    Awesome

    • The watch is a lot smaller than the 235 and therefore more unisex
    • The design is elegant for a sports watch
    • The Garmin Coach feature is a big plus
    • Accurate navigation
    • Senses stress and breathing
    • I wish I had bought it sooner

    Careful and sturdy watch. It has extensive functions that are pleasant for longer distances. The smaller and more elegant design completes my running experiences.

    • Good heart rate measurement and associated info
    • light
    • Great battery
    • Lots of choice in dials
    • Color screen clearly visible in the sun
    • Oxygen measurement and sleep measurement less reliable
    • More expensive models charge in the sun

    The Forerunner 245 is my first sports/smartwatch. It is much lighter than I thought and I am impressed by the options and the accompanying data (smartphone) app. Heart rate and GPS work perfectly. Battery fine and charges quickly. I compared the specs of many watches beforehand and this one was in the sweet spot for me: serious heart rate measurement (highly regarded and otherwise possible) with various sports/rest recommendations, waterproof and music controls. I don't need a barometer. The oxygen measurement would be less and it is a pity that the sleep measurement does not seem reliable. Still very impressive and fine watch if your focus is on sports. Worth the money for me.

    Excellent sports watch with long battery life

    • light
    • Long battery life
    • Easy to read screen
    • Heart rate monitor and oxygen meter
    • Menu structure unclear

    The forerunner is an excellent support when running. During exercise you will see the most relevant information on the display, via the app you can see much more about how your workout was. The smart watch functions are also excellent.
    The downside is the menu structure: it is not very intuitive and it takes a while before you learn it urgently.
