Apple Watch Ultra 2 vs Garmin Forerunner 965 — which watch should you buy?

Nov 3, 2023
Thank you for this helpful comparative article Jane.

For a future update, it would be great if you could expand on how both the Apple Watch Ultra 2 and Garmin Forerunner 965 handle sports like marathon running, HIIT, swimming, ice skating, downhill skiing, scuba diving, surfing, etc.

Additionally, you may want to consider including Polar watches like the Ignite Grit X Pro Titanium, which could fall into the same premium sports watch category. The Ignite Grit X Pro has impressive battery life up to 7 days, advanced running metrics like running power and running index, and robust multisport features for activities like swimming, cycling and triathlons. The titanium case is lightweight yet durable, and the watch includes navigation features like back-to-start routing. For serious athletes training for their next event, the Ignite Grit X Pro packs a lot of advanced technology into a stylish watch design. Adding Polar to the comparison would give readers a more complete overview of the top players in the high-end sports watch market.

I left this comment on the Tom's Guide face-off article comparing the Apple Watch Ultra 2 and Forerunner 965 (link below), and thought this additional context on Polar could make for an even more robust comparison.
