Garmin Forerunner 265 review: It's a prettier 255, and that's okay

One day, I’d like to ask Garmin’s engineers how they release so many watches in rapid succession. As to how the Garmin Forerunner 265 shipped less than a year after its predecessor, though, the answer is obvious: they slapped a new AMOLED coat of paint on the Forerunner 255 display, added a couple of new features so no one would get suspicious, and changed the number.

I’m being both reductive and facetious, but the point stands that the Forerunner 265 is an iterative upgrade made to address Garmin users’ frustration with memory-in-pixel displays — not because the Forerunner 255 is suddenly obsolete.
