  • Replaced my Series 3 Apple Watch
    Reviewed by Thelaurencraig - September 6, 2019

    I USED to own an Apple Watch, it was great except for the expense and constant screen breaking, glitches, and only touch screen option. THEN I switched to the Forerunner 45S—SUPER SIMPLE BUT FANTASTIC. Accurate on GPS, HR, Having actual buttons to get splits is awesome, pretty foolproof and easy to use. Activity Tracking is okay but may need a bit of work... seems like it’s overestimating calories burned amongst other things. Wish that it was totally waterproof, but water resistant is better than nothing! I would like more color combinations and options as well, but nonetheless a GREAT product at a SOLID price point! Keep cranking ‘em out Garmin!

  • New 45S features
    Reviewed by Porsche39 - August 21, 2019

    I bought my 45S about 2 months ago. Love the steps. Very versatile to use for multi-sports. Sleep works moderately well. Wonderful watch, but some of the watch faces can be glitchy and not work at times. My favorite is called "Elegance". The only other problem is that the second hand appears and disappears due to the glitch of the system. All of the second hands are like this on this model. Have not had a lot time to test each workout system due to busy schedule as a Hospice nurse. This my 4th Garmin watch. Each one gets better with more technology. Connection to Android phone is better too than the older models. I will continue to buy Garmin.

  • Best Purchase I've Made
    Reviewed by Borowskibabe3 - August 21, 2019

    I've been using the Forerunner 45 for about a month and honestly, I was nervous that I wouldn't love it or get over the novelty very quickly. Boy was I wrong! This watch is AMAZING!! I love the GPS tracking for my runs but I didn't expect all of the other data that you get, i.e. cadence, VO2 Max, Stride Length, etc. I feel so incredibly informed and more in charge of my training and recovery. It's sleek, works great, and has a great battery life. I've even had the chance to use its incident reporting abilities when I got scratched by a careless driver. I reccomend this to everyone - especially if you're on a budget! This gadget is so much bang for your buck
