With Forerunner 945, you're free to go wherever your activities take you - thanks to GPS, GLONASS and Galileo coverage, which can track better in more challenging environments than GPS alone. Whether you're on or off road, the network capabilities help you track how far, fast and hard you've run. Safety and tracking features also make it exceptionally easy to share your location with your chosen contact should you get into any difficulty. The Forerunner will send your real-time location to emergency contacts so you can be found easily should an emergency arise.
The Forerunner 945 feature onboard maps so you'll never get lost during any workout. The full coloured maps are easily accessible through the watch so you always know where you are and where you are heading.

Additionally, the 945 also features Trendline popularity routing which will help you find and follow the best and most popular trail and routes used by Garmin connect users around the world.
Garmin are making it easier to get the data you need to improve your form. Let Forerunner 945 measure crucial running metrics that you can use to analyse your performance. Biomechanical measurements, such as cadence, stride length, ground contact time and balance, vertical oscillation and vertical ratio are the key to understanding your form so you can bring your best on race day. These metrics are available with the addition of a compatible heart rate strap or the compact Running Dynamics Pod, which clips right onto your waistband. Also, take advantage of feature sets to help with cycling and even swim training. In the pool, Forerunner 945 will track your distance, pace, stroke count and more.
Just how effective is your current training plan? Forerunner 945 will help you monitor your training and recovery so you can better prepare for a race or training cycle. Training status is a new performance monitoring tool that automatically evaluates your recent exercise history and performance indicators to let you know if you're training productively, peaking or overreaching. The anaerobic training effect metric opens a window of insight to a critical dimension of training, telling you how your training is improving your ability to push the limits. You can even view your overall training load, which measures your exercise volume from the last 7 days and compares it to the optimal range for your fitness and recent training history.
On your wrist, Elevate wrist heart rate technology lets you monitor your heart rate without wearing a chest strap. In addition to counting steps and monitoring sleep, the watch uses heart rate to provide calories burned information and quantify the intensity of your fitness activities. It also measures your heart rate variability to calculate a stress score that helps you assess what level of activity your body is ready for.
With up to 500 songs worth of music storage built right into your watch, Garmin are putting the "beat" in your daily mission to beat yesterday. It's easy to transfer music from your computer and then queue up your favourite playlist for easy listening through Bluetooth headphones.
