THE OVER­ALL WIN­NER IS…

Australian T3 - - STATE OF THE ART -

GARMIN FORE­RUN­NER 645 MU­SIC

$599, garmin.com

WE’RE IM­PRESSED It’s got the most ac­cu­rate GPS and HR, with the most ad­vanced run­ning met­rics, now with added smart­watch perks (and with­out need­less gim­micks), good bat­tery, good func­tion­al­ity, and it’s light and comfy on the wrist. It seems churl­ish to want more.

WE’D IM­PROVE There’s no touch­screen (though that can be a dis­trac­tion) and mu­sic stream­ing would be the next log­i­cal level. The in­ter­face is oc­ca­sion­ally slow and some will be put off by price.

THE FI­NAL WORD Garmin is still the mar­ket leader. And now its flag­ship Fore­run­ner is a stylish lit­tle blighter too.
