The most recent beta versions of the Garmin Forerunner 245 and 945 include PacePro.

PacePro support was added to the most recent version of the Forerunner 245 Series Beta.

The most recent beta versions of Forerunner 245 and 945 include PacePro as an additional feature. The Fenix 6 family of wearables is the only Garmin product currently available with this functionality.

Users are able to run more efficiently over a variety of terrains because of the functionality. This is accomplished by providing assistance that is elevation-based, grade-adjusted, and takes into consideration the particular pacing preferences that you have entered.

You may either do this in advance using a Garmin Connect route or by selecting a route and then defining what the segments, miles, and laps should be.

The best part of PacePro is that it gives you feedback in real-time, allowing you to adjust the pace of your run accordingly. To put it another way, it serves as an aid in the form of a supporting tool that helps you pace yourself when travelling through racing tracks that are not flat.

The watch displays information such as the distance to the next split, the target split pace, the actual split pace, and more. Users of the app also receive a full PacePro splits breakdown, in addition to a chart that displays instances in which their speed was either slower or faster than their goal pace.

During the launch of the Fenix 6, Garmin announced that they would be introducing PacePro to additional devices, but they did not specify which devices would get it. It was generally speculated that the Forerunner 945 and the Forerunner 245 would be updated to include the function.

The most recent Beta firmware releases have provided conclusive evidence for this assertion. While the Forerunner 945 comes equipped with virtually everything that can be found on the Fenix 6, the Forerunner 245 does not include a barometer. According to DC Rainmaker, in order to get PacePro operating on the 245, you will first need to upload a pre-set route from Garmin Connect, and then the device will compute the pace/elevation for you.
