Forerunner 245 (FR245)

There are a significant numer of you GPSrumors followers intersted in the Forerunner 245 (FR245). This is weird because the Forerunner 235 was born in October 2015. This means the FR245 will be at least October 2017 and realistically 2018 since it took a lot of thunder from FR225 early. There are very few hardware or software reasons Garmin would touch this early, let alone on time. You can be fairly confident that the Forerunner 235 will live and be current until 2018 so if that’s your thing, buy this watch with confidence.

Garmin, if you’re reading this and know different, give me a shout out. Your loyal customers are at stake!

    Oh man, when I saw the title of this post, I thought the 245 would be coming sooner than that.
    If it doesn’t come by the end of summer I’ll probably get the 935.

    I thought the same thing. No don’t say you’ll buy the 935. I won’t. I’m really considering making the jump from Polar to Garmin. But the 935 is too much watch. I could buy it but I want a 245 and sooner is better to get me to make a jump. If it had music on board that would be A.. MAZING. Why would Garmin release a running watch in October. Let’s get those summer runs in with a new running watch. I also want to get a cycling computer but Garmin has to first get me with a watch. We shall see. Nice rant 😐

    What are the chances Garmin will mix the design of the 235 and the function of the Vivoactive HR into the 245? I want the features of the Vivoactive, but the design of the 235…

    I thought they wanted to get everything moved over to the new software and hardware platform ? I would hope the 235 replacement comes soon. I want to move off my ms band but wont waste money on the 235 since it will stop getting updates soon and I would prefer better battery life

    I am using a Forerunner 225. Really happy with it actually. All I really miss is music (connect to my bluetooth headset).

    Any more news on when the 245? Release date, specs, design? I hope it does not change much from the 235.
