TIME MA­CHINE

SAIL - - Gear -

Some sailors want a watch that just tells the time. Oth­ers want some­thing like Garmin’s Qu­atix 5, which is much more than a mere time­piece. If your boat is kit­ted out with Garmin gear, you can ac­cess in­for­ma­tion like depth speed, wind di­rec­tion and a bunch of other info from the Qu­atix 5; you can even use it to con­trol your au­topi­lot, not to men­tion your sound sys­tem. Its in­te­gral barom­e­ter, com­pass and GPS make it even more ver­sa­tile. It also tells the time. $599. Garmin, garmin.com
