Designed for avid mariners of all types, from yachtsmen and power boaters to dinghy racers and kayakers, quatix provides unrivaled performance and awareness in a rugged marine watch. Whether you're onboard on a high performance race boat or simply cruising along on a day sail, the quatix does it all. It's the only GPS-enabled device in existence to provide this incredible range of marine navigation features including automatic MOB detection¹, remote control of Garmin equipment, and the streaming of real time data such as wind and depth info to your watch.
Specialised Sailing Features
The quatix combines advanced sail racing tools to give you that competitive edge during a regatta or to gauge your performance while training. quatix can easily set up a virtual starting line between 2 GPS waypoints. It then combines the starting line with the built-in countdown timer to calculate both distance to the line as well as desired speed and burn time available, which enables the vessel to cross the line at maximum speed at the exact starting time. Once the race has begun, the watch then switches to Tack Assist mode and indicates whether the vessel is getting headed or lifted based on the optimal tack angle provided and makes for a more efficient and controlled sailing experience.

The built-in barometric altimeter provides accurate elevation information to keep track of ascent and descent.
The built-in barometer helps you monitor and predict weather changes by showing you short-term changes in the barometric air pressure. If the barometric pressure begins a steady decline, this could be a warning of an impending storm.
Tide tables provide the same accurate tide data built into our chartplotters. Tables cover more than 3,400 locations to help make sure you get to the right place at the right time.
The 3-axis electronic compass keeps your bearing whether you're moving or not. Sight a bearing and be confident quatix will keep you headed toward your goal.

Built-in Countdown Timer
Calculates both distance to the line as well as desired speed and burn time available.
Tack Assist Mode
Shows whether vessel is getting headed or lifted based on the optimal tack angle provided.
The built-in temperature sensor keeps track of how rapidly the temperature is rising or falling, helping you determine clothing and shelter needs or whether it might be time to put the boat into land.
Easily share tracks, waypoints and routes wirelessly with other compatible Garmin GPS devices and smartphones. quatix is equipped with both ANT® capabilities and Bluetooth® technology. You can also pair quatix with external devices, such as our external temperature sensor, heart rate monitor and speed/cadence bike sensor if you want to use it for physical fitness activities.
