Compared to Fitbit, the Garmin Forerunner 265 is likely to be a more advanced device with more advanced health and fitness tracking capabilities. Fitbit is user-friendly and easy to use. It has a strong brand reputation and it may be a better choice for people who are just getting started with fitness tracking.
Compared to Apple, the Forerunner 265 is a more advanced device when it comes to fitness tracking, as Apple’s devices are generally geared more towards being a smartwatch. However, Apple devices are known for their sleek design and ease of use. Battery life will always be a huge advantage for Garmin over Apple.

The Garmin Forerunner 265 like its bigger brother, the Garmin Forerunner 965 are a refreshing new release in the market.
