  • Garmin Forerunner 745 GPS Watch

    The ultimate running and triathlon watch, the Garmin Forerunner 745 GPS Watch provides detailed training stats and on-device workouts plus a huge variety of smartwatch functions.

    Daily Workout Suggestions

    The Forerunner 745 delivers training guidance that takes your fitness level into account. The watch provides run and ride recommendations based on your current training load and training status.

    Training Effect

    See how your workouts influence the developments of endurance, speed and power with aerobic and anaerobic training effect feedback.

    Recovery Time

    See when it’s time to train and when you still need more time to recover with the Recovery Time feature. It considers training intensity and factors in such elements as stress, daily activity and sleep.

    Built-In Sports Apps

    The smartwatch comes with built-in activity profiles for running, cycling, triathlon, pool and open water swimming, track running and more. You can switch sports with just one button press.

    VO2 Max

    The VO2 Max feature helps you train smarter, working as an indicator of how you can expect to perform. This metric also accounts for changes in performance that could be caused by heat or altitude.

    Race Predictor

    The specialised Race Predictor tool uses your current fitness level and training history to help you work toward your race goal and allows you to see the impact of training on your predicted finishing time.

    Performance Condition

    While you’re running, the Forerunner 745 analyses your pace, heart rate and heart rate variability for a real-time assessment of your current ability to perform.

    Training Load

    The Training Load stat measures your exercise volume from the last 7 days and compares it to the optimal range for your fitness and recent training history.

    Training Status

    The Training Status metric evaluates your recent exercise history and performance indicators to let you know if your training is productive, peaking or overreaching.

    Cycling Power

    Connect to a compatible Garmin power meter (sold separately) to work toward a more efficient ride with help from cycling dynamics, FTP and advanced training methods.

    Wrist-Based Heart Rate

    Integrated into the wrist of the smartwatch is a heart rate monitor which delivers hassle-free heart rate data, including advanced heart rate alerts and other features – helping you to get the most out of your workouts.

    Running Dynamics

    When used with a compatible accessory (sold separately), the Forerunner 745 can be used to measure crucial running metrics such as cadence, stride, length, ground contact time, balance, and more.


    The watch uses multiple global navigation satellite systems including GPS, GLONASS, and Galileo to better keep track in more challenging environments.

    Garmin Coach

    The watch comes with free, adaptive training plans which feature guidance from expert coaches and adapt to you and your goals. Workouts sync right to your watch.

    Create More Courses

    You can create courses in the Garmin Connect app or plan one on other platforms such as Strava or Komoot, then automatically sync them to the Forerunner 745.

    Trendline™ Popularity Routing

    Using the billions of miles of data that runners and riders have uploaded, Garmin Connect can find the best route – choosing from the roads and trails most travelled.
