Whether you're improving your fitness to tackle a local 5K or entertaining more serious ambitions, Forerunner 245 is an outstanding training companion.

Built-in heart rate monitoring

Experts agree that heart rate monitoring is an essential tool for getting the most out of a training cycle. There's really no better way to ensure that you push hard enough during your key workouts and that you back off enough on the intensity when you need recovery. Forerunner 245's wrist-based monitoring technology makes it easy to monitor your heart rate and hit your target zones, so you'll know when you need to dial it up and when you need to take it down a notch. As an added bonus, Forerunner 245 can measure your Pulse Ox level on the fly — an important tool when you're acclimating to high altitudes.

Smart notifications

Forerunner 245 works with your smartphone to let you receive texts, emails, and alerts on the watch screen. That same connection lets you check weather forecasts on the fly and even control the music on your smartphone. When you're done with your run, Forerunner 245 automatically uploads your workout to Garmin Connect, where you can share it with your friends through social media or many popular fitness-tracking apps. Garmin's Live Tracking feature lets your family and friends track you in real time, and Incident Detection can notify your emergency contacts if an accident occurs.

Improve your running

Forerunner 245 offers great tools and analytics for runners, including vital pace and time metrics along with your heart rate. Using the data it records, it will estimate and track your VO2 max, predicting your performance and suggesting training paces. You can track the data by customizing the display with a variety of data fields, or even change the watch face through Garmin Connect.

Keeping it fresh

Cross-training should be in every runner's training program, and Forerunner 245 is well-equipped for these sessions. When you're in the pool, this watch tracks your distance, pace, stroke count, and more. And quit worrying about keeping track of laps during those long pool sessions — it'll count those for you too.  Forerunner 245 will track your distance and pace like a champ when you're riding a bike, and it offers a variety of gym activities to choose from, including indoor rowing and yoga.
