Today Garmin announced the launch of a new smartwatch to be added to their range of existing smartwatches.

Called the Garmin Quatix 5 Marine, it is a GPS smartwatch that has been designed to be used alongside fitness activities such as running, cycling, swimming, rowing, and more.

To top that off, it also comes with Garmin’s Elevate technology which monitors your heart rate from your wrist.

It is also designed to be used all day long for the entire week with a 47mm size and a stainless steel bezel.

It also comes with Garmin’s QuickFit bands, which are available with metal, leather or silicone options.

Dan Bartel, Garmin vice president of global consumer sales said the following about it:

“From fishermen chasing billfish or bass to canoeists, kayakers and big sail and power boaters, the quatix 5 was designed for life on the water, it combines feature and design qualities from our popular fenix® 5 multisport watch series with boating, fishing, cruising and sailing capabilities to deliver the most sophisticated and connected general-purpose marine smartwatch on the market today.”

You will be able to pick up the Quatix 5 from Garmin from the second quarter of 2017 for £499. You can find out more about it and pre-order it at the source link below.
