Love this watch!

I use this watch everyday for work and working out.

I love everything about this watch. It's very functional and can be used to track many different activities through the preset profiles.. I.E. running, hiking, mountaineering, etc. You can also set your own profile.

The watch is very customizable to the user's preference. For instance the way the clock is displayed and second counter could be changed to a bunch of different formats to add a personal touch.

As of this writing, Garmin put out a beta patch that allows your cell phone to sync with the watch using the bluetooth. For instances if someone where to text you, the watch would display the message along with an alarm to notifiy you.

There are so many functions to this watch. Look up DC Rainmaker Tactix on the web and get a very indepth review.

Ready for War

It's about time that Garmin came out with a GPS watch aimed at Military users. I'm very familiar with using the foretrex 401 during military operations, but the Tactix really sets the standard. Although slightly thicker than your average ABC watch (think Suunto or Pathfinder) it is far less bulky or obvious on your wrist than the big green brick that is the Foretrex. It also has some great military specific features like vibration alerts and a low illumination reverse display. The ability to display your MGRS and Lat Long position on the same screen is also great. Fast and stable satellite acquisition and very good battery life make this a winner in my book.

Performs well, but not w/o some flaws

This is the 3rd Garmin watch I've owned, the previous being the Forerunner 405 and 310xt. I use these watches for my triathlon training. The ANT technology is awesome. I've found that the Tactix takes a little longer to pick up signals than my Forerunner 310xt. As for the battery life, I usually have to recharge once a week. There are a couple of issues I have with Garmin watches, the first being the glass. The glass on my 310xt shattered while setting up for my last fell and hit the cement. As for my Tactix, after owning it less than a month, there's already a scratch on the glass. Now, if you're marketing a product for triathletes/military, you'd expect better quality. Second, sometimes when I plug the watch in to my computer, the computer doesn't recognize it, but will charge the watch. Maybe, because the watch is new to the market, some updates may improve things.
