Garmin quatix 6X Solar: the nautical sportwatch

The new Garmin quatix 6X Solar is the sportwatch dedicated to those who love sailing. It integrates the best physical monitoring and boat control functions, thanks to the most advanced technology at the service of sporting passion. With the implementation of the innovative Power Glass lens, capable of storing solar energy, this new sportwatch considerably extends battery autonomy. In fact, as its very name reveals, the quatix 6X Solar includes an exclusive solar recharge function that adds to all the well-known features of the quatix 6 series, in this case housed in a 51 mm case made of grade 2 titanium. The watch's autonomy, in smartwatch mode, allows for up to 21 days' use, which can be extended to an additional 24 hours per week thanks to solar recharging. In GPS mode, it provides up to 60 hours of use, plus up to 6 additional hours with exposure to sunlight. The 1.4'' colour display with LED backlighting and 280×280 pixel resolution allows clear and intuitive reading in all light conditions. The watch is paired with a grade 2 titanium bracelet and comes with a spare silicone strap, equipped with a QuickFit system for quick and easy replacement. In terms of dedicated sailing functions, the new Garmin sportwatch connects wirelessly to compatible multifunction chartplotters to monitor numerous on-board sensors on the boat directly on the watch and, via the GNT 10 transceiver, connects to all NMEA 2000 networks. It is therefore a true tool that allows the user to monitor speed, depth, temperature, autopilot management, save waypoints on the chartplotter directly from their wrist, the Fusion entertainment system and all specific functions for sailing, including tide information, MOB (man overboard) function and much more. The new quatix 6X Solar also supports the BlueChart g3 cartography, which integrates Garmin content with the best of Navionics data, and allows you to take advantage of optimised SailAssist functions, such as Virtual Starting Line and race countdown synchronisation with the committee boat, to cross the start line at the right time. Furthermore, when paired with one of Garmin's inReach series of satellite communicators, you can always be tracked wherever you decide to sail your boat in the world. The Garmin quatix 6X Solar is available from the best watchmakers for €1,149.
