Forerunner 245 - Grey

You do the running. Forerunner 245 does the thinking. This GPS smartwatch doesn’t just tell you where you ran. It tracks your stats, crunches the numbers and gets to know all about your performance, your running form, your training history and even your goals. All you need to focus on is putting one foot in front of the other.

Advanced Performance Analytics

What amount of training is right for you? Forerunner 245 offers personalized training and recovery insight for smarter training decisions, helping you prepare for your next race. It keeps tabs on your VO2 max and understands how heat and altitude impact your performance. And the higher your VO2 max, the higher you can expect to perform, which is exactly what is shown by the performance condition metric. Training status evaluates your recent exercise history and performance indicators to let you know if you’re training productively, peaking or overreaching. See how your workouts influence the development of endurance, speed and power with aerobic and anaerobic training effect feedback. Recovery time helps you maximize the benefit of your efforts by predicting when you will be ready for your next tough challenge. You can even view your overall training load, which measures your exercise volume from the last 7 days and compares it to the optimal range for your fitness and recent training history.

More Ways to Work Out

Running is what you do, so train smarter with the tools available from our Garmin Connect online fitness community. Create your own custom workouts, or download free ones that sync right to your watch. Or, if you’ve got a specific goal in mind for your next 5K, check out Garmin Coach. Featuring guidance from expert coaches and free training plans that adapt to you and your goals, it’s a foolproof way to get to the finish line. As part of your training plan, it can even help you predict your race time. What about when you want to switch it up? Forerunner 245 also has activity profiles for cycling, pool swimming, indoor rowing and even for using the elliptical or stair-stepper.

Analyze Your Running Form

The Forerunner 245 GPS smartwatch also has the tools you need to improve your running form. The watch measures crucial running metrics such as cadence, stride length, ground contact time and balance, vertical oscillation and vertical ratio. These measurements are the key to understanding your form, so you can bring your best on every run and at every race. Your Forerunner 245 can start tracking these metrics with the addition of a compatible heart rate strap or the compact Running Dynamics Pod, which clips right onto your waistband.

More Ways to Customize

Check out our Connect IQ Store, where you can add personality to Forerunner 245 by downloading apps, widgets, watch faces and more. It’s easy and — even better — it’s free. New apps are added every day, so you can keep tabs on when your Uber will arrive, turn on your lights at home with the SmartThings app, and even use the AccuWeather MinuteCast app to find out when the rain will start.

Stay Connected on the Run

Forerunner 245 makes it easy to run without leaving important smart features behind. Once paired with your compatible smartphone, you’ll be able to receive text messages and see social media updates, emails and more right on your wrist. And new safety and tracking features make it easy to share your location with chosen contacts in case you need assistance — manually, or automatically with built-in incident detection, if needed. So, lace up your shoes, and head out with a little extra peace of mind.

Share and Compete

Syncing your activities to Garmin Connect is for more than just storing your data. Garmin Connect is a thriving online community where people on the go can connect and compete by joining challenges, encourage each other’s successes and even share their triumphs via social media. Garmin Connect is free and available on the web or on your smartphone.

Wellness and Advanced Sleep Monitoring

The Forerunner 245 smartwatch has tools to help keep tabs on your overall well-being and the sleep you’re getting at night. These tools provide crucial insight you can use to maximize your training. For example, it’s our first running watch to include a Pulse Ox sensor. This wrist-based sensor estimates your body’s blood oxygen saturation, which can help gauge how your body is absorbing oxygen — especially while you sleep. And to give you an idea of how you’re sleeping, Forerunner 245 tracks your light, deep and REM stages of sleep, along with movement throughout the night. It also features all-day stress monitoring for wellness tracking during the day. If your stress level starts to climb, use the relaxation breathing timer for a few minutes of guided breathing, which can help calm your mind and body. And to help you optimize your body’s energy, Body Battery™ energy monitoring uses collected data to gauge your energy reserves at any moment, so you can plan your day to optimize times for activity and rest.

    Enjoying the forerunner 245

    Good service and delivery. Forerunner 245 has much improved battery life. Have enjoyed running with it. Easy to read and has more than enough statistics for me.

    Great fitness and health tracker

    Everything is great except sleep tracking

    Pros: Heaps of features
    Cons: Sleep monitoring is nowhere near as good as Fitbit. Garmin says I’m asleep whilst in bed watching tv. Old Fitbit charge 2 could tell the difference when resting and actually sleeping

    Great device full of features at a decent price.

    I've never had a fitness tracker or watch before but I find it hard to imagine I'd need much more than this device offers, would highly recommend for anyone looking for a general fitness tracker.

    Pros: Battery life is amazing
    Cons: I still have to do the exercise myself

    Great smart watch, works flawlessly.

    This is a great smart watch combined with the app provides a lot of information. I got this watch because of the Heart rate sensor, blood oxygen sensor. Stress Level Indicator, and Body Battery Level. It has actually pushed me to change certain aspects of my life by seeing the effect of alcohol, late night eating, and other factors on body battery, and stress. If you have your phone on you during exercise, theres no need to buy the music version of this watch as the no music version controls your phone faultlessly (Using spotify in my case). Great Watch.

    Pros: Everything just works. Johnny appleseed service fast and flawless as usual.
    Cons: The app is a little confusing, ie. Where to go to change certain settings etc.

    very happy with performance of device so far

    Bought watch to replace Forerunner 920XT (from 2015) with the aim of using this watch as a running watch for distances up to and including marathon. I have no need for music on the watch. No issues setting up the watch paired with the phone app. Found that to get the advertised life of the battery had to turn a few options off the watch but am prepared to switch things on as required. No problems pairing the watch with a Garmin chest HRM. Longest run with the watch so far is 33km, no problems to report, sits fine on the wrist. Don't mind the style of the thin/thick digits on the stopwatch display but would prefer a slightly thinner font (or a custom font choice) to display h:m:s in one font style, rather than showing the hour in a superscript style so it is a bit easier to see. Like being able to change the watch face design through ConnectIQ. Fine with the position of the charging port on the watch base as I don't intend to charge the watch on a run but a longer USB cable would have been nice. No problems syncing runs to Garmin Connect and third parties via Bluetooth, can just switch Bluetooth on and off for the upload. Took a little bit of time to learn the button layout and navigation but fine with that now. Have not yet tested uploaded route maps or training sessions (e.g. Mona fartlek). To sum up, yes I would recommend the watch. Lots of things to customise. Would describe the disadvantages I mention as minor that don't have much effect on the watch in general.

    Pros: lightweight, able to customise watch face
    Cons: hour value shown as superscript during run, longer USB cable would be nice
