Top 5 Garmin Smartwatches: Make Your MARQ

Smartwatches have existed (if you can believe it) for a couple decades now. In that time, they’ve gained in both technological innovation and popularity since those first rudimentary models appeared. Among the best modern smartwatches are those made by Garmin. With a broad stable of smartwatch styles, the creme-de-la-creme is the MARQ lineup. Offering top-line specs, build quality, and tech, these are unparalleled tools for adventurers. Join along as we break down the top five Garmin smartwatches!

Key Features

Among those who rely on smartwatches, several features consistently appear as indispensable attributes. While the list differs depending on your individual needs, here are a few of the top reasons to consider adding a smartwatch to your collection:

Fitness Tracking – A smartwatch can keep track of your daily steps, and so much more, including heart rate and blood pressure monitoring, workout tracking, and sleep measurement.

Safe Traveling – Equipped with GPS, smartwatches can both track your location and guide you to where you want to be.

Social Media – All your social media accounts, on your wrist and at your fingertips.

Call and Text – With Bluetooth connectivity, a smartwatch can make and receive phone calls, and send and receive text messages, all without digging out your cell phone.

Find Your Phone – Speaking of cell phones, if you happen to misplace yours, most smartphones have a Find Your Phone feature that will help you do just that.

Music On The Go – Keep your phone in your pocket and your playlist in your ears.

Tell Time – Yep, a smartwatch does that, too.

Whatever your reason, or reasons, for wanting to own a smartwatch, there’s a Garmin MARQ collection smartwatch made just for you:
