Garmin designed the Forerunner 745 with competitions and triathlons in mind. This watch has a host of features specifically geared towards this fitness style. And while it doesn’t support built-in map features, the Forerunner 745 uses multiple GPS protocols for greater accuracy and a wider spread of usable terrain.
Forerunner 745 has a comprehensive list of measurement tools and systems, including minute intensity, running dynamics, heart rate, cycling power, training status, training volume, performance status, race prediction, V02 Max, recovery time and training efficiency. This watch is the lightest, sleekest Garmin model that includes all of these features.
While the cost of putting this Garmin in the mid-range smartwatch lineup is high, it offers the best triathlon-focused features in its smallest form factor of any Garmin watch. In addition to other Garmin features, the feature that focuses primarily on cycling, running and swimming is why we chose the Forerunner 745 as ‘best gear for triathletes’.
