Forerunner 645 with memory for 500 songs

Garmin Contactless Payment

Other key new features added to the Forerunner 645 are Garmin’s contactless Payment System. Garmin Pay Ready contactless payment method lets you make convenient payments with your watch, so you can leave your cash and cards at home

Clean, stylish lines

We loved the Garmin Forerunner 235 – one of the best GPS running watches of the last 5 years. But there’s no getting away from the fact that it was a bit “plastic” looking. The new Garmin Forerunner 645 has similar lines to the Vivoactive 3.

Garmin Training Status

I have been using the Garmin Fenix 5 for the last 4 weeks and Training Status is the BEST serious fitness innovation since built-in heart rate monitoring. No more guessing if you’re under trained or over trained. The Garmin Forerunner 645 will tell you precisely what your personal training status is.
