You do the running. And the Forerunner 245 does the thinking. This GPS smart watch doesn't just tell you where you ran. It also tracks your stats, processes data and evaluates everything about your performance, technique, training history and even your personal goals. All you need to worry about is putting one foot in front of the other.
Advanced performance analysis:
How much training is right for you? Forerunner 245 features individualised training and tips for recovery so you can make the best decisions about your training and better prepare for the next run. Train smarter with VO2 max and find out how heat and altitude affect performance. The higher the number, the more likely you are to perform at your best, which is exactly what performance condition indicates. Training status automatically 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 to maximise the benefits of your effort by predicting when you'll be ready for the next challenge. You can also see your general 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.
If you like running, train smarter with the tools available in our online sports community, Garmin Connect. Create your own customised training sessions or download free training to synchronise directly with the watch. Or, if you have a specific goal in mind for your next 5K, try Garmin Coach. With 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 a part of the personal training plan, you can even get help to predict your run time. What if you feel like a change? Forerunner 245 also features activity profiles for cycling, pool swimming, indoor rowing, elliptical, stair-stepper and more.
Analyses your running technique:
The GPS Forerunner 245 also features the tools you need to improve your running technique. It measures important running metrics such as cadence, stride length, ground contact time balance, vertical oscillation and vertical ratio. These measurements are the key to understanding your technique, so you can put your best foot forward in each run and each competition. The Forerunner 245 can start to follow these metrics if you add a compatible strap heart rate monitor or the compact Running Dynamics Pod, which clips comfortably onto your waistband.
Stay connected while you run:
Forerunner 245 means you can run without neglecting important smart features. Once you've paired your compatible smartphone, you'll be able to receive text messages, as well as see your e-mails or the latest updates from your social networks, and more, directly from your wrist. The new tracking and safety features with built-in incident detection technology make it easy to share your location manually or automatically with contacts you choose if you need help. So grab your trainers and head out for a workout with peace of mind.
Share and compete:
The Forerunner 245 smart watch features tools to help you maintain control of your general wellness and sleep. These tools provide essential information for maximising your workout. For example, this is our first running watch that features a pulse oximeter. 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 optimise your body's energy, the Body Battery(TM) Energy Monitor calculates your energy reserves at any time thanks to the information collected, so you can plan your day and optimise activity and rest.
