the Garmin Forerunner 955 and 255 watches were found on the website of a Singaporean government agency, suggesting their release is imminent.
The leak was first spotted by Gadgets & Wearables, when the publication searched for the term “Forerunner 255” on the website of the Singapore government’s telecommunications licensing system agency. No less than six Forerunner 255 models are listed here: a standard 255, a 255s – which is supposed to be a smaller version of the already lightweight mid-range watch – and several slightly more premium “musical” versions of both watches.
However, we also tried a separate search on the same website for the Forerunner 955, and voila, we found it. It’s a single model rather than many, but you can see the Singapore government agency list below:
the Garmin Forerunner 245 and 945 watches were first released in April 2019, over three years ago, and they’re still going strong, which means the new models in the range are big news. In recent months, rumors of their impending replacements have grown, especially when a massive leak has potentially revealed seven of Garmin’s next watches.
Analysis: Six new Forerunner 255 watches?
The six different models listed by the Singaporean agency are limited to names and brief descriptions. The Forerunner 255 and Forerunner 255 could be considered the “base” models, with Bluetooth and ANT+.
However, the four most advanced Forerunners (two 255s and two 255s) are listed as “musical” models that also offer Wi-Fi connectivity, but there aren’t many other clues to determine other factors. of differentiation.
Could one of them be a solar-powered watch, extending battery life while you run? Potentially, but that’s unlikely at an average price – although it’s not the first time Garmin has used solar technology in this update cycle, as January’s Fenix 7 arrived with solar options and not solar.
Meanwhile, the Garmin Forerunner 955 is listed as a single model, as you might expect: while the Forerunner 245 was a mid-range watch that might have to pick its features to stay in this competitive price range, the Forerunner 945 is a premium triathlon watch that can do it all – no need for an ‘s’ model here. We’re looking at a potential release date in June for more information.
