Introducing the Really Smart Watch

In celebration of its 30th anniversary, Garmin has released the MARQ Collection

– a series of connected tool watches of traditional watch manufacturing

quality. The five models are named Aviator, Driver, Captain, Expedition,

and Athlete. They have special designs and features for people with a passion

for flying, racing, sailing, exploring, and sports performance.

The MARQ smartwatches with their titanium cases were designed with attention

to quality to help guarantee performance in demanding environments. They feature

an always-on, sunlight-readable display, performance GPS, and advanced sensors like

wrist-based heart rate and wrist-based Pulse Ox to track a wide variety of sport activities

like running, cycling, swimming, and skiing. It also provides premium smartwatch

functionality including built-in music storage, Garmin Pay, smart notifications, and advanced

activity tracking. The battery life ranges from 12 days in smartwatch mode to 28 hours in GPS

mode and up to 48 hours in UltraTrac mode. Prices range from €1,500 to €2,500.


Getting Stronger and Stronger

Swiss start-up MyoSwiss – a spin-off

from ETH Zurich – is close to finishing

the development of the MyoSuit: a

wearable robotic garment suit that

combines robotic and functional

textiles. When people have difficulties

moving due to genetic disorders,

neurological conditions, injury, or

just aging, the lack of movement can

further increase their impairment –

leading to even less movement. The

MyoSuit is intended to address this.

It can be used as a training device

in rehabilitation clinics and physiotherapy

studios to train people with

mobility impairment undergoing gaitendurance

and strength training. The

lightweight device provides strength

and stability like an extra layer of

muscle. The company is currently testing

prototypes with patients in clinics

in Switzerland and France. The final

product is expected to be launched in

the second half of 2019.
