With a longer battery life, a super-durable construction and a clear, responsive display, the Forerunner® 265 is a must-have piece of tech for life on and off the track or trail. It provides comprehensive health data such as heart rate, calories, sleep and stress. It also comes with helpful data displays like the morning report which provides a useful overview of your sleep, recovery and training outlook.

30+ activity profiles ensure the Forerunner® 265 can adapt to any training regime, including a dedicated triathlon feature that combines dedicated profiles for running, swimming and cycling. It helps to plan your strategy with daily suggested workouts and syncs up with Garmin IQ, Garmin Connect and other platforms like Strava and Komoot so you can input your pre-planned routes or access routes from other members of the running community.

Advanced running metrics go into more detail than other smartwatches to provide the ultimate training assistance, while helpful features like Garmin Pay™ contactless payments and smartphone notifications means the watch can provide assistance in everyday life too.
