With this very first video I start a new section on the WatchAdvisor Magazine and YouTube channel. It’s about connected watches. The first collection of connected watches I want to present you are the five new ones from GARMIN belonging to the MARQ collection.

On the occasion of the presentation of the GARMIN MARQ “Driver”, GARMIN MARQ “Aviator”, GARMIN MARQ “Captain”, GARMIN MARQ “Expedition” and GARMIN MARQ “Athlete” I talked to Bradley C. Trenkle, VP Outdoor Business Segment of Garmin International Inc. There couldn’t be any one better then him to explain you why GARMIN launched itself in that segment of very stylish, high-tech connected watches with a lot of smart functions.

A GARMIN MARQ is much more than just another fancy tool watch. The five GARMIN MARQ watches are in terms of design and material used a huge step forward for the company. In my opinion GARMIN has just defined a completely new luxurious segment of connected watches. There is a model representing each of the five main pillars of GARMIN and they have one big asset in common: The absolute best available GPS-technology.

Let me know what you think about the GARMIN MARQ watches.

The prices are shown at the end of the video. During BASELWORLD next week I will film some hands-on-videos for you guys. And later in the year some detailed hands-on-videos on the scenes will follow.

The interview was filmed in Barcelona by Ferry Dietl.

The interview was edited in Switzerland by Jorge Oswald.

Great introduction touching all the points!
Guys!! the delivery of his speech sounded like someone was running their nails down a chalk board!
It became so annoying you wanted to tell him to drink some water!
Have him stick to product management and have the real professionals deliver a compelling speech!
All the best
