Garmin Reveals GPS Smartwatch Range

When it comes to luxury-ware in the tech market, there is clearly a very strong market for companies to produce the most highest specifications of smartwatches available.

Apple, for example, has already enjoyed some success in this area. Albeit, and rather unusually, they have never strictly targeted the ‘high-end’ of the field.

Garmin is, however, the latest to throw their hat (or should that be watch?) into the ring with their latest release of fitness-focussed, GPS, smartwatches.
The Range!

The range released includes 5 models, but before you go getting too excited. Garmin is not targeting the likes of Apple with this design. Think more Rolex, Breitling and Omega.

The Marq Driver ($2,500) – Designed for racing enthusiasts, it holds data for over 250 international tracks. In addition, it can also record lap times based on the GPS software.

The Marq Aviator ($1,950) – Designed specifically for pilots offering navigation and useful tools.

The Marq Captain ($1,850) – As you might expect with the naming so far, this is designed for sailors. It, again, has navigation features but also a ‘man overboard’ emergency beacon.

The Marq Expedition ($1,750) – Comes with highly detailed maps and designed for those who like cross-country, hiking and exploration.

The Marq Athlete ($1,500) – The least expensive of the range with a specific focus on lap times and fitness.

This is reflective of the below image which runs left to right of the above list.

Where Can I Get One?

Well, assuming you have a lot of money, think high-end jewellers or super tech stores. In other words, don’t expect these to be appearing on Amazon in time for the black friday sales!

You can visit the official Marq website via the link here!

What do you think? – Let us know in the comments!

Plan a Trip

Use BaseCamp to plan your next hiking, biking, motorcycling, driving or off-roading trip. You can view maps, plan routes, and mark waypoints and tracks from your computer and then transfer them to your device.

Track Draw feature lets you trace your planned route and view elevation changes, helping you estimate the difficulty of a hike or bike ride. Plan the perfect scenic route for your next road trip, making sure your navigator takes you through certain waypoints. Play back your routes and tracks over time and save and share your adventure.

Survey the Terrain

BaseCamp displays your topographic map data in 2-D or 3-D on your computer screen, including contour lines and elevation profiles. Load map data from your handheld device, or import maps you’ve downloaded or purchased on DVD or microSD™ card. Consider our TOPO series maps, which offer detail on a scale of either 1:100,000 or 1:24,000.
Geotag Photos

BaseCamp lets you geotag photos, associating them with specific waypoints. You can see the exact scenery at any given location. Transfer the photos to your handheld device, publish photos directly to Picasa™, or email your geotagged photos directly to friends or family so they can navigate right to your favorite spots in the future.
Transfer Satellite Images

With BaseCamp and a BirdsEye Satellite Imagery subscription, you can transfer an unlimited amount of satellite images to your outdoor or fitness device and seamlessly integrate those images into your maps to get a true representation of your surroundings. It makes it easy to scout campsites, sources of water, potential hazards and more. If you prefer raster topographic maps, you can also download BirdsEye Select maps and pay only for the data you download.
