Product Description

Designed for avid mariners of all types, from dinghy racers and kayakers to big sail and power boaters, quatix is a high-sensitivity GPS navigator marine watch. It's the only GPS-enabled device that provides an incredible range of marine navigation features including automatic MOB detection, remote control of Garmin equipment, and streaming NMEA 2000 data to a navigating marine watch. A highly accurate watch, it also includes sailing features never before combined into 1 watch, such as race countdown timer, virtual starting line, tack assist and tidal information. It's also equipped with an automatically calibrating altimeter and barometer, a 3-axis compass, temperature sensor and tide information. Plus, it shares data wirelessly with other compatible Garmin apps. Stream NMEA 2000 Data to Your Wrist When paired with a Garmin GNT 10 NMEA Transceiver (sold separately), you can wirelessly stream and view NMEA 2000 data, such as wind speed and direction, water depth, and more right on your wrist.¹ Specialized Sailing Features The quatix 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 2 GPS waypoints. It then combines the starting line with the built-in countdown timer to calculate both distance 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. Autopilot Remote Control Functions This amazing watch also features built-in remote capabilities. It allows you to control a Garmin autopilot so you can move around on the boat while having information and control on your wrist.

4.0 out of 5 stars Almost Great 22 May 2014
By Nicholas G. Grebe - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
As a competitive sailor on small boats that typically do not have their own instrumentation, this "watch" is a great all-in-one device. It is especially useful for training when the GPS data is coupled with video of the maneuvers.

It really is feature packed and obviously a lot of thought has gone into how to make a GPS useful for a sailor. Really what makes it so excellent is how much they were able to do in such a small package and do well. Plus it is extremely customizable and quite straightforward with a little help from the manual.

I did not give it five stars because it is kind of slow; often taking several minutes to "save" a track before it's ready to use again. In the short-course, multiple-race format I often participate in, this has lead to missing the timing of the start of the next sequence. There also seems to be a bit of a delay when starting the timer and marking things like the start line. Seems there are a few strange extra steps at times that takes concentration away from dealing with the boat.

Also it just stops recording the track if it drops the GPS satellite fix (or at least that's what I think is happening) and does not automatically try to reacquire and continue tracking.

I'm glad I bought it and I use it all the time.

1.0 out of 5 stars Bought thiswatch back in 2013 8 Jan. 2015

Bought this watch back in 2013... a year and a half later, despite being "Suitable for Surface swimming, shallow snorkeling and similar activities" it completely filled with water 3 minutes into bobbing in the water. Very disappointing as now it's completely ruined.

1.0 out of 5 stars AVOID! 7 Sept. 2015
By Danny - Published on Amazon.com
1.) When something is advertised as a "watch" you assume that time keeping utility, beyond the accuracy of human time-sense, is included. The Quatix race start timer function features timing accuracy that, believe it or not, grossly and randomly advances/lags to a child counting 1 potato, 2 potato, and for the purposes of a race start, is probably worse than 17th-century timepieces the size of a Marshall stack. I complained to Garmin about the race-start timing error that was random and frequently costing me up to two boat-lengths at the start line (a guaranteed race loss in F18 catamarans). After telling me directly "the unit is working as designed" and then hearing me complain more by call/email and argue, Garmin support (a jaded bunch), asked me to send them a video of the error. So I created a video CLEARLY showing the error varying from minor to major timing errors (for a laugh, if you already own a Quatix just look down at it's home screen right now and count along with the simulated second hand on the main screen as it clicks off the seconds; 1 potato, 2 potato, wait potato, wait potato 3-4-5 potato, 6 potato. Ridiculous). It seemed like a support engineer, the one who requested the video, looked at my video and said to himself, "yup, that's a problem" They agreed to an exchange, so a.) I sent them my shiny new watch in perfect retail packaging - they returned a used, rebuilt, scuffed, watch in a bubble pack bag. Whatever. As long as it works. Nope, it had the EXACT same problem! I do not believe anyone at Garmin even looked at the replacement or my watch or the printout of the description of the problem I included. So, b.) I emailed tech support again - it was a complete, cold, back to square one: They retained none of the highly detailed description I emailed before, they lost my video, etc... So I re-emailed the video and the written description. Their final reply said "the unit is working as designed" indicating there is nothing further they would do. Complete dead-end, large corporation, apathy - I think they know how awful the product is, and they know I will go away.

Useless on my boat; speed readings are hilariously lag/unreliable, and the above timing error required I wear a $60 Ronstan race timer (a whole 2nd watch). Salt water jams the Quatix buttons unless you carefully rinse it after every use (not the case with any other sailing watch I have ever owned!) So the Quatix went to my bicycling hobby.

2.) Software errors galore - today it lost all of my configuration profiles AND lost the original profiles (i.e. screen and button configurations) that came with the unit titled "sailing" and "power-boating". How did that happen? I was curious to see what the default "fitness" profile looked like, so I selected it. That's all I did. Now "fitness" is the only profile remaining, the others are gone, I can not even create a new profile, I can not create a way-point (says "database error"). Tried a power-down reset - nope. Tried a restore factory settings - nope.

Complete waste of money. Look at the new price, then look at the pricing of the dozens available on eBay -- depreciation like that happens for a reason. My warning: We can not avoid buying Garmin, they are The Borg, if anything cool comes out they will assimilate it: so common sense consumer protection; If you buy Garmin, (i) do not expect caring and company-pride from the customer service (just apathetic no-sayers who do not care), (ii) make sure there is a return policy including shipping refund, and (iii) immediately upon receipt of the unit do what I failed to do; make absolutely sure it functions acceptably in the intended environment.

2.0 out of 5 stars I'm very disappointed with Quatix firmware 20 April 2016
By Alexandr Kochurov - Published on Amazon.com
I didn't use my Quatix watch for about 6 month since my last sailing and decided to discharge it and charge again to train the battery. After few hours battery of my watch died. But I can't turn it on back again. All I can see now when I try to turn on my watch is Start screen Garmin and copyright information. When I press any button I hear a standard beep sound. And after about 10 seconds they die. I tried to do a hard reset. No result. My friend bought Quatix almost at the same time. And had this situation too. But he managed to connect the watch to PC after a number of tries. He said he had deleted (such) file from watch memory and had updated firmware and his watch is working again. But my watch didn't recognized by laptop. Main problem that in Russia no certified service of Garmin that can maintain and repair Quatix. I believe that this problem most likely is related to firmware quality.
