Tactical GPS Navigator + ABC Watch

The field-ready tactix is a high-sensitivity GPS navigator plus ABC watch packed with features for training, exploring and more. Inside, it’s an altimeter, barometer, 3-axis compass and tracker with 1,000 waypoints, 10,000 track points and TracBack capabilities. Outside, it is waterproof (to 50 meters), matte black and non-reflective with a green LED backlight that won't flare out night vision.

Plan, Navigate, Track

tactix lets you create routes, record up to 1,000 waypoints (such as rally points, LZs or potential campsites) and record GPS bread crumb trails on the move (tracklogs). Navigate to coordinates, along a track or route, toward waypoints or along any other selected bearing. The TracBack feature guides you back along a previously recorded tracklog so you can easily find your way to the end of a tactical training course, campsite, trailhead or safety of a vehicle, even in challenging conditions.

Plan trips and share adventures with friends and family using BaseCamp and BaseCamp Mobile. tactix is equipped with both ANT+ capabilities and Bluetooth to wirelessly share tracks, waypoints and routes with other compatible Garmin devices or smartphones.

Altimeter, Barometer and Compass

tactix is equipped with ABC sensors (altimeter, barometer and compass) to provide relevant real-time information. The built-in altimeter provides elevation data to accurately monitor ascent and descent, while the barometer can be used to predict weather changes by showing short-term trends in air pressure. The 3-axis electronic compass keeps your bearing whether you're moving or not.

tactix auto-calibrates its ABC sensors using its GPS receiver and also auto sets the time based on location. For an extremely accurate temperature reading, pair it with our tempe external temperature sensor.

Measure Performance

tactix provides real-time performance data, such as distance, pace, cadence and calories, helping you keep track of your progress during and after your adventures. tactix is compatible with our heart rate monitor, speed/cadence bike sensor and foot pod for indoor or outdoor use.

Built to Endure the Roughest Conditions

tactix combines a strong housing to survive shocks with a mineral glass lens to resist scratching. It has a large LCD display with a green LED backlight and a robust polyurethane wristband. It's waterproof to 50 meters and has a battery life of up to 50 hours in GPS mode (depends on settings) and up to 5 weeks in watch mode.

Tactical-inspired, Field-ready

The all-black, rugged and durable design was inspired by the strict requirements mandated by tactical units for the gear they use in the field. Its scratch-resistant, curved lens is rugged and prevents reflection. The U.S. Tides feature and Jumpmaster mode are invaluable to amphibious and airborne operations. The green backlight won't compromise your position or your vision (and won’t flare out night-vision goggles).

More Than an Ordinary Watch

tactix includes sun/moon information and a hunt/fish calendar in addition to basic watch functions such as alarms, tones, vibration alerts, a timer, stopwatch and world clock with the ability to display several times zones at once. It even controls VIRB and VIRB Elite action cameras.

The Garmin Tactix GPS Navigator + ABC Watch is designed to meet the strict requirements for tactical units and special operations forces alike. A scratch-resistant, curved lens is ultra-durable and prevents reflection. The Negative mode LCD display and green LED backlight won't flare out night-vision goggles—allowing you to gather valuable intel without blowing your cover. The U.S. Tide and Jumpmaster modes are ideal for those in amphibious and airborne operations. Jumpmaster mode provides experienced skydivers, particularly those in military operations, with a calculated high altitude release point, and it can even auto-detect when you've jumped to begin navigating toward a desired impact point using the barometer and electronic compass.
The watch itself is fully functional with time, date, alarm, timer, chronograph, chimes, and vibration settings. The built-in GPS creates routes, waypoints, and bread crumb trails (tracklogs). Navigate to coordinates, along a track, or toward waypoints with the GPS and 3-axis digital compass. TracBack mode retraces previous tracklogs, allowing you to navigate tactical training courses or find a trailhead, even in dark and challenging conditions. A sun/moon chart and hunt/fish calendar also make this watch a valuable tool for serious outdoor enthusiasts, hunters, and fisherman.
Along with the tactical and GPS functionality, this watch measures real-time performance stats for athletes such as trail runners and bikers. Recording distance, pace, cadence, and calories burnt, this watch will eagerly accompany a wide variety of outdoor exercise activities. The Tactix will sync with Garmin's heart rate monitor, speed/cadence bike sensor, and foot pod (sold separately) for further exercise functionality. Additionally, this watch controls Garmin's VIRB and VIRB Elite action cameras for action-sports enthusiasts and budding videographers.
When you've finished your tactical-ops mission, afternoon hike, wilderness expedition, hunting trip, or outdoor exercise, plug this watch into a compatible PC or Mac to upload GPS information and share adventures with friends and family via Garmin BaseCamp and BaseCamp Mobile Software (download online or via App Store for free). The Tactix is both ANT+ and Bluetooth-enabled for wireless sharing with compatible Garmin devices and smartphones.
