Garmin Forerunner 645(M) Gets Another Damning Review At Amazon — By A ‘Verified Buyer’.

This is NOT good. Very disappointing and discouraging. I, like so many others, was rooting for the Garmin Forerunner 645. On paper it looks irresistible.

Shame that Garmin rushed it out before it was ready for prime-time.

That step count accuracy is poor is extremely damning. That is the basic, core function. IF you can’t trust that, then there is no point getting the FR645.

I am more or less sure that I will not get a FR645 anymore. Not worth the risk. Thinking of getting a Forerunner 935 which gets better reviews, on a consistent basis, and has been on the market for over a year. So, it is proven.

The highlighted (i.e., in red box) comment, on the last line above, sums it all up — the impression that Garmin released it before it was ready to be released.

That was what they did with the Vivoactive 3 — as I found to my cost.

I had a hunch this would happen with the Forerunner 645, which is why I have maintained, from the start, that I was going to wait. I am so glad that I did NOT rush to get one.

I am, as you can see, monitoring this and keeping you posted. I will continue to do that.

It is, however, possible that I might not get a FR 645 after all! I might get a Forerunner 935 instead. It is a proven product which appears to be solid, stable and reliable.
