When it's time to elevate your running game, track your daily activities, and enjoy your favorite music, grab the Forerunner 245 HR Music from Garmin and have all of your bases covered. It boasts some impressive features to keep your training activities on track and analyze every detail of your daily activity and recovery. The 245 HR Music will track your distance, pace, and exercise time and those metrics that are further supplemented with its Garmin Elevate wrist heart rate monitor and estimated VO2 Max. For daily activities, this watch tracks steps, distance, calories burned, and even stress to accurately assess your non-exercise time. As its music variant, it also provides the ability to sync with music streaming services, such as Spotify, to easily store and play your favorite songs right from your watch.
The fiber-reinforced polymer housing and Corning Gorilla Glass 3 crystal-clear lens conceal a GPS, Galileo, and GLONASS antenna, which is the basis for all the activity-tracking capabilities of the Forerunner 245. It can tell you how fast you're going, how far you've gone, whether you're on pace, how fast your heart's beating, how many calories you've burned, how much elevation you've gained, blood oxygen, and host of other metrics. It even provides custom, goal-oriented workouts that are downloadable with the Garmin Connect app. For indoor sessions, the 245's built-in accelerometer accurately captures distance and pace on the treadmill eliminating the need for bulky foot pods.
