Latest Garmin Forerunner 965 leak shows off redesigned map and system UI

New details for Garmin’s upcoming smartwatch, the Forerunner 965have been leaked by yet another hasty online store giving us our first high-resolution look at the device.

The images come from swimming retailer SwimOutlet (opens in new tab) Showing off the device in two different colors: a metallic black and a bright greenish-yellow. At a glance, it appears the bezel around the watch face is smaller compared to the Forerunner 955. The extra room is probably for the new 1.4-inch AMOLED screen the upcoming watch is reported to have. Other shots reveal what the system UI will look like on the device such as more information being displayed at once on the main screen. The map feature has also been revamped. This time around, step-by-step directions will take up less space on the Forerunner 965’s face, making it easier to see where you’re going when using the map.

Other than that, not much else was revealed in the Swim Outlet listing. It’s unknown what other features, new or returning like the ECG app, will be on the Forerunner 965. There is, however, a price tag for the smartwatch: $599.99 making it cheaper than initial guesses. The release date remains a mystery, although a screenshot from the iRun.Fr website (opens in new tab), an online French fitness retailer, hints at a March 2 launch which is less than a week away. But even that date is debatable as others have claimed it is actually March 14.
