Price, specifications and release date

(Pocket Ribbon) – A listing for the Garmin Forerunner 955 has appeared on the company’s Australian website, leading to speculation that an official announcement is pending.

As we saw prior to the launch of the Garmin Venu 2 Plus – and similar leaks for the Fenix ​​7 – a semi-complete webpage detailing the unconfirmed running watch was spotted by eagle-eyed users of a Garmin subreddit.

The page has of course been removed now and was also done before it could be cached by Google. Unlike other leaks, this listing also didn’t show the device in images, which usually gives us the near-confirmation that the successor to the Forerunner 945 will indeed be a 955 model.

Of course, with Garmin revamping almost every other Forerunner device in recent years, including an LTE version of the Forerunner 945 in the US last year, there was always going to be a new generation of the flagship running watch. the near future.

Aside from the name, the offer also reveals that it will ship with LTE and the bundle will cost AU$1,049 (around $750 / £550). Normally Garmin offers its top of the range Forerunner with a chest strap heart rate monitor for improved accuracy.

Since the LTE model of the 945 hasn’t launched in Australia, this indicates that the 955 will come with the feature as standard (or maybe just the option in more regions), while the price increase remains pretty much in line with what we’d expect. , and what we saw from the Fenix ​​7’s jump. Currently, the 945 LTE model is available for $649.99 without the included chest strap, so it’s fair to estimate that a ‘standard’ 955 LTE model would be closer to $700.

Price speculation aside, it’s important to keep in mind that we also have no idea when Garmin will announce an official release date for the next-generation running watch – if at all.
