Garmin hits new personal best with MARQ Performance watches
Garmin has upped the ante once again on its MARQ collection, launching exclusive Performance Edition MARQ watches. The brand says the updated editions come with materials that allow athletes, explorers, aviators and drivers to comfortably pursue their passions without sacrificing style. With the addition of silicone rubber straps to the MARQ Driver and MARQ Aviator, and new Heart Rate Monitor (HRM) and tempe sensor bundle options for MARQ Athlete and MARQ Adventurer, Garmin hopes the Performance Edition MARQ watches can “make a great addition to any watch collection for top performance in all activities. “ Commenting on the update, Dan Bartel, Garmin’s vice president of global consumer, said: “Our mission is to deliver superior products that enrich our customers’ lives; to help them pursue their passions, achieve their goals and beat yesterday. “The MARQ collection is an outward expression of our consumers’ aspirations, and we’re confident these Performance Edition MARQ watches will help athletes, explorers, drivers and pilots take their passions to the next level.” MARQ users can also send and receive messages remotely from their watch when paired with Garmin’s inReach satellite communicators. No matter the adventure, inReach gives users peace of mind, so however far or off-grid they go, they’ll always be connected with global two-way messaging, location tracking, and critical SOS functions. Available now, MARQ Athlete Performance Edition with HRM Pro bundle, MARQ Adventurer Performance Edition tempe bundle, MARQ Driver Performance Edition and MARQ Aviator Performance Edition prices will start at around $1,500.
