OLATHE, Kan./February 9, 2022/Business Wire – Garmin® International Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd.

When truck drivers step out of the cab, they can benefit from purpose-built workouts specifically crafted on the watch to fit their daily routine on the job. What’s more, truckers can now look at their wrists to access member loyalty program information from select trucking plazas and conveniently pay on-the-go by using reward point balances directly from the watch. With a portfolio of trucking and driver wellness features, the Instinct 2 – dēzl Edition encourages a healthy over the-road lifestyle. Check it out here.
