Bizarre and inscrutable user interface, which has button behaviors that do not match the pattern established by other Activity apps. Super disappointing given that Garmin does well on other activities

For simple cruising functions, I have had no problems like the racers. I do take exception to the method of stopping and activity. Instead of using Start/Stop button, one must use the Up button to enter the app settings and then end the activity. Makes no sense. all other apps use the same button and this is difficult to actually perform when you are, maybe, trying to pick up a mooring or docking or anything requiring control of the boat.

App is full of bugs and mainly it records HR and tracking but there is no calorie output- always on 0!

Chi ha fatto questa app non sa cosa serve in regata.
Copiate il funzionamento del velocitek e non discostatevi dalle 5 funzionalità.

Not usable and unable to exit once launched without reboot. Why bother having such a poorly written app?

No way to clock the app.
The sync moves to 4 min or 1 min but stops the count dow

Not only is this extremely clunky, there doesn't appear to be a way out of the program without a reboot.

Absolutly agree with the most of reviewers. The only useful option of this watches - MOB button. SailRace mode is awful. As I see, here in reviews are all problems and advices what do the sailors need, but Garmin ignoring it for a long time.
Quatix 5 is positioned as a special tool for boating and sailing. I don't need golf in it, I don't need laps, I don't need a lot of multisport features. Give me big size start-timer, give me star-line from starboard to port, give me current boat-speed and timer. And do it in very very very simple form.
My smartphone can do it with the 10 dollars dry-pack
Guys from Garmin, is there anyone who realy sailing and racing in your company?
If I would have a little more brain and read all of this reviews before, I'll never buy Garmin products, because this brand ignoring their customers

For a watch that is, by its very name touted as being for sailors, this is a poor effort. Setting a start sequence of more or less than 5 minu/tes is not possible.. likewise it is useless for multi-/race regattas, as the effort to shut the app then restart it is far from intuitive and in the midst of handling a dinghy in a breeze, simply too hard. Given that these types of functions are the basics that most competitive sailors need and which are widely available on almost every cheap start watch on the market, this device is an overpriced, poor attempt, likely programmed by someone who doesn’t race..

Have spent the last 5 months (October 2018 - March 2019) working with product support and their engineering team trying to get this to work properly on the latest Quatix 5 Sapphire. Provided log files, photos, videos - It just doesn't work.
After setting the startline (as other have noted - backwards - port then starboard), I kick off the 5 min timer. Distance to line shows up, but the burn time shows as dashes. On some rare occasions, that burn time changes to a time, There's no rhyme nor reason to that though. After the 5 minutes are up, watch does switch over correctly into race mode.
According to the engineering department, the criteria is that you must have a COG of more than 0.1 (they haven't quite decided which units, but whether Kms, Knots or MPH, that's pretty slow) and that your VMG to the line must be greater than 0. Let that sink in for a moment - according to them, if you turn away from the line (because maybe you actually get a burn time and need to head away so you don't cross) - you won't get a burn time.
So I'm really not sure how you can advertise this as a feature of the watch. It will never be useful for a racing sailor if that's the criteria. And that's without getting into how the line has to be set wrong, you can't navigate towards buoys or anything like that.
