The Galaxy is ready for the taking when you wear a Garmin Legacy Series . The Sith-inspired watch has a 45mm case, a leather and black silicon band, a slate bezel, and red and black design elements that include Vader’s TIE fighter.
While you work on your galaxy takeover strategy, the Darth Vader smartwatch will support you with fitness and wellness-tracking tools, smart notifications, music storage, and the Garmin Pay contactless payment system.
The watch’s fiber-reinforced polymer case has a polymer rear cover and a stainless steel bezel. The 1.3-inch diameter lens is Corning Gorilla Glass 3, so it should take a beating while you travel the galaxy in search of errant Jedi, princesses, rebels, and various miscreants.
