Garmin has officially introduced the Forerunner 55, a GPS smartwatch designed for people of all skill levels to track their stats and achieve their fitness goals.
It has PacePro that guides you in tailoring your efforts to a selected course or distance. Its finish time estimator lets you select a run distance and view your estimated finish time right on the wrist.
For those hoping to improve their running form, the Forerunner 55 features cadence alerts to let runners know when they have gone outside their target cadence range.
The Forerunner 55 makes switching workout routines easy, thanks to several built-in activity profiles, including track or virtual running, pool swimming, Pilates and HIIT.
The smartwatch also has Garmin Coach training plans that offer on-screen guidance from expert coaches and free 5K, 10K, or half marathon training plans based on your running goals.
The Body Battery energy monitor lets you track energy levels to find the best times for activity and rest, and gain insights into when and how intensity minutes are earned throughout the day.
Additionally, women can track their menstrual cycle or pregnancy, and receive exercise and nutrition tips through the Garmin Connect app.
You can also receive text messages and view social media updates, emails, and more directly on your Forerunner smartwatch.
Built-in assistance and incident detection let you send a message with your real-time location to emergency contacts.
The Forerunner 55 features up to two weeks of battery life on smartwatch mode and up to 20 hours on GPS mode.
