I'm still waiting on the Forerunner 245, since this model is 2.5 years old now, but maybe the Forerunner 645 was the updated model.

Good price if you can't wait.

There's been a lot of talk about this. The current thought is that the Vivoactive 3 was the 230/235 replacement and that the 2xx and 7xx line are being killed off.

No, the 245 is expected for a Q3 2018 release. It will be priced in the $100 gap between VA3 and FR645

There really isn't anything between though. The biggest difference between the VA3 and the 645 (non music) is the buttons on the 645 and (I think) the ability to have swim workouts, a few additional field choices and running dynamics. I'm not sure what the could do that wouldn't overlap with one of the two. Removing the running dynamics piece and swim workouts wouldn't warrant a $50 price drop.

What Garmin *should* have done is released the 745 (essentially a 645 with the multi-sport software) at the $400 price, dropped the price of the non-music 645 to $299 and gotten rid of the 2XX series all together.
