Review Garmin Forerunner 955 review

Aug 23, 2022
I'm mostly interested in getting a high-end Garmin for open-water swimming. One of the problems with the Apple Series 3 that I currently use is that the controls are almost all via the touchscreen and it all seems to go to pot when the screen is wet and your fingers are cold. Seeing that the 955 is touchscreen and the 945 is not am I better off with the older model? Or can I completely bypass the touchscreen and use the side buttons whenever I need to?
