Garmin tactix 7 official line: awesome equipment, like the price

Few other smartwatches in the world have the hardware level and functional integrity of the new Garmin tactix 7, and it’s not hard to believe when reading the price tag. It is a new technological gem declining two versions beyond the standard, Pro and Pro Ballistics, both with solar charge and nylon straps instead of silicone, but with the latest, including Applied Ballistics Elite, a ballistic calculation software for long-range shooting.

While waiting for the Forerunner 955, protagonists of an indiscretion in the last hours, Garmin presents the tactical line 7 putting three terms before the others: technology, innovation and resilience, for a product that the company prefers not to place in the category of sports watches -like most of the offer- but in a separate one, that of multisport. However, it is such a versatile product that those who are not part of Garmin’s marketing people can easily define smart watches without making mistakes.

Garmin’s tactix 7 series – says the company that presents it – was born for extreme activities: that’s why its most obvious features respond in the first place to tactical and strategic needs. However, this smartwatch is still able to adapt to any context, from office life to wellness-seeking fitness activities to the most demanding sports sessions.

There are also several modes designed extreme activities. A couple:

  • Double position allows the simultaneous display of two coordinate systems on a single data screen
  • Jumpmaster guide those who do parachute jumps

then there is the barometer and the electronic compass which are integrated with others tactical functions such as waypoint projection, stealth mode, and compatibility with night vision systems, and the most popular avionics features built into tactix 7, with access to the Garmin Airport database and METAR weather reports / TAF, with the NEXRAD radar which detects precipitation and atmospheric movements and returns the data graphically.

To sum up, Gamin tactix 7 is not a product for everyone. As we said at the beginning, it is one of the most complete products on the market, so below you will find only some of its many features and functionalities: recovering them all would have been incompatible with the needs of publication.
