Join us for the first tech night of the spring at Truckee Philosophy, an evening of learning, practice and fun!

Smartwatches are incredible pieces of wearable technology, tools that can take your training and performance to the next level, map a trail or route, and even help you discover whether or not your are getting a good nights sleep.

They can do a lot, it’s overwhelming! That’s why you should join us for this event at Truckee Philosophy, to learn how all these features can help you on and off the trail.

This night is all about learning how to your Garmin smartwatch to it’s fullest potential. Maybe you have a Garmin watch but don’t know all the different features work? Or maybe you are considering purchasing one soon? Either way, this event is for you.

Runners! Check out the new Garmin Forerunner series of GPS smartwatches with bluetooth technology and multisport settings. You can even store and listen to your music right from your watch.

There will be a lot to learn at this event! This is your chance to learn the ins and outs of your watch and have a Garmin expert answer any questions you might have. Here’s a peak at what the night will cover…

  • How to create courses with the various Garmin Apps

  • Instruction on the most efficient setup of your Garmin device
  • How Garmin’s satellite communication devices like the InReach Mini and Explorer work

They will walk you through the basics of their program, go through the process of planning a route, show trip planning features and explain how to integrate with Garmin and other devices once you are out on the trail.

Attendees can bring their laptops and/or devices to follow along and each speaker will stick around afterwards to answer specific questions.

All Garmin products will be on a special event deal this night only. So if you are looking to invest in a new Garmin product, tonight is the night!
