Garmin is giving various Forerunner smartwatches new features with a major update for the series. Specifically, Garmin has updated the Forerunner 45, Forerunner 45S, Forerunner 245, Forerunner 245 Music, Forerunner 745 and Forerunner 945; Garmin has been busy.

According to Wareable, Garmin has brought across the trail running VO2 max tracking to the Forerunner 245, 245 Music, 745 and 945. Additionally, you will now be able to tell these smartwatches about your Rate of Perceived Exertion (RPE) after a workout. Once updated, the smartwatches will ask you to rate your training from 1 to 10 and 'How did you feel', to which you can respond by using one of five smiley faces.

The RPE functionality is also available for the Forerunner 45 and Forerunner 45S. Moreover, Garmin claims to have improved how it tracks intensity minutes with its latest update. The changes do not start there, either. The Forerunner 245 and 245 Music now offer daily training suggestions for running and cycling that consider your training load, training conditions and recovery time.

Furthermore, the update introduces advanced sleep analysis to the Forerunner 745 and 945. Garmin states that the feature measures sleep metrics like sleep phases, which should provide additional sleep behaviour insights. The pair now supports an ultrarunning sport profile too that allows you to track how long you have spent resting.

Other improvements include an optimised fitness age indicator and the addition of animated cardio, pilates, strength and yoga workouts, which you can download through the Garmin Connect app. Garmin is now rolling out the updates globally for the Forerunner 45, 45S, 245, 245 Music, 745 and 945. You can check for updates within the Garmin Connect app or within the smartwatch itself.
