Garmin Forerunner 645 Music GPS running watch with on-device music storage announced

Samsung’s Gear Fit2 and Gear IconX were one of the first devices with support for on-device music storage, now Garmin has introduced the first smartwatch that lets you store music for offline listening. It can store up to 500 songs so that you can connect a Bluetooth headset and play them when you are working out, without the need of a smartphone.

It has 24/7 heart rate monitoring2, advanced running dynamics, performance monitoring tools, connected features and more. It has a metal bezel, chemically strengthened glass and interchangeable bands.

Training status automatically evaluates previous exercise and fitness levels to let athletes know if they are training productively, peaking or overreaching.
