Garmin Forerunner 245 Music review: Hitting all the right notes


If you are taking your running more seriously and don't want to spend big on a tracker then the Forerunner 245 should offer you all you need and more.

Slimmer and lighter design ; New training insights ; Easy to use music features

Battery drain with music streaming ; Missing altimeter ; No Garmin Pay

If you are taking your running more seriously and you can’t stomach paying big money for a top-end Garmin, the Forerunner 245 should offer you all you need and give you a solid smartwatch experience too.

Garmin Forerunner 245/245 Music review: Everything a runner needs


The Garmin Forerunner 245 is a worthy replacement to the excellent Forerunner 235

Accurate and detailed sports tracking ; Music playback and Spotify support ; Breadcrumb navigation ; 24 hours of GPS battery life

No native support for power meters ; No triathlon mode

Although the Forerunner 235 is still worth considering at its new lower price of £170, the baton for the best-value serious running watch has well and truly been passed to its successor, the Forerunner 245 Music.
