    • Monitor your overall health and wellness with wrist-based heart rate1 and more.
    • Take guesswork out of training. This smartwatch suggests runs tailored to you.

    The Garmin Forerunner 55 has all the running essentials.

    BUILT-IN GPS

    Track where you run, and get accurate stats, including distance, pace and intervals.

    WRIST-BASED HEART RATE

    Get heart rate data1 along with alerts if your heart rate stays high while you’re at rest. Even gauge how hard your heart is working during activities.

    GARMIN COACH

    These adaptive training plans feature guidance from expert coaches and free training plans that adapt to you and your goals. Workouts sync right to your watch from the Garmin Connect™ app2.

    DAILY SUGGESTED WORKOUTS

    For personalized training guidance, get daily run recommendations of varying intensities based on your training history, fitness level and recovery time.

    PACEPRO™ TECHNOLOGY

    To help you plan your race day strategy, this feature offers GPS-based pace guidance for a selected course or distance in the Garmin Connect app. So you can tailor your efforts to what’s ahead.

    FINISH TIME

    Want some guidance to help you meet your goal? Select a distance for your run, and you’ll be able to see a data screen that shows your estimated finish time.

    TRACK RUN

    When you’re ready to hit the track for some speedwork, use the built-in track run activity to record accurate lap distances and see your distances in meters.

    CADENCE ALERTS

    Want to improve your running form? Use the cadence alerts to know when you’ve gone outside your target cadence range.

    Giving your body time to recover between training sessions is crucial. After each workout, the built-in recovery time feature will let you know how long to rest before another big effort.

    BATTERY LIFE
    Run to your heart’s content with up to 2 weeks of battery life in smartwatch mode and up to 20 hours in GPS mode.
