Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great WatcjI've owned Garmin running watches for years and years and this is my favorite. It's relatively small so doesn't overpower my wrist and it's light. I love the safety feature that if I have an emergency, like tripping and falling, it'll alert my contacts. I also bought the Dynamic Pod to go with it. While I'm not a super numbers geek, the information it provides is great. The watch is easy to use, a real plus when you're running. And I love the fact that it has my music right on it. All in all, it's a great watch and I'm very happy I bought it.

Buy it you will love it. Plus all your Strava segments, routes and miles sync!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can not get Spotify to work on this deviceI've spent over 6 hours trying to get spotify to work on this watch. Despite the watch showing that it is connected to my wifi network, when I try to link it to Spotify, it says it can't find a wifi connection. The solutions offered by Garmin (on their help pages as well as direct customer service) didn't help either.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow. That was easier than I thought!This is my first watch that isn’t a $30 timex. I love it. I’ve started running more miles and was tired of carrying a phone to listen to music. That was the primary reason for getting it and was easy to set up and load music on. I was expecting it to be a hassle but truly wasn’t. All my Spotify playlists were visible and I just picked the ones I wanted on the watch. I really like the heart rate monitor and make it a game in long runs to see how low I can keep it. I run 20+ miles per week and have really enjoyed it. I would get it again without hesitation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome upgrade!I’ve had my 220 for so long and while it still works great, I couldn’t resist upgrading to the 245 Music while it was on sale. I’m so glad I did! The upgrades are fantastic - so many more stats, plus Garmin coach! I’ve taken to wearing my watch all day just to watch it track all my stats. It’s very user friendly and customizable, plus the aqua band is so pretty. Definitely worth every penny!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best running watch to dateI love this watch. It is my favorite to date. Allows me to run without my phone for music and keeps me on pace for all my workouts. I am a runner and triathlete. I use it primarily for running and occasionally in the pool for laps. I have a separate bike computer for cycling. For open water swims I use my old 910 garmin. Someday I will get the 935 or 945 but for now I love this watch

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the watch, not sure about the connectivityI bought this earlier this week because I was tired of the GPS issues with a different watch. So far I really like the watch and the capabilities. I don't think it does sleep tracking as well as my previous watch and so far I haven't been able to sync with MyFitnessPal. On the plus side, the GPS connected right away and tracked my first workout the distance I expected.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the features and the comfy wrist band!My husband bought this for my bday as I have gotten into endurance running and needed more feedback than what my apple 4 watch was able to provide.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for escaping but wanting music/podcastsI bought this a couple months ago when I got tired of carrying my phone when I ran alone. I like to listen to music or podcasts when I'm running solo and carrying my phone became too much of a distraction. I felt myself constantly looking at Slack or work emails or responding to messages, so being able to wear this and listen has been wonderful. Originally I was only wearing this when I wanted to listen to something and my Fenix 5S all the other times. Now I only wear this watch as I have also found it's way lighter. I love it. Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't get my itunesI only listen to music from my iTunes downloads. I should have done more research.....I'll probably be selling this online soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits perfectly on my small wristI am a short hiker, and I always struggle to find things that are small enough for my wrist for fitness tracking. This watch is PERFECT for me. It's very lightweight, so I barely notice it when running, hiking, or sleeping. I love using this to track my hikes and it synchs right to Strava, which I love. The data it provides is incredible too. I love that it tracks my elevation and pace. It's the perfect watch!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great overall packageVery light, nice large screen, easy to see during the day and the light is nice and bright at night. Notifications are consistent and vibration feedback is strong. heart rate monitor runs consistently and watch faces provide cool real-time graphs or health stats. Bluetooth connectivity is patchy when I run, I assume it’s something to do with the GPS being on at the same time since any other time it’s fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for tracking runningI switched to the 245 from an Apple Watch so I could emphasize running. While I knew the 245 is much less of a smart watch it’s a bit jarring to make the switch. I’m satisfied with what I did and I’ll likely be even happier as time goes by.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use and read in sunlightI’ve only had this watch a couple weeks so haven’t used all the features. But the ones I have used were easy to set up. I created a long run interval workout and a pace run. I didn’t have to look at the watch because it beeped when I needed to change intervals. When I do look at the screen, I can easily see the data, even in the sun. About a week after I got the watch, my dog ate the band. I called Garmin to order a new one and they sent it to me for free. I really appreciated that. Thanks, Garmin. Can’t wait to use more of the features of my new watch!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Running Watch!I purchased this watch about a week ago, but I can already say that I’m so impressed with it and glad I made the purchase. Starting with the basics- it was super easy to figure out, which was actually a little bit surprising to me (I was expecting there to be a bigger learning curve with trying to navigate through all the settings). Loading music onto it was also very straight forward. And the battery life has been great- after 5 days (including 2 short runs), it was still going strong. Once I explored past just the basics and started checking out all of the great features that the Forerunner 245 Music has, I was hooked. I purchased this watch to help train for my first marathon this year, and I’m SO glad I did. I wake up and am excited to train with it on. Garmin did a fantastic job with this watch!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Distance measuring isn't accurateI've used the Garmin 245 for around 5 runs so far. The first 3 overestimated the distance by around 20%. The next one was about right. The last one underestimated by about 10%. For example I did exactly the same run twice in 10 days. The first run measured the distance at 12km and today it measured it as 9.09km!! Exactly the same run!! The settings are the same GPS is turned on too

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight fits a woman’s wristI have small wrists and it’s hard to find fully featured watches that not only function well but look great. This strikes the perfect balance. The HR monitor was wildly inaccurate the first week but after continued use and tightening the strap more, accuracy increases significantly. I like the colors too (I bought white) I almost bought the 935 but didn’t need all the features and didn’t want to spend that much money for a plain black watch. Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features and accuracyThis watch does a great job of accurately capturing GPS data and run analysis featuring time, pace, mile splits, heart rate; all while playing my favorite playlists and podcasts that I saved on Spotify.

Just started using Garmin Coach to train to run a full 5K, and I think the program will prove to be invaluable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life on a WristI've only had my Forerunner 245 music for a few days, but I'm already thrilled with the decision to upgrade from the Fitbit HR I've had for a couple of years. Performance is great. Weight is comparable despite the additional size and features. The reporting is MUCH more broad and advanced. Best of all, this with my new bluetooth earpieces mean I'm not fighting with cords and having to carry an MP3 player while I run. I'm still learning the features, but that will come.

I had no idea a watch could provide so many stats after a run. I also love the safety feature— it just makes me feel more confident. My pace appears to be a whopping 40 seconds faster than my prior running watch. I’m sticking with Garmin moving forward.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressive so farJust bought it and very pleased with comfort, look, and ease of use so far. Switching fro. IONIC and it is like night and day- and I liked my ionic.Again, super comfortable, stats heavy app to go with it and does so much more than I had been used to. Looking forward to seeing it work into my fitness goals over time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well worth the extra money for the Music featureI am very very happy with my Garmin watch. I debated about spending the extra 50 dollars to get the music feature and I am SO glad I did. I use that feature all the time now, when I garden, walk, and do housework or at work. I wear a lot of workout clothing that has no pockets for my phone, having the watch lets me have my music with me and able to listen to it everywhere. Regardless of having a pocket or place to carry my phone. I really like all the features so far!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First Time userI have been a fitbit user for years which was great for daily activities. However, my running ability and activity level has gone beyond fitbit. Now that I have switched to Forerunner 245 I am in love with this Garmin. I wish I switched years ago. I am excited this Garmin is going to ready for my 1st marathon in 2021.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent everything.I bought my 245 music 3 months ago and love it. It’s amazing at all the data that you can process. Battery life is good. I would love to see Garmin in the future think about going solar. Battery life would be top notch then.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome deviceI just got my Garmin 245 Music and I am loving it! I have not used the music function yet because I am waiting on purchasing wireless headphones. This is not super important to me anyway, I usually run without music or podcasts. I do find the watch to be highly beneficial to my running. This is my first running/fitness watch and it meets all my needs! It is a great size, easy to read and comfortable enough for me to wear 24/7 to track sleep etc. I did my first long run with it and it really made the tracking of miles and pace so much simpler than the steps it takes for me to access and use my phone for the same function! A lot of the other data is so helpful and it integrates seamlessly with my phone. I am looking forward to using it to listen to music and podcasts! Powerful tech!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great watch!Very happy with my purchase, upgraded from old Garmin 910 XT. Really enjoy the music feature, no need to carry my cell when running or working out at the gym! I do wish it had open water swim feature.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Running made EasierI made a switch from the Fenix 3 to the FR 245 with music and the positives are, no need to carry a phone for the purpose of listening to music, it's so much lighter and fits my little wrist better and bye bye chest strap. The watch is set up a little different as far as getting to my training workouts but it's pretty easy to get used to. Syncing with Spotify is so easy and the display is perfect. I am loving this watch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best option for phone free music via Spotify.Looking to get into running/ Cardio exercise. Key feature for me was the ability to play my spotify playlist in an offline mode (phone free) the Forerunner 245 Music was the most cost effective option that allowed me to do this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice watchI bought this watch the day after Thanksgiving and have really enjoyed it so far. The amount of data provided thru the running dynamics has been really cool. I wish uploading the music was easier but I need to go thru a tutorial perhaps.I really like the connectIQ app and the different screen faces that could be applied to the watch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so goodI just got my Garmin device few days ago so I'm still new to it but so far I really like it. I'm going to be excited to load my music onto it. I swapped from a Fitbit to a Garmin at a friend's insistence. LOL. We're both very happy that I did it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great running watchI love all the features in this. GPS is extremely accurate, Garmin Coach is a great service, music syncing is great. It is, understandably, slower than my Apple Watch was when syncing, etc. but that's fine. The Heart Rate portion of it can deviate (as they normally do on wrists, + my tattoos there [my Apple Watch would consistently disconnect every 2-3 minutes]), but that's to be expected. Battery life is great, consistently at about 4 days of usage all day with GPS running ~1.5 hours a day. Love, love, love it.
