Mariners and timepieces go way back in nautical history. It's just that watches these days do so much more than just tell time. Take, for example, Garmin's eye-catching quatix 7 marine watch line. Three new models (7, 7 Sapphire, and 7X Solar) have one-touch control on its 1.3-inch touchscreen and can integrate with MFD display via Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, deliver weather and tide data, stream engine data, and display Garmin BlueChart and LakeVu g3 cartography. On top of that, quatix adds some of the health-monitoring features some nonmarine smartwatches provide, like heart rate, respiration rate, and hydration.
Take a look for yourself:
The Sapphire edition features an AMOLED display with resolution boost from 260 x 260 pixels to 416 x 416 pixels. The Solar edition adds solar charging into the mix. Battery life is 16 to 18 days, and solar models can go for over a month. Bodies are manufactured with fiber-reinforced polymer with a titanium rear; bezels are stainless-steel; lenses are Gorilla Glass; and the waterproof rating of 10 ATM can withstand the pressure of depths to 100 meters (325+ feet!). $699.99 to $1,199.99 | Garmin.com
