Hardware Design

Most of the hardware between the Quatix 5 and 6 has stayed the same. They both have the same number of buttons but come with a slightly different bezel design. The lens has also changed, the standard edition for the Quatix 5 came with a glass lens while the titanium Quatix 5 had a sapphire lens. The new Quatix 6 comes with Corning Gorilla Glass DX while the titanium version comes with Sapphire Lens. The newer models also have a larger display size overall and a better resolution for that display.

The Quatix 6 series has also seen new battery modes introduced for the watch to enhance battery life.

  • Smartwatch mode: up to 14 days (standard mode)
  • GPS mode: up to 36 hours
  • GPS and music up to 10 hours
  • Max battery GPS Mode up to 72 hours
  • Expedition GPS Activity up to 28 days
    • The watch enters a low power mode and collects GPS track points once an hour. To maximise battery life, the device turns off all sensors and accessories including connection to your smartphone
  • Battery saver watch mode
    • Allows you to access custom settings to turn off different aspects of the watches functions like GPS tracking, smartphone connecting, optical HRM to extend the battery life of the watch

Features and Accessories

Unlike the Quatix 5 the Quatix 6 is packed with features beyond just a marine focus. The quatix 6 has the same features as the fenix 6 in regards to health and fitness. The quatix 6 has both optical HRM and pulse ox tracking. The optical HRM gives the watch information on your heartbeat hwile the Pulse Ox give information on you blood oxygen saturation. This data is passed over to many of the activities and workout profiles preloaded into the watch to give you live updates on your performance.

The quatix 6 comes preloaded with outdoor recreation profiles, navigation features and sensors built into the watch like the barometric altimeter and compass. This allows the watch to be a lot more then just specialised marine watch it’s a versatile everyday watch with specific features for golfing, swimming, cycling and outdoor navigation with preloaded topo maps.

Quatix 6

Marine and Sailing Features

The Quatix 6 can pair to your boat for all your navigating information at-a-glance. This does require the use of a compatible Garmin Chartplotter* or the GNT 10 transceiver. With this connection you easily view a tonne of information about your current position including water depth, engine RPM, wind, custom data pages and more. You can also sync your watch to drop a waypoint from anywhere on the boat. You can also have access to built-in features like the anchor alarm, virtual starting line, tack assist mode and built-in barometer and tide tables (tide tables need to be downloadable).

Compatible Chartplotters list: GNT 10 transceiver, GPSMAP 1222xsv Plus, GPSMAP 1222xsv Touch, GPSMAP 7407xsv, GPSMAP 752xs, GPSMAP 752xs Plus, GPSMAP 8410xsv, GPSMAP 8412xsv, GPSMAP 8416xsv, GPSMAP 8417 MFD, GPSMAP 8422 MFD, GPSMAP 8424 MFD, GPSMAP 952xs Plus. (current as of 1/06/20) talk to our team for current updates.

You can find a full list of compatible bands and accessories like heart rate monitor chest straps on this page.

Summary – Is the Quatix 6 worth it?

It’s a great fitness watch if you didn’t even account for the additional marine focused features. It does have an expensive price tag but that tag comes with almost everything current smartwatches can offer and then some especially considering the preloaded maps, golf courses and workouts. The value really stems from whether you will use the sailing features as this is the only aspect that differentiates it from a fenix 6.
