The Garmin quatix 5 multisport GPS marine watch is specifically designed to participate in water activities. The Garmin quatix 5 comes preloaded with apps for marine activities, such as boating, fishing, etc. The Garmin quatix 5 will connect with compatible Garmin chartplotters and other devices to stream data to your wrist and the screen of the quatix 5 marine GPS watch. Data you can stream includes; speed, depth, temperature and wind. The quatix 5 also supports advanced fitness features and includes a built-in wrist-based heart rate monitor.

Pairing the Garmin quatix 5 with your compatible Garmin chartplotter

You can pair the Garmin quatix 5 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 marine GPS smartwatch. When paired with your boat's compatible Garmin chartplotter the Garmin quatix 5 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. The Garmin quatix 5 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 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 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 uses this data to indicate whether your boat will cross the start line before, after, or at the correct time to start the race.

The unit's rechargeable lithium battery provides up to 14 days of battery life in smart mode, 24 hours in GPS mode with wrist-based heart rate with music and up to 60 hours in UltraTrac mode.

To connect to other devices e.g. smartphone and optional Garmin quatix 5 accessories, the quatix 5 features built-in ANT+ and Bluetooth connectivity.

The Garmin quatix 5 is waterproof to 10 ATM (100 metres). It is therefore intended for surface swimming only. Scuba diving may damage the quatix 5 and will void the warranty.
