Our Comment

The Garmin Forerunner 745 is the successor of the 735XT and is a good option for runnners and triathletes whose budgets don't stretch to the Garmin Foreunner 945.  Overall it is lighter and its smaller case size at 43mm also means it should appeal to both male and female runners and triathletes.  As you would expect, there is comprehensive training analysis insights on the core sports, running, swimming and cycling.  Other additions such as the latest Elevate heart rate monitor, Pusle Ox monitor and key sensors such as GPS, Gallileo and GLONASS satellite suppport, barometric altimetric and motion sensors for indoor training means that it will capture a lot of data from your fitness regime.
