The i-Run team says
The Garmin Forerunner 255 sports watch accompanies you during your regular running sessions as well as new athletic challenges. Its sophisticated design helps you achieve even the most ambitious goals.
You have access to more than 30 sports profiles, allowing you to maximize your potential in activities including running, cycling, triathlon, hiking, and swimming. In swimming, you can choose between pool and open water modes.
Equipped with the Elevate Gen 4 heart rate sensor and the Pulse Ox 2.0 oximeter, the Garmin Forerunner 255 captures vital fitness data. Based on this information, it provides training recommendations and health data right after you wake up.
To enhance your performance, the watch analyzes your recovery post-exercise. The Garmin Connect App helps you organize and create workouts tailored to your level and goals.
The multi-band GPS precisely calculates your position even in challenging environments. The barometric altimeter is also beneficial during your outdoor adventures.
The watch features the Fitness Age 2.0 algorithm and the HRV test, allowing you to monitor your health condition. The HRV test evaluates the time interval between heartbeats to measure your fitness and stress levels.
The updated watch, designed for longer battery life, runs up to 30 hours in GPS mode and up to 14 days in smartwatch mode.
