Lead the pack with Forerunner 955 Solar, the premium GPS running and triathlon smartwatch with Power Glass™ solar charging. The new training readiness feature tells you when you’re primed for a productive session, while daily suggested workouts give you a peek at the week ahead and adapt to your body after every run. With new multi-band GPS and full-color, built-in maps, you can navigate confidently — whether you’re in the race or just grabbing a post-run coffee with Garmin Pay™ contactless payments¹. And with traditional buttons and a touch display, it has never been easier to tap into your running power, running dynamics and music. If you’re pushing toward the podium — or to the very limits — Forerunner 955 Solar is by your side with up to 20 days of battery with solar charging in smartwatch mode² and improved insights such as VO2 max, training status and HRV status.
New Features in the Forerunner 955 Solar (compared to Forerunner 945):
Get up to 20 days of battery life in smartwatch mode with solar charging2. In GPS mode, get up to 42 hours and up to 49 hours when solar charging. With UltraTrac™ mode, go even longer with up to 110 hours when solar charging.
TOUCHSCREEN AND BUTTONS
