Whether on the street, trail or water, there's a Garmin Forerunner watch that's perfect for you.
The Garmin Forerunner 35 features a Virtual Pacer to give you updates on your pace, distance and time so you know when to hit the gas or pump the brakes. It also helps you stay motivated with personal record alerts. Testers in our Garmin Forerunner 35 review raved about the all the capabilities packed into the watch that make it feel like it costs a lot more.
An update to the 35, Garmin designed the Forerunner 45 to be a simple, accurate GPS watch at the right price. Like the 35, the 45 tracks distance, pace and time. But this time around it gets improved software, a round face and added safety features, like automatic incident detection that will alert your contacts if something happens.
For runners who crave more data, the Garmin Forerunner 245 brings customizable training plans, heart-rate monitoring and Garmin Connect features right to your wrist. Designers built the 245 with the same quick-release silicone straps as other Garmin watches, so it's soft, comfortable and lightweight. Plus, it comes with a waterproof rating of 5 ATM, which means it will hold tight down to depths of 50m—ideal for summertime swims or unexpected downpours.
In our review of the Garmin Forerunner 245 Music, our tester says, "This is hands down the most comfortable watch I have ever worn."
The series-leading Garmin Forerunner 645 Music incorporates up to 500 tunes into the smart timepiece. Plus, Garmin packed GPS, big battery life and a color display into the slim profile watch. Testers in Fleet Feet's Garmin Forerunner 645 Music review say the running watch does everything serious runners need and plenty more.
Compared with other Garmin running watches, the Forerunner series matches the right features with the right price to help you train better.
