Garmin Forerunner 745

Distributer Garmin


Combining sophisticated training tools and smart features, Garmin's latest Forerunner watch isn't just made for sports, but also for everyday life. To turn your movements into data and help you train smarter, it features built-in GPS and sensors that calculate your speed and distance traveled. But since this data is not the only factor to consider when evaluating your performance, the watch also takes into account external conditions, such as altitude and temperature, to provide you with precise information on your training. Plus, the Elevate Optical Heart Rate Monitor captures your heart rate right from your wrist. And when you pair the watch with a smartphone running the Garmin Connect app, it unlocks a whole new everyday utility by letting you track your activities, receive notifications, access your music, read weather reports, and more. If you prefer to leave your phone at home, no problem: the watch can store hundreds of songs and podcasts.
