The new tactical GPS multisport smartwatch Garmin tactix 7 is the right companion for every mission, whether in the gym, hiking, or parachute landing. The robust 51mm watch, tested according to military standard MIL-STD-810G, is water-resistant to 10 ATM with its scratch-resistant sapphire crystal, black titanium bezel with DLC coating, and titanium case back with PVD coating and is therefore up to any challenge. The 1.4'' transflective display, which can also be read with night vision goggles, and a special multi-LED flashlight are ideal for day and night use. To make operation even more user-friendly, In addition to the well-known 5-button operation that works in any environment, Garmin also integrates a fast-reacting touch display. This allows the extensive health, training, and navigation functions to be controlled more intuitively. Thanks to special tactical and aviation operations, the watch should not be missing in any tactical equipment. The impressive battery life, which is even longer in the solar models, allows you to concentrate fully on your activity without wasting time on charging.
Thanks to global satellite systems, the Garmin tactix 7 series brings adventurers safely to any destination (GPS, GLONASS, GALILEO). In addition, thanks to multi-frequency reception, the watch enables precise route recording even in areas where the GPS signals are reflected or weak - such as in urban canyons or mountain valleys. ABC sensors ensure even better orientation and exact navigation on the preinstalled TopoActive Europe maps. Map material for other regions from all over the world can be downloaded directly onto the watch free of charge via WLAN. Ski and golf fans will also be delighted with the preinstalled SkiView maps, including piste information, cross-country ski trails, and more than 42,000 full-color golf course maps.
The tactix 7 series is ready for all-day or night operations. Last but not least, the night vision mode and the integrated LED flashlight, which provides a better perspective and safety with its green and white light, support this. Both functions can also be used with night vision goggles. The dual position format (UTM and MRGS) also ensures reliable situational awareness. The Garmin tactix 7 series is equipped with stealth mode to ensure movement under the radar, which no longer stores or shares the GPS position and disables wireless connectivity and communication. If the worst comes to the worst, the entire user memory can be deleted using the kill switch function at the push of a button.
Skydivers will appreciate the Jumpmaster feature, which assists in navigating to the target after deploying the parachute following military guidelines. In addition, pilots benefit from the direct-to-navigation function, which can be used to navigate directly to an airport in the worldwide aviation database or to the nearest airport. In addition, they can access flight weather to see current conditions right on their wrist.
The tactix 7 Pro Solar Ballistic also has an Applied Ballistic function that calculates the corrections for long shots. It is integrated into the AB ecosystem and compatible with Garmin's AB Synapse app.
Designed for all-day use, the tactix 7 series comes with Garmin's total 24/7 health and fitness features.

More than 60 preinstalled sports and outdoor apps also accompany you in your sporting activities - from running and mountain biking to HIIT and tennis to windsurfing and kitesurfing.

Using LiveTrack, the position can also be shared with others in real-time via a connected smartphone.
