Garmin Forerunner 955 LTE Bundle

More Info: What to expect on Garmin Forerunner 955 (FR955)

A post on the Garmin forums shows that the Forerunner 955 LTE Bundle is supposedly available to buy in Garmin Australia/New Zealand at about GBP550, which sounds about right.

The part number 010-02383-43 seems to be a new one and looks genuine to me. Maybe someone could try some creative googling?

I’d not previously heard anything about a 955 BUNDLE, so I’m not entirely sure what goodies could be in that other than a HRM-TRI/PRO/SWIM (@Brian). A new STRYD -like pod perhaps? 😉

The white colour DOES tie in with previous intel I’ve had and that’s the only reason that makes me think this could be real and not photoshopped.

The Forerunner 955 LTE was obviously leaked a LONG time ago (here). the FR955 is going to happen soon and this leak suggests that even next week is possible as that is supposed to also be when the Instinct 2 hits the shops.

My previous intel on the 955 was for a release in a few more months time. Maybe not! Check below it says ready for delivery in 3-5 weeks. Whether that’s 3-5 weeks from today or from the announcement date…who knows?

Alternative explanation: This could be a mistype and it could be the first time that the 945LTE goes down under? (see comments below). Though it would be a mistype on 2 products.

Remember: the 945LTE isn’t really the FR945+LTE. It’s really the smaller FR745 + LTE (and maps and the gen 4 ELEVATE sensor). There would be no point in replacing the FR945LTE so soon…unless it is a completely different size, that would justifiably hack people off.

Update 5 hours later: The 955 is apparently not yet ready to launch

Next Day Update: This probably was a mistype and it is 945LTE arriving Downunder for the first time (?) – news in itself but not as big news.

  1. Wow!
    Hopefully it will be an F7 with LTE, like the FR935 was an F5. So 47mm and a 1.3″ screen with a 260×260 résolution.

  2. I’m thinking it might be a typo or other kind of error. If you look at the product number, it’s 010-02383-42 (black) and -43 (white). The base 010-02383 is the same as the Forerunner 945 LTE. The black US is -00, the white US is -01 and NZ is -40 (black) and -41 (white) (https://www.garmin.com/en-NZ/p/698632/pn/010-02383-41).

    The same product though is also on the NZ site (https://www.garmin.com/en-NZ/p/698417), which is odd since there’s the 945 LTE on it too, so I don’t know. But again, the model numbers line up with the 945 LTE. The 945 and 935 have different “base” model numbers.

      1. Links no longer work. That says something. I was about to order the 945 lte. I will wait a bit but I am not getting my hopes up.

    1. Nice find!
      Just the availability of 945 LTE in Australia would be big news. LTE not currently available here on Garmin watches

  4. I knew there was more coming this month from Garmin! From one of the Fenix reviewers they even said there’s more to come from Garmin in January! This could be it.

  5. I expect the bundle will be the HRM-Pro and HRM-Swim sold with the watch.

    The typo theory seems like a plausible explanation under Occam’s razor in this case though.

  6. I would think debuting a new watch with a feature not available on the supposedly range-topping F7 and Epix, just one week after those watches hit stores, would generate crazy backlash.

    A 955 with features that will be added to the F7/Epix via firmware updates? Sure.

    This has gotta be the 945 LTE.

    1. Also interested in a VS4 successor- my unit’s battery life has never been good. Need a better companion for my Epix 2!

  7. Guys – you are the kings of information! You’re the best – thank you for the continual updates and keeping us in the know

  8. Garmin 945 LTE has appeared on the NZ garmin website with the above model number so sadly appears to be this and not a 955:(

    1. IDK if it means anything. Interesting nevertheless.
      I’m unsure if Solar would be on the 955.
      sometimes retailers list products based on some of the rumours that get published, just to try to get interest and SEO on their site.
      there was the 955LTE ‘leak’ which was possibly just a miss-type of the 945LTE only recently making it to Australia. So some retailers elsewhere just listed the 955LTE as a result of that typo from Garmin.
