Open Championship – Top-10 Greatest Hits – #3

No Italian golfer had ever come close to winning the Open Championship, but at the 124th staging of the venerable event in 1995, Bergamo-born Constantino Rocca was in contention coming to the final two holes

It’s tricky to balance performance, comfort and style when it comes to wearables but the good folks at Garmin seem to have done just that with their latest launch, the MARQ Golfer.

Designed to be worn on and off the course, MARQ Golfer is built with premium materials, a 46-millimeter titanium case and ceramic bezel with custom etched 1-18 golf hole markings and a tritone green jacquard-weave nylon strap. The luxury watch comes preloaded with 41,000 golf courses and allows for seamless game-tracking. It boasts an array of features to help enhance a golfer’s game, such as PlaysLike Distance, Hazard View and a Virtual Caddie to analyse critical factors like wind speed, course layout, and a golfer’s speed and a golfer’s club performance to select the best suited club for each shot.

In addition to golf the MARQ Golfer combines everyday smart features and multisport capabilities with Garmin Global Brand Ambassador and golf legend Greg Norman commenting; “As someone who’s been involved in the game of golf for many decades, I’ve seen the evolution in golf technology and have seen first-hand the benefits of wearing a Garmin on my wrist”.

“At first glance, you wouldn’t expect the MARQ Golfer to have ultra-high-end GPS technology and smart features because it looks like a beautiful piece of jewellery, but I’ve found it’s the perfect watch to wear all day, both in the office and on the course, added Norman.”

MARQ Golfer features a domed sapphire lens and an always-on, sunlight-readable display. The watch is packed with premium smartwatch functionality, including built-in music storage, Garmin Pay for contactless payments, smart notifications, daily activity tracking, as well as wrist-based heart rate and a wrist-based Pulse Ox sensor. Compatible with Garmin’s QuickFit watch band solution, it’s quick and easy to change between different straps and bracelets.

“For over a decade, we’ve built products to enhance the golfing experience – from GPS watches to swing sensors, club tracking systems and rangefinders – and we’re excited to add MARQ Golfer to give players yet another tool to play their best game,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin vice president of global consumer sales. “As the only modern tool watch on the market with smart features and advanced golf game tracking data, MARQ Golfer is a timepiece that sets the standard in style and function both on and off the course.”

In addition to the beautifully crafted design and comfortable fit on the wrist, MARQ Golfer shines in its precise ability to help strategise and fine tune a golfer’s game. With full-colour CourseView mapping right on the wrist, it’s easy to quickly determine distances to the front, middle and back of the green. The watch uses the PlaysLike Distance option to adjust yardages to compensate for uphill and downhill shots, and with Hazard View golfers can quickly scroll through each hazard on the map to acquire critical distance information and know exactly what to avoid during play. Additionally, MARQ Golfer utilises an Autoshot round analyser to measure and record detected shot distances. Included in the box, MARQ Golfer comes with three Approach CT10 club tracking sensors for advanced tracking capabilities, including locations, distances and club type.

Featuring an internal, rechargeable lithium battery, MARQ Golfer provides up to 12 days of battery life in smartwatch mode and up to three rounds of golf on one charge. MARQ Golfer has a suggested retail price of €1895 and to find out more or view the entire MARQ collection, visit www.garmin.com/marq.
