Garmin watches like the Garmin Forerunner 955 are smartwatches, they pull information from your phone, things like notifications and other things, but that’s not what they’re all about or what they’re designed for.

Garmin Forerunner 955: Quick Overview

The Garmin Forerunner 955 picks up on what its predecessor left behind, adding an (easy-to-use) touchscreen, sun options, new training information, and HRV and training status, all of which create a feel throughout and for all subsequent models.
