Major Addition to the Garmin Quatix 7
- AMOLED Display
- Anchor Drag Alarm: This feature alerts users when they have exceeded a specified drag force on their anchor.
- Tide alerts: The Quatix 7 Series includes tidal information and daily predictions for over 100 locations. This allows the user to plan their sailing or boating route based on tidal conditions, particularly useful in areas with strong currents.
- Multi-band GPS: The latest GPS technology provides additional accuracy, especially in Saphire and Solar Editions.
- Multicontinent Topo Maps
The Quatix 7 boasts an AMOLED display, a significant improvement over the previous model, which featured a lower-quality transflective memory-in-pixel (MIP). This change brings the Quatix 7 in line with the Epix 2nd generation watches, which also feature AMOLED displays.
With its seamless integration with Garmin Chartplotting and Boat systems, this advanced device allows you to easily access essential navigational data like depth, engine RPM, wind speed, and autopilot control right on your wrist.
Whether you’re planning a deep-sea fishing trip or a coastal sailing adventure, Quatix 7 has everything you need to make sure that you stay safe and informed on the water.
The Garmin Quatix 7 has a battery life of up to 16 days in smartwatch mode, 21 days in battery saver watch mode, and 42 hours in GPS-only mode. Further, the battery can go up to more than 139 days with solar power in the Solar variant.
This advanced smartwatch also comes with a highly precise Global navigation satellite system (GNSS) that uses multiple constellations (GPS, GLONASS, and Galileo) to track your location even in challenging environments.
In addition to sailing features, the Quatix 7 comes with over 30 sports profiles, including swimming, walking, and running. Golfers will also appreciate the 42,000 courses available on the watch, which will help you track your golf stats and improve your game.
The smart features of this smartwatch include smart notifications, Garmin Pay, and also music storage and streaming via Amazon Music, Spotify, and Deezer.
The standard version of this watch starts at $699.99, while the Saphire Edition costs $999.99, and the Solar model comes in at a whopping $1,199.99.
But despite its high price tag, the Quatix 7 is well worth it for anyone who loves spending time outdoors or participating in any type of watersport.
