Garmin Quatix 5 – smart watch “for those who are at sea”
Smart watches are becoming more diverse. So, the novelty from the famous company Garmin – watch Quatix 5 – is specially designed not just for travelers, but for those who travel by sea. You can not call the main feature of these watches built-in GPS – it’s useful, but not exclusive. However, there are other interesting features.
So, the developers have provided the clock with a special communication protocol for working together with on-board electronics, including Garmin chartplotters and other navigation devices. With their help, you can mark waypoints, set up autopilot, and control other devices. The clock displays important in the sea indicators: temperature, depth, speed of movement, direction of wind force.
The Quatix 5 model is also equipped with other sensors and applications. The clock will help when riding a bicycle, and when rowing, swimming, running, walking and other activities. So, when you go ashore, take your watch with you.
In terms of design, the watch is quite large and strict. Bezel is made of high-quality stainless steel, which looks brutal and ensures safety when immersed in a hundred-meter depth. In normal mode, the watch can work for a couple of weeks. Enabling the UltraTrac mode will shorten this period to 60 hours, and the GPS receiver mode – up to 24 hours.
The estimated cost of the clock is $ 600 for the regular version and $ 850 for the quatix 5 Sapphire.
