One of the most loved and popular Garmin sports watches is finally on track to get a new version soon.
Garmin Forerunner 255 data
The upcoming Garmin Forerunner 255 will replace the Forerunner 245 model, which was released about three years ago in 2019.
The new Forerunner 255 is expected to come in two sizes: a regular version that may come in a larger 47mm case, and then a Forerunner 255s (the “s” stands for small in Garmin’s language), which is expected to be a size of 42 mm, similar to the current model. Keep in mind that those measurements are an assumption based on how Garmin measures its Fenix watch models.
A search on Singapore Government TLS reveals the new Forerunner models
As you can see from the above post, the Singapore TLS doesn’t give any details, but it does reveal the model names and numbers.
In addition, you can also buy a regular version of the watches or a “Music” version for a small additional cost. The non-Music models are expected to have Bluetooth and ANT+ connectivity, while the Music versions will additionally have a Wi-Fi connection.
Comments on Reddit suggest that the regular Forerunner 255 model costs $350, while the Forerunner 255 Music costs $400.
We don’t see any mention of a fancy solar model, or an OLED screen, but we do expect functional improvements. However, for details on this, we will have to wait for the official announcement.
Garmin Forerunner 955
Interestingly, there is no mention of the anticipated Garmin Forerunner 955, the high-end version of the runner’s watch.
It was previously expected to launch alongside the Forerunner 255, but that may no longer be the case.
