The next-generation Quatix 5 marine GPS smartwatch that’s specifically designed for life on the water. More than a watch, the quatix 5 provides comprehensive boat connectivity with compatible Garmin chartplotters and other marine electronics to offer autopilot control, remote multifunction display (MFD) waypoint marking, data streaming – including speed, depth, temperature and wind – sail racing assistance, and much more. In addition to preloaded marine-specific feature sets, the quatix 5 also includes a host of built-in activity profiles for land and water sports like running, hiking, biking, swimming, rowing, and paddle boarding to name a few.
With an extended battery life, daily activity tracking, smart notifications (requires a compatible smartphone), and Garmin Elevate wrist heart rate technology, the quatix 5 can be worn 24/7 and easily transitions from water to land. Built to withstand the harsh marine environment, the quatix 5 measures at 47mm and features a rugged yet sleek design with a stainless steel bezel, buttons and rear case that’s more compact than previous models. Thanks to the new QuickFit bands available in metal, leather or silicone, users can interchange their watchband in seconds and without tools.
From fishermen chasing billfish or bass to canoeists, kayakers and big sail and power boaters, the quatix 5 was designed for life on the water. It combines feature and design qualities from our popular fenix® 5 multisport watch series with boating, fishing, cruising and sailing capabilities to deliver the most sophisticated and connected general-purpose marine smartwatch on the market today.
When paired with on-board Garmin electronics, the quatix 5 can stream NMEA® 2000 boat data to give users access to important sensor information like speed, depth, temperature, wind data and more – right from their wrist, no matter where they’re at on the boat. What’s more, when the quatix 5 is paired with a GHC 20 autopilot control unit, it can be used to control the autopilot to change heading, engage heading hold, steer to an active GPS route, and initiate patterns so that users can maintain control of the vessel, even if they’re not the one at the helm.
The quatix 5 also makes it easier than ever to mark and save a waypoint from anywhere on the boat – with the touch of a button, the quatix 5 can be used to remotely mark a waypoint on a connected chartplotter(s). And, users can also use the quatix 5 to control their on-board.
The quatix 5 is available in two versions: the quatix 5 and the quatix 5 Sapphire. The quatix 5 Sapphire has a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal lens and includes a stainless steel band as well as a blue silicone QuickFit band. It’s also Wi-Fi® enabled so users can connect their watch to their home network for automatic uploads to Garmin Connect™ when within range. The non-sapphire quatix 5 comes with a blue silicone QuickFit band.
