Details

With the Forerunner 55, GARMIN's entry-level model from the Forerunner series has finally outgrown its infancy. Full-blown pro features support you optimally in your development and always keep pace with your performance level even as your success grows. In terms of price and user-friendliness, the GPS multisport smartwatch is still aimed at beginners and hobby athletes – but in terms of design, range of functions and endurance, the successor to the Forerunner 45 continues to catch up with its bigger siblings such as the Forerunner 245 or 745.

The heart rate measurement on the wrist, together with GPS-based pace and distance information, ensures that you can always keep an eye on your performance. With daily workout recommendations for your running training and the Garmin running coach, you get additional support. And to get even more out of yourself or even prepare for your first race, you can now use the PacePro running function to access dynamic pace presets to better manage your efforts. The also newly added runtime forecast or your VO2Max value will help you to assess your performance level.

To support you on the bike, in the gym or on a run, the Forerunner 55 mutates into a true multisport watch with over 15 preinstalled sports apps. Fitness and health functions are not neglected either: From recovery time recommendations to 24/7 breath rate recording to menstruation tracking, the FR55 knows how to score points with many new features. Optional quick-change wristbands also give you the option to customise your fitness watch. With additional smart functions and a battery life of up to 14 days in smartwatch mode, the GARMIN Forerunner 55 is so suitable for everyday use that you won't want to take it off after sports.


Everything you need for your running training!

• INTEGRATED GPS: Record where you run and get accurate statistics including distance, pace and intervals. This way you can see exactly where you have been even after your training.
• 24/7 HEART RATE MEASUREMENT: Record your heart rate day and night and receive alerts when your heart rate remains too high at rest. The Forerunner 55 helps you assess how hard you are training during your activities.
• GARMIN COACH: These free adaptive training plans consist guidance from experienced coaches and are adjusted to you and your goals. Training plans directly synchronise with the watch.
• DAILY RUNNING TRAINING SUGGESTIONS: With personalised training suggestions, you'll get daily recommendations for your next run based on your training log, fitness level and recovery time.
• PACEPRO - KEEP THE RIGHT PACE: Receive dynamic pace settings based on the course profile and your planned strategy. This way you can adjust your effort to your goals at any time.
• TARGET TIME: Would you like to be supported in achieving your goal? Select a distance for the running session and a data page will display your estimated finish time.
• TRACK: If you want to do some fast sessions on the track, use the built-in track training activity to record accurate lap distances and see the distances in metres.
• CADENCE ALARMS: Do you want to improve your running form? Cadence alerts let you know when you are out of your target cadence range.
• RECOVERY ADVISOR: After every training, the watch shows you the time needed to recharge before your next training. It is based on the training intensity and factors such as stress and daily activities.
• RACE TIME ESTIMATE: The GARMIN Forerunner 55 running watch shows you your estimated finishing time for 5 km, 10 km, half marathon, marathon or an individually defined distance. This way you can better assess your performance and train specifically for your first competition.
• BUILT-IN SPORTS APPS: Add variety to your workout routine with activity profiles for track training, virtual running, pool swimming, Pilates, HIIT and even breathing exercises.
• LONG BATTERY LIFE: With a battery life of up to 14 days in smartwatch mode, you can even leave the charging cable at home on holiday. Up to 20 hours of runtime in GPS mode also offer sufficient reserves for intensive training sessions.


Your monitor for health and fitness!

• FITNESS TRACKING: When you're on the move, your Forerunner 55 fitness tracker records the number of steps, intensity minutes and more.
• KEEP AN EYE ON YOUR STRESS LEVELS: Find out if you're having a calm, balanced or stressful day. Get relaxation reminders to do a short breathing exercise.
• BODY BATTERY™-ENERGY LEVEL: Measure your body’s energy levels so that you know the best times for you to be active or to recover.
• INTENSITY MINUTES: Look at what time of day you got intensity minutes from moderate and high intensity physical activity.
• FITNESS AGE: This function uses chronological age, resting heart rate and other factors to calculate whether your body is younger or older than you. Because age is ultimately just a number.
• RESPIRATION TRACKING: Look at how your breathing is during the day, during sleep and during breathing exercises.
• MENSTRUAL CYCLE TRACKING: Use the Garmin Connect app to record your menstrual cycle or pregnancy. Record symptoms and get information on training and nutrition and much more.

• CONNECT IQ™ SHOP: Download display designs, add data fields, and get apps from the Connect IQ store.
• MUSIC FEATURES: Easily control the music playing on your phone so you can quickly skip tracks.
• SYNCHRONISATION WITH GARMIN CONNECT: You can upload your activities into the Garmin Connect app for better interaction with the popular online community. Members can make connections, compete against each other, or even share results with others over social media.
• SLIM DESIGN: The Forerunner 55 GPS running watch is equipped with a bright always-on colour display and is particularly comfortable to wear thanks to its slim, lightweight housing.
• QUICK CHANGE BRACELET: The 20 mm quick-change strap can be removed in seconds and replaced with optionally available straps in other colours. This way you can easily adapt your Forerunner 55 to the occasion.
