  • Perfect for everything I need
    Reviewed by David W - August 13, 2019

    I bought the FR945 while already owning the Fenix 5s+ and Fenix 5X. I did that because the 5S+ was too small and 5X always felt heavy on my relatively thin wrists and flopped around. The FR945 is perfect- larger display, more features, and lighter. And just as tough- not a scratch after 4 months. I have religiously updated the firmware as updates have come out but honestly have never had any problems with any of the features that I normally use- mainly the health and fitness features. I don't use Garmin Pay or Music so I can't comment on those features. Everything else has worked fine for me. This is the best watch I have ever owned.

  • Great Watch!
    Reviewed by Ocrdenise - August 12, 2019

    I have had this forerunner for 8 weeks. It’s great- the best feature for me is that it link with my trainers Training peaks app. It uploads my runs then makes sure I am within the correct heart rate zones. I love the female cycle tracking. I wish it were touch screen as it gets tough to figure out which buttons to push. I also think garmin has some work to do on sleep tracking. I had a Fitbit and whoop combination before and they were pretty much in sync, but garmin says I’m getting a lovely 8 hours a sleep when whoop has me at 6.7-7. Overall I think this is a great watch- I still haven’t touched on all the features but I’m happy which my purchase.

  • For the Serious Athlete
    Reviewed by Dpatel - May 16, 2020

    I just got my first Garmin watch ever. I've been wanting one for quite a while but was intimidated by the price and also the variety of watches. I suffered through an Apple watch for 3 years and finally got fed up with it and went all in with a 945. I feel like a new man. No more touch screens that don't recognize your touch. Very simple to use and uploads quickly to all applications on my iPhone. Battery life is amazing...I just to run out of juice on my iwatch mid way through a half iron-man. Those days are over. I'm still learning more but so far, I have run, biked and swam in open water with this watch and just been happy with it.
