DURBAN – Garmin has come a long way in its 30-year history, from a brand synonymous with the global positioning system (GPS) navigation system to this week’s launch of a new generation sports smartwatch.
This is the MARQ collection of connected tool watches designed and engineered for those with a passion for extreme sports performance, exploring, flying, racing and water sports – and for the techies in our midst.
The watches have a titanium shell and are crafted to the finest standard to be practical but also beautiful pieces of jewellery.
They feature an always-on display, performance GPS and advanced sensors to track a wide variety of sporting activities including running, cycling, swimming, driving and more.
Included is premium smartwatch functionality including built-in music storage, smart notifications and advanced activity tracking. For those on extended ventures, the battery life ranges from 12 days in smartwatch mode up to 48 hours in Ultra Trac mode.
