Garmin is the official watch of the Movistar Madrid Half Marathon 2023

On March 26th, Garmin is going to be for the second consecutive year the "official watch” with the most advanced running technology of one of the most popular sports events in Spain: the Movistar Madrid Half Marathon and the ProFuturo charity race (5km).

More than 15.000 runners will run along some of the best locations in the streets of Madrid, and will be able to enjoy a real tour of the capital, passing through the most emblematic areas: Nuevos Ministerios, Plaza de Castilla, Serrano, Retiro Park and Atocha Station, with the finish line in the Paseo de Recoletos.


Garmin suports all participants

Garmin has been committed for years to supporting all runners by developing a line of watches specially created for this discipline. That is why it will have its own space at the Runner's Expo: an event that takes place the days before the race and in which the brand shows the public its main innovations in the world of running. This is the perfect opportunity for runners and participants to pick up their race bibs and receive the technical advice they require from members of the Garmin team before the race.

Garmin's Forerunner® range of running smartwatches offers advanced performance features and will be a great help for training ahead of the Movistar Madrid Half Marathon. The newest addition to the range, the Forerunner® 265, includes performance monitoring tools such as Garmin's Firstbeat Analytics™ including VO2 max, performance condition, training effect and more. When training outdoors, athletes can plan their race day strategy using PacePro™ (pace guidance adjusted for selected courses or distances) and run with confidence knowing that SatIQ™ technology and multi-band GPS will provide superior positioning accuracy in even the most challenging environments. In addition, these watches are designed to track overall wellness 24/7 with the Pulse Ox wrist-based sensor[1], Body Battery™ energy monitoring, advanced sleep monitoring and sleep scoring, stress tracking, and menstrual cycle and pregnancy tracking, among other features.

In addition, the Garmin Coach feature will allow users to send an adaptive training plan to a compatible Garmin watch. With Garmin Coach, they will be able to choose their expert running coach and their running goal (which in this case would be a half marathon). They will then receive guidance with a no-cost training plan that includes selected dynamic exercises that are synced to the watch and adjusted to become harder or easier based on the athlete's performance on the plan.

Available in two sizes: the 42mm Forerunner® 265S offers up to 24 hours of battery life in GPS mode and up to 15 days in smartwatch mode, while the 46mm Forerunner 265 offers up to 20 hours of battery life in GPS mode and up to 13 days in smartwatch mode. This makes it the perfect partner for preparing for the Movistar Madrid Half Marathon.

Designed indoors for life outdoors, Garmin products have revolutionised the lives of runners, cyclists, swimmers and athletes of all levels and abilities. Committed to developing technology that helps people stay active and elevate their performance, Garmin believes that every day is an opportunity to innovate and to surpass yesterday.
