Marine smartwatch for those who live an active lifestyle on and off the water
Garmin's quatix 6 marine GPS smartwatch series was designed for life on the water….but for those of us who can't get there right now because of Stay-at-Home orders, it doubles as a daily activity tracker with a ton of great health-monitoring features like wrist-based heart rate for all-day stress tracking, Pulse Ox , Body Battery energy monitoring and more. If marinas and boat ramps are closed in your area, the quatix 6 is loaded with an activity profile for nearly every sport or adventure (on land or at sea!) so no matter how you're staying healthy and active during this quarantine, a quatix smartwatch can help.

- The quatix 6 series also adds support for optional BlueChart g3 coastal charts and LakeVü inland maps so it can be utilized as both a dedicated or back-up navigation tool.
