Garmin, a name that goes hand in hand with running and one thing we can’t live without. Without a Garmin device runners and many athletes could not show off great running times, track the distances of their run or even plan a proper training! Initially Garmin began selling GPS technology to the U.S. Army, and with that success was then able to expand their product lines and create some of the technological marvels we now use every day. The company strives to create quality products for people and athletes of all levels who want to get more out of life.
Designed specifically for athletes Garmin uses the best technology to provide you with every important detail for any training regimen. Garmin sport watches measure performance, track activities and help monitor progress of your individual goals.
