Good in Garmin Forerunner 245 Music

This watch is bulky however it wasn’t troublesome to having it on my wrist. It has got buttons for navigation. There’s a button for UP & DOWN, turning display ON & OFF, START/STOP button, and a BACK button. It’s a bit challenging for a touchscreen smartwatch user for going through these buttons and the UI.

Being a fitness watch, it offers many functions and also runs accurately and smoothly. This watch can monitor steps tracking, sleep tracking, heart-rate, different sessions like Yoga, even gym sessions with different modes of exercises like bicep curls, lifts and etc.

This watch tracks all the sets of exercise you perform for which you don’t have to keep the count. As all the counts were accurate to my notice. Just thing is you’ve to change the sessions while switching through different exercises. The Connet App gives all of the sessioned data in an individual format if you’re a data seeker.

This watch is excellent for tracking your running and walking sessions. This watch has also got GPS about which I suggest you turning it off for having much better battery backup.

As a fitness device it covers most of your workout categories right from swimming to daily walks. This watch also has an option for personalised workout for who are more into the workouts and are much serious.

The coach plans can be downloaded for free and can be sent to the Watch for training by setting goals. I don’t need this much but again it’s much better for those who are fitness enthusiast.

The watch has got a good battery backup as it last around 5 days easily on a heavy usage including recieving notifications from your smartphone and fitness tracking.

I didn’t like about the watch is

It’s time consuming for getting used to the UI. It’s frustrating about pressing buttons which is unlike other fitness bands and watches. On having this watch synced to the Spotify, I faced issues a few times. You can take all you PC and Mac music to the watch but then too I entirely rely on the streaming platforms.

On thinking about getting connected to the Spotify on it I realised first to connect the wifi which needs a password for accessing it which is so much troublesome of pushing buttons. Another thing is the price point where considering everything Apple watch is the clear winner.

My opinions

This watch is very good for fitness enthusiast. This isn’t for fancy watch lovers. This watch is rugged too. It is also at a price point of ₹30,000/- plus. So, afterall it’s all about what you like a fancy or a rugged.
