Garmin Quatix 3 marine GPS smartwatch for fishers and sailors
Garmin has announced a new smartwatch targeted towards people who stay a lot on waters. Garmin Quatix 3 marine GPS smartwatch is going to be the ideal gadget to have if you are into cruising, fishing or sailing. The wearable has a high-resolution color display and comes in a rugged form-factor ideal for harsh marine environment. Not only does the smartwatch serve you good in the waters, but it also assists you well on land. This apparently is the second edition after the Garmin Quatix marine GPS watch launched more than two years’ ago.
Quatix 3 has a full navigational and marine toolset which doubles as an instrument to wirelessly stream NMEA 2000 boat data to keep you updated with vital information including temperature, speed, depth and wind data. There are basic water navigation functions like 3-axis electronic compass, barometer, and auto-calibrating altimeter. More features include the ability to control Garmin VIRB action camera or take control of the Fusion stereo system from the wrist. Since navigating in the waters can be tricky, therefore the smartwatch comes with MOB (Man overboard) hotkey to follow the point back to safety.
For fishers the watch has features like fish catch log and competition timer to keep track of the number of fish caught. Quatix 3 is waterproof to a depth of 100 meters and 20 hours of battery life ensures its promise of hardcore use. Other than the marine activities, this smartwatch can also be used for golfing, SUP, rowing, swimming, hiking, skiing and running.
Garmin Quatix 3 is going to be available for a price tag of $599.99 in Q1 2016 and with all those features it is going to lure buyers for sure.
