Garmin 2019 Watch Releases

Garmin 2019 Watch Releases

Kings of the smartwatch world, Garmin were destined to bring out some incredible new releases for 2019. The Garmin MARQ collection was a huge hit at the beginning of the year for its five unique instruments designed to tackle almost every type of environment. Alongside this, we have also been treated to three new Garmin Instinct GPS smartwatches and the highly anticipated Fenix 5X Plus range for those looking for the ultimate multisport watch.

Many of the Garmin 2019 watch releases are ready to order now and some are expected to be released in the coming months. You can find all the information and specs you need about the new Garmin watch releases below.

One of the biggest reveals from Garmin for 2019 so far was undoubtedly the Garmin MARQ smartwatch collection. This range of wearables of is officially the most expensive smartwatch released from Garmin, filling the gap for those who want a watch with cutting edge technology and an immaculate design that will last a lifetime. Garmin are really stepping out of the box this year to push back against brands like TAG Heuer and Breitling who have recently tried their luck with their own collections of luxury smartwatches.

There are five Garmin MARQ watches in total with each one targeting their own specific wearer: the MARQ Athlete for the sport conscious, MARQ Expedition for hiking adventurers, the MARQ Captain for boating enthusiasts, MARQ Aviator for pilots and MARQ Driver for motor racing lovers. Each of the Garmin MARQ watches are designed from premium materials that are tailored to their affluent audience. The cases are crafted from lightweight titanium and equipped with luxury straps made from leather, metal or rubber that are designed to be comfortable, breathable and high-performing. The thing that we love most about these luxury smartwatches is that they don’t look out of place at a fancy dinner or in a boardroom and yet still do the job in their respective environments.

All of the Garmin MARQ watches come with 46mm titanium cases, domed sapphire crystal glass, 100 metre water resistance and a battery life of up to 12 days in smartwatch mode. As standard each model also comes with an alarm clock, timer, stopwatch, Bluetooth, ANT and WiFi connectivity, smart notifications, music storage for up to 2,000 songs and Garmin Pay.
