The Forerunner 645 Music will make you run to the beat
If you're a runner chances are you've heard of Garmin, they've been making running watches for a very long time.
And now The Forerunner has gotten a face lift.
This is a Forerunner 645 and it has a few new features worth noting.
First off and most notably is a design.
I myself is a runner.
Runner, but I'd shied away from other Garmin running watches because of the bulky design.
Now, this one is much slimmer, and it closely resembles more of the smart watches, the trendier smart watches that were seen out in the market, and it's incredibly light.
The other great feature is it now holds 500 songs, and you can make different playlists from your Music streaming services.
Right now they've partnered with iHeartRadio, but it will soon be getting more.
And Number three, it now has the Garmin payment system.
Which uses NFC.
So you can pay at a NFC terminal.
Aside from that it has all the great Garmin features that have been especially designed with runners in mind.
And as with any smart watch it also pairs with your phone and does notifications.
You can see incoming calls, And texts.
The Forerunner has about a five hour battery life if you're running and using the GPS, or it will last about seven days on one charge if you're just using it for general purposes.
Another cool thing about the Forerunner that differentiates it from competitors like an Apple watch, for example, is that it has it always on display, but it's constantly showing Giving you the time or any other information you want on screen.
And that it has physical buttons.
But all that extra music is gonna cost you and the Garmin forerunner 465 music costs $450 and it will be available later in January.
