Garmin ‘MARQ Expedition’ Silicone Strap Is 22mm ‘Quick Fit’, BUT Is Different To Others.

The Garmin MARQ Expedition comes standard with a $199 Italian Vacchetta leather strap. It is very nice. Too nice, in my opinion, for everyday use, especially if you, like I, are in the habit of taking showers with your Garmin still on your wrist.

Luckily, Garmin includes, for ‘FREE’, an extra black silicone rubber watch strap. It is, in theory, a 22mm Quick Fit like those for a Garmin Fenix 5.

But, the strap is very different; everything about it is different. It has a raised shoulder and a bigger clasp. There is no gap between it and the watch. I like it.

My problem — I can’t find ANY other bands like it, even in black.

I have 5 Fenix 5 bands in different colors. They fit on the MARQ. But, they look different to the black band.

So, just a heads up.

    Hi, I have the same issue, looking for the a replacement for the extra sillicon Marq Expedition strap included in the box, but till now I don’t find one, even at Garmin the replacement strap looks different than the Free sillicon strap which I prefer more.

    Quick question, does the MARQ shouldered strap fit on the Fenix?
