QUALITY BY DESIGN
Tested to U.S. military standards (MIL-STD-810), the rugged yet sophisticated design features a large 1.4-inch display that’s 36% larger than previous tactix models.
This smartwatch features a rugged, sophisticated design, black DLC coated steel bezel and a scratch-resistant sapphire glass that houses solar-harvesting technology.
NIGHT VISION CAPABILITY
Easily switch between daytime view and nighttime view with a screen that can be read by night vision goggles.
While keeping the watch operational, stealth mode stops storing and sharing your GPS position and disables wireless connectivity and communication.
If security becomes an issue, the kill switch wipes the device of all user memory.
This feature works to calculate high-altitude release points according to military guidelines and helps to navigate you to your objective once you’ve jumped.
Easily sync your location with others by seeing both the universal transverse mercator (UTM) and military grid reference system (MGRS) on the same screen.
Set and save remote geo positions to be used later for navigation. MULTI-GNSS SUPPORT Access multiple global navigation satellite systems (GPS, GLONASS and Galileo) to track in more challenging environments than GPS alone.
Navigate your next trail with ABC sensors, including an altimeter for elevation data, barometer to monitor weather and three-axis electronic compass.
Trek far and wide between recharges. Expedition mode, an ultralow-powered GPS reference, lasts for weeks.
TOPOACTIVE EUROPE AND SKI MAPS
Use TopoActive Europe maps to navigate your adventures. View run names and difficulty ratings for 2,000 worldwide ski resorts.
Use ClimbPro ascent planner on downloaded courses to see real-time information on your current and upcoming climbs, including gradient, distance and elevation gain.
Access full-colour CourseView maps for more than 41,000 golf courses around the world, and get button targeting and the PlaysLike Distance feature.
Follow a route or course with help from turn-by-turn directions which let you know ahead of time when the next turn is coming.
Enter a distance you want to travel, and get suggested routes that will bring you back to your starting point. Trendline™ popularity routing helps you find the best local paths.
Get up to 21 days of battery life while indoors or up to 24 days when solar charging in smartwatch mode. In GPS mode, get 15 hours indoors or 16 hours when solar charging.
View how various settings and sensors impact your watch’s battery life, so you can make battery-extending changes on the fly. SPORTS APPS Use preloaded activity profiles for trail running, swimming, running, biking, hiking, rowing, skiing, golfing, surfing, indoor climbing and more.
Track the details of every ride with mountain biking metrics plus specialised grit and flow measurements that rate trail difficulty and how smoothly you descend, giving you a score to beat next time.
Get ready to catch some waves. tactix Delta – Solar Edition works with Surfline Sessions™, which creates a video of every wave you ride in front of a Surfline® camera, so you can watch them later and see how you did.
Stay informed when you’re in the snow. This preloaded profile can distinguish between skiing and climbing. It automatically shows metrics specific to either ascent or descent.
This watch features easy-to-follow, animated cardio, strength, yoga and Pilates workouts you can view on the watch screen. Choose from preloaded animated workouts, or download more from our Garmin Connect™ online community.
View advanced training metrics that include running dynamics, recovery advisor and more. Even estimate your heat- and altitude-adjusted VO2 max.
A first-of-its-kind PacePro feature helps keep you on pace with grade-adjusted guidance as you run a course.
This widget shows your current elevation, acclimated elevation and correlated Pulse Ox, heart rate and respiration rate, so you can see how you’re holding up to the current elevation.
WRIST-BASED HEART RATE
Get heart rate data along with alerts if your heart rate stays too high or too low while you’re at rest. Gauge how hard your heart is working during activities, even underwater.
PULSE OX SENSOR
For altitude acclimation or sleep monitoring, a Pulse Ox sensor uses light beams at your wrist to gauge how well your body is absorbing oxygen.
See how you’re breathing throughout the day, during sleep and during breathwork and yoga activities.
BODY BATTERY™ ENERGY MONITOR
Optimise your body’s energy reserves, using heart rate variability, stress, sleep and other data to gauge when you’re ready to be active or when you may need to rest.
Receive emails, texts and alerts right on your watch when paired with a compatible device. MUSIC APPS Store up to 2,000 songs, or access streaming apps from your compatible services including Spotify®, Deezer and Amazon Music, and listen through headphones with Bluetooth® technology.
Breeze through checkout lines with Garmin Pay contactless payment solution through participating providers.
SAFETY AND TRACKING FEATURES
If you feel unsafe or if your watch senses that an incident occurred, assistance and incident detection features5 send your location to emergency contacts.
