Pros and cons

According to our smartwatch expert
  • The watch displays heart rate zones while you're working out, so you can workout with a specific target in mind, for instance to improve your stamina.
  • With GPS and GLONASS, the watch determines your location, speed, and route more accurately than comparable watches.
  • Is compatible with the sports app Strava. This means you get extensive analyses and can share your performance with friends and followers.
  • The watch doesn't support music storage, so you have to take your phone with you each workout.
  • The watch case is relatively small with a diameter of 39.5mm.
  • Garmin isn't compatible with all Huawei smartphones.

Description

With the Garmin Forerunner 45S, you're always aware of your heart rate. The integrated heart rate sensor automatically measures your heart rate throughout the day. You'll also stay informed of your calories burned, steps taken, and your sleep. The watch case is 1.56 inches, so it's also suitable for a thinner wrist. The smartwatch automatically recognizes the moment you begin your training. Nobody around to join you in your exercise? With the virtual partner, your watch will always give you a worthy opponent. You can easily connect the smartwatch to your Android or Apple smartphone via Bluetooth. That way, you can see notifications of WhatsApp, Facebook, and Instagram coming in on your wrist.

Note: an adapter isn't included. Do you want to charge the watch via a socket? If so, order an adapter separately.

Limited fit for interval zone training

  • GPS is accurate
  • Interval workouts only available for running and cycling.

My requirements for my new sports watch are simple: to set up workouts at intervals, with a signal function so that I know whether the pace needs to be increased or decreased. When setting up the Garmin, I still run into limitations. First of all, interval workouts are only available for running and cycling. For other activities you have to set alarms, but that is only one zone for the whole activity. You do that in the watch and not - like the workouts - in the app, that takes some searching. It is not possible to turn off the sound during an activity (you can with the simplest sports watch from other brands). Some things are also unclear. When creating a workout, you can choose Custom, for example, but it will not appear in the watch (because: no running and cycling). The usefulness of creating this workout eludes me. It is also not possible to give an activity its own name, such as skating. So if I'm going to skate indoors I choose an elliptical trainer ;) If you are outside the heart rate zone during an activity, you will receive a signal. Your target heart rate will then be shown on the watch for 5 seconds, so not your current heart rate. Inconvenient, because you do not see how far you are from the border. Moreover: if the upper limit and lower limit are close to each other, you do not know whether you have to go harder or softer. It would be logical and simple if the tone or vibration for the upper and lower bounds were different. All in all, I do find opportunities to exercise with Garmin, but to be honest I expected more.

Highly recommended

  • Super sleek design
  • Battery lasts fine
  • Transfer via Bluetooth sometimes takes a long time

I first had the Garmin 235 whose battery was suddenly empty after 2 days. I was allowed to choose a new one. Finally became the 45S. Am totally happy.

Nice watch for a nice price with many running functions.

  • Easy in use
  • Nice design, not that big (so also suitable for smaller wrists)
  • Connecting to GPS takes quite a while. Hopefully there will be a good update from Garmin for that

Nice watch for a nice price with many running functions. You can set up all kinds of training programs via the Garmin app, but also, for example, via TrainingPeaks (via Garmin app). Watch charges quickly and battery lasts long enough. The watch has a beautiful design, so you can also wear it as a "normal" watch.

All basic functions are in it without bells and whistles

  • Price
  • Basic Features
  • Software 3.20 still contains some bugs

Bought a Garmin running watch as a backup and it does exactly what I minimally need: time, heart rate, distance, speed, laps. Also general activity and sleep tracking, but that is not a goal in itself. Works fine.

A good watch for sports and everyday use

  • Ease of use
  • Battery life

Works easily and is comfortable. In addition to sports performance, you can also track your daily movement/rest/sleep/heart rate.
