Designed for avid mariners of all types, from yachtsmen and power boaters to dinghy racers and kayakers, quatix provides unrivaled performance and awareness in a rugged marine watch. Whether you're onboard on a high performance race boat or simply cruising along on a day sail, the quatix does it all. It's the only GPS-enabled device in existence to provide this incredible range of marine navigation features including automatic MOB detection¹, remote control of Garmin equipment, and the streaming of real time data such as wind and depth info to your watch.

The quatix combines advanced sail racing tools to give you that competitive edge during a regatta or to gauge your performance while training. 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.
