On February 2, Garmin unveiled the long-awaited Forerunner 265 and 965 watches. The Forerunner 265 was available to buy on the day, with immediate shipping, but runners wanting to get their hands on the higher-end 965 have to wait a little longer. In fact, Garmin didn't give an exact launch date for the device, simply saying that it would be available later in the month.
If you want to be first to get your hands on the Forerunner 965, you'll need to place a pre-order, so we've rounded up all the best places in the US to reserve one for yourself, along with any perks you can expect from the different retailers.
In the UK, Wiggle is currently taking orders for the black colorway, but not yellow and white. You can sign up to receive notifications when it's available direct from Garmin. We'll update this guide once more retailers open pre-orders.
Pre-order Garmin Forerunner 965 in the US
Garmin Forerunner 965: $599.99 at Garmin
Garmin says it expects the Forerunner 965 to ship in three to five weeks, and if you live in the UK you can place your order with Garmin itself right now. You'll get free second-day shipping when it becomes available (provided you're not having it sent to a PO box).
Garmin Forerunner 965: $599.99 at Running Warehouse
Running Warehouse has the watch available for pre-order, but you'll have to wait longer to get it on your wrist because it's not expected in stock until mid-April. Free shipping is available, or you can opt for overnight delivery for $9.95.
