Garmin is a solid company that has always had a clear vision: to become the world leader in the smartwatch market, offering products trusted for their design, high quality and superior value. Their mission is "Made to last" thanks to the constant research, innovation and reliability.
Garmin employs several thousand people in offices all around the world. But how did the short history of this very important brand develop? Let's discover a little bit moreabout them.
- In 1893 the company was founded for the first time by Gary Burrell and Min H. Kao, who named it Garmin in honor of his names. The company's first ever product was a GPS unit.
- From 1995 on, the company has continued to increase its turnover exponentially year after year. Today, the company invoices a few billion USD a year.
Garmin operates for the most part in the United Kingdom, USA, Taiwan, Canada, Norway and Spain, but has connected offices in most countries of the world, including in Italy. Here we find the branch of Garmin which follows the distribution and assistance of products.
In all of its locations, product development goes through several stages, from an initial concept to mass production of ready-to-sell units. The "vertical integration" business model keeps design, manufacturing, marketing and warehousing processes in place, allowing the brand to maintain a high quality level and responding quickly to the market demand.
Garmin developed several softwares to be compatible with the various interfacing platforms, some of these are "Garmin Connect", an App (compatible with Android devices, Apple iOS, Windows Phone), which allows you to communicate and synchronize the Sportwatch / Smathwatch with your Smartphone.
