Garmin Titanium Collection Page

Garmin is a technology company founded in 1989 by Gary Burrell and Min H. Kao in Lenexa, Kansas. Garmin, originally named "ProNav", released their first product, a $2,500 GPS unit, to their first customer, the U.S. Army in 1991. With that said, below is some information on Garmin Titanium watches, a collection of smartwatches from Garmin that might just convert the traditional watch purist to the dark side.

About Garmin Titanium Collection

The Garmin Titanium Collection is a collection of watches for those looking to use their smartwatch as a tool. The line offers many variants of smartwatches, including smartwatches specific to athletes, golfers, pilots, and divers.
While many of these watches can fill multiple roles for an average wearer with basic smartwatch functionality like notifications, etc., some of the more tool-specific wearables like the Garmin Descent Mk2i Titanium or the Garmin MarQ Aviator offer many features that will be specific to divers and pilots and those looking to utilize their wearables as tools.
This is what makes the Garmin Titanium Collection so intriguing to watch enthusiasts.
By most accounts, there are two types of people: smartwatch wearers and traditional watch wearers. While both utilize their respective watches for one reason or another, the Garmin Titanium Collection consists of smartwatches that can cater to not only the tech-savvy smartwatch wearer but also the traditionalist who sees the value in a true tool watch.

Garmin Titanium Collection History

As mentioned above, the first Garmin smartwatch was released in 2003. Since then, the world has certainly changed, and so has smartwatch functionality and popularity.
But through the changes, growth, and development of the smartwatch industry, Garmin has always been one of the leaders by combining beautiful designs with high quality and superior reliability to offer the wearer a great product within the Garmin Ecosystem.
In 2018, Garmin released its first professional dive watch, the Descent Mk1, a precursor to the release of the MarQ collection in 2019.
The MarQ Collection, which is home to many of the smartwatches in the Titanium Collection, is what Garmin refers to as their flagship range of modern tool watches.

How Much Do Garmin Titanium Watches Cost?

The Garmin Titanium Collection is part of Garmin's flagship range, which means that the prices will vary but will generally cost more than the more basic Garmin smartwatches. With that said, the brand offers incredible craftsmanship and reliability for the price.

Model Starting Price Unique Features
Garmin Descent Mk2i Titanium Carbon Gray DLC with Black Band $1,499 True tool watch with professional dive computer
Garmin 010-02648-10 MARQ Captain (Gen 2) $2,200 Offers typical smartwatch features, health and wellness tracking, and many tools specific to sailing.
Garmin 010-02648-00 MARQ Aviator (Gen 2) $2,400 Modern pilot watch that offers flight logging and weather reports

What's Unique About Garmin Titanium Watches?

The Garmin Titanium Collection is unique in its specific feature set depending on what watch you purchase. Each watch serves a specific purpose, and unlike the plethora of smartwatches on the market today, the Garmin Titanium Collection has proven itself to be a true modern tool watch that will make even the most hardcore traditional watch enthusiast take a second look.

Garmin Titanium Specs & Features

While an entire article can be written regarding the feature-packed specifications of the Garmin Titanium Collection, it's important to highlight some of the standout features, like Garmin's ability to create tough, sport/hobby-specific functionality to their timepieces, depending on the task at hand.
For example, the Garmin MARQ Aviator is a timepiece made for pilots and flying enthusiasts. It has capabilities that far surpass any pilot's watch of the past. With the Aviator, you have the ability to view weather reports, navigate to a specific waypoint, and even view airport information like runway orientation and lengths.
The Garmin Descent MK2i is a timepiece that is more of a dive computer than a watch. With the Descent, you have the ability to log your dives, utilize different dive modes depending on what kind of gas you are using, and track your entry and exit points with satellite connectivity.
While these are just a few of the Garmin Titanium Collections' many capabilities, it is evident that each Garmin watch is purpose-built for the needs of the wearer.

Garmin Titanium Watch Colors

The Garmin Titanium Collection is considered, first and foremost, a tool, something that an aviator, sailor, or diver would use to accomplish a task and stay alive. That said, the three Garmin timepieces listed above come in a carbon gray titanium and a brushed silver titanium. While each watch does incorporate a flash of color, mainly red and blue, the rest of the Garmin smartwatch catalog is filled with fun, bright, and unique colors.

Garmin Titanium Watch Materials

As expected with a collection referred to as the Titanium Collection, all Garmin Titanium watches are crafted with some varying degrees of titanium. While the MARQ Captain and Aviator have cases made of Grade 5 Titanium, the Descent has a polymer-reinforced case with a titanium bezel. All the timepieces come equipped with a domed sapphire crystal.
When it comes to strap/bracelet options, all are Quickfit Watch Band compatible. The Aviator and Captain have a strap width of 22mm, while the Descent has a strap width of 26mm. Many strap options are available, ranging from a hardened titanium bracelet to textile and silicone straps.

Garmin Titanium Sizes

The Garmin MARQ Captain and Aviator have a case diameter of 46mm and a case thickness of 15mm. While they are certainly large timepieces, both come equipped with a 30.4mm display with a resolution of 390 x 390 pixels.
The Garmin Descent Mk2i is a timepiece that is offered in two sizes. The first is a watch with a massive case diameter of 52mm and a case thickness of 17.8mm, and the other is a watch with a more subdued case diameter of 43mm and a case thickness of 14.15mm. It is worth noting that the smaller case does not come with a Diamond-Like Carbon (DLC) coated titanium bezel.
