Garmin has just announced a new MARQ variant, this time it is the COMMANDER, which is a TACTICAL watch.
These are the only ‘new’ or restricted features that I see it has
- Jumpmaster, Tactical & Expedition modes
- Orienteering (!?)
- Night Vision mode
- Lighter than the ATHLETE coming in at 87 g (94 g with silicone rubber) vs 94g
- Same nylon strap as the CAPTAIN which fits wrists with a circumference of 135-213 mm
- Diamond-like Carbon (DLC) coated titanium BEZEL and CASE.
It’s listed as a “Modern tool watch with topographic maps and tactical functions” and comes in at a hefty $1950.00
In related news, the EXPEDITION mode has been renamed to ADVENTURER. Make of that what you will.
This TACTICAL variant release is in line with developments in the Fenix and Instinct ranges. For example, we recently saw the Garmin Instinct Coyote which is also billed as a TACTICAL watch.
