Garmin Introduces the Forerunner 645 Music GPS Running Watch

Garmin Australia has annouced the Forerunner 645 Music, a GPS running watch with integrated music that gives athletes the freedom to enjoy their favourite tunes on a run or during a workout without having to take a phone along.

Whether out for a run with friends, or gearing up for race day, the Forerunner 645 Music makes it easier for runners to get the data they need. In addition to 24/7 heart rate monitoring, it includes advanced running dynamics, performance monitoring tools, connected features and thousands of ways to customise with free watch faces, widgets, data fields and apps through the Garmin Connect IQ store. With the introduction of the Forerunner 645 Music, the sporty style of the Forerunner line is getting a sophisticated makeover; the metal bezel, chemically strengthened glass and interchangeable bans make it easy to wear all day, every day.

“Listening to music helps most of us keep our momentum going during those long or particularly difficult runs,” said Adam Howarth, General Manager, Garmin Australasia. “Now, with the addition of integrated music and Garmin play, the Forerunner 645 Music will help give athletes the independence they’ve been looking for while still providing them with the quality and accuracy of our other running products that they have come to rely on.”

The Forerunner 645 Music gives users an extra pep in their step with on-device music storage, up to 500 songs. Download offline playlists from selected music streaming services, or transfer music from a computer directly to the watch. Once the playlist is loaded, pair with a set of compatible Bluetooth headphones and go.

Additionally, when in need of a bottle of water or a quick bite to eat, Garmin Pay contactless payment solution lets users pay for purchases with their watch and keep on moving. This feature means athletes can leave their cash and cards at home and still stop for a bite to eat along their route.

Then, when paired with a compatible smartphone, the fitness band automatically uploads to Garmin Connect: the company's online fitness platform where users can track workouts, sleep patterns and join online challenges. Directly from the wrist, users will be able to receive and respond to text messages, view social media updates, emails and more.

The Forerunner 645 Music features up to 7 days of battery life in smartwatch mode and up to 5 hours GPS mode with music. It is available in a black or cerise band for AU$599.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
