Garmin, a global leader in wearable technology, has recently announced the launch of its latest innovation in the world of smartwatches: the MARQ Carbon collection. The new edition comprises three luxury tool watches: the MARQ Athlete, MARQ Golfer and MARQ Commander.


These breathtaking timepieces are meticulously crafted from 130 layers of a unique material called Fused Carbon Fiber and incorporate other high-tech materials such as an AMOLED touchscreen, resulting in a perfectly balanced blend of technology and style.


As a rule, cool watches like Garmin are bought by people who know their worth. This category of people also includes iPhone lovers, because good and reliable technology is the face of every independent consumer. In their watches, as well as in the phone, which is always at hand, you want to install only necessary but important applications.


If you download for your watch, for example, applications for reading the work of the heart, sports achievements or an organizer, then the phone will already have apps that support iPhone from personal hobbies and hobbies. And these can be both ordinary games and those that bring money, as with online casinos. After all, who knows who managed to earn money for a new Garmin watch?


In this article, with the help of our guest expert, Ella Houghton, we will take a closer look at this exciting new release from Garmin and explain what exactly makes these watches so unique. More on Ella’s work can be found here.

The Composition Of The MARQ Carbon Collection

One of the standout features of the new collection is the composition of the watches. They each feature a slightly different design and purpose, while at the same time retaining a common foundation of materials that include:


  • 130 layers of Fused Carbon Fiber for the case and bezel inlay
  • Domed sapphire lens
  • An AMOLED touchscreen display


Perhaps the most exceptional component is the trademarked speciality material of Fused Carbon Fiber, which is produced through a cutting-edge method in which every single layer of carbon is rotated to a unique angle to increase the strength of the initial block. Through a combination of cutting with diamonds, heat and pressure the final design is born, resulting in an exceptionally strong material, while remaining lightweight.
