Is Garmin Losing the PR Battle?

  GRMN is now paying a 5%+ dividend, has no debt, and has an amazing array of sports devices. So, why does Fitbit get all the notice?

GMRN's Approach line of golf watches is incredible, with more than 30,000 golf courses mapped.

I'm a lap swimmer, and have their swim watch, which I love.

True, GRMN is feeling pressure on the automotive GPS side. But, I still prefer my NUVI, which doesn't chew up data dollars, as my smartphone would. And GRMN just closed with Honda on in-dash GPS.

Also, anyone who has flown in a private plane equipped with GRMN avionics, as I have in a friend's Bonanza, has got to be impressed. 

I think that GRMN is losing a PR battle with the likes of Fitbit. GRMN's product line deserves better notice, IMO.
