The Garmin Forerunner 645 Music is another strong addition to the growing stable of Garmin wearables. Like a halfway house between the more smarwatch-like Vivoactive 3 and serious sports watches like the Forerunner 935, it tries to offer a happy medium. It’s a trade-off in mammoth battery life and some sports modes, for a sleeker design and of course music player support. That music player support right now though is not complete. What os available now though does work well, and if you really do prefer going running or working without your phone, and value Garmin’s comprehensive tracking and training insights, then it will have appeal. There are smartwatches out there can offer a more complete music player experience for less money, but lack what Garmin offers as far as giving you those rich metrics. So if your fitness data means as much to you as the music, then the 645 Music could well be the one for you.
The Forerunner 645 Music is, as the name suggests, all about Garmin bringing the music. For the first time you can store your own music as well as playlists from select streaming services straight to a Garmin watch. Then you just need to pair some Bluetooth headphones and you have another reason to leave that smartphone behind.
