Garmin Forerunner 45 Review

 

It's taken some time, but Garmin has an update to its Forerunner 35 watch in the form of the $199.99 Forerunner 45. It features an entirely new look, with a round color display, but it still packs all the basic features you need to track your runs and...

Accurate step count and heart rate readings in testing. Long battery life. Comfortable.

No third-party app support. Distance tracking can be better.

The Garmin Forerunner 45 watch updates its predecessor with a new look and a color display, but remains a solid fitness tracker for runners and anyone else who wants to track their workouts.

Garmin Forerunner 45 Review: Classic GPS Watch Gets a Fresh Face

 

Garmin's entry-level GPS watch is a solid workout companion, but it leaves a lot to be desired when it comes to the competition.

Samsung and Apple win when it comes to a more well-rounded smartwatch experience, but if sophisticated fitness-tracking is your highest priority, the Garmin Forerunner 45 is worth a look.

Easy to use ; Week-long battery life ; Works with Garmin Coach

Doesn’t have full Connect IQ support ; Lacks training insights ; Limited additional sports tracking

This watch sticks to the basics, but if you're looking for a simple and easy-to-use running watch, plus some added smartwatch features, the Forerunner 45 definitely fits the bill.

Garmin Forerunner 45 review

 

The Garmin Forerunner 45 is one of the best running watches in its price bracket could be just the ticket if you're in the market for an entry-level GPS fitness tracker. The Garmin Forerunner 45 is an upgrade to the budget-friendly Forerunner 35,...
