Anyone using one of these?
I've been looking at getting a GPS so I can keep track of actual distance, time and speed. Not a training thing, but I kayak for general fitness. (Rather paddle on the ocean or even a lake than ride a bike, and bad knees so running is not an option.)
The Quatix has the same basic functions of my Suunto Core, such as a compass and time. The Quatix adds local tide tables, which might be helpful in case I don't look it up before going out.
A GPS could be a safety device if I got lost in fog, which is unlikely but can happen, or need to give my coordinates if I needed help.
Wearing this all on a wrist is a consolidation of sorts: instead of a Core and a large hand help GPS device, the Quatix is "all in one".
I've tried using my Iphone in a case, but am not comfortable running the risk of a failure and having to pay full price for a new Iphone .... costs much more than a GPS.
Then of course it could also be a neat toy to play with, planning routes on my Ipad, downloading to the Quatix and following the waypoints. Kinda of like adding a game to kayaking.
