Garmin Southern Africa, the global leader in GPS lifestyle technology, is proud to announce their partnership with the Old Mutual Two Oceans Marathon, for the third year running. As the Official Technical Product Sponsor, Garmin further demonstrates their commitment to the running market.

“Garmin are excited to be part of this event for the third year and to showcase the very latest in running technology while interacting with all the entrants attending the event. Our ’Forerunner For Runner’ range caters for every type of runner from teammate, mentor to expert and we are proud to be backed by some of South Africa’s top runners in the field,” said Jenna Chisnall, Marcomms Manager of Garmin Sub Saharan Africa.

From simple-to-use running watches that tell you how far, how fast and where you run, to advanced training aids that will guide and motivate you through detailed training plans, whatever your level, whatever your goal, there is a Forerunner for you. With sleek designs, built in GPS, long battery life and various running metrics you are able to select which watch is best for your level of running.

Watches include wrist based heart rate monitoring, and can be paired with premium Garmin heart rate monitors for more accurate data. Advanced features work around your goals and suggest new ones. Some watches have music controls and connected features to make your training sessions that much more enjoyable, encouraging you to #BeatYesterday and achieve your personal best. Once you finish your activity you can monitor and share your progress on Garmin Connect™, Garmin’s online training tool, to help you better yesterday’s goals.

Garmin will be offering all runners sales and technical support for their running devices, in addition to showcasing the latest 2018 Forerunner product range. The Old Mutual Two Oceans Marathon Expo is an opportunity for all sport enthusiasts and entrants to visit the Garmin stand and experience the latest technology available in running and be part of the exciting atmosphere leading up to the race.
