Running isn’t just about working out, it’s performing and competing. Our partner Garmin has launched the new Garmin Forerunner 645 Music sports watch to enable you to listen to music, pay contactlessly, view several running performance values, use GPS navigation and much more during sports and your everyday life. We now have this great all-rounder in our selection and will be outlining its special features in this post. Music: As the name suggests, you can upload your favourite tunes onto the Garmin Forerunner 645 Music and enjoy your favourite music on the go without having to bring along extra gadgets. The watch will store a maximum of 500 songs and can connect to wireless headphones via Bluetooth, so you can just leave your phone at home when you go for a run. Having your favourite playlist with you is bound to help you break a personal record. Contactless payments This function means that not only can you leave your phone at home but also your wallet and still go out shopping - i.e. if you’re thirsty and need to grab something to drink, you just need to have Garmin Pay™ ready synchronised with your credit card for quick, easy and contactless payments. There’s nothing more annoying than filling all your pockets when you go for a run, but with the Garmin Forerunner 645 Music, you no longer have to! Performance values The main reason for having a sports watch in the first place is to keep an eye on and review your performance values when you run, work out, cycle, etc. This can help you improve your fitness and estimate how effective your training plan is. Biometric values like step frequency, step length, contact time with the ground and vertical movement are essential for measuring your fitness levels. The Garmin Forerunner 645 Music can also tell you if your training is improving your fitness or possibly overwhelming your body. With this smartwatch, you can also keep tabs on your recovery. Keep all of your data in one place and make the most of your training. Individuality All the different apps that you can install on this watch mean that the Garmin Forerun 645 Music can be customised to suit your needs. As well as this, the watch wasn’t just designed for runners - the integrated sports profiles make this accessory ideally suited to cycling (indoor and outdoor), swimming (at the pool), cross-training, paddle sports, strength training and many other kinds of activities. We’re really impressed with the new Garmin Forerun 645 Music and strongly recommend it to you all. Apart from providing all kinds of great functions, the watch is also chic and discreet, and the Garmin Chroma Display™ is easy to read even in full sunlight. Check out the Garmin watch here.
