The Garmin Forerunner 645 Music Lets You Listen to Music Untethered

by in News .

Fitness smartwatches have become a dime a dozen. They can now track your heart-rate, pace, calories burned, and much more. Get a GPS smartwatch, and it’ll even log your runs in real-time. However, there’s one single feature that can make or break a fitness smartwatch, and that’s the ability to run untethered from a smartphone.

“Untethered” means that a smartwatch doesn’t require a smartphone to operate its features. For example, GPS or music. Music is an important one, since most people only get into their zone when working out to their favourite tunes. A smartwatch that can store songs, and play them without requiring a smartphone, is a must-have for anybody who does exercises where a smartphone would get in the way.

Garmin Forerunner 645 Music

If that sounds like something you’d be interested in, the new Garmin Forerunner 645 Music, revealed at CES 2018, fits the bill.

The Garmin Forerunner 645 Music can store up to 500 songs and features Bluetooth connectivity for your Bluetooth headphones. Simply download your music to the Forerunner 645, connect your headphones, and you’re good to go.

In addition to its downloadable music, the Garmin Forerunner 645 Music is also compatible with Deezer and iHeartRadio. So, if you’d rather listen to a radio station, you can. Other features include in-built GPS and GLONASS for tracking your runs in real-time and a heart-rate sensor, so that you can keep on top of your cardiovascular performance. The Forerunner 645 Music will also track your distance, calories burned, and stairs climbed. It runs Garmin’s own operating system and supports Garmin Pay.

In terms of technical specs, the Forerunner 645 Music has a 1.2" LCD display with a 240 x 240 resolution, and offers up to 5 hours of battery life with Bluetooth and GPS turned on.


Pricing and Availability

The Garmin Forerunner 645 Music goes on sale in late February, and will be priced from $449.99, which is a great price for such a capable fitness smartwatch. It will be available from launch with a black or cerise coloured silicone band.
