen and some other software extras do come at significantly greater price.

More intuitive menu navigation ; Multiband GPS ; Long battery life — even with AOD enabled ; Adds helpful training features ; Oh, oh, it’s OLED, you know

It’s $100 more than the 255 ; OLED displays don’t cost $100

One major perk of being a reviewer is that I get to try all the Garmins without breaking my wallet. That said, this is 100 percent the Garmin I’d buy with my own money. I didn’t find myself sacrificing much battery life for OLED, the screen was more...
