May 2019: New Garmin Devices Released…

A number of new Garmin devices have been released, these are:

  • Garmin MARQ (Driver, Athlete, Expedition, Captain and Aviator) prices range from £1,399 up to £2,249
  • Garmin Forerunner 945 price starts at £519
  • Edge 830 price starts at £349
  • Edge 530 price starts at £259

All of these new models support mapping and will work with my FREE and TT 1:50K Look n Feel maps (if you have a MicroSD card or sufficient available internal storage).

All of these new models have new functionality over there predecessors.

The new MARQ watches all have 32GB of internal storage (double that of the Fenix 5x and Plus models). They also have some new features and use the Sony GPS chip (as found in devices from Polar, Suunto, etc.) rather than the one found in the Fenix models. This means that the battery life should be better.

The Forerunner 945 has 16GB of internal storage (same as the Fenix 5x or Plus models) and appears to be a hybrid of the MARQ and Fenix 5 Plus models, in a plastic/resin case with a Gorrila glass face. It also uses Sony GPS chip (as found in devices from Polar, Suunto, etc.) rather than the one found in the older models. This means that the battery life should be better.

The Edge 830 has 16GB of internal storage (same as the Edge 820).

The Edge 530 has 16GB of internal storage, as does the Edge 520 Plus (with about 9GB free for a UK/European model).

You can find more details on each of these via the Garmin site via the links in the text above.
