Show Description

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.

  • Modes for biking, running, swimming (indoor and outdoor), multisport – transition between activities within a single workout, gym focused activities (strength training – with rep counter, cardio and elliptical training, stair stepping, indoor rowing and yoga) and more.
  • Included HRM-Tri™ strap stores swim data when in the water, and uploads to your 945 when finished. Garmin's smallest and lightest strap ever produced.
  • Included HR-Swim™ strap is Garmin's first dedicated swim strap. Non-slip design stays in place even during wall push-offs and is resistant to pool chemicals.
  • Optical heart rate sensors are not able to reliably record heart rate while under water. For heart rate data during your swims, you will need either the HRM Swim or HRM TRI.
  • Included quick release kit lets you go from handlebar to wrist and back again with a quick quarter turn.
  • Includes North American map data with room to add more maps.
  • Point of interest navigation lets you search for places you may want to go, e.g restaurants, attractions, accommodation, etc.

  • Strava Segment integration – both preloaded and on-the-fly (through your phone) – lets you know when your starred segment is about to begin and shows instantaneous data, how it compares to your PR and the current KOM or QOM, and then provides results once the segment is complete (requires Strava premium).
  • Connects to 3 different satellite constellations (GPS, GLONASS and Galileo) and caches satellite positions, giving you a fast connection and a strong GPS signal anywhere.
  • Internet Live Tracking during activities (through a connected smartphone) allows you to share your location and fitness data.
  • GroupTrack™ displays the location and telemetry of up to 50 others.
