tactix 7 - Pro EditionSolar-powered tactical GPS watch with nylon band
BUILT FOR THE MISSION
Featuring a Power Sapphire™ solar charging lens, traditional buttons and touchscreen display, this multisport GPS smartwatch offers specialised tactical features as well as mapping, music, advanced training features and more.
Get a charge from the sunlight, so your smartwatch can go as long as you can in the field.
Don’t be limited by battery life. Get up to 37 days of battery life1 in smartwatch mode.
Ruggedly built with a premium design that is built to military standards (MIL-STD-810).
When it gets dark, the built-in LED flashlight helps keep you going.
Carry out field ops undetected with tactical-specific features such as night vision compatibility.
Navigate your world with multi-GNSS satellite reference and outdoor sensors.
Get up to 37 days of battery life in smartwatch mode with solar charging enabled1 — and up to 122 hours in GPS mode with solar charging enabled5.
QUALITY BY DESIGN
Tested to U.S. military standards (MIL-STD-810), the rugged yet sophisticated design features a large 1.4" display.
TOUCHSCREEN AND BUTTONS
Traditional button controls that work in any environment are matched with a responsive new touchscreen interface for quick access to selections and functions.
BUILT-IN GREEN OR WHITE FLASHLIGHT
To help guide your way in low-light conditions, a built-in multi-LED flashlight provides quick access to a bright, steady beam in either green or white light.
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.
Easily sync your location with others by seeing both the universal transverse mercator and military grid reference system on the same screen.
Set and save remote geo positions to be used later for navigation.
Navigate straight to a location or waypoint in the worldwide aeronautical database. Or choose the Nearest function to activate a path to a nearby airport.
Access aviation weather, including NEXRAD radar, METARs and TAFs, to see winds, visibility, barometric pressure and more1.
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.
Track your hunt, and mark hunt-specific waypoints directly on your watch.
BUILT-IN SPORTS APPS
Use preloaded activity profiles for trail running, swimming, running, biking, hiking, rowing, skiing, golfing, surfing, indoor climbing and more.
This activity profile tracks your high-intensity interval training workouts, including AMRAP, EMOM, Tabata and custom. Set the number of rounds, work/rest intervals and more.
DAILY WORKOUT SUGGESTIONS
For training guidance that takes you and your fitness level into account, get daily run and ride recommendations based on your current training load and training status.
VISUAL RACE PREDICTOR
Based on your running history and overall fitness level, this feature provides an estimate of what your pace could be for the distance you want to run. Trend data shows how your training is having an impact over time.
Get at-a-glance awareness for selected POI checkpoints ahead. View performance metrics, split times and distance/elevation — plus a summary of key trail points coming up.
A first-of-its-kind PacePro feature helps keep you on pace with grade-adjusted guidance as you run a course.
View advanced training metrics that include running dynamics, heat- and altitude-adjusted VO2 max, trail run VO2 max, recovery advisor and more3.
Use this data to track and manage your exertion — and help avoid overexerting at the start of your run or bike.
RECOVERY TIME ADVISOR
After each workout, recovery time lets you know when you’ll be ready for another hard workout. It even accounts for training intensity and factors such as stress, daily activity and sleep.
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.
Use the ClimbPro ascent planner on downloaded courses to see real-time information on your current and upcoming climbs, including gradient, distance and elevation gain — as well as descents and flats.
SURF READY FEATURES
Get ready to catch some waves. This tactix watch works with the Surfline Sessions™ feature, which creates a video of every wave you ride in front of a Surfline® camera4. So you can watch them later and see how you did with your Surfline Sessions subscription.
Stay informed when you’re in the snow. This preloaded profile helps distinguish between skiing and climbing. It shows metrics specific to either ascent or descent.
XC SKI DYNAMICS
When paired with the HRM-Pro™ chest strap (sold separately), the ski power metric helps measure the actual exercise load of your cross-country workouts.
MULTI-BAND GNSS SUPPORT
Access multiple global navigation satellite systems (GPS, GLONASS, Galileo). Get access to multiple frequencies sent by navigation satellites for improved position accuracy in areas where GNSS signals are reflected, weak or typically don't penetrate.
Navigate your next trail with ABC sensors, including an altimeter for elevation data, barometer to monitor weather and 3-axis electronic compass.
GOLF COURSE MAPS
Access full-colour CourseView maps for more than 42,000 golf courses around the world, and get button targeting and the PlaysLike Distance feature.
Take on the slopes with preloaded SkiView maps, and view run names and difficulty ratings for more than 2,000 ski resorts worldwide.
MULTICONTINENT TOPO MAPS
tactix® 7 – Pro Edition comes preloaded with TopoActive maps from your region and gives you free access to download additional maps from around the world to keep your explorations on track. Use built-in Wi-Fi® connectivity to easily load and update maps and software without using a computer.
PUBLIC LAND BOUNDARIES
Optional display of federal public land boundaries on topographical maps helps you know that you’re venturing where you’re supposed to be.
View how various settings and sensors impact your watch’s battery life, so you can make battery-extending changes on the fly.
WRIST-BASED HEART RATE
Optical heart rate technology gauges activity intensity as well as heart rate variability to calculate your stress level. It also tracks underwater without a heart rate strap.
PULSE OX SENSOR
For altitude acclimation or sleep monitoring, a Pulse Ox6 sensor uses light beams at your wrist to gauge how well your body is absorbing oxygen.
SLEEP SCORE AND ADVANCED SLEEP MONITORING
Get a full breakdown of your light, deep and REM sleep stages. View it all on a dedicated widget that includes your sleep score and insights.
BODY BATTERY ENERGY MONITORING
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.
See how you’re breathing throughout the day, during sleep, and during breathwork and yoga activities.
HEALTH SNAPSHOT FEATURE
Log a 2-minute session to record key stats, including heart rate3, heart rate variability, Pulse Ox6, respiration and stress. Then generate a report with those stats via the Garmin Connect™ app on your compatible smartphone to share.
Log daily fluid intake as a reminder to stay hydrated. When auto goal is enabled, you’ll even see estimated sweat loss after an activity, and your goal will adjust accordingly.
Receive emails, texts and alerts right on your watch when paired with a compatible device.
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.
GARMIN PAY CONTACTLESS PAYMENTS
Breeze through checkout lines with Garmin Pay contactless payment solution through participating providers.
SAFETY AND TRACKING FEATURES
When your watch and phone are paired, your live location can be sent to your contacts manually or — during select outdoor activities — automatically with built-in incident detection7.
