An exceptional Garmin connected watch with an authentic design
Inspired by more than 30 years of continuous innovation, the MARQ collection is designed with high-end materials, such as titanium, ceramic and sapphire crystal.
High-performance Grade 5 titanium is five times stronger than most steels for increased resistance to heat, corrosion and scratches, while being lighter and more comfortable on the wrist. The 46 mm case encases a domed sapphire crystal glass and a high-definition touchscreen AMOLED screen, which enriches the daily use of the connected watch and interactions with the map.
The bands have been carefully designed for each activity and offer titanium, hybrid leather, Jacquard-woven nylon and silicone versions.
Weeks of battery life in smartwatch mode allows continuous, uninterrupted tracking of health and wellness data. Indeed, during sleep, the watch records biometric data to provide personalized information on sleep quality, stress level and recovery.
