Pretty self-explanatory wouldn’t you say. Help me out. Tell me what would work for YOU.

I am actively working with my friends at ‘HRM USA‘ to try and improve the upgrade option.

Hence the need for feedback. Might as well get it right upfront. So, that is the goal.

Please help me out here. I am ‘OK’ (thanks). I can get upgrades. I am trying to look out for YOU.

Can I Justify Getting The New Garmin MARQ ‘Athlete’ Or ‘Expedition’?

Though I try to keep up with Garmin rumors the announcement of the MARQ series caught me totally flat-footed (and that had nothing to do with my knee surgery last week).

Wow.

On Google News, this morning, I was informed that the MARQ was $2,500, but I have since found out that that is for the ‘DRIVER’ model aimed at race drivers. That is a heavy watch, with a heavy metal band, not at all suited for my 24×7 wear.

The ‘ATHLETE’ & ‘EXPEDITION’, at $1,500 & $1,750 respectively, would be the logical upgrades to my Fenix 5 Plus.

Yes, I could upgrade, quite attractively & affordably, through the HRM USA VIP Club — I one of the founding members. Plus, I am a long-term GRMN shareholder. So, when Garmin does well I make out anyway.

But, but, but …

Yikes.

I hope I am wrong but at first glance this looks like but lipstick on my Fenix 5 Plus. Nothing majorly new, e.g., EKG/ECG, blood pressure monitoring or a superduper AMOLED display, to justify this premium pricing.

Yes, I need to do some research.

Yes, I might luck out and get one for evaluation.

Treat this as but a foreplay post. I will do more. This was just to get the subject on the table so to speak.
