Looking to get a new Garmin smartwatch? In this unboxing and review, I share my experience with the new Garmin Forerunner 245 Music after my first day of use. The Garmin Forerunner 245 features Spotify internal music storage, 7 days of battery life, and Garmin Coach with adaptive training plans. All for only $350. In this review, I also compare the Garmin Forerunner 245 Music with the Garmin Instinct, Garmin Forerunner 645, and Garmin Vivomove HR.
