Nice upgrade from 945

I was on the fence about upgrading but I’m really glad I did. Much nicer screen and I actually like the touch feature.

Has allot of features

I bought the what in white when I got an email with it on sale. I did some research and comparison to my Venu3 and decided it had a couple features my venue didn’t. I have a certain screen that displays allot of data and it isn’t as vivid on the 955 as the Venu3. I have a small wrist and really like the watch band compare to the others, it provides more options with more security of staying on.

Full health & training features!

I purchased this watch because I was looking for one place to track my training and overall health. Garmin provides all this in a very easy to use product with an amazing battery with extended times between charging thanks to solar recharge capability. When I do need to plug it in, it charges so fast. I love this watch and all the data it provides to help empower me to make good choices for my health.

Love the watch

Got this a month ago and has been the best investment ever. Narrowed it down between the tactical solar and 955 solar and pulled the trigger. Got a little discount code through work and has been the best purchase in a long time

Keeps me engaged

This was a Christmas gift to myself. I have difficulty sticking with a workout regimen and felt that this watch might give me the nudge I needed to do so. So far, it has! I love all of the details the watch produces on goals, suggested workouts, sleep patterns, heart rate and whatnot. One issue that I would like to fix is that it gives a prescribed pace for your workout and then warns you every 30 seconds or so if you are going too fast or too slowly. This is fine, except that the recommended workout is MUCH slower than what I normally run, so I really just get complaints from the watch that I am going too fast. Furthermore, the watch does not account for terrain, it seems, so I get warnings about going too slowly when I am heading up a hill and warnings that I am going too fast when I am going down a hill. Maybe this is a setting that I can fix. If not, it should be. In short, I love the feedback and features -- the mile times, the pace readout on the watch, the ability to load music onto the watch and play it on my airpods -- but I would love it if the watch adjusted to the pace that I run better and was a bit smarter about understanding that runners go more slowly uphill than down! :-)

It freezes

I bought this watch a little over a year ago, and the screen freezes or goes black every now and then.

excellent self care tool

i love this watch to help me track my data and activity. it helps me maintain my mental wellness as much as my physical fitness. its like having a nurse on my wrist. the only issue is that after i charge and sync the device, my glances are all out of order so i find that annoying to have to re arrange over and over. but the battery life is incredible.

Monitoring health

So far of all the good features the ability to monitor my health has been the most useful.
