Founded in 1989 Garmin, then ProNav, made a GPS unit that retailed for almost $3,000. In 1991 the United States Army became their first major customer. Speed up a few years and now Garmin is a leader in wearable GPS technology giving athletes everywhere the information they need to train more efficiently.
With Garmin GPS watches, an athlete can track where they are, how fast they're going, and track their heart rate. From the basic utility models like the reliable Forerunner 35 all the way to the futuristic Fenix 5, athletes of all skill can track their progress.
