The Garmin Forerunner 945 LTE GPS Watch offers a feature-rich training tool for the devoted endurance runner and triathlete alike and now adds LTE connectivity (subscription required) for even more benefits. Although you can't send and receive traditional text messages without your phone nearby, the LTE functions as a standalone for LiveTracking, Spectator Text and Voice Messaging, and access to emergency response services. The LiveTracking lets you leave your phone at home while you head out for a race or run, letting friends or family track your location and basic stats. Spectator Text and Voice Messaging allow those friends or family to send you encouraging words in real-time to keep you motivated. Lastly, the emergency response service offers international assistance that can be triggered automatically by an accident or manually with the push of a button.
Just like the non-LTE version, the Forerunner 945 LTE includes music storage for up to 1,000 songs from your favorite Spotify® playlist, Amazon Music, or music library. Other major benefits include an extensive 35-hour battery life, Pulse Ox and VO2 Max for monitoring your acclimation to high altitude and heat, pre-loaded high resolution onboard maps, and beneficial wellness features like menstrual tracking and Body Battery™ that provide personal training advice based on your cycle and daily energy levels.
This watch uses three different types of satellites for highly accurate location tracking in almost any setting, as well as an accelerometer and gyroscope for indoor training. The ability to track a wide variety of sports and seamlessly switch between running, swimming, and cycling make it essential for runners in cross-training. Overall, this watch will prove irreplaceable to the full-time, data-hungry runner looking to optimize their daily life, training, and safety.
