PULSE OX SENSOR
This wrist-based sensor estimates your body’s blood oxygen saturation, which can help gauge how your body is absorbing oxygen — especially while you sleep.
This stat measures your exercise volume from the last 7 days and compares it to the optimal range for your fitness and recent training history.

Track your body’s energy levels so you can find the best times for activity and rest.
MUSIC ON YOUR WRIST

SAFETY AND TRACKING FEATURES
If you feel unsafe or if your watch senses that an incident occurred, assistance and incident detection features send your location to emergency contacts.
BUILT-IN SPORTS APPS
Switch up your workout routine with activity profiles for cycling, pool swimming, track running, elliptical, stair-stepper and more.
When used with a compatible accessory, Forerunner 245 Music measures crucial running metrics such as cadence, stride length, ground contact time and balance and more.
This metric evaluates your recent exercise history and performance indicators to let you know if you’re training productively, peaking or overreaching.
After each workout, the built-in recovery time advisor lets you know how long to rest before another big effort. It even accounts for all-day stress, sleep and daily activity outside of workouts.

Train smarter with VO2 max, an indicator of how you can expect to perform. This metric even accounts for changes in performance that could be caused by heat or altitude.
