    Excellent Everyday Carry

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This little watch punches way above its price, offering a multitude of features and customization. Battery life often exceeds a week with daily use (workouts, constant HR monitoring, GPS, etc). Thankfully as battery and GPS technology has progressed, watches have gotten smaller and smaller and the Forerunner 45 is no exception. It fits nicely on my wrist and isn't restrictive or inconvenient to wear. The Garmin Connect companion app is incredibly full-featured - offering a complete perspective on your health with sleep metrics, net calories, body battery and even a very accurate estimate of your V02 max.

    All in all the 45 is a great watch if you're looking for a well-rounded picture of your physical health and wellbeing for a very attractive price point.
