More: Full, Official Features and comparison of Forerunner 965 vs Garmin 265
I’ve now had 3 independent rumours of the existence of a Forerunner 965, so it’s time to press the Enter button.
Several days ago we had real photos of the upcoming Forerunner 265 (shown above). This is essentially a Forerunner 255 with a high resolution AMOLED colour screen. There is no other info on if it has any other new features so I can only assume that all we get here is a pretty screen and less battery life.
There are no pictures at all of the alleged Forerunner 965 but my amazing powers of deduction bet that it too has a pretty screen and shorter battery life when compared to the Forerunner 955.
This is a wholly expected move. Garmin ramped up AMOLED capabilities in CIQ System 5 last year and that was the hint that Garmin is taking AMOLED seriously.
We’ve seen AMOLED on several models since then, most notably for me on the Garmin Epix 2 which has to be just about the most perfect sports watch ever. It has a pretty screen and all the serious sporty stuff AND the battery life is not too shabby. Except the Epix 2 is just that little bit too metallic and heavy. I’d like Epix to be just a little bit lighter, please.
And so we have the Forerunner 965. The watch you won’t be embarrassed to wear all day indeed you will be showing off the screen vibrancy and resolution to all your friends (maybe)
AMOLED will likely also come to all Garmin’s high-end watch models sooner rather than later.
