Garmin Malaysia has just released their latest product, ideal for all you fitness aficionados out there. The Forerunner 265 and 965 are the first dedicated GPS running smartwatches with brilliant AMOLED displays.

These smartwatches are small, bright, and ideal for long distances. The optional always-on, full-colour screens make it easy to read even in the worsts of weathers. Moreover, thanks to a responsive touchscreen that complements the conventional 5-button design, you can effortlessly access all of the common health features, smart notifications, and more!

Let’s discover them.

The titanium bezel of the Forerunner 965 makes it ultra light on the wrist while yet making a statement. Also, you won’t have to worry about battery life because the Forerunner 265 has a battery life of up to 15 days in smartwatch mode, while the Forerunner 965 has a battery life of up to 23 days.

If you want to push yourself, the Forerunner 265 and Forerunner 965 provide unique features to help you reach your fitness goals. Begin your day right with a morning report that includes an assessment of your sleep and the training prognosis for the day, as well as HRV (heart rate variability) status and weather updates (when paired with a smartphone).

The smartwatches also provide a training readiness score, which indicates whether it’s a good day to go hard or easy, based on your sleep quality, recovery, training load, and other factors. You can also track heart rate variability during sleeping to gain a better picture of recovery and overall wellness.

And if you’re a running enthusiast, you’ll be pleased to know that you can monitor running power and running dynamics like cadence, stride length, ground contact time, and more right from your wrist, without the need for an app or an attachment.

In short, the Forerunner 265 and 965 were designed for runners by runners. Thus, regardless of whether you’re planning, preparing, performing, or connecting, these smartwatches have you covered. With Garmin’s premium training stats, recovery insights, long battery life, and other features, you can run – and rest – comfortable knowing you have the tools to perform at your best. So, put on your trainers and let the Forerunner series help you crush your fitness objectives!
