- Which Garmin watch, forerunner 245 or 735XT
Want a new running watch, was set on a 245 until I saw the 735XT in a Black Friday deal.
I suspect there’s sod all in it but the main think that jumps is that the 245 has access the Galileo satellites as well as GLONASS where as the 735XT is just GLONASS.
Any thoughts?Posted 3 months agotomdSubscriber
I’ve had the 735XT for a couple years, used daily. It’s been really good. Battery is still fine, the glass seems unscratchable and the unit is still OK. Just about needing a new strap now but they’re fairly cheap. The 245 is newer and seems to have extra features for just running though.
There’s some chat here on the differences:Posted 3 months agoCraigWMember
Newer GPS on the 245 means better battery life, claims 24 hours with GPS and HR.
Not sure if there’s much difference for other features.
245 might be a bit better for smart features, ie connecting to your phone, or installing extra Connect IQ apps.
735 is better for cycling/triathlon. ie it has a proper multisport mode, and supports power meters.
I like my 245 Music anyway, it is a nice running watch.Posted 3 months ago
My Wife’s looking for a reasonably priced running watch after not being very impressed with a Fitbit Versa; do any of the Garmin’s have replaceable batteries
None have replaceable batteries that I know of.Posted 3 months ago
My defaults answer to the “reasonably priced running watch” question is always Forerunner 35, though that’s just been updated to the 45. The 35 is a great little watch and does all that most runner will ever need. Good battery life too.erictwingeMember
whats the catch with this? i know its not the music version, but seems an incredible price for a 645 (£175) https://www.sportpursuit.com/catalog/product/view/id/1895440Posted 2 months ago
