Shop with confidence. If it’s not working out, you can return it (consumables, electronics, undergarments and swimwear excluded).
Really. If it's not up to snuff after you use it (a couple times) you can still bring it back. It lasts longer than 30 days, but not forever. We'll be fair about it.


To keep up with committed tri-athletes, this bundle includes Garmin's powerful HRM-Tri and HRM-Swim straps to provide nuanced swimming and running data, with a Quick Release kit to help speed up transitions. In a Forerunner first, the 945 looks at more than how you train but also where you train. Environmental details like elevation and temperature are now factored into your performance data. Climate acclimation has a real effect on your race day performance, the 945 helps give you an idea of what you can expect with its race predictor. Speed, distance, pace and more come in via a new, more efficient GPS, along with other internal sensors. The latest generation Elevate heart rate monitor lets the 945 read your pulse straight off your wrist. When you need more information, or even a little motivation, you can download training plans through the free Garmin Connect app. When paired with a smartphone running Garmin Connect your 945 goes from a training tool, to an everyday tool. Garmin Connect lets you review activities, receive texts, social media alerts, emails, etc., keep an eye on the weather and more. The 945 can even give your training a soundtrack, with the ability to connect to multiple music services and storage for up to 1000 songs. With tunes and podcasts on your wrist, you can cut weight and leave your phone at home. Pre-loaded with detailed maps, the 945 can help you get where you need to go. And, for those times you know how far you want to go, but don't have a course in mind, the 945 can help. Enter your desired distance and the 945 will use its maps and track data from other Garmin users to calculate multiple course options that start and stop right were you are.
