The next-generation multisport marine smartwatch provides comprehensive boat connectivity. It connects with compatible Garmin chartplotters and other devices to stream data to your quatix 5 Sapphire watch, including speed, depth, temperature and wind. Compact and stylish with a scratch-resistant sapphire lens and quick-change bands, it also provides sports advanced fitness features and a wrist-based heart rate monitor. With built-in activity profiles and performance metrics for paddle boarding, kayaking and canoeing — whatever sport you want to track, quatix 5 Sapphire has you covered. It is also Wi-Fi enabled, allowing automatic activity uploads directly to Garmin Connect when connected to wireless networks.

Advanced autopilot control and remote waypoint marking features allow you to maintain control of your vessel, even if you are not the one at the helm. With the quatix 5 Sapphire, you can actually access a GHC 20 autopilot control unit to control the autopilot — change heading, turn and steer the boat. You also have remote waypoint marking, which allows you to add a waypoint from quatix 5 Sapphire and have it sync automatically with your connected chartplotter.

When it comes to sail racing, don’t just time your start, visualise it. See a virtual starting line represented on your quatix 5 Sapphire with 2 waypoints creating the starting line of a sailing race. With distance to start line, you’ll know how far you are from the line based on the distance to the virtual starting line. You’ll also have race countdown timer to count down the time to the start of the race and time to burn if the virtual starting line is present. And tack assist will determine whether the boat is being headed or lifted and then easily calibrate the boat’s port/starboard tack angles with the touch of a button.

Whether you’re paddle boarding or canoeing, quatix 5 Sapphire will track your stroke and distance per stroke plus your total distance; it even provides lap tracking. Plus, if water skiing, you can check your boat speed with a glance at your quatix 5 sapphire watch.

quatix 5 Sapphire watch is equipped with high-sensitivity GPS navigation and tracking functions plus ABC (altimeter, barometer and compass) sensor capabilities. The built-in altimeter provides elevation data to accurately monitor ascent and descent, while the barometer can be used to predict weather changes by showing short-term trends in air pressure. The 3-axis electronic compass keeps your bearing, whether you’re moving or not. In addition, there’s an internal gyroscope to help improve position accuracy (and battery life) in UltraTrac mode.

Whether you’re on water or dry land, quatix 5 Sapphire can track your physical activities. It features Elevate wrist-based heart-rate monitor, which provides 24/7 monitoring without the use of a chest strap. It also offers advanced fitness training features that include training statistics and activity profiles for multiple sports/activities such as running, biking, swimming, hiking and golfing. Since quatix 5 Sapphire is Wi-Fi enabled, your activity stats can automatically upload directly to Garmin Connect when connected to wireless networks.

Smart notifications through quatix 5 Sapphire let you receive emails, texts and alerts right on your watch — whether you're on the water, trail, golf course or simply away from your desk. Other connected features include automatic uploads to our Garmin Connect online fitness community, live tracking and social media sharing through our free Garmin Connect and Garmin Connect Mobile applications.
