Yes, I had the Garmin Quatix 5, but sold it last year for an Apple Watch (only because I wanted ApplePay or Bank card support) . Useful info for sailing, but as ColPrice2002 says, be aware of your class rules.

Would only be using mine for training - mostly for running but would be interesting to see speed too whilst out training in my boat. Would not use when racing as frankly there is too much going on to look at speed!

You'll need to read your class rules carefully. A lot of the rules ban devices which show VMG, current speed through water, etc.

Some have only just allowed digital compasses!

Thinking of buying a new watch for running, and I've seen there are a number of sailing timers in the garmin app store.

Has anyone used any of them? Any good?
