GARMIN Forerunner 245 Running Watch - Slate, Universal
You're unique. That's why your training should be too. The Garmin Forerunner 245 Running Watch evaluates how you're training and lets you know if you're undertraining or overdoing it.
Helping you make smarter decisions, it keeps tabs on your VO2 max (oxygen consumption) and understands how heat and altitude affect your performance.

For runners, for everyone
Practise makes perfect. The Forerunner 245 measures running metrics, such as cadence, stride length, and ground contact time and balance, so you can improve your running form.
It's not just for running either. There are sport activity modes and gym profiles so you can measure your performance on the bike, whether you choose to train indoors or outdoors. For swimming, it'll measure your performance in the pool, and even detect what type of stroke you're doing.
Pair the Forerunner 245 to your smartphone and you'll get notifications for texts, calls, and apps straight to your wrist. There are controls for your music, apps for weather and your calendar, and it can even help you find your misplaced phone.
Let your friends and family know you're safe by sharing your location – manually, or automatically with built-in incident detection.
