Garmin is one of the largest manufacturers of GPS devices and in recent years has focused on making extremely accurate smartwatches, sports watches and activity trackers. In addition to the impressive performance of Garmin smartwatches, they also look great. Whether you just want to keep in shape, are a fanatical golfer or a professional military officer. There is a suitable Garmin smartwatch for everyone! Choose your style:
The biggest differences between Garmin sports watches and smartwatches are that a sports watch is sturdier and more often waterproof, plus it has physical buttons. In this way, this type of watch can be better operated while walking, cycling or running. This, in combination with functionalities such as a built-in distance and heart rate monitor, ensures that Garmin is very popular among both male and female athletes.
Before you buy a Garmin watch, think carefully about which functions suit your (exercise) goals. With the filters on our site you can search for the models that contain exactly the functionalities you need.
Which is the best Garmin smartwatch for you depends on the style of watch you are looking for. Do you want a watch that you can wear all day, both at the office and in the gym? Or are you looking for a sturdy watch that you mainly use during sporting activities?
A number of functionalities are standard on all Garmin smartwatches, such as measuring your sleep rhythm or counting calories. All Garmin sports watches also have a GPS function, with which your location can be tracked during a workout. You can see this afterwards in your Garmin Connect app.
The biggest difference between Garmin smartwatches is in the functionalities for different sports, activities and target groups. For example, some models have an integrated heart rate monitor and an external heart rate monitor can be connected to other models. Sports functions may also differ per model. For example, the Garmin Fenix and Forerunner can measure swimming, cycling and running performance. The Vivoactive recognizes activities itself - ideal when you participate in a triathlon. And the Marq Golfer has been specially developed for - you guessed it - golfers.
All Garmin smartwatches are compatible with both iOS and Android. iOS is the operating system of the Apple iPhone and Android is Google's operating system you will find on smartphones from among others, Samsung, Lenovo, Motorola and Google Pixel.
If you want to be sure that your Garmin smartwatch is compatible with your (version) phone, always check the specifications of the watch before ordering.
Most Garmin men's smartwatches have a size of 40 up to over 50 mm in diameter. In addition to tough and sporty smartwatches such as the Instinct and Tactix series, Garmin also has stylish smartwatches for men in its collection. For example, the Epix smartwatches with a wide choice of colours and rubber or leather straps.
Garmin women's smartwatches generally have a smaller size (up to 40 mm) and contain functions specially developed for women, such as tracking your menstrual cycle or pregnancy. The small Garmin Lily smartwatch, for example, looks like an ordinary watch but is designed for and by women and contains many smart functions under the traditional appearance. The Venu and Vivo series also contain different models in fashionable colours and with easily adjustable, comfortable straps aimed at women.
