    Product Description

    Lead the pack with Forerunner 955 Solar, the premium GPS running and triathlon smartwatch with Power Glass solar charging to extend battery life. The training readiness feature tells you when you’re primed for a productive session — while daily suggested workouts adapt to your performance and recovery alongside the race widget, which provides training tips, course details and completion time predictions. With morning report, you can get an overview of your sleep, recovery, training and more — as well as a picture of your overall health with heart rate variability (HRV) status (This device is intended to give an estimate of your activity and metrics). On the run, new multi-band GPS and full-color, built-in maps help you navigate confidently. And with traditional buttons and a touch display, it has never been easier to tap into your training status and know whether you’re training productively, peaking or strained. 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 life with solar charging in smartwatch mode (assuming all-day wear with 3 hours per day outside in 50,000 lux conditions).
