Garmin Forerunner 955 Solar review – Top-tier triathlon watch with all the perks


Garmin's top-tier triathlon watch is more capable than ever thanks to the updated sensors and new multi-system satellite support

Same price as Forerunner 945 ; Touchscreen works well ; Race day widget and tailored daily workout suggestions are great for people who race often ; GPS is super fast ; Updated optical heart rate sensor is accurate

Battery life is weirdly short, even with solar ; Running power feature requires an external sensor

The Garmin Forerunner 955 Solar is a brilliant triathlon watch that offers more accurate heart rate sensor and GPS chip than the Forerunner 945 for almost the same price. The new features make the watch a versatile training partner; a shame it can't...

Garmin Forerunner 955 Solar review: 7 weeks and 200 miles of testing


Runners love Garmin, and serious runners love the high-end Forerunner models. The 955 Solar is ready for extreme distances, and has every feature you'll need.

Incredible battery life Consistently accurate GPS tracking Touch screen and 5-button navigation Easy-to-read screen in all conditions Great fitness and health features

Solar version is overkill for most runners Core features identical to lower Forerunners

“This is a serious watch for serious runners. If that's you, you'll be ecstatic with everything the 955 Solar has to offer.”

Garmin Forerunner 955 Solar Review: $600 Fitness Watch Outruns My Apple Watch


It's feature loaded and extremely comfortable.

Long-lasting battery life ; Accurate GPS tracking ; Morning Report feature is useful way to start the day ; Works with iOS and Android

Solar charging likely not worth extra $100 for most people ; No small option for this model ; Quick replies are limited to Android
