    INTRODUCING THE MARQ LINE, GARMIN’S HIGH-END TAKE ON A DIGITAL “TOOL WATCH”

    INTRODUCING THE MARQ LINE, GARMIN’S HIGH-END TAKE ON A DIGITAL “TOOL WATCH”

    MARCH 13, 2019 WORDS BY ED JELLEY https://wornandwound.com/introducing...al-tool-watch/



    You might be thinking why are we covering fitness watches here on Worn & Wound? Normally, we wouldn’t, but these new offerings from Garmin break the mold of your typical clunky, plastic fitness watch. They’re designed for those who prefer the on-the-wrist feel of an analog watch but want some “smart” features. The MARQ line is an interesting take on what Garmin calls the “modern tool watch”— blending computer-powered data, analog watch aesthetics, and premium construction throughout.

    Each of the models share the same 46-millimeter brushed titanium case and some core features, like an always-on screen behind a sapphire crystal. But things split off from there. Each watch is built for a specific task with different looks and design cues depending on their theme. Even though the display is fully digital, the MARQs display the time with graphics of analog hands, and they use several traditional watch features like pushers and purpose-driven bezels. Here’s a quick look at these five new watches from Garmin.

    They really do look good. But the price doesn't...

    Referring to MARQ line as modern tool watches makes a lot of sense. These are purpose-driven pieces designed and built to achieve a specific task like the dive/field watches of yesteryear, and Garmin’s banking on there being a market for watches with a narrow focus. The higher-end level of execution here isn’t cheap — the collection ranges from $1,500 to $2,500. Garmin

    An upscaled tool TIMEpiece similar to high end brands that charge an arm and a leg for a Eta G10 or 2824.

    These are a little more serious looking and upscale fitness tool watches. Although I'm not sure how many folks will go this route.
