Garmin launches new $3,000 Marq Carbon watches – Wareable


Garmin has launched its new Garmin Marq Carbon collection – the next generation of its supercharged (and expensive) sports watch range.

The Marq Carbon case is made from 130 layers of carbon fiber, and it’s the lightest in the Marq line-up.

The strap is made from perforated FKM leather, nylon or silicone.

On the tech front, there’s an AMOLED display with a domed sapphire lens, for extra ruggedness and 16 days of battery life.

All of the new Marq Carbon collections get multi-band GPS with SatIQ, which saves on battery power, TOPO maps, and the new sleep tracking, sleep coach, and Body Battery improvements.

There are three members of the new Garmin Marq Carbon range: Athlete, Golfer and Commander.
