Let us face it, your typical Garmin watch is not designed for a looker. Super competent? Sure. Rugged to the intense? Naturally. Smarter than you’d expect? Obviously. Nevertheless, you would not exactly match with you to a wedding. All of making the Garmin Marq Captain: American Magic Edition a very different breed of sports watch.
For the unfamiliar, Garmin’s Marq watches would be the fitness brand’s”pro” array in terms of both design and performance. You will find a bunch of them from the running-focused Athlete into the outdoors-minded Adventurer. If you are really serious about your chosen sport, odds are there’s a Marq dedicated to it. While the Garmin Marq Captain: American Magic Edition is ostensibly a sailing view, it has got charm to spare dry land also. Here is what we made after spending a fortnight with this thing.
Cards on the table, we have not set foot on a ship since we left Sea Scouts (it is something, google it) in the pimpled age of 17. We reside in semi-lockdown in London the chance to spend a day on the open sea wasn’t readily offered.
So while the Marq Captain: American Magic Edition comes with an abundance of nautical tracking features — from sail grinding training activities to tack assistance and even man overboard marking — we haven’t tested any of these. Odds are they function just fine, because you’d expect as much from a 1,599 watch. If you are likely to use them frequently, then wait until the entire world can get back to the water and consult a person whose expertise amounts to over understanding the difference between port and starboard. It comes with the capacity to track an absolute wealth of sweat-inducing exercises, including running, open water swimmingpool, golfing, bouldering, rowing and more. To put it differently, it’s a multi-sport watch with a focus on sailing that you’re able to participate with as much or as little as you would like.
Why do a landlubber own one? Besides this Tag Heuer Connected and ceramic Apple Watch Series 5, that Marq Captain is pretty much in a category of its own thanks to the combination of a striking 46mmceramic, navy-blue bezel and ceramic case. You can easily mistake it for a conventional timepiece and that is sort of the point. It would not appear out of place as a portion of your officewear.
