RUNNING DYNAMICS

When used with a compatible accessory, Forerunner 945 measures crucial running metrics such as cadence, stride length, ground contact time and balance and more.

VO2 MAX

Train smarter with VO2 max, an indicator of how you can expect to perform. This metric even accounts for changes in performance that could be caused by heat or altitude.

PERFORMANCE CONDITION

While you run, analyze pace, heart rate and heart rate variability for a real-time assessment of your current ability to perform.

TRAINING STATUS

This metric evaluates your recent exercise history and performance indicators to let you know if you’re training productively, peaking or overreaching.

TRAINING EFFECT

See how your workouts influence the development of endurance, speed and power with aerobic and anaerobic training effect feedback.

TRAINING LOAD

This stat measures your exercise volume from the last 7 days and compares it to the optimal range for your fitness and recent training history.

DAILY WORKOUT SUGGESTIONS

For training guidance that takes you and your fitness level into account, get daily run and ride recommendations based on your current training load and training status.

RECOVERY TIME

After each workout, the built-in recovery time advisor lets you know how long to rest before another big effort. It even accounts for all-day stress, sleep and daily activity outside of workouts.

EXTENDED BATTERY LIFE

Get up to 2 weeks of battery life in smartwatch mode and 10 hours in GPS mode with music. Use UltraTrac™ mode to make sure you’ve got enough juice to outlast your longest race.

Maps on your wrist.
