Garmin’s Tactix Delta is the most recent in its lineup of rugged smartwatches developed to military requirements. New for the Tactix’s 4th generation is a big 1.4-inch display similar to what we saw on the Fenix 6 in 2015, along with a power supervisor feature, which provides you battery life predictions based on which settings you turn on and off.
New for this variation of the Tactix is stealth mode, which completely disables keeping and sharing of your info, and a kill switch that can be set to eliminate all gadget memory. These aren’t entirely brand-new features– they separately appeared in the Impulse Tactical Edition and Marq Leader watches respectively– but thinking about the security threats GPS tracking in specific can sometimes have, it makes good sense for Garmin to likewise include them in this military-focused variety.
In addition to the brand-new privacy functions, Garmin included a variety of “tactical functions” that are making a return from its previous Tactix smartwatches. There’s Jumpmaster mode, which is created to help guide skydivers to their objective, and dual-position GPS, which can display two sets of coordinate systems on a single screen.
The Garmin Tactix Delta can store up to 2,000 tunes, supports Garmin Pay, and can be set to get alerts from a paired smartwatch. Garmin states you’ll get 21 days of battery life when the device is in smartwatch mode, or 80 days in battery saver watch mode.
The Garmin Tactix Delta is offered now for $89999
