Shares of Garmin (NASDAQ: GRMN) rose about 8% during pre-market trading on Wednesday after the wearable tech firm reported yet another market-beating quarterly results for Q4 and provided upbeat outlook for FY20.

Garmin’s adjusted EPS grew 26% to $1.29 in the fourth quarter of 2019 exceeding the Street’s view of $1.04. Revenue increased 18% to $1.10 billion compared to the analysts’ target of $1.01 billion.

GAAP profit increased to $1.89 per share from a profit of $1.00 per share in the prior-year quarter. Except Auto, all the other segments registered revenue growth in the three months ended December 28, 2019 period. The introduction of new products in the fourth quarter benefited the company resulting in solid revenue growth across all the segments.

Revenue of Fitness, Aviation, Marine, and Outdoor segments grew 34%, 22%, 22% and 16%, respectively. Auto segment revenue declined 15% due to the ongoing PND market contraction and lower year-over-year OEM sales.

For fiscal 2020, Garmin expects adjusted EPS of $4.60 on revenue of about $4 billion. Wall Street had expected the company to forecast earnings of $4.34 per share and revenue of $3.84 billion.
