Garmin has rolled out a new smartwatch aimed at people who spend a lot of time on the water. The new smartwatch is called the quatix 3 and it is a marine focused watch that has cruising, fishing, and sailing capabilities. The watch has sunlight-readable high-resolution color display and comes loaded with features that are specifically marine in nature.
The watch does support smart notifications to make it useful on land as well. Quatix 3 has full navigational and marine tools and is a wearable instrument that streams NMEA 2000 boat data to give users access to sensor information.
The information that the watch offers includes speed, depth, temperature, wind data, and more. The watch also allows boaters to stop and start recording or take still images with the Garmin VIRB action camera. It will also control the Fusion stereo system.
The watch has the ability to set MOB waypoints and to navigate back to that point. It also has a 3-axis compass, barometer, and an altimeter. Other features include tidal data and an anchor rode calculator to give the proper length of anchor line to put out. Anglers can also use an integrated competition timer and fish catch log. The quatix 3 will launch in Q1 and sells for $599.99.
