Garmin introduces the tactix 7 series , a new class of tactical smartwatches. Using a new 5-button interface and touch screen, the tactix 7 series offers dedicated tactical functions, training functions, wrist navigation and comprehensive monitoring of health and physical activity. Prepared for day and night operation, the tactix 7 smartwatch now features an always-on reflective display compatible with night-vision goggles and a dedicated multi-LED flashlight for low visibility conditions. With robust battery life on all three models, including improved solar charging on select tactix 7 devices, users can focus on everything from HIIT training to HALO jumps and worry less about recharging.
Created to endure
The robust tactix 7 series is made according to the military standard (MIL-STD-810) and water resistant up to 10,000 Pa 1 . The new metal button protections with reinforced metal eyelets come with a black DLC titanium bezel and back cover, as well as black tactical nylon QuickFit straps on the tactix 7 Pro series, to make the watch as durable as anyone who wears it. Available in three models, all tactix 7 watches have a large 1.4 ”screen covered with a scratch-resistant sapphire lens. Users can be sure as the sapphire is considered one of the toughest materials in the world and thus ensures that the tactix 7 smartwatch screen is preserved even in the toughest conditions.
A novelty in the tactix 7 series of watches is the user interface with buttons and a dual touch screen. Traditional button controls work in all circumstances and are paired with a new touch screen for direct access to dials and functions. A powerful 5-key interface and touch screen allows for quick and intuitive use of topographic maps, offering a reliable picture of the current situation offline.
To take the lead during night operations, the tactix 7 watch offers a new built-in multi-LED flashlight that provides quick access to strong, steady light in white or green. Users will find green light useful in maintaining the natural night vision of their eyes.
Tactix 7 Series users can use stealth mode, which collects distances and biometric data without recording location data during physical activity or operations. Using this security feature ensures that users can use Tactix 7 - and even transfer recorded data - without worrying about revealing location information via popular mobile apps. By not recording device location information, stealth mode also protects operational security in the event that the device is lost.
The tactix 7 series brings a significant increase in battery life to the robust family of smartwatches; tactix 7 - Standard Edition provides up to four weeks of battery life in smartwatch mode and - thanks to advances in solar technology - Garmin can provide up to 37 days of battery life in smartwatch mode 2
Service-ready functionsEquipped with dedicated functions for tactical operations, the tactix 7 watch includes night-vision compatibility mode, Jumpmaster, dual-position GPS formatting, projected waypoints and the ability to delete all user data in seconds if needed. During air operations, individuals can use the Jumpmaster for three types of jumps: HAHO, HALO and Static . Set the clock to dual positioning mode and it will simultaneously display two sets of coordinate systems on one screen, such as MGRS and latitude / longitude. When night mode is activated, the screen backlight settings will be reduced to a level that will not interfere with the night vision goggles function.
Daily support with advanced training
Using multi-band GNSS support, users can access multiple frequencies sent by navigation satellites for improved position accuracy in areas where GNSS signals are reflected, weak, or usually non-penetrating. All tactix 7 devices come with pre-installed multi-continental Topo maps from user regions and provide free access to download additional maps from around the world. For recreational use, the tactix 7 series comes with pre-installed public border maps, SkiView maps and more than 42,000 color golf courses worldwide.
Customers who need enhanced solutions offered by Applied Ballistics (AB) will be pleased to know that tactix 7 - Pro Ballistics Edition is now integrating with the AB ecosystem, including the AB Synapse app and full sensor integration.
The Tactix 7 Series is a continuous innovation in Garmin smartwatch technology and is now available with an initial suggested retail price of $ 8,299.99.
