Awesome Watch!
This is the first “smart” watch I have owned and it has exceeded all of my expectations. I am very happy with my purchase!

I’ve had an Apple Watch for the longest, however I wanted a watch that could handle gps and music as my Apple Watch died during a half marathon while I played music and that won’t work for me. So happy with my Garmin purchase, I had bought another before and loved it and gifted it to my boyfriend. Definitely team Garmin!

Love so far!
I upgraded from the 230 to the 245 Music recently and love it so far. It's easy to use, light weight and reliable.

Too complicated
I bought this a little while ago. Don’t like it that much. Don’t recommend it at all.

Easy to get dirty, and the blood oxygen level measuring takes a long time. Other than that, the watch is pretty useful, a lot of features.

I am astonished with the poor bright of the screen. I cannot understand this big limitation in this device. I am going to return it right away.

Lots of bang for your buck
I've only had this a week but I am very happy with my purchase. I bought this watch because I felt like I needed more than the Apple smart watch could give me. I'm still learning, but definitely love the convenience of having music on my run and not having to take my phone. I also love all of the health information that it tracks and I can use to improve my workouts, pace and effectiveness of my training. I am currently using the 10K coaching feature , another great asset. Would definitely recommend. If you are thinking about the Forerunner 245 I say go for it.
