Garmin Forerunner 945 review


Garmin's Forerunner 945 takes fitness tracking to a whole new level with a feature list that is beyond compare. We spent some time with the Forerunner 945 to find out if all these features are worth the watch's high price tag.

Packs a ton of features into a compact watch ; Onboard maps ensure you won’t get lost ; Pulse Oximeter aids in acclimation ; 24/7 heart rate monitoring with stress mentoring ; Music including Spotify and Deezer

Fitbit schmitbit. Garmin's new fitness tracker makes step counters look archaic

Garmin Forerunner 945 GPS watch review


Garmin's newest GPS watch for endurance athletes gets longer battery life, built-in music and mobile payments.

Even longer battery life than previous models ; New music and payment features ; Similar features to Fenix 5x line but more affordable


($349) to get the same functionality in a lighter, smaller, and less expensive watch. But if you need a GPS watch that will go the distance — just like you — the Forerunner 945 is worth the investment.

Garmin Forerunner 945 LTE In-Depth Review


I know, I can hear the screams already ‘But…but…but…Forerunner 955!'. So no, this is not a (or the) Forerunner 955 – at least in name. But in spirit, it mostly is. So much so that Garmin themselves even long debated about calling it the Forerunner 955,...

Garmin Forerunner 945 LTE review (hands on): A perfect running watch for an imperfect world


Garmin's newest elite running watch adds LTE for some peace of mind

Good design ; Long battery life ; Accurate tracking

Expensive ; Lots of menus

But peace of mind doesn’t come cheap: The Forerunner 945 LTE costs $650, plus an additional $5 per month for its LTE connection. Stay tuned for our full review.

Garmin Forerunner 945 Multisport Watch In-Depth Review


Ahh yes, the moment you've all been waiting for has arrived: The plastic Fenix 5 Plus. Except, wait…not really. Yes, it has everything the Fenix 5 Plus does, but it actually has more. It's got special sauce both from a hardware and a software...

Garmin Forerunner 945 review


The Garmin Forerunner 945 is packed full of running tech, but do you really need it?

Very accurate GPS and heart rate Useful full-color maps Superb battery life

Expensive Iffy swim tracking Rugged design

The Garmin Forerunner 945 offers everything a serious runner should need from a wearable and then some. You'll probably never use every feature, but if running is your focus and you're training at a high level, then this is the watch for you. Everyone...

Garmin Forerunner 945 review: The ultimate watch for runners



Slim and comfortable to wear ; Packed with features ; Now has mapping ; Great battery life

Heart-rate iffy for high-intensity training ; Expensive ; Connect IQ Store still flaky

Garmin brings big features including music, payments and maps, all while still delivering big battery life and rich sports tracking to help make the the 945 one of its best sports watches yet.

Garmin Forerunner 945 review


The no-nonsense fitness buddy you're looking for

Impressive number of features ; Lightweight ; Super long battery life ; Offline music support

Same low-quality display ; Hard to get the hang of ; Pricey

A well-built, comfortable and feature-rich smartwatch, now with stand alone music playback and garmin Pay, all of which works a treat
