Garmin’s fourth-generation tactix smartwatch might just be Navy SEAL team worthy. How? In addition to the usual stuff (night vision mode and dual grid coordinates) that makes it a tactical smartwatch, it also lets you go stealth by disabling storing and sharing of your location.
Furthermore, in the event that you are captured, you can swiftly erase all user memory (the watch’s, not you) at a flip of a switch. Yes. It indeed has a kill switch just for that. Now, that is a serious tactical smartwatch destined for Navy SEAL.
Though, realistically speaking, the battery life may not be long enough to sustain long operations with GPS on. It offers you up to 60 hours on GPS, but if you can do without location, the smartwatch could last up to 21 days.
Key features include domed sapphire crystal, diamond-like Carbon (DLC) coated steel, fiber-reinforced polymer with metal rear cover, knurled buttons, water resistance to 10 ATM (100 meters or 330 feet), a 1.4-inch sunlight-friendly transflective MIP display, 32 GB onboard storage, and a myriad of sensors including Garmin Elevate Wrist Heart Rate Monitor.
Out of the box, tactix Delta is preloaded with topographic mapping and advanced navigation features. Looking through the rich feature list, you may think Garmin is pitching the hardware to Navy SEAL team members, but truth is, Garmin wants anyone who’s willing to part with $899.99 to buy it.
After all, it is also a capable fitness tracker, music player, and the aforementioned topographic maps happen to include ski maps to 2,000+ ski resorts around the world and 41,000 golf courses. Get it from Garmin.com.
