Garmin has launched latest installments in Forerunner series , Garmin Forerunner replaces FR 245 which is still selling for around 25k
So when will it launch in india ? Looks around first week of July, Instinct 2 series came to india after around 1 month of delay, so should be similar, as FR255 is Garmin’s best seller in terms of price/features ratio.
Expected Price of Garmin Forerunner 255 & 255s in India ?
Instinct 2 / 2s MRP is 349 USD in USA, but it sells for two different prices in india
Instinct 2S – INR 33,990 https://www.garmin.co.in/products/wearables/instinct-2s-graphite/
Instinct 2 – INR 36,990 – https://www.garmin.co.in/products/wearables/instinct-2-graphite/
So based on above pricing of instinct 2 series, FR255 could be priced as below:
Forerunner 255s – INR 32,990
Forerunner 255 – INR 35,990
Above are expected regional pricing as per past trends, so it could be slightly higher or lower
I am surely waiting to buy same if it is priced at this price range, was planning for FR245 but with new sensor and future updates, FR255 seems to be a better choice.
Major Upgrades in FR255:
- upto 14 Days(with mix use even if it lasts 7 days, it will be great)
- New HR sensor
- Featherlight – just 1.7oz weight
- HRV Status
- HR/Sleep/Stress/SPO2 Monitoring
- Body Battery
- NFC payments ( might not work in india )
- Multiple watchfaces via APP
