This easy-to-use running watch is perfect for daily runs, training
sessions and even that upcoming 10K you got talked into. Built-in GPS
tracks where you run and gives you accurate stats, including distance,
pace and intervals. Its intuitive button interface makes it easy for
sweaty hands to mark a lap or pause the timer. Forerunner 45S also
monitors heart rate at the wrist, day and night1.
Gear Up with Garmin Coach
Whether you’re a seasoned runner or just getting off the sofa, everyone
can use a little bit of guidance. That’s why Forerunner 45S is

to you and your goals. It’s a foolproof way to get to the finish line.
As part of your training plan, it can even help you predict your race
time, and the workouts sync right to your watch.
Stay Connected on the Run

chosen contacts in case you need assistance — manually, or
automatically with built-in incident detection2. A variety of connected
features keeps you in touch with the rest of the world during and in
between runs. Get smart notifications delivered to your wrist for
incoming text messages and phone calls. When paired with your
compatible smartphone, Forerunner 45S will automatically upload your
run data to the Garmin Connect online fitness community. It even has
handy controls for the music playing on your phone, so you can skip
songs without missing a beat.
