Product description Garmin Forerunner 245

Forerunner 245 is a smart watch with which you will achieve your goals. Thanks to its advanced functions, you will know indicators based on your state: performance dynamics, balance of contact with the ground, length of the stride, among others.

With the use of this device, you will get exercise plans or execute personalized trainings from the Garmin Connect platform. Within the broker community, you can share your data and encourage the success of your teammates. This technological equipment can be customized with watch covers and applications.

The battery life of the tracker reaches 24 hours with the use of GPS and extends 7 days smart watch mode. With this watch, you will improve your way of running and you will be attentive to the notifications of your cellular device. From the comfort of your wrist, you can review text messages, view updates from social networks, share the location with selected contacts. The intelligent equipment has the Pulse Ox sensor that calculates the level of oxygen saturation in the blood. Also, it has a Body Battery that measures the levels of energy in the body.

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 personalised 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. 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 maximise 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.

Analyse 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 customise:
- 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, challenge yourself with the Strava Relative Effort 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. 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 sleep3 you´re getting at night. These tools provide crucial insight you can use to maximise your training. For example, it´s our first running watch to include a Pulse Ox sensor4. 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 help you optimise 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 optimise times for activity and rest.

Great product!


Product quality, no complaints. I already owned a 405 forerunner for 11 years. Garmin watches are really on top. On the delivery side, it was a bit long for a product supposedly in stock. Ordered on 04/21 and delivered on May 7. Given the current context, this may be understandable.

Excellent watch


Very good complete and inexpensive watch. Very light and good size for women or small wrists. Delivery a little long, I would have liked to have a more precise date.



Fast delivery. fabulous product

Garmin forerunner 245


Fantastic watch very light and very comfortable, how not to have it, excellent app to manage it.



arrived in 2 days. Beautiful, light and does everything it says. I'm super happy

Garmin forerunner 245


It arrived quite quickly and the price was the lowest. Very complete watch (quality / price).

Garmin 245


Very good and very complete! Top quality / price ratio ...



Super watch. Registers so much more than my previous Huawei. Top product ... Only I can't find how notifications from my mobile phone appear on my watch.



Does this watch also track indoor racing? Bike ?

our experts answer

Hello! It can be used for indoor training, such as running on an indoor track or riding an exercise bike. GPS is disabled for indoor activities. When you run or walk with GPS turned off, speed, distance, and cadence are calculated using the device´s accelerometer. The accelerometer is automatically calibrated. Accuracy of speed, distance, and cadence data increases after a few runs or walks outdoors using GPS. Thanks for your question!

Virtual run


I am looking for a watch that can connect to Zwift via virtual run. I think in this case it would work. Can you confirm it for me?

our experts answer

Hi, Yes, according to the indications of zwift the garmin 245 is compatible. regards

Super cardio watch


Having the Forerunner 230 before, I wanted to switch to a wrist watch. I'm very happy, we can find lots of data related to heart rate. It is really interesting for athletes curious about the effects of training. I recommend this watch with many possibilities!

Good choice


Very complete the best price / benefit choice



Fast order, same delivery. Very good product, more discreet and light than the 235. Better ergonomics and more functionalities for sport. I valid.



Was arrived 5 days later than expected. Well satisfied with the product, it works perfectly. Despite the Chinese manual, I was able to set the watch properly.

Maria dolores


Good buy very happy good watch and try to buy everything came very well and in a short time, they have won a customer I will continue to buy thanks for all greetings

Garmin forerunner 245


Secure purchase, like all I have made, of an ecxcellent product with Garmin quality

Shipping which took 8 days!


Purchase of the forerunner 245 ordered on Sunday received the Monday after. Announced for Thursday at the latest. Birthday without gift, great!



This watch is very practical and compact, the size of the dial is smaller than that of the 230. Good product. I recommend it

A watch for athletes


I highly recommend, a great and functional garmin model.



I am a thin girl and it looks great, it doesn't look big or heavy. The operation once again has not let me down the garmin foranner range and for the price I bought it with the black friday super discount it is well worth it.



Excellent product, Garmin quality. The purchase on RunnerInn was safe and excellent delivery speed! Recommended!!

Good training tool


Great product at a well-priced price, great training resources combined with simple and effective software. Very pleased with my purchase.



I have already been using it for a few months and I am delighted with it, I recommend it in particular for athletes and runners, keep in mind that the chest band is essential for the short series and the track, the rest is all great.



As the owner of the Forerunner 310XT I can only say that the improvements that are there are useful and important, heart rate monitoring with a pulse sensor is a great help in your training without the discomfort of a heart rate monitor. Then we also add the notification function, perfect.



Great watch!!! After 8 hours of active training, 65% of the charge

Excellent product


Excellent product, the weekend I tried it in the CDMX marathon and it was a great help. I arrive at the stipulated time

Upgrade from fr235


i´ve upgraded to 245 from 235. the watch is less bulky despite having a bigger screen. menus are intuitive and cleaner but most of the changes are exclusively aesthetic. the new training status is useful if you do your own training plan. as for the health stats (stress and body battery), they are nice to have but feel somewhat unreliable. i can recommend this watch if you feel your are looking outdated or looking for a new watch and don't mind spending the extra € 100 for a newer look. as for the functionalities, the core is basically the same as the 235.
