Garmin MARQ Adventurer review: the ultimate explorer's watch?

The Garmin MARQ sits at the top of the Garmin's watches - one big difference to the Fenix is that the MARQ has metal body, rather than polycarbonate. (image credit: The Gear Loop)
Premium materials are what the MARQ is all about. It's designed for endurance, but also looks great - especially that domed display surface. It has a 46mm face. (image credit: The Gear Loop)
It uses Garmin's standard 22mm QuickFit straps, meaning you can swap based on your acitvity. The leather wears well, but takes a few weeks to soften. (image credit: The Gear Loop)
The MARQ offers everything you get from other Garmin watches - GPS, heart rate, location - with an orienteering function that works with the compass bezel. (image credit: Garmin)
The battery will last for around 12 days, or 24 hours of straight GPS tracking. There's also smartwatch features, like Garmin Pay and support for music. (image credit: The Gear Loop)
The domed sapphire crystal lens material has been treated to withstand scratches and the watch itself comes with a 10ATM depth rating. (image credit: Garmin)
The Garmin MARQ Adventurer is a luxurious and feature packed watch, a cut above the Fenix in terms of build materials - but it's also a lot more expensive. (image credit: The Gear Loop)
