Garmin Forerunner 45 GPS Watch
The Garmin Forerunner 45 GPS Watch offers a host of features that will quickly become invaluable to beginners and seasoned runners alike. With GPS, GLONASS and Galileo sensors the accuracy is excellent and the unit is quick to pick up the satellites. When running, heart rate is measured on the wrist by the watch itself, negating the need for extra chest straps and monitors, whilst the clear screen makes reading the data easy. Garmin has even ensured that the buttons are simple to operate with sweaty hands!
Included with the Forerunner 45 is access to Garmin Coach, which provides free training plans tailored to individual abilities and goals, with the phone app-based workouts syncing directly to the watch. Smartphone connectivity also provides notifications of incoming texts or calls and can share locations with chosen contacts in the event of an incident, either manually or automatically. Even music on the phone can be controlled through simple watch based controls, and all activities can be automatically uploaded to Garmin Connect without the need for a computer.
If worn daily the Forerunner 45 works as a fitness tracker, monitoring steps, calories, distance and sleep as well as stress.
