Unlike other marine watches, quatix is the only watch available to encompass the most desirable marine features into one integrated device. Mariners can rely on quatix for multiple sets of marine data such as tidal information from the built in worldwide tide table, COG, SOG, and VMG, along with alerts for speed and anchor drag. Quatix is also equipped with ABC sensors (Altimeter, Barometer and Compass), providing mariners with real-time information regarding their environment. The built-in barometer can be used to predict weather changes, ensuring that the approaching storm conditions can be avoided. The 3-axis electronic compass provides the user's bearing, whether in motion or not. Share data wirelessly with other compatible Garmin marine products and apps.
The quatix watch combines advanced sail racing tools for unparalleled awareness and a competitive edge during a racing competition. Quatix can easily set up a virtual starting line between two GPS waypoints. It then combines the starting line with the built-in countdown timer to calculate both distances 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.
In addition to providing crucial marine data, quatix helps keep the user safe as well. With the integrated MOB feature, the watch can automatically trigger a MOB alarm on a Garmin chartplotter. This allows the captain to see when someone wearing the quatix has fallen overboard. If the vessel is equipped with a Garmin Autopilot, the chartplotter can then engage the autopilot and navigate back to the last known position.
