Garmin's latest smart watch, the Quatix 7 Pro, is packed with state-of-the-art features for life on the sea.

Purpose-built for life on the sea, the new Quatix 7 Pro from Garmin features a housing made from recycled ocean-bound plastics, as well as a stunning 1.3-inch AMOLED display with a premium, scratch-resistant sapphire lens.

In addition, the new smartwatch, which has a 16 day battery life when in smartwatch mode, features two new apps – Trolling Motor Remote and Fish Forecast – that enrich life on the water for mariners, boaters and anglers.

Rugged enough to withstand the harsh marine environment yet sophisticated enough to wear to dinner with friends, the Quatix 7 Pro features a scratch-resistant sapphire lens, titanium bezel with a diamond-like carbon coating, a metal button guard, quick-release bands and metal-protected lugs. Users can take advantage of the smartwatch’s traditional button controls in challenging marine environments or utilise the touchscreen interface for quick access to all the watch’s functions.

For convenient illumination, the Quatix 7 Pro has a bright LED flashlight with variable intensities and strobe modes, including a red-light mode to help preserve night vision after the sun sets.

User-friendly Apps

With built-in apps created for adventures on the water, the Quatix 7 Pro is the ultimate smartwatch to captain a helm. In addition to preloaded boating apps and activities, the smartwatch features a new Trolling Motor Remote app that gives anglers the ability to control their Force trolling motors from anywhere on the boat, providing quick and easy command from the wrist. This new feature allows captains to view motor status and receive trolling motor alerts while connected to the trolling motor.

The Quatix 7 Pro also gives mariners convenient remote-control access to compatible Garmin chartplotters, autopilots, Fusionaudio systems and more, right from their wrist.

Anglers will also enjoy the Fish Forecast app, which tracks the solar and lunar movements during the day to advise of what times fish will potentially be most active and find the best times for fishing expeditions. The watch also boasts updated marine apps and activities to track boating data and receive alerts to help enhance situational awareness while on the water.

Navigate with Ease

Thanks to advanced navigation sensors, multi-band GPS and SatIQ technology, the Quatix 7 Pro delivers superior positioning accuracy in challenging environments while also optimising battery life. It comes preloaded with TopoActive maps to keep land-based explorations on track and also supports optional mapping, including detail-rich BlueChart g3 coastal charts and LakeVü g3 inland maps as well as weather map overlays, so mariners can confidently navigate their voyage on a colorful display that’s easy to read even in bright sunlight.

Premium fitness features like VO2 max, endurance score and hill score can help users stay fit, while wellness insights like advanced sleep monitoring and Pulse Ox can help users understand their body better. Users can also gain a more complete picture of their overall health with Garmin’s ECG app, which comes preloaded on the watch.
