This one features a 1.04-inch (208 x 208 pixels) display and comes with 5ATM water resistance rating. The watch comes with built-in GPS, supports 24×7 heart rate monitoring, activity (calories burnt, steps, and sleep) tracking, and more. It is claimed to last up to 2 weeks on a single charge, while enabling GPS brings the battery longevity down to just 20 hours.

The latest high-end offering from Garmin adds LTE into the mix, allowing for phone-free real-time location tracking, the ability to send an SOS message in case of an emergency, and live event sharing to the smartwatch. However, you’ll have to run a subscription plan in order to make use of the aforementioned LTE-powered tracking features on the Forerunner 945 LTE. “Store up to 1,000 songs right on the watch and sync playlists through Wi-Fi from select music streaming services like Amazon Music, Deezer, and Spotify,” the company says.

You also get some advanced capabilities such as grade-adjusted running guidance, granular training data log for slow and fast pace, turn-by-turn directions, and more. Moreover, it also offers perks such as support for contactless payments and a free online fitness community as well.




I’ve been writing about consumer technology for over three years now, having worked with names such as NDTV and Beebom in the past. Aside from covering the latest news, I’ve reviewed my fair share of devices ranging from smartphones and laptops to smart home devices. I also have interviewed tech execs and appeared as a host in YouTube videos talking about the latest and greatest gadgets out there.
