As if the fenix wasn't already the all-performing outdoor watch, Garmin has announced the release of the new quatix. This GPS wristwatch is specifically engineered for avid mariners, combining complex technology and simplicity in one unit. Kayakers, sailors and power boaters alike will love the ease of use and abundance of information this device holds.
The quatix uses specialized racing features that are useful in competition. From the virtual starting line, countdown timer and track assist mode, this watch is sure to give you the edge you need. Be able to mark waypoints and routes with the high-sensitivity GPS Garmin navigator. Canoeists and kayakers can navigate to their desired destination without worry. The unit is waterproof up to 50m and has a self-adjusting altimeter, barometer and 3-axis electronic compass.
One of the unique features on the quatix is the autopilot remote control system. Sync up the quatix with a compatible Garmin GPS unit on your boat, and you can navigate from your wrist while you walk around or relax. Be able to wirelessly stream wind speed, water depth and other data when you pair it with a Garmin GNT 10 NMEA transceiver.
The garmin quatix, starting at $449.99, is now available for pre-order on the GPS City website here. Estimated stock date is March 29, 2013.
