First and foremost, the Garmin quatix 3 Marine Multisport GPS Smartwatch belongs on the water! You'll find invaluable features like a stainless steel EXO™ antenna with GPS and GLONASS reception, 3-axis compass, altimeter, barometer, TracBack® and Sight ‘N Go, plus easy-to-use marine apps that provide local tide data, sail racing data, fish catch counter and competition timer, anchor watch, alarm clock and much more. Multisport functions are built-in for sailing, fishing, running, hiking, swimming, paddling, rowing, golfing, biking and fitness. An activity tracking feature closely estimates steps taken, calories burned and stairs climbed. More than a watch, the quatix 3 is a wearable instrument that streams data from compatible Garmin electronics. A fish catch counter and competition timer, race timer, start line and tack assist for sailors, plus an anchor watch to warn you of drifting. It delivers smart notifications for emails, text messages and more when synced to your smartphone. It can even control your FUSION® stereo system.
Not Just A Pretty Face
You'll find a protective stainless steel EXO bezel and buttons that are not only good looking, but functional, a built-in, high-sensitivity GPS and GLONASS antenna, a unique sunlight-visible, high-resolution color Garmin Chroma Display™ with LED backlight, a case that's water-resistant to 100 meters and a battery life of up to 20 hours in GPS mode, 50 hours in UltraTrac™ battery saver mode and 6 weeks in watch mode (depending on settings).
Preloaded Marine Features
More than just a watch, the quatix 3 is a wearable instrument that streams NMEA 2000® data from compatible fixed-mount Garmin electronics. With a quick glance, you can check your speed, water depth, temperature, wind data and more. You also have access to up-to-date tide data downloaded for your area to the quatix 3 through your smartphone. There’s a standalone Man Overboard (MOB) button that allows you to quickly save a location if a crew member goes overboard, so you can navigate right back to the site. It’s even preloaded with a wide selection of marine-themed watch faces you can choose to make a statement about your nautical interests.
You can load routes and waypoints into your quatix 3 smartwatch. GPS and GLONASS navigation on your wrist allows you to find a hot spot, mark the waypoint and navigate right back to that spot in the future. quatix 3 also automatically captures your track and, if needed, can guide you right back to your starting location. So even if you don’t have a chartplotter on your boat, you can find your way around your favorite fishing spots. In addition, Sight ‘N Go navigation allows you to pick a point in the distance you want to navigate to, set it and your quatix 3 will keep you on course. This is especially helpful for kayakers and canoeists. It also has a solar/lunar fishing and hunting calendar so you’ll know the optimum time to fish.
Saltwater fishermen looking for big sportfish will enjoy special features that are available to them. In addition to its navigational features and standalone MOB, quatix 3 also lets you stream and view NMEA 2000 data, such as depth, speed, water temperature and more, right on your wrist, wherever you are on the boat. The built-in barometer monitors barometric pressure to help you detect changing weather conditions and you can download the most up-to-date tide tables for your area through your smartphone.
Want more control, situational awareness and confidence wherever you are on deck? NMEA 2000 data can be wirelessly streamed from your Garmin chartplotter so you can view data like wind speed and direction, water depth and more, right on your wrist, wherever you are on the boat. There’s also an anchor watch that monitors anchor drift and alerts you if your boat begins to drift. It includes an alarm clock and anchor rode calculator to tell you the proper length of anchor line to put out with an adjustable scope ratio. It's also an excellent backup navigation system if something happens to your onboard electrical system.
If you race, now you have access to important sail racing data on your wrist beyond just time. The virtual starting line feature lets you set up a starting line between two marked GPS waypoints (like between a buoy and the committee boat). Your quatix 3 will then compute the distance and time between you and that starting line, which you can check with a glance at your wrist. Then, quatix 3 combines the virtual starting line location with a built-in countdown timer to calculate distance to the line as well as desired speed and burn time available. The countdown timer, with its large, easy-to-read digits, helps you skipper the vessel to hit the start line at maximum speed at the exact start time. Once the race is underway, tack assist mode lets you know whether your vessel is getting headed or lifted based on the optimal tack angle provided. Using tack assist can help you enjoy a more efficient and controlled sailing experience.
No more fiddling with an awkward remote control as you pound across the waves! Download a free app from Garmin's Connect IQ™ store and you can actually control your FUSION stereo from anywhere onboard—right from your wrist. You can adjust volume, change tracks and more; however, it does require a 2014 or newer Garmin GPSMAP® chartplotter to be connected through FUSION-Link to the FUSION stereo. You can also remotely control both the music from your phone and your Garmin VIRB® XE Action Camera. The watersports-friendly FUSION StereoActive Portable Stereo is a cinch to connect and control as well.
Altimeter, Barometer and Compass
The quatix 3 is equipped with ABC (Altimeter, Barometer and Compass) sensors to provide relevant real-time information. A 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. The quatix 3 auto-calibrates its ABC sensors using its GPS receiver and also auto-sets the time based on location. For an extremely accurate temperature reading, pair it with Garmin's tempe™ Wireless Temperature Sensor (sold separately).
quatix 3 provides comprehensive navigation and tracking functionalities to guide you across the water and off the beaten track. Plus, its built-in sensors provide information on heading, elevation and weather changes. It records a GPS track log creating a “bread crumb trail” as you move. It also allows you to mark locations, such as a start/finish line, course checkpoint, or a dock, mooring, campsite, vehicle or other point of interest. That means you can now create and follow courses, mark up to 1,000 locations and store up to 10,000 track points and navigate to them. Plan trips and share adventures with friends and family using BaseCamp™ (a free application for your PC or Mac).
By Sea or By Land
A quatix 3 watch isn’t just for sailing or powerboating. Its paddleboat functions allow you to track strokes and cadence and create an efficiency score. It also provides surfing tides and customizable activity features. On land, it becomes a multisport watch for running, hiking, swimming and more. It even has an activity tracking feature that counts steps taken, estimates calories burned and stairs climbed. When the day is done, it will track your sleep, monitoring your total sleep and periods of movement or restful sleep.
Advanced Fitness Metrics
Your quatix 3 is packed with training features to tell you about your form and fitness. The first is the VO2 max estimator. When used with a heart rate monitor (sold separately), quatix 3 crunches data, including your running speed, beats per minute and heart rate variability to estimate the maximum volume of oxygen you can consume per minute. Track changes to your VO2 max to see your fitness gains and to compare with your peers. Other fitness metrics include recovery advisor with a recovery timer and recovery check, plus a Race Predictor, which estimates your ideal finish time based on your current VO2 max number.
quatix 3 incorporates sophisticated Garmin running watch feedback on your running form by reporting multiple metrics. When used with the HRM-Run monitor (sold separately), quatix 3 reports your cadence, vertical oscillation and ground contact time. These metrics are called running dynamics and they affect your running economy.
Make It Your Own
You can personalize your quatix 3 with free downloads from the Garmin Connect IQ store. You can customize your watch face, add data fields and get apps and widgets that provide information at a glance.
Connected features include automatic uploads, live tracking and social media sharing through the free Garmin Connect™ and Garmin Connect™ Mobile online fitness applications, plus optional downloads of unique apps for watch/phone integration (when paired with a compatible smartphone).
Wear Your Personality on Your Sleeve
