The Garmin Forerunner 645 Tolerates The Cold Much Better Than The Fitbit Ionic.

I got the Operating Temperatures for the new Garmin Forerunner 645 directly from Garmin — by posing the question on Amazon and getting the answer from the ‘manufacturer‘, i.e., Garmin. See above.

The Forerunner 645 low temperature range is ACCEPTABLE — especially since I have my own +5°F (-15°c) cut-off for running in the cold.

So, this is another BIG plus for the Garmin Forerunner 645. It really looks like a pretty decent ruggedized watch.

The Fitbit Ionic is really NOT suited for use in cold climes such as New Hampshire.

Intrigued by Garmin recommendation that it is best to have a fully charged battery prior to cold weather outings. I guess that is partly because the battery will drain faster in the cold.

So, this was good to know.
