Pairing the Garmin quatix 5 Sapphire with your compatible Garmin chartplotter

You can pair the Garmin quatix 5 Sapphire marine watch with a compatible Garmin chartplotter on your boat and wirelessly view NMEA 2000 data including wind speed, direction and water depth. There is also a Garmin autopilot feature that allows you to move about the boat and receive information on your wrist, via the screen of the quatix 5 Sapphire marine GPS smartwatch. When paired with your boat's compatible Garmin chartplotter the Garmin quatix 5 Sapphire can be used to:

Stream boat data - you can stream data fields from your compatible Garmin chartplotter to the screen of your Garmin quatix 5 Sapphire. The Garmin quatix 5 Sapphire displays up to three data fields per page, and up to four pages of data.

Marking a waypoint on your chartplotter - you can mark a waypoint on your compatible Garmin chartplotter using your Garmin quatix 5 Sapphire smartwatch.

Autopilot - pairing with an Autopilot.

Tack Assist - while cruising or racing into the wind, the tack assist feature can help you determine if your boat is being lifted or headed. When you calibrate tack assist, the device captures your boat's port and starboard course over ground (COG) measurements, and uses the COG data to calculate the mean true wind direction and the boat's tack angle.

Sail Racing - you can use the Garmin quatix 5 Sapphire to increase the likelihood that your boat will cross the start line of a race exactly when the race begins. When you synchronise the race timer with the official race countdown timer, you are alerted at one-minute intervals as the race start approaches. The quatix 5 Sapphire uses this data to indicate whether your boat will cross the start line before, after, or at the correct time to start the race.

You can use the FUSION-Link app on your quatix 5 Sapphire smartwatch to control the audio playback on your FUSION device.

The unit's rechargeable lithium battery provides up to 14 days of battery life in smart mode, 24 hours in GPS/Heart Rate mode with music and up to 60 hours in UltraTrac mode.
