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.


Stay connected without your phone. With built-in LTE communication, the Forerunner 945 LTE lets you share data, communicate or even call for help without a phone. It also has all the training features of prior Forerunner smartwatches. Internal GPS handles speed, distance and pace. Sensors factor in elevation and temperature. Detailed internal maps get you where you need to go and plot routes. Elevate™ optical heart rate monitor takes pulse data off your wrist, no need for a chest strap. Need more information or extra motivation? Pair it with Garmin Connect and download training plans, review activities, receive texts, social media alerts, emails, track the weather and more. Plus you can store playlists, podcasts, up to 1000 songs and connect to music services.
