  • what features are unique to Garmin Express?

    I'm thinking about buying Gamin watch but I don't have Windows or Mac (can't easily run Garmin Express). I do have Android phone so Garmin Connect is an option.

    Can I update watch firmware using phone?Rufus MapQuest UpToDate

    Yes.

    WIFI network settings for some WIFI-enabled watches can be configured in Garmin Express only. I don't know which watch you're planning to get, but if it does not have WIFI or you're not planning to use it, then this is no issue for you.
    Nothing else comes to my mind.

    Transfering large amounts of data (like firmware updates or connect iq apps or very long activities) take significantly longer using the mobile app than when the watch is connected over USB to a computer with Garmin Express.
