Garmin is for people who love and live life.  Garmin is for people on the move: travelling the world, having more fun in the Philippines, trail walking, mountain climbing, running, swimming, biking, doing triathlons and simply living their lives to the fullest.  Garmin takes you places and is one of the first items which seasoned travelers and athletes pack in their bags.  I know coz I pack my Garmin for wherever I go, whether it be Davao or Tuscany.  

What adventures will your Garmin take you?
