Garmin Quatix Boating Smartwatch

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:
