Garmin has updated its MARQ offering, taking the collection to its second generation.
The collection comprises the Athlete, Adventurer, Golfer, Captain and Aviator, which are all uniquely crafted to deliver in their individual fields.
Built with Grade-5 titanium and a vibrant AMOLED touchscreen display with domed sapphire lens, the MARQ (Gen 2) collection is stronger and brighter than before—yet remains forged from Garmin’s authentic DNA.
With dedicated feature sets, an enduring battery life of up to 16 days, and carefully curated materials, each MARQ timepiece is purposefully engineered for any of life’s adventures.
On the launch, Dan Bartel, Garmin VP of Global Consumer Sales, commented: “The MARQ collection is a true testament to Garmin’s commitment to superior quality, innovation and reliability.
“MARQ watches are modern-day trusted tools, genuine to our brand and designed for markets we’ve served for over 30 years. With authentic feature sets, smartwatch functionality and stunning premium materials, MARQ sets a new standard in the traditional watch industry.”
More than an accessory too, the MARQ collection includes Garmin’s suite of 24/7 health and wellness features like wrist-based heart rate, respiration and stress tracking, advanced sleep insights, Body-Battery energy monitoring and new Jet Lag Adviser1.
Using the user’s sleep history and other metrics, the adviser recommends amount of light exposure, a sleep schedule and exercise to minimize the effects of jet lag for their next long-distance single or multi-destination trip.
The feature will suggest what to do and at what time to quickly adjust to the new time zone and even push notifications to the wrist giving tips and reminders for things like caffeine intake, nutrition and more.
New to all MARQ watches, the collection includes support for multi-band GNSS, multi-frequency GPS (L1 + L5) and Garmin SatIQ™ technology, which secures superior positioning accuracy in any environment while optimizing battery life.
Expected to be available this month, the MARQ (Gen 2) collection ranges in price from $1,900 to $2,400.
