Garmin Forerunner 245 Music Japan Edition coming to Malaysia for RM1799


If you like sporty smartwatches, you're probably familiar with the Garmin brand. The company Forerunner series are pretty popular, so Garmin is taking advantage of that. Earlier today, Garmin announced that it is releasing a Forerunner 245 Music Japan Edition in Malaysia, a limited edition model with only 100 units available.

As the name suggests, the Garmin Forerunner 245 Music Japan Edition comes with a design that's decidedly Japanese. It has a red and white colour scheme like the Japanese flag, as well as metal buckle and buttons for that extra premium feel. Additionally, the smartwatch will feature a Mount Fuji watch face.


In terms of features, it will provide advanced running dynamics, safety and tracking features via GPS, customisable training plans from Garmin Coach, and additional performance monitoring. Also, it'll be able to monitor your body when you sleep, pair with your smartphone to take calls, and more. The battery life is great too, with it rated at up to 6 hours in GPS mode with music streaming or up to 7 days if you're just using the smartwatch mode.

Garmin has confirmed that the Forerunner 245 Music Japan Edition is available from today for RM1799. You'll be able to grab one of the limited 100 units at Garmin stores in the locations listed below. With that said, what do you think about the new edition's design?
