Garmin has introduced a new model of smartwatch called Quatix 6, the key feature of which, in addition to the GPS-sensor module, is the support of the motorboat control function. At the same time, the device has retained all the "traditional" features for its class, including fitness programs and compatibility with popular music services.
The gadget in a case with water protection (100 ATM) is equipped with a 1.3-inch round color display with a resolution of 260x260 pixels, covered with a protective glass Gorilla Glass DX. The list of technical features of the device includes 32 GB of internal memory, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and GPS modules, as well as the ability to control the streaming of content from Spotify and Deezer services. A set of built-in sensors includes a heart rate monitor, gyroscope, thermometer, compass, and other sensors.
One of the key features of the watch is the function of remote control of a motorboat equipped with a set of branded Garmin transmitters. Using the gadget, the shipowner can track information about water and air temperature, wind speed, and depth under the keel. Moreover, with the steering function, the boat will automatically follow the specified route, which can be controlled directly from the wrist.
The claimed autonomy of the device is up to 14 days of daily use and up to 24 hours when the GPS module is activated. Standard smartwatch functions such as monitoring sleep quality and physical activity are also supported.
The base version of the Garmin Quatix 6 went on sale for $699.9, and the accessory in a titanium case with a sapphire glass coating costs $999.
