GET Garmin Forerunner 745 at the best price in Kenya from Starmac Technologies.

With the Forerunner 745 GPS Running & Triathlon Smartwatch from Garmin, serious athletes get a device that can monitor their bodies, record detailed training stats, and provide essential connectivity features when they’re not working out. A host of training features are provided, including built-in sports profiles for running, swimming, triathlon, and more. When outside, access to multiple GNSS allow for extremely accurate tracking, letting you go off the trail and still find your way back to base camp.

As you push yourself physically, a variety of monitors give you vital information about your body and how it’s handling the strain. The Forerunner 745 gives you a wrist-based heart rate monitor and pulse ox sensor and provides you with a VO2 Max score to assess how well you can expect to perform at any given moment. When your workout is through, you can use the Forerunner to receive texts, emails, and other alerts. You can even make contactless payments with it at any Garmin Pay-compatible checkout. All of this technology comes in a lightweight and durable package that weighs only 1.7 oz
