Leaked Garmin Forerunner 165 has nearly everything thrifty runners would want

What you need to know

  • Fitness Tracker Test has leaked specs for the unannounced Garmin Forerunner 165 running watch. 
  • Key hardware upgrades include a 1.2-inch AMOLED display, Elevate V4 sensor with HRV and SpO2, all-GNSS tracking, compass, and altimeter.
  • Key software improvements include running dynamics and power, open-water swimming metrics, Morning Report, Race Widget, and Nap Detection. 
  • Garmin intends to sell Music and non-Music versions and could launch the Forerunner 165 “soon.”

Leaked information from Garmin’s website suggests the Garmin Forerunner 165 will launch very soon, with some key upgrades over the Forerunner 55 to reclaim the budget running watch market. 

The leak, courtesy of Fitness Tracker Test, tells us nearly everything to expect from the watch except for its release date and price. While it’s a huge upgrade compared to the Forerunner 55, we have to wonder if this new model’s price will creep a bit too high as a result.
