The Garmin Forerunner 255 sports watch is your companion for both regular running sessions and new athletic challenges. Its sophisticated design is crafted to help you achieve even the most demanding goals.
You have access to over 30 sports profiles, enabling you to get the best out of yourself in activities including running, cycling, triathlon, hiking, and swimming. In swimming, you can choose between pool swimming and open water modes.
The Garmin Forerunner 255 is equipped with the Elevate Gen 4 heart rate sensor and the Pulse Ox 2.0 oximeter, capturing crucial fitness data. Based on these insights, it offers training recommendations and health data right after you wake up.
An analysis is performed to enhance your performance, helping you optimize recovery after exertion. The Garmin Connect App allows you to organize and create workouts tailored to your level and goals.
The multi-band GPS precisely calculates your position even in challenging environments, and the barometric altimeter is beneficial for your outdoor excursions.
