On Thursday, Garmin announced the release of five new smartwatches in its Marq series, designed for customers in the premium and luxury segments. The second generation of Marq smartwatches includes the Athlete, Adventurer, Golfer, Captain, and Aviator models.
The Marq Gen 2 series is crafted with Grade-5 titanium and features an AMOLED touchscreen display with a domed sapphire lens. These luxury smartwatches offer up to 16 days of battery life in smartwatch mode, and up to 42 hours in GPS mode.
The Marq series includes advanced features such as Jet Lag advisor, wrist-based heart rate, respiration and stress tracking, advanced sleep insights, and body-battery energy monitoring. The second-generation Marq collection is made of materials like sapphire crystal, ceramic, and jacquard-weave nylon. It features elements including titanium, leather, nylon, and silicone bracelets.
According to Garmin, the Grade-5 titanium used in the watches is five times stronger and harder than most steels, and is more scratch-resistant and lightweight compared to stainless steel. The 46mm watch case houses a domed sapphire lens and AMOLED touchscreen display. The new collection also includes support for multi-band GNSS, multi-frequency GPS (L1 + L5), and Garmin SatIQ technology.
The Marq smartwatches will be available for purchase online and offline, including Amazon, from February 25. Yeshudas Pillai, Country Head of Garmin India, said, “The Marq collection is a true testament to Garmin’s commitment to providing a luxury experience with super-premium quality, innovation, and reliability. The second-generation Marq collection is specifically designed for athletes, adventure and aviation enthusiasts. With this launch, we believe to cater to the luxury smartwatch market more abundantly, we have served for many years.”
