Garmin® announces professional cycling team sponsorships, equips world champion cyclists with top-of-the-line products

Garmin International Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), today
announced sponsorship of 11 professional cycling teams for 2019,
including world tour and mountain/enduro biking teams. The teams, which
include several world champion cyclists, will be equipped with Garmin
products that will inform, guide and motivate riders while helping to
provide a safer riding environment.

Garmin welcomes Team Sky and Rally UHC Cycling, and is proud to continue
sponsorship of EF Education First Pro Cycling, Mitchelton-SCOTT,
Movistar Team, Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka and Trek-Segafredo this
year. Even further, Garmin will continue its support of the CLIF Pro
Team, CUBE Action Team, Scott-SRAM and Trek Factory Racing mountain
biking teams.

“These teams are full of talented athletes, including some world
champion cyclists, and we are excited to get our innovative products
onto their bikes to help with training, racing and adventure,” said
Susan Lyman, Garmin vice president of global consumer marketing. “Garmin
has been a dedicated sponsor of professional cycling teams for more than
a decade and we are proud to continue our commitment to the sport by
providing the teams with GPS bike computers, cycling awareness
accessories and multisport GPS watches.”

The sponsored teams will be equipped with an array of Garmin products to
help increase performance while also seeking to provide a safer cycling
environment. Edge® cycling computers, including the Edge 130,
Edge 520 Plus and Edge 1030, will provide data and key metrics to
cyclists, as well as GPS and navigational support. The teams will also
be riding with the Varia™ RTL510 Rearview Radar in training which will
warn of vehicles approaching from behind, while a tail light brightens
and flashes to alert drivers of a cyclist ahead. Additionally, many of
the sponsored teams will use multisport GPS smartwatches, including the
Forerunner® 935 and fēnix® 5 Plus, to monitor the
distance they travel, the calories they burn and how much quality sleep
they get every night. The teams will also benefit from the Index™ smart
scale that measures weight, body fat, skeletal muscle mass and more.
