Garmin ‘MARQ Expedition’ Silicone Strap Is 22mm ‘Quick Fit’, BUT Is Different To Others.

The Garmin MARQ Expedition comes standard with a $199 Italian Vacchetta leather strap. It is very nice. Too nice, in my opinion, for everyday use, especially if you, like I, are in the habit of taking showers with your Garmin still on your wrist.

Luckily, Garmin includes, for ‘FREE’, an extra black silicone rubber watch strap. It is, in theory, a 22mm Quick Fit like those for a Garmin Fenix 5.

But, the strap is very different; everything about it is different. It has a raised shoulder and a bigger clasp. There is no gap between it and the watch. I like it.

My problem — I can’t find ANY other bands like it, even in black.

I have 5 Fenix 5 bands in different colors. They fit on the MARQ. But, they look different to the black band.

So, just a heads up.

My LSAT AliveCor ECG
from April 29, 2019.

My heart rate was just one beat above the cut-off for Bradycardia!

I got the AliveCor ‘KardiMobile’ last September, for $99 (from Amazon), to allay Apple Watch 4 envy.

I have no regrets about getting it. It was cool to do my own ECGs and those of relatives.

But, none of us had any heart issues! That is NOT a bad thing. But, after awhile it becomes boring. Samo-samo. So, it just sat there not getting used. But, the Kardi APP can be annoying. Reminds you daily to take an ECG.

So, I decided to sell it. Was easy enough. I am fairly chuffed with the price I got $67 + shipping.

So, I had it for 8-months and that cost me $32. That is not bad in my book.
