Advanced performance analytics
The Forerunner 245 offers personalised training and recovery insight for smarter training decisions, helping you prepare for your next race. It keeps tab on your VO2 max and understands how heat and altitude impact your performance. Training status evaluates your recent exercise history and performance indicators to let you know if you’re training productively, peaking or overreaching. Recovery time helps you maximise the benefit of your efforts by predicting when you will be ready for your next tough challenge. 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.
Analyse your running form
The Forerunner 245 GPS smartwatch also has the tools you need to improve your running form. The watch measures crucial running metrics such as cadence, stride length, ground contact time and balance, vertical oscillation and vertical ratio. These measurements are the key to understanding your form, so you can bring your best on every run and at every race. Your Forerunner 245 can start tracking these metrics with the addition of a compatible heart rate strap or the compact Running Dynamics Pod, which clips right onto your waistband.
Stay connected on the run
The Forerunner 245 makes it easy to run without leaving important smart features behind. Once paired with your compatible smartphone, you’ll be able to receive text messages and see social media updates, emails and more right on your wrist. And new safety and tracking features make it easy to share your location with chosen contacts in case you need assistance – manually or automatically with built-in incident detection*, if needed. So, lace up your shoes and head out with a little extra peace of mind.
Wellness and advanced sleep monitoring
The Forerunner 245 smartwatch has tools to help keep tabs on your overall well-being and the sleep you’re getting at night. This wrist-based sensor estimates your body’s blood oxygen saturation, which can help gauge how your body is absorbing oxygen – especially while you sleep. And to help you optimise your body’s energy, Body Battery energy monitoring uses collected data to gauge your energy reserves at any moment, so you can plan your day to optimise times for activity and rest.
* Incident detection requires smartphone to function.
