Fish Inland With quatix

Never before have fishermen been able to have all the information and capabilities that quatix provides, conveniently available on their wrists. You can load routes and waypoints into quatix. Find a hot spot, mark the waypoint and quatix will navigate you right back to that spot in the future.

quatix also captures your track and 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, you can use sight and go navigation. Pick a point in the distance you want to navigate to, set quatix, and it 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. But quatix isn’t just for inland fishing.

Saltwater fishermen looking for big sportfish will enjoy the special features available to them with quatix.

The built-in barometer monitors barometric pressure to help you detect changing weather conditions. Tide tables provide the same accurate tide data built into our chartplotters and covers more than 3,400 locations.

This amazing watch even features built-in remote capabilities. It allows you to remotely control a Garmin autopilot so you can move around the deck while having information and control right there on your wrist.

Plus NMEA 2000 data can be wirelessly streamed to quatix when paired with a GNT™ 10. This allows you to view NMEA 2000 data, such as wind speed and direction, water depth and more right on your wrist, wherever you are on the boat.

Sail With quatix

Whether you’re sailing in an international regatta or racing dinghies you have a distinct advantage in any sailing race with the special sailing features that quatix puts right on your wrist. In addition to all the other remarkable features available to mariners, quatix offers sailors 3 key features. With Virtual Starting Line you can set up a virtual starting line between 2 marked GPS waypoints, for example a buoy and the committee boat. Your quatix will then compute the distance and time between you and that starting line line which you can check with a glance to your wrist. Then, quatix combines the Virtual Starting Line location with a built-in Countdown Timer to calculate both 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 the start line at maximum speed at the exact start time. Once the race is underway, the 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.
