Garmin today expanded its presence in India by launching its premium luxury watch collection called the Marq. The new collection includes four different models, namely the Marq Driver, Marq Athlete, Marq Aviator, Marq Captain, and the Marq Expedition. The watches sport always-on, sunlight-readable display panels and come with GPS support. There are also preloaded features such as built-in storage for music, Garmin Pay integration, smart notifications, and daily activity tracking. Additionally, Garmin has provided wrist-based heart rate and Pulse Ox2 sensors.
The latest range of Garmin Marq watches come with up to 12 days of battery life in the smartwatch mode. There are also GPS mode and UltraTrac mode with a single-charge battery life of up to 28 hours and 48 hours, respectively. The watches are also compatible with Garmin’s QuickFit solution that allows users to switch between multiple wrist straps and bracelets.
Preloaded with over 250 global racetracks, the Garmin Marq Driver is designed for racing enthusiasts. The smartwatch has features such as auto lap splits, live delta time, and a track timer. Particularly, the time tracker feature on the Marq Driver lets users time cars at the race track and calculate their average speed.
The Marq Driver comes with a hybrid bracelet that has a titanium shell on the outside and a soft silicone inner material to deliver a premium look and feel. Also, the smartwatch has a carbon grey Diamond-like Carbon (DLC) coating on top to resist scratches. It is touted to withstand a high vibration environment alongside resisting wear and tear.
For athletes, Garmin has the Marq Athlete that is made of titanium and comes with a silicone band. The watch offers advanced running dynamics, including V02 max and recovery time scale — available on the bezel. The running dynamics are also designed to further track workout stats, measure progress and fine-tune form. Athletes can also utilise the inbuilt sensors to view insights based on their performance and understand how well they are able to absorb oxygen.
