Garmin wants you to replace your Rolex or Omega with its new Marq smartwatch

They cost up to £2,250, with different models for those with a passion for flying, racing, sailing, exploring or fitness

Garmin Marq

Garmin has just announced a new collection of connected tool watches which are made using traditional watch manufacturing techniques but equipped with an array of smart features.

The collection is comprised of the Marq Aviator, Marq Driver, Marq Captain, Marq Expedition and Marq Athlete, each designed and engineered for those inspired by their passion in flying, racing, sailing, exploring and fitness. 

All of them are attractive, chunky timepieces aimed at replacing your traditional timepiece.

Each watch is built from titanium, which is lightweight, yet incredibly strong, and features a domed sapphire crystal display for ultimate scratch resistance.

Each watch has its own character, but all feature an always-on "sunlight-readable" display, GPS and advanced sensors like wrist-based heart rate and wrist-based pulse oxygen to track a wide variety of sports.

It also provides built-in music storage, Garmin Pay, notifications and advanced activity tracking for everyday use. 

Battery life ranges from 12 days in smartwatch mode to 28 hours in GPS Mode and up to 48 hours in "UltraTrac" mode.   

Check out the Marq collection below:

The Marq Aviator is a classic GMT-style watch, with combination of brushed titanium and a polished black ceramic 24 hour-bezel. It's complemented by an aviation inspired multi-link titanium bracelet with “swept wing” design and micro adjustment which is comfortable on the wrist for in-flight wear and transitions to a stylish timepiece out of the cockpit, too. The GMT bezel gives pilots quick access to multiple timezones, plus two additional time zones represented through local airport codes on the watch face. The Aviator also comes with dedicated aviation features including maps with airport details and advanced safety features such as Direct-To-Navigation, Nexrad Weather Radar, a worldwide airport database and Garmin cockpit integration.
