Garmin in Manila by 1st Quarter 2010

Tuesday, 22 December 2009  |  Gear + Gadgets

Guess who’s coming to town by January 2010…Garmin!  A local company has just obtained exclusive distributorship of Garmin products—from car GPS devices to…you guessed right…running watches! Finally!

In 2007, before we saw a Garmin on every other runners’ wrist, I had to order my Garmin 305 online. And, only a few months back, I still had to order my Garmin 310XT through a friend. By 1st quarter of 2010, no need to pay shipping fees or beg a friend to hand carry the watch home, Garmin products will be readily available in Metro Manila.

For now, they are definitely bringing in the Garmin Forerunner 310XT and Garmin Forerunner 405.  I’m hoping they can bring in the Garmin Forerunner 305, too.  Hopefully, they can also have a service center to replace our dead batteries instead of us having to ship them out to Taiwan.

By the 1st Quarter of 2010, the Garmin showroom will be open to the public.  For now, they can accept orders for the watches.  If you are interested, just comment below and I’ll make sure to forward your email.
