Garmin, leader of world-class GPS smartwatches, today introduced the MARQ Carbon Editions, a luxurious and exclusive smartwatch collection crafted from 130 layers of Fused Carbon Fiber. The MARQ Carbon collection – comprised of the MARQ Athlete and MARQ Golfer, each equipped with a unique and impressive range of features. On top of being made of expertly crafted materials, it boasts a modern luxury design, durability, an easy-to-use vibrant AMOLED display, domed sapphire lens, and up to 16 days of battery life. It is thus truly the ultimate watch for every of its wearer’s adventures.
Ms. Hunsa Apanukul, Marketing team lead of Garmin Thailand, says, “As MARQ epitomizes Garmin’s elevated designs and sophisticated style, we are thrilled to continue the legacy with MARQ Carbon. The latest editions present the watch made from superb material like carbon fiber, which is twisted to form a spiral luxury and durable body. Lightweight and uniquely functional for athletes and adventurers, these editions present a one-of-a-kind tool watch that is ready to help you pursue all your passions”.
The Pinnacle of Design
MARQ Carbon highlights Garmin’s passion for exquisite design by introducing a uniquely engineered material to the industry: Fused Carbon Fiber. Each timepiece features a 46mm watch case and bezel inlay machined from 130 layers of Fused Carbon Fiber—making it the lightest MARQ collection yet. To create the watch body, every single layer of carbon is rotated to a unique angle to increase the strength of the initial block. The block then undergoes a combination of heat and pressure to align with the shape of the watch housing. Several hours of machining with precision diamond cutting tools results in a remarkable surface featuring a beautiful spiral design pattern that is both rugged and lightweight.
Blending luxury with performance, premium bracelets and straps – made from perforated FKM leather, jacquard-weave nylon or silicone — are used throughout the MARQ Carbon collection and are carefully designed with each user in mind. And with up to 16 days of battery life, each new tool watch can get users through their toughest adventures. When it’s time to recharge the watch, it’s quick and easy thanks to an intuitive magnetic charger that can restore the battery to 100% within an hour.
