Leave your phone at home – stay connected even when away from your phone

The Forerunner 645 Music has a sporty style, with a metal bezel, chemically strengthened glass and interchangeable bands.

It can store up to 500 songs on the device itself – download offline playlists from select music streaming services, or transfer music from a computer directly to the watch.

Once the playlist is loaded, pair the Forerunner 645 Music with a set of compatible Bluetooth® headphones (sold separately).

Garmin Pay is a contactless payment solution that uses your Garmin Pay wallet to enjoy the same rewards and benefits of physical cards.

Level up your training with in-depth running data and measurement

Athletes can better prepare for a race or training cycle with the help of training features provided by Firstbeat.

Training status automatically evaluates previous exercise and fitness levels to let athletes know if they are training productively, peaking or overreaching.

“Listening to music helps most of us keep our momentum going during those long or particularly difficult runs. Now, with the addition of integrated music and Garmin Pay, the Forerunner 645 Music will help give athletes the independence they’ve been looking for while still providing them with the quality and accuracy of our other running products that they have come to rely on,” said Mr. Engelhard (Al) Sundoro, Managing Director, Garmin South Asia.

Measuring exercise volume from the last seven days, training load helps users determine if they are training in the right zone and whether their sessions are too easy or hard.

Additionally, the anaerobic training effect metric will tell athletes how their hard work and training is improving their ability to push the limits.

The Forerunner 645 Music allows athletes to go even further with their running data.

Clipping the Running Dynamics Pod to the waistband allows users to see all six running dynamics, including cadence, ground contact time, stride length and more on their watch without the need for a chest strap.

Built-in GPS and GLONASS let athletes track how far, how fast and where they run – no phone connection required.

Go for a ride, swim, walk and more to take advantage of even more features available on the Forerunner 645 Music.

Furthermore, users can view and follow downloaded courses on their wrist, race a previous activity and train with simple intervals or follow complex workouts.

In the pool, the Forerunner 645 Music will track distance, pace, stroke, personal records and more.

Share and compete with fellow fitness enthusiasts

With an array of connected features, the Forerunner 645 Music lets users stay in touch with the rest of the world, even while on the move.

When paired with a compatible smartphone, it automatically uploads to Garmin Connect™, an online fitness community where users can track workouts, sleep patterns, join online challenges to compete against friends and earn virtual badges.

Directly from the wrist, users will be able to receive and respond to text messages, invite friends to follow their runs in real time with LiveTrack, and view social media updates, emails and more.

Easily customisable through the Connect IQ store, Forerunner 645 Music users can download free data fields, watch faces, widgets and apps including UBER ETA, SmartThings, AccuWeather MinuteCast and more.

Designed for runners

The Forerunner 645 Music features up to seven days of battery life in smartwatch mode and up to five hours in GPS mode with music.

Weighing roughly 42 grams, this is the first Forerunner to feature a stainless-steel metal bezel and always-on Garmin Chroma Display™ that is easy to read — even in direct sunlight — and is housed under chemically strengthened glass.

When you want to change it up, swapping bands is fast and does not require the use of any tools.

It also features a reliable five-button interface that allows users to mark laps with a quick press.
