Garmin announces Forerunner 645 Music running watch
Garmin announced the Forerunner 645 Music, a GPS running watch with integrated music that gives athletes the freedom to enjoy their favorite tunes on a run or during a workout without having to take a phone along. Additionally, when in need of a bottle of water or a quick bite to eat, Garmin Pay contactless payment solution1 lets users pay for purchases with their watch and keep on moving. The Forerunner 645 Music features up to 7 days of battery life in smartwatch mode and up to 5 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. It is available with a black or cerise band and has a suggested retail price of $449.99. An option without integrated music capabilities - the Forerunner 645 - is available with a black or sandstone band with a suggested retail price of $399.99.
