The company is headquartered in Schaffhausen, Switzerland, and today has over 11,000 employees in 50 subsidiaries worldwide. Garmin is characterized by a constant diversification, thanks to which areas such as Fitness & Health Tracker, Smartwatches, Golf and Running Watches have been successfully established. In the DACH region Garmin is represented with offices in Garching near Munich (D), Graz (A) and Schaffhausen (CH).
The company also maintains its own research and development site in Würzburg (Germany).
