Garmin's Quatix GPS Watch

Bookmark and Share

The Quatix GPS watch is waterproof to 50 meters and puts an incredible amount of information right on your wrist, including everything from course over ground (COG) and velocity made good (VMG) data to an anchor-dragging alarm. The Quatix also has an altimeter, barometer and compass to help you get a better fix on what the weather is up to. For racers there is a virtual start-line function with a built-in countdown timer that calculates both distance to the line and available burn time, while an integrated MOB feature automatically triggers an alarm on a Garmin chartplotter. The watch can even be integrated with a Garmin autopilot and some types of navigation software. Incredible! Oh, it also tells the time. $449. Garmin International
