Advanced analyses of performance
What training workload do you need? The Forerunner 245 provides personalised data on your training and your level of recovery so that you can take the right decisions regarding your training sessions and properly prepare for your next race. It records your VO2max and measures the way in which heat and altitude affect your performance. The higher your VO2max, the better your performance should be.
Shake up your training sessions
Create your own personalised training sessions or download them for free and sync them straight to your watch. Thanks to the advice of professional coaches and the free training programmes, which adapt to your pace and your objectives, you will have no trouble in crossing the finish line. As part of your training programme, this function may even predict your race time.
Analyse your running technique
The connected Forerunner 245 GPS watch is compatible with the HRM-Run, HRM-Tri and Running Dynamics Pod (not provided with the watch) so you can track statistics during your important races such as pace, stride length, balance and ground-contact time, vertical oscillation and vertical ratio data.
These statistics help you to understand your technique so you can improve your performance.
Stay connected with every stride
Once your watch has connected to your compatible smartphone, you will be able to receive text messages, emails and social media messages as well as other notifications on your watch. The new tracking and safety functions, including the detection of incidents will make it easier to manually or automatically share your position with the contacts of your choice in the event that you need help. So you can put on your shoes and set off with peace of mind.
Sharing and competition
The syncing of your activities with Garmin Connect is not just for saving your data. Thanks to the Garmin Connect online community, users can connect to each other on the go and participate in challenges, encourage each other and even share their results on social networks. Garmin Connect is a free portal that is accessible via your web browser or smartphone.
Well-being and advanced monitoring of sleeping patterns
The Forerunner 245 has tools to help you monitor your level of well-being as well as your daily sleep patterns. These tools offer you crucial information to help you optimise your training sessions. For example, this is our first running watch equipped with pulse oxymetry. This wrist sensor estimates the level of saturation of oxygen in your blood so that you know how your body is absorbing oxygen, particularly when you are sleeping.
