Which Garmin Watch is the Best Option for Me?

Famous for their innovative design and advanced technology, Garmin Smart Watches effortlessly combine both luxury and practicality to create their unique watches. If you’re wondering which Garmin watch is right for you, then you’ve come to the right place.

Here at Banks Lyon, we stock some of the most sought-after watches that Garmin have to offer. We want to provide you with a piece that fits as well on your wrist as it does with your personality. So, whether you’re looking for an accurate fitness tracker or something slick to complement your new suit, Garmin has a watch for every occasion, and we have them stocked and ready.

To make the process even easier, our team of experts have compiled a list of our favourite pieces from some of Garmin’s collections so you can relax knowing you’re in safe hands.

Which Is the Best Garmin Watch for Swimming?

Whilst most Garmin Smart Watches are water-resistant, your watch must be equipped with the best technology if you plan on using it underwater. We have found that the best piece for swimming, snorkelling and other water sports is the Garmin Fenix 7X Sapphire Solar Edition 51mm Watch. This timepiece is a rugged multisport GPS watch equipped with a scratch-resistant Power Sapphire solar charging lens for extended battery life and multiple advanced training features, such as sports apps and health monitoring sensors. It is suitable for tracking swimming, as it has a built-in pool swim activity profile, wrist-based heart rate tracking that also works underwater, and water resistance up to 10 ATM.

Which Is the Best Garmin Watch for Cycling?

If you spend most of your time on two wheels, you must have a watch that complements this lifestyle, and we have found that the Garmin Epix Pro (Gen 2) – Sapphire Edition 42mm is one of the best options.

This durable multisport GPS smartwatch features an AMOLED display with a scratch-resistant sapphire lens, advanced training features, and highly reliable health and wellness monitoring. It shines in tracking cycling due to its GPS-based pace guidance feature, real-time stamina tracking to manage effort, built-in cycling activity profile, and advanced training metrics such as VO2 max, which are invaluable for cyclists looking to improve their performance.

Which Is the Best Garmin Watch for Fitness Tracking?

Garmin smartwatches can help you track many sports, but which is the best for fitness tracking? If you are working on your fitness and need a partner to time you, track your routes, and plan workouts, the Garmin MARQ Athlete (Gen 2) Carbon Edition SmartWatch may be the watch for you. This is an advanced, ultra-durable fitness tool featuring a stunning AMOLED touchscreen, traditional button controls, and an extensive range of preloaded activity profiles for numerous sports. Being excellent for fitness tracking, it provides an Endurance Score for measuring sustained effort, wrist-based heart rate monitoring even while swimming, sleep scoring, and an energy monitor, all of which provide insights to help improve your performance and guide your training schedule.

Which Is the Best Garmin Watch for Formal Events?

Combining a luxurious design with the smartwatch features you need, Garmin watches are some of the best that do both. If you are at a networking event and need to be on top of emails and texts, then these watches instantly deliver your notifications to its face when paired with your smartphone. Equally, WOW everyone around you with Garmin Pay by linking your cards to your watch for easy contactless payments! There are plenty of formal Garmin watches to choose from for him and her that embody sophistication and sleek style. For men, the Garmin Fenix 7X Sapphire Solar Edition 51mm Watch (below, left) is an excellent option thanks to its refined athletic design with premium materials. These include a stylish DLC or titanium bezel and Chestnut Leather band, coupled with an imposing large 1.4” solar-charged display nestled within a rugged, robust 51mm case, perfectly blending functionality with sophistication.

Alternatively, for women, we suggest the Garmin Epix Pro (Gen 2) – Sapphire Edition 42mm (below, right). This timepiece is an excellent choice for ladies’ formal wear with its sleek and resilient athletic design, a radiant 12” AMOLED display, a scratch-resistant sapphire lens, and an elegantly thin and lightweight fibre-reinforced polymer case combined with a soft gold and light sand band, exuding an opulent yet minimalistic style suitable for any formal occasion.
