Garmin Quatix 6X Solar

The latest addition to the Garmin Fenix 6 range is the Garmin Quatix 6X Solar. This is the existing Garmin Fenix 6X Solar with an aquatic twist for sailors.

There are several sail-based features including stream data, marine waypoints, Sailassist, FusionLink onboard entertainment control, autopilot control and Bluetooth G3 charts.

Of course, the key techy addition is the SOLAR charging giving 30 days of battery life in smartwatch mode and up to an additional 5 days when solar charging or 20 hours more in GPS mode. There is also a pretty cool and light titanium case and band, a snip at $999.99

Sailing. A hobby that makes cycling look cheap 🙂

Thousand Dollars…

I mean that’s chump change for people that sail for a hobby. It seems to me like Garmin is going further towards the Tesla Business model as they offer more and more products geared towards the very wealthy and offering a pittance for the rest of the population. That or a really stripped down version for everyone else.

Get that Shakespeare in now, because the Globe Theatre is about to close, Permanently.

Hi do you have any idea when will it be available to buy? It seems cheaper than a marq watch with better features and a pretty good looking and quite a light case.

Ralph
