> Units.
2 Select an option.
Tack Assist
While cruising or racing into the wind, the tack assist feature can
help you determine if your boat is being lifted or headed. When
you calibrate tack assist, the device captures your boat's port
and starboard
course over ground (COG) measurements,
and uses the COG data to calculate the mean true wind
direction
and the boat's tack angle .
The device uses this data to determine whether your boat is
being lifted or headed due wind shifts.
By default, the device tack assist is set to automatic, and the
device recalculates the tack angle and true wind direction each
time the port or starboard COG is calibrated. You can change
the tack assist settings to enter a fixed tack angle or true wind
direction.
NOTE: The quatix uses GPS-based course over ground to
determine your course in the tack assist feature, and does not
account for other factors that can affect your boat's direction,
such as currents and tides.
Calibrating the Tack Assist
1 From the watch face, select START > Sail Race.
2 Select Race or Cruise.
3 Follow the on-screen instructions.
A red or green bar appears. A red bar indicates that your
boat is being headed. A green bar indicates that your boat is
being lifted.

You can use the device to increase the likelihood that your boat
will cross the start line of a race exactly when the race begins.
When you synchronize the race timer with the official race
countdown timer, you are alerted at one-minute intervals as the
race start approaches. The device uses this data to indicate
whether your boat will cross the start line before, after, or at the
correct time to start the race.
Setting the Starting Line
1 From the watch face, select START > Sail Race > Settings
> Ping Start Line.
2 Select Mark to mark the port starting line mark as you sail
past it.

3 Wear the heart rate monitor with the Garmin logo facing rightside up.
The loop
and hook
connection should be on your right
side.
4 Wrap the heart rate monitor around your chest, and connect
the strap hook to the loop.
NOTE: Make sure the care tag does not fold over.
After you put on the heart rate monitor, it is active and sending
data.
Tips for Erratic Heart Rate Data
If the heart rate data is erratic or does not appear, you can try
these tips.
• Reapply water to the electrodes and contact patches (if
applicable).
• Tighten the strap on your chest.
• Warm up for 5 to 10 minutes.
• Follow the care instructions (Caring for the Heart Rate
Monitor, page 11).
• Wear a cotton shirt or thoroughly wet both sides of the strap.
Synthetic fabrics that rub or flap against the heart rate
monitor can create static electricity that interferes with heart
rate signals.
• Move away from sources that can interfere with your heart
rate monitor.
Sources of interference may include strong electromagnetic
fields, some 2.4 GHz wireless sensors, high-voltage power
lines, electric motors, ovens, microwave ovens, 2.4 GHz
cordless phones, and wireless LAN access points.
Caring for the Heart Rate Monitor
NOTICE
A buildup of sweat and salt on the strap can decrease the ability
of the heart rate monitor to report accurate data.
• Rinse the heart rate monitor after every use.
• Hand wash the heart rate monitor after every seven uses or
one pool swim, using a tiny amount of mild detergent, such
as dishwashing liquid.
NOTE: Using too much detergent may damage the heart rate
monitor.
• Do not put the heart rate monitor in a washing machine or
dryer.
You can use your compatible quatix device paired with the
HRM-Tri™ accessory or other running dynamics accessory to
provide real-time feedback about your running form. If your
quatix device was packaged with the HRM-Tri accessory, the
devices are already paired.
The running dynamics accessory has an accelerometer that
measures torso movement in order to calculate six running
metrics.
Cadence: Cadence is the number of steps per minute. It
displays the total steps (right and left combined).
Vertical oscillation: Vertical oscillation is your bounce while
running. It displays the vertical motion of your torso,
measured in centimeters.
Ground contact time: Ground contact time is the amount of
time in each step that you spend on the ground while
running. It is measured in milliseconds.
NOTE: Ground contact time and balance are not available
while walking.
Ground contact time balance: Ground contact time balance
displays the left/right balance of your ground contact time
while running. It displays a percentage. For example, 53.2
with an arrow pointing left or right.
Stride length: Stride length is the length of your stride from one
footfall to the next. It is measured in meters.
Vertical ratio: Vertical ratio is the ratio of vertical oscillation to
stride length. It displays a percentage. A lower number
typically indicates better running form.
Training with Running Dynamics
Before you can view running dynamics, you must put on a
running dynamics accessory, such as the HRM-Tri accessory,
and pair it with your device (Pairing Your Wireless Sensors,
page 29). If your quatix 5 was packaged with the accessory,
the devices are already paired, and the quatix 5 is set to display
running dynamics data screens.
1 Select an option:
• If your running dynamics accessory and quatix 5 device
are already paired, skip to step 7.
• If your running dynamics accessory and quatix 5 device
are not already paired, complete all the steps in this
procedure.

Color Gauges and Running Dynamics Data
The running dynamics screens display a color gauge for the primary metric. You can display cadence, vertical oscillation, ground
contact time, ground contact time balance, or vertical ratio as the primary metric. The color gauge shows you how your running
dynamics data compare to those of other runners. The color zones are based on percentiles.
Garmin has researched many runners of all different levels. The data values in the red or orange zones are typical for less
experienced or slower runners. The data values in the green, blue, or purple zones are typical for more experienced or faster
runners. More experienced runners tend to exhibit shorter ground contact times, lower vertical oscillation, lower vertical ratio, and

higher cadence than less experienced runners. However, taller runners typically have slightly slower cadences, longer strides, and
slightly higher vertical oscillation. Vertical ratio is your vertical oscillation divided by stride length. It is not correlated with height.
Go to www.garmin.com/runningdynamics for more information on running dynamics. For additional theories and interpretations of
running dynamics data, you can search reputable running publications and websites.

Ground Contact Time Balance Data
Ground contact time balance measures your running symmetry and appears as a percentage of your total ground contact time. For
example, 51.3% with an arrow pointing left indicates the runner is spending more time on the ground when on the left foot. If your
data screen displays both numbers, for example 48–52, 48% is the left foot and 52% is the right foot.

While developing and testing running dynamics, the Garmin team found correlations between injuries and greater imbalances with
certain runners. For many runners, ground contact time balance tends to deviate further from 50–50 when running up or down hills.
Most running coaches agree that a symmetrical running form is good. Elite runners tend to have quick and balanced strides.
You can watch the color gauge or data field during your run or view the summary on your Garmin Connect account after your run.
As with the other running dynamics data, ground contact time balance is a quantitative measurement to help you learn about your
running form.
Vertical Oscillation and Vertical Ratio Data
The data ranges for vertical oscillation and vertical ratio are slightly different depending on the sensor and whether it is positioned at
the chest (HRM-Tri or HRM-Run™ accessories) or at the waist (Running Dynamics Pod accessory).

Tips for Missing Running Dynamics Data
If running dynamics data does not appear, you can try these
tips.
• Make sure you have a running dynamics accessory, such as
the HRM-Tri accessory.
Accessories with running dynamics have on the front of the
module.
• Pair the running dynamics accessory with your quatix device
again, according to the instructions.
• If the running dynamics data display shows only zeros, make
sure the accessory is worn right-side up.
NOTE: Ground contact time and balance appears only while
running. It is not calculated while walking.
Performance Measurements
These performance measurements are estimates that can help
you track and understand your training activities and race
performances. The measurements require a few activities using
wrist-based heart rate or a compatible chest heart rate monitor.
Cycling performance measurements require a heart rate monitor
and a power meter.
These estimates are provided and supported by Firstbeat. For
more information, go to www.garmin.com/physio.
12
NOTE: The estimates may seem inaccurate at first. The device
requires you to complete a few activities to learn about your
performance.
Training status: Training status shows you how your training
affects your fitness and performance. Your training status is
based on changes to your training load and VO2 max. over
an extended time period.
VO2 max.: VO2 max. is the maximum volume of oxygen (in
milliliters) you can consume per minute per kilogram of body
weight at your maximum performance.
Recovery time: The recovery time displays how much time
remains before you are fully recovered and ready for the next
hard workout.
Training load: Training load is the sum of your excess postexercise oxygen consumption (EPOC) over the last 7 days.
EPOC is an estimate of how much energy it takes for your
body to recover after exercise.
Heart Rate Features
Predicted race times: Your device uses the VO2 max. estimate
and published data sources to provide a target race time
based on your current state of fitness. This projection also
presumes you have completed the proper training for the
race.
HRV stress test: The HRV (heart rate variability) stress test
requires a Garmin chest heart rate monitor. The device
records your heart rate variability while standing still for 3
minutes. It provides your overall stress level. The scale is 1 to
100, and a lower score indicates a lower stress level.
Performance condition: Your performance condition is a realtime assessment after 6 to 20 minutes of activity. It can be
added as a data field so you can view your performance
condition during the rest of your activity. It compares your
real-time condition to your average fitness level.
Functional threshold power (FTP): The device uses your user
profile information from the initial setup to estimate your FTP.
For a more accurate rating, you can conduct a guided test.
Lactate threshold: Lactate threshold requires a chest heart rate
monitor. Lactate threshold is the point where your muscles
start to rapidly fatigue. Your device measures your lactate
threshold level using heart rate data and pace.
Turning Off Performance Notifications
Performance notifications are turned on by default. Some
performance notifications are alerts that appear upon completion
of your activity. Some performance notifications appear during
an activity or when you achieve a new performance
measurement, such as a new VO2 max. estimate.
1 Hold MENU.
2 Select Settings > Physiological Metrics > Performance
Notifications.
3 Select an option.
Detecting Performance Measurements Automatically
The Auto Detection feature is turned on by default. The device
can automatically detect your maximum heart rate, and lactate
threshold during an activity. When paired with a compatible
power meter, the device can automatically detect your functional
threshold power (FTP) during an activity.
NOTE: The device detects a maximum heart rate only when
your heart rate is higher than the value set in your user profile.
1 Hold MENU.
2 Select Settings > Physiological Metrics > Auto Detection.
3 Select an option.
Syncing Activities and Performance Measurements
You can sync activities and performance measurements from
other Garmin devices to your quatix 5 device using your Garmin
Connect account. This allows your device to more accurately
reflect your training status and fitness. For example, you can
record a ride with an Edge device, and view your activity details
and overall training load on your quatix 5 device.
1 Hold MENU.
2 Select Settings > Physiological Metrics > TrueUp.
When you sync your device with your smartphone, recent
activities and performance measurements from your other
Garmin devices appear on your quatix 5 device.
Training Status
Training status shows you how your training affects your fitness
level and performance. Your training status is based on changes
to your training load and VO2 max. over an extended time
period. You can use your training status to help plan future
training and continue improving your fitness level.
Peaking: Peaking means that you are in ideal race condition.
Your recently reduced training load is allowing your body to
recover and fully compensate for earlier training. You should
Heart Rate Features
plan ahead, since this peak state can only be maintained for
a short time.
Productive: Your current training load is moving your fitness
level and performance in the right direction. You should plan
recovery periods into your training to maintain your fitness
level.
Maintaining: Your current training load is enough to maintain
your fitness level. To see improvement, try adding more
variety to your workouts or increasing your training volume.
Recovery: Your lighter training load is allowing your body to
recover, which is essential during extended periods of hard
training. You can return to a higher training load when you
feel ready.
Unproductive: Your training load is at a good level, but your
fitness is decreasing. Your body may be struggling to
recover, so you should pay attention to your overall health
including stress, nutrition, and rest.
Detraining: Detraining occurs when you are training much less
than usual for a week or more, and it is affecting your fitness
level. You can try increasing your training load to see
improvement.
Overreaching: Your training load is very high and
counterproductive. Your body needs a rest. You should give
yourself time to recover by adding lighter training to your
schedule.
No Status: The device needs one or two weeks of training
history, including activities with VO2 max. results from
running or cycling, to determine your training status.
Tips for Getting Your Training Status
The training status feature depends on updated assessments of
your fitness level, including at least two VO2 max.
measurements per week. Your VO2 max. estimate is updated
after outdoor runs or rides during which your heart rate reached
at least 70% of your maximum heart rate for several minutes.
The trail run and indoor run activities do not generate a VO2
max. estimate in order to preserve the accuracy of your fitness
level trend.
To get the most out of the training status feature, you can try
these tips.
• At least two times per week, run or ride outdoors with a
power meter, and reach a heart rate higher than 70% of your
maximum heart rate for at least 10 minutes.
After using the device for one week, your training status
should be available.
• Record all of your fitness activities on this device, or enable
the Physio TrueUp™ feature, allowing your device to learn
about your performance (Syncing Activities and Performance
Measurements, page 13).
About VO2 Max. Estimates
VO2 max. is the maximum volume of oxygen (in milliliters) you
can consume per minute per kilogram of body weight at your
maximum performance. In simple terms, VO2 max. is an
indication of athletic performance and should increase as your
level of fitness improves. The quatix 5 device requires wristbased heart rate or a compatible chest heart rate monitor to
display your VO2 max. estimate. The device has separate VO2
max. estimates for running and cycling. You must run either
outside with GPS or ride with a compatible power meter at a
moderate level of intensity for several minutes to get an
accurate VO2 max. estimate.
On the device, your VO2 max. estimate appears as a number,
description, and position on the color gauge. On your Garmin
Connect account, you can view additional details about your
VO2 max. estimate, including your fitness age. Your fitness age
gives you an idea of how your fitness compares with a person of
the same gender and different age. As you exercise, your fitness
age can decrease over time.

14
Recovery Heart Rate
If you are training with wrist-based heart rate or a compatible
chest heart rate monitor, you can check your recovery heart rate
value after each activity. Recovery heart rate is the difference
between your exercising heart rate and your heart rate two
minutes after the exercise has stopped. For example, after a
typical training run, you stop the timer. Your heart rate is
140 bpm. After two minutes of no activity or cool down, your
heart rate is 90 bpm. Your recovery heart rate is 50 bpm (140
minus 90). Some studies have linked recovery heart rate to
cardiac health. Higher numbers generally indicate healthier
hearts.
TIP: For best results, you should stop moving for two minutes
while the device calculates your recovery heart rate value. You
can save or discard the activity after this value appears.
Training Load
Training load is a measurement of your training volume over the
last seven days. It is the sum of your excess post-exercise
oxygen consumption (EPOC) measurements for the last seven
days. The gauge indicates whether your current load is low,
high, or within the optimal range to maintain or improve your
fitness level. The optimal range is determined based on your
individual fitness level and training history. The range adjusts as
your training time and intensity increase or decrease.
Viewing Your Predicted Race Times
For the most accurate estimate, complete the user profile setup
(Setting Up Your User Profile, page 16), and set your
maximum heart rate (Setting Your Heart Rate Zones, page 16).

About Training Effect
Training Effect measures the impact of an activity on your
aerobic and anaerobic fitness. Training Effect accumulates
during the activity. As the activity progresses, the Training Effect
value increases, telling you how the activity has improved your
fitness. Training Effect is determined by your user profile
information, heart rate, duration, and intensity of your activity.
Aerobic Training Effect uses your heart rate to measure how the
accumulated intensity of an exercise affects your aerobic fitness
and indicates if the workout had a maintaining or improving
effect on your fitness level. Your EPOC accumulated during
Heart Rate Features
exercise is mapped to a range of values that account for your
fitness level and training habits. Steady workouts at moderate
effort or workouts involving longer intervals (>180 sec) have a
positive impact on your aerobic metabolism and result in an
improved aerobic Training Effect.
Anaerobic Training Effect uses heart rate and speed (or power)
to determine how a workout affects your ability to perform at
very high intensity. You receive a value based on the anaerobic
contribution to EPOC and the type of activity. Repeated highintensity intervals of 10 to 120 seconds have a highly beneficial
impact on your anaerobic capability and result in an improved
anaerobic Training Effect.
It is important to know that your Training Effect numbers (from
0.0 to 5.0) may seem abnormally high during your first few
activities. It takes several activities for the device to learn your
aerobic and anaerobic fitness.
You can add Training Effect as a data field to one of your
training screens to monitor your numbers throughout the activity.

Heart Rate Variability and Stress Level
Stress level is the result of a three-minute test performed while
standing still, where the quatix device analyzes heart rate
variability to determine your overall stress. Training, sleep,
nutrition, and general life stress all impact how a runner
performs. The stress level range is from 1 to 100, where 1 is a
very low stress state and 100 is a very high stress state.
Knowing your stress level can help you decide if your body is
ready for a tough training run or yoga.
Viewing Your Heart Rate Variability and Stress Level
This feature requires a Garmin chest heart rate monitor. Before
you can view your heart rate variability (HRV) stress level, you
must put on a heart rate monitor and pair it with your device
(Pairing Your Wireless Sensors, page 29). If your quatix 5
device was packaged with a heart rate monitor, the devices are
already paired.
TIP: Garmin recommends that you measure your stress level at
approximately the same time and under the same conditions
every day.
1 If necessary, select START > Add > HRV Stress to add the
stress app to the apps list.
2 Select Yes to add the app to your list of favorites.
3 From the watch face, select START > HRV Stress > START.
4 Stand still, and rest for 3 minutes.
Heart Rate Features
Performance Condition
As you complete your activity, such as running or cycling, the
performance condition feature analyzes your pace, heart rate,
and heart rate variability to make a real-time assessment of your
ability to perform compared to your average fitness level. It is
approximately your real-time percentage deviation from your
baseline VO2 max. estimate.
Performance condition values range from -20 to +20. After the
first 6 to 20 minutes of your activity, the device displays your
performance condition score. For example, a score of +5 means
that you are rested, fresh, and capable of a good run or ride.
You can add performance condition as a data field to one of
your training screens to monitor your ability throughout the
activity. Performance condition can also be an indicator of
fatigue level, especially at the end of a long training run or ride.
NOTE: The device requires a few runs or rides with a heart rate
monitor to get an accurate VO2 max. estimate and learn about
your running or riding ability (About VO2 Max. Estimates,
page 13).
Viewing Your Performance Condition
This feature requires wrist-based heart rate or a compatible
chest heart rate monitor.
1 Add Perform. Cond. to a data screen (Customizing the Data
Screens, page 23).
2 Go for a run or ride.
After 6 to 20 minutes, your performance condition appears.
3 Scroll to the data screen to view your performance condition
throughout the run or ride.
Lactate Threshold
Lactate threshold is the exercise intensity at which lactate (lactic
acid) starts to accumulate in the bloodstream. In running, it is
the estimated level of effort or pace. When a runner exceeds the
threshold, fatigue starts to increase at an accelerating rate. For
experienced runners, the threshold occurs at approximately 90%
of their maximum heart rate and between 10k and half-marathon
race pace. For average runners, the lactate threshold often
occurs well below 90% of maximum heart rate. Knowing your
lactate threshold can help you determine how hard to train or
when to push yourself during a race.
If you already know your lactate threshold heart rate value, you
can enter it in your user profile settings (Setting Your Heart Rate
Zones, page 16).
Performing a Guided Test to Determine Your Lactate
Threshold
This feature requires a Garmin chest heart rate monitor. Before
you can perform the guided test, you must put on a heart rate
monitor and pair it with your device (Pairing Your Wireless
Sensors, page 29).
The device uses your user profile information from the initial
setup and your VO2 max. estimate to estimate your lactate
threshold. The device will automatically detect your lactate
threshold during runs at a steady, high intensity with heart rate.
TIP: The device requires a few runs with a chest heart rate
monitor to get an accurate maximum heart rate value and VO2
max. estimate. If you are having trouble getting a lactate
threshold estimate, try manually lowering your maximum heart
rate value.
1 From the watch face, select START.
2 Select an outdoor running activity.
GPS is required to complete the test.
3 Hold MENU.
4 Select Training > Lactate Threshold Guided Test.
5 Start the timer, and follow the on-screen instructions.

After you begin your run, the device displays each step
duration, the target, and current heart rate data. A message
appears when the test is complete.
6 After you complete the guided test, stop the timer and save
the activity.
If this is your first lactate threshold estimate, the device
prompts you to update your heart rate zones based on your
lactate threshold heart rate. For each additional lactate
threshold estimate, the device prompts you to accept or
decline the estimate.
Getting Your FTP Estimate
Before you can get your functional threshold power (FTP)
estimate, you must pair a chest heart rate monitor and power
meter with your device (Pairing Your Wireless Sensors,
page 29), and you must get your VO2 max. estimate (Getting
Your VO2 Max. Estimate for Cycling, page 14).
The device uses your user profile information from the initial
setup and your VO2 max. estimate to estimate your FTP. The
device will automatically detect your FTP during rides at a
steady, high intensity with heart rate and power.
1 Select UP or DOWN to view the performance widget.
2 Select START to scroll through the performance

Fitness Goals
Knowing your heart rate zones can help you measure and
improve your fitness by understanding and applying these
principles.
• Your heart rate is a good measure of exercise intensity.
• Training in certain heart rate zones can help you improve
cardiovascular capacity and strength.
If you know your maximum heart rate, you can use the table
(Heart Rate Zone Calculations, page 17) to determine the best
heart rate zone for your fitness objectives.
If you do not know your maximum heart rate, use one of the
calculators available on the Internet. Some gyms and health
centers can provide a test that measures maximum heart rate.
The default maximum heart rate is 220 minus your age.
About Heart Rate Zones
Many athletes use heart rate zones to measure and increase
their cardiovascular strength and improve their level of fitness. A
heart rate zone is a set range of heartbeats per minute. The five
commonly accepted heart rate zones are numbered from 1 to 5
according to increasing intensity. Generally, heart rate zones are
calculated based on percentages of your maximum heart rate.
Setting Your Heart Rate Zones
The device uses your user profile information from the initial
setup to determine your default heart rate zones. You can set
separate heart rate zones for sport profiles, such as running,
cycling, and swimming. For the most accurate calorie data
during your activity, set your maximum heart rate. You can also
set each heart rate zone and enter your resting heart rate
manually. You can manually adjust your zones on the device or
using your Garmin Connect account.
