As the world heads into November 2022 and the cold of late autumn rolls in, in many places it’s the last chance to explore the natural beauty of the fall season before the winter snowfall begins in earnest. aBlogtoWatch and Garmin are here to help with these late autumn excursions though our latest giveaway, where one winning community member will take home the Garmin MARQ Adventurer – a truly modern take on the tool watch that combines robust smartwatch functionality with a premium feel, bold styling, and durable titanium construction to handle nearly any adventure.
At 46mm-wide and 14.2mm-thick, the Garmin MARQ Adventurer’s brushed titanium case should demand attention on the wrist, while its narrow bezel design maximizes space for its touchscreen dial. The overall form is undeniably rugged, with an engraved, heavily textured compass bezel and a set of broad inverted pushers for easy operation. Around back, the caseback is fitted with a high-end sensor suite, allowing the MARQ Adventurer to perform a wide array of fitness tracking functions. Despite being a smartwatch, the Garmin MARQ Adventurer is every bit as durable as a standard mechanical timepiece, offering a solid 100 meters of water resistance.
While the sunlight-visible, transflective MIP touchscreen dial of the Garmin MARQ adventurer offers a suite of complications such as a chronograph, automatic GPS-linked time correction, customizable alarms and a sunrise/sunset tracker, the smartwatch’s functionality comes into its own with its array of unique outdoor-focused functions. Adventurous wearers can use the MARQ Adventurer’s orienteering feature, along with a topographical map app, multi-GNSS tracking for positioning in remote locations, a heart rate monitor, a pulse oxygen sensor combined with an altimeter to track blood oxygen levels at higher altitudes, physical stress score tracking, hydration monitoring, and respiration tracking. The MARQ Adventurer also offers ClimbPro ascent planning to track and plan an optimum climbing route, a backcountry skiing telemetry suite, PacePro rate tracking for planned runs along varying grades, preloaded maps of over 2,000 ski resorts and 41,000 golf courses worldwide, a heart rate variability tracker, a physical training tracker, a barometer, and a unique power-saving expedition app that allows the MARQ Adventurer to run for weeks without charging. In between adventures, the MARQ Adventurer also provides wearers with a full suite of standard smartwatch functionality, alongside tailored sports-centric app suites for running, swimming, cycling, and golf.
The rechargeable battery inside the Garmin MARQ Adventurer sidesteps many of the power reserve concerns common to smartwatches, offering wearers up to 12 full days of battery life in smartwatch mode. Garmin completes the MARQ Adventurer with a luxurious Italian vacchetta leather strap in rich saddle brown, along with an added black silicone rubber strap for truly rugged situations. MSRP for the Garmin MARQ Adventurer is $1,750 USD.
