As Britain is currently under various stages of lockdown, there’s not much you can do other than go outside for a walk or run. So now is a good time to get into fitness tracking. And the Garmin Forerunner 245 — one of the best sports watches around — will help you do just that.
It comes with a suite of features that offer both fitness and general information. Cycling through the Forerunner 245's various screens, you can view the weather, your calendar, notifications, workout history, heart rate, steps, health stats and more. And each of these screens is referred to as a widget, and you can add, remove and rearrange them as you see fit to customise the smartwatch’s screens to your taste.
Outside of these regular smartwatch features, you’ll get access to free training plans through the Garmin Coach. And you can create your own custom workouts by accessing the Garmin Connect online fitness community.
Furthermore, the Garmin Forerunner 245 provides information about your running dynamics, including ground contact time balance, stride length, vertical ratio and more. Basically if you need a device to track your running this is one to consider.
