Description

Track your workouts and train smarter with the Forerunner 245 GPS Running Smartwatch from Garmin. While geared primarily for running, the Forerunner 245 also features activity profiles for cycling, pool swimming, elliptical, and more. Whatever the exercise, the Forerunner 245 utilizes training status monitoring to provide you with helpful performance analytics. Learn your VO2 max, aerobic and anaerobic training data, and optimal recovery time to help you optimize your workouts.

The Forerunner 245 also helps you monitor your health and wellness in-between workouts. The Forerunner 245 can monitor your sleep quality, your blood oxygen saturation with a built-in Pulse Ox sensor, and your stress levels 24/7. It's all collected in your Body Battery data, which gauges your likely energy reserves at any given moment.

In addition to tracking and monitoring, the Forerunner 245 has social features, such as Garmin Connect for community support, Garmin Coach for training plans and guidance, and general notification updates from your paired iOS or Android smartphone.

Performance Analytics with VO2 Max

Support for VO2 max and training status monitoring allows the Forerunner 245 to provide ratings and feedback that evaluate your performance. It will let you know if you're training at your peak or if you're pushing too hard. Know how your workouts are affecting your endurance, speed, and power with aerobic and anaerobic feedback. Recovery time is incorporated as well, letting you know exactly when you can tackle your next challenge. If you need to review your history, the Forerunner 245 lets you access your 7 days of exercise data and can compare it to an optimal range for your personal fitness and training history.

Wellness and Sleep

When you're not exercising, it's important to make sure you keep stress levels in check and get quality sleep. To help make sure you're adequately caring for your body between workouts, the Forerunner 245 can track your sleep, movement throughout the night, and with the built-in Pulse Ox sensor, it can measure your body's blood oxygen saturation. It also has all-day stress monitoring with a relaxation-breathing timer. When it's triggered, guided breathing helps to calm you. All of this feeds into your Body Battery data, which gives you an indication of how much energy you have in reserve at any moment.

Garmin Connect and Garmin Coach

The Forerunner 245 supports both Garmin Connect and Garmin Coach, which are tools to help you get advice and help with your training regime. Garmin Community is an online fitness community for sharing achievements, providing and supplying motivation with others, and challenges you can join to push you further along in achieving your fitness goals. Garmin Coach gives you access to expert coaches and free training plans that are adaptable to your personal fitness goals.

Stay Connected

Pair the Forerunner 245 with your smartphone and you'll gain the ability to stay connected with the outside world while working out. Receive text messages, social media updates, emails, and more right on your wrist.

Safety Tracking

When paired with your smartphone, you can use the safety-tracking feature to share your location with specific contacts. If you are lost, hurt, or otherwise in need of help, you can use this feature to manually contact someone. There is also built-in incident detection that can contact someone for you automatically when triggered.

Connect IQ Store Support

Access the Connect IQ Store to customize your Forerunner 245 with more personality and functionality. Download apps, widgets, watch faces, and more.

Become a Better Runner

It's one thing to monitor your achievements, but it's entirely something else to monitor how you achieve them. With the addition of an optional compatible heart rate strap or Running Dynamics Pod, this sports smartwatch can analyze and provide feedback on critical running metrics, such as cadence, stride length, ground contact time and balance, vertical oscillation, and vertical ratio. Combining all of these metrics together can provide you with a better understanding of how you run and what you may need to change to possibly achieve better results.
