  • Pretty good so far
    Reviewed by ney_ney1978 - October 2, 2021

    I have loved Garmin for years! I've had forerunners since the 15. With each one there has been updates and changes. The 55 is no different. I went with the aqua since it's my favorite color! I feel like it fits better on my arm with the removable bands instead of the slightly curved band of my 45. It does everything I need, tracking steps, heartrate, and everything else. I love the breath work option, and stair step option. I'm working on getting a better fitness age and volmax. It seems on this one though that the buttons have a more springy feel to them, but works good. Customer service at garmin is always accommodating and helpful.

  • Great Fitness Tracker
    Reviewed by MarkyB - September 20, 2021

    I've had the forerunner 55 for several weeks and it's a really great watch/fitness tracker. It's extremely responsive and has an always on display, so no waiting for the screen to wake up to check your stopwatch for intervals or pace information. It collects plenty of data for people like me who love data, and I haven't had any problems whatsoever syncing or using any of the great features, like workouts. It does have a learning curve since it uses 5 buttons instead of a touchscreen, but I think it's a fair tradeoff to get an always on display and 2 weeks of battery life. The screen resolution is enough, but it makes for a pixelated display that is not as sharp and some other smart watches.

  • WHAT THE HECK?
    Reviewed by AF23322 - August 25, 2021

    I JUST purchased this watch, have had it maybe 2 weeks and the battery already drains within a day. The first week everything was fine, the charge held the entire time. I would top off the charge for a few minutes here and there. Monday my watch was fully charged, Tuesday morning the battery was at 10%. Charged it to 100%. Woke up for an am run on Wednesday and may watch is down to 20% already. I love this watch, I don't know what happened but I'm super disappointed that something so costly is already being defective.
