Garmin Enters High-End Smartwatch Game with New MARQ Series
Built for sailing, racing, flying, exploring and all manner of adventure.
Garmin’s MARQ collection of luxury smartwatches are tailor-made to take on any adventure.
The ruggedly high-end timepieces feature a lightweight titanium construction, heat-and-pressure treated sapphire crystal lens and ceramic bezel inlay.
On the tech side, all five have a smart display with Garmin Pay and Garmin QuickFit connectivity, GPS functionality, and up to 12 days of battery life.
Beyond each MARQ model’s base features, each has purpose-specific functions that are suited for different adrenaline-pumping activities.
The MARQ Expedition is compatible with Garmin’s inReach Mini wireless satellite communicator, giving outdoorsmen the ability to monitor an environment’s topography, altitude and wind pressure in real-time.
Aside from showing wind speed, temperature and tide stats, the MARQ Captain also displays coastal charts, port conditions and includes a tack assist feature that shows whether a watercraft is being lifted or headed, making it an ideal choice for maritime adventurers.
The track day-ready MARQ Driver comes pre-loaded with 250 of the world’s most famous racing circuits, as well as built-in functions that calculate lap splits, average speed and delta time.
Boasting a slick “swept wing” design, the MARQ Aviator is packed with flight maps and pilot safety features such as Nexrad Weather Radar, airport information and Garmin cockpit integration.
With advanced running dynamics that meticulously track exercise stats, biometric sensors, and a comfortable silicone strap, the MARQ Athlete is made with the workout junkie in mind.
The Garmin MARQ collecton will cost between $1,500 and $2,500 when it goes on sale this spring.
