The Forerunner 265 is available in black/grey, aqua blue and white stone, while the smaller 265s model comes in a striking black and yellow combo, light pink and a lighter white stone.
It’s worth pointing out that both watches will feature an AMOLED screen. This is backed up by previous leaks, but without official confirmation, it’s hard to be sure. As far as specs go, nothing else hasn’t been leaked. Previous rumors claimed the Forerunner 265’s battery life was “up to 13 days in smartwatch mode” [or] 20 hours in GPS mode” will cost approximately $449 to $499—depending on the region.
Of course, take everything here with a grain of salt. Things can always change at the last minute. However, given the frequency of these leaks over the past month or so, we probably won’t have to wait long for Garmin to announce something.
