Why We Like The Garmin Forerunner 965 Watch

With downloadable training plans, complete health snapshots, full-color maps, accurate location tracking, real-time stamina alerts, and up to 31 hours of battery life in GPS mode, this piece of training equipment gets us to the starting line of our ultra race and through to the podium.

Get Something Else!

I had previously owned a different fitness watch. Upset that the company took off the music app I use (and allowing for too many steps during the day), I decided to switch to Garmin. Specifically, I chose the Forerunner 965. Horrible decision. There are too many buttons. While I am most definitely not the brightest bulb, you should not need a manual to figure out how to use a fitness watch. Then, perhaps my favorite- it is impossible to download Apple Music. The directions given by Garmin on how to do it on an IPhone do NOT match with what is on the actual IPhone.

Garmin watch great. Garmin Connect TERRIBLE!!

Really liked Garmin forever, but since they changed Garmin Connect it has made me rethink a different watch. Whoever came up and decided to change Garmin Connect ruined the Garmin brand and should be fired.

More Features to Help with training

I am very pleased with this watch. As a triathlete, I like the heart rate feature while swimming, as well as the auto switch option between events in a triathlon. There have been races where I am I to the bike a mile or two and realized I did t switch from transition to biking.

Great watch

I’ve had multiple Garmin watches, the last was the original 935 when it first was released years ago, still a great watch and only replaced because there was features I wanted in the 965 that aren’t available in the 935. I can honestly say the 965 beats out my expectations. Personally I think it’s more accurate, also gets GPS signal incredibly quick even when traveling abroad. The display is fantastic. Well worth it, just get it.

While traveling outside the US, the GPS is outstanding. Perfect maps for all my runs, and walks. The stamina feature is excellent. The morning reports are a great feature.

Fantastic tool!

I’ve been running with my 965 for a month and absolutely love it. Great insights, awesome battery, and just an all-around great watch. My first Garmin since the 300 series—my how things have changed, for the better!

Great upgrade, 965 is amazing!

I recently upgraded to the 965 and completely love it! From 910, 945 and now this, the screen is far better, the controls are much nicer and the touch screen is a game changer!

All around just a great watch!

I came from a Apple watch ultra. This has just as much features. Cheaper, lighter, more battery. I have enjoyed this for runner and weight training
