The perfect blend of sophisticated design and everyday convenience
MARQ collection is designed with superior craftsmanship and attention to detail. Built with materials like sapphire crystal, ceramic and jacquard-weave nylon. It features unique design elements including titanium, leather, nylon and silicone bracelets. Moreover, straps are carefully chosen with the user in mind and used across the entire collection.
The new collection is built with high performance Grade-5 titanium which is five-time stronger and harder than most steels, making it more scratch-resistant and lightweight on the wrist compared to stainless steel.

The Marq provides up to 16 days of battery life in smartwatch mode, which means you don’t have to worry about charging while travelling or even overnight. MARQ collects vital biometric data while sleeping to give individualized information on sleep quality, stress, and recovery. The watch comes with a magnetic charger that aligns easily with each MARQ watch, with a charge time of one hour—twice as fast as the previous design.
Premium Features for the Modern Explorer
The MARQ collection includes Garmin’s suite of 24/7 health and wellness features like wrist-based heart rate, respiration and stress tracking, advanced sleep insights, Body-Battery™ energy monitoring and a new Jet Lag Adviser1. Whether a global traveller or an athlete participating in events across the country or overseas, the Jet Lag Adviser helps users feel their best mentally and physically.
The adviser uses sleep history and other metrics to recommend users about light exposure, sleep schedule and exercise to minimize the effects of jet lag for their next long-distance.The feature will also suggest what to do and at what time to quickly adjust to the new time zone (while travelling) to provide reminders like nutrition and caffeine intake. Garmin connect app™ will enable users to enter their travel details in the app for it to track how their body’s internal clock is adjusting to the new destination.
New to all MARQ watches, the collection includes support for multi-band GNSS, multi-frequency GPS (L1 + L5) and Garmin SatIQ™ technology, which secures superior positioning accuracy in any environment while optimizing battery life. No matter where the adventure may lead, this technology automatically selects the right satellite mode for the environment in real time.
Meet the MARQ Collection
Suited for any competition, MARQ Athlete is built with a titanium case, brushed DLC-coated bezel and fashioned with a lightweight vented silicone rubber strap selected for secure fit and accurate sensor readings. With MARQ athelete, users will be able to track all aspects of their performance, training and recovery with advanced metrics like training readiness, which gives a score based on sleep quality, recovery, training load and more, so they can determine whether it’s a good day to push the limits or take it easy. For runners, MARQ Athlete includes a wide range of advanced training features like PacePro™, which keeps a runner’s pacing strategy on track with grade-adjusted guidance as they run a course, and real-time stamina to track and manage exertion through activity to avoid burnout. In addition to daily activity tracking, the MARQ Athlete comes preloaded with sports apps for all athletic pursuits like running, cycling, swimming, skiing, golf, pickleball & tennis, gym workouts, and surfing, just to name a few, along with easy-to-follow animated cardio, strength, yoga and Pilates workouts.
MARQ Adventurer features an innovative edge to edge leather design and durable FKM rubber hybrid strap to work in a casual setting as well as during activity. It combines the elegance of a leather strap with increased sweat and stain resistance. The compass bezel uses cardinal directions and 360-degree markings to help keep users on track as they use the Orienteering feature to navigate to their destination.
With a golf course-inspired color scheme, green ceramic inlay, custom etched bezel, and tritone green jacquard-weave nylon strap, the love for the game won’t go unnoticed. Preloaded with over 42,000 worldwide golf courses, MARQ Golfer will autodetect which course is being played to give precise distances to the front, middle and back of the green, plus slope direction with Green Contours (Active Garmin Golf™ app membership required).

Crafted with nautical details like a navy ceramic bezel with regatta timer and race-inspired striped jacquard weave nylon strap, MARQ Captain makes the perfect first mate. The built-in Regatta Timer helps racers cross the starting point at precisely the right time, utilizing the GPS time to burn to calculate the ideal position and a countdown timer that shows time to the gun. For better situational awareness on the water, Alerts and Alarms will signal to imminent tide changes and anchor drag. Access the autopilot right from the wrist with MARQ Captain to change heading, engage pattern steering and follow a route. MARQ Captain also includes profiles for other on-the-water activities like kayaking, standup paddleboarding, windsurfing, kitesurfing and kiteboarding.
Whether a pilot or an aviation enthusiast, MARQ Aviator builds on a passion for all things flight. It is designed with a brushed titanium bracelet, swept-wing links and locking clasp, plus ceramic 24-hour GMT bezel. MARQ Aviator can be used to navigate to a location or waypoint in the worldwide aeronautical database or to choose the nearest function to activate a path to a nearby airport. With aviation alerts, pilots can set a minimum crosswind and flight condition they’re comfortable with and be notified when it's a good time to go flying. For world travelers, MARQ Aviator’s Jet Lag Adviser watch face displays the aviator’s home time zone, a “feels like” time and, once fully acclimated, will automatically update to show 24/7 guidance on light, sleep and exercise.
