Analysis and handling of the forerunner 945 from Garmin.

Foreword

You may find that the connected watches are identical, with a small screen, rather fragile and not very evolutionary?Does it seem complicated to you to find your way through all the possible choices?

Several weak points on this watch :
– Not enough functionality for good health monitoring
– Its daily use
– Few sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications

Our analysis has identified all cases of use of this connected watch.

Health follow-up question, what is the forerunner 945 worth?

Many technological developments have taken place since the first health monitoring watches.They may or may not be coupled with other devices such as the telephone or computer.
Following our tests, this forerunner 945 has a low score for healthy use.That doesn’t in any way prevent you from buying it for aesthetic reasons.

The main difference with known watches is that it does not run on PropriƩtaire or Apple.This choice induces a greater difficulty to handle the different buttons and icons present.We would have preferred something more conventional.
After a few weeks, you will be more comfortable with its handling.
If sleep analysis is your priority, you will need to look at another model.
The accelerometer built into the watch provides accurate information about your fitness and health.It will then be possible to follow your activity during the day.This connected watch will, by monitoring your steps and arm movements, be able to establish the number of calories you will burn.
With the help of a built-in sensor, your heartbeat is also monitored and alerts are raised in case there are too many beats above normal.For those who need to analyze their heartbeat curve, you will have to choose another watch, as this model does not have one.

A connected and practical watch

Do you need a smart watch?It is a product that is sometimes expensive, for limited use.For the forerunner 945, this is what you can expect.
The model designed by Garmin offers an entry-level product.It gives the illusion of a high-end product, but is very far from the reality.
An interesting feature of this watch is the presence of a GPS.Some users will never use it.On the other hand, you should note the decrease in battery capacity in active GPS mode.
Please note that when it comes to taking your shower, it is not waterproof.
No security glass has been fitted to this watch.
You don’t have a touch screen on this watch.This watch does not support NFC function, so contactless payment is not possible with this watch.
Finally, we would have appreciated the Garminrtunity to listen to music on this model.You will have to choose another watch for this.

The right model for analyzing his sports activity?

A smartwatch allows you in some cases to record your sporting progress easily.It allows you to analyze performance in real time.Here’s the forerunner 945 detail.
With this product, Fossil is not for sportsmen.It is interesting, but not for those who want to improve their sports results.
The watch includes GPS support so you can track your runs.No need to have a smartphone paired with the watch.
The watch does not have a SIM card, and therefore does not have 3G access.However, this will mean a much longer battery life.
Another advantage of Garmin watches is the presence of heart rate monitoring.

On the other hand, if you are used to playing sports with music, this watch will be of no use to you.

A connected watch with which applications

Depending on the brand of the watch, the operating system used to operate the watch is not the same.The original applications may not be enough for some, hence the interest to choose the one with the most suitable OS.Applications that may correspond to health monitoring but also to the measurement of performance in sports.
Most of the time, you will have to content yourself with the applications installed by default on this smartwatch.
Due to its proprietary operating system, you will not be able to add other applications to this connected watch.Also, apart from the original applications, there is no possibility of having any others.
Finally, as far as applications are concerned, you will have to contact you from the default; no possibility to add new ones.On the other hand, it is an easy to use watch for entry-level applications.

Finally, The forerunner 945…

To conclude, this connected watch is not very technologically advanced and is very simple to use.It’s not too expensive, so you can easily change it if you want a more advanced model.
Several weak points appeared to us on this watch:
– Little functionality for health monitoring
– Its daily use
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications
