Garmin International Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), the global leader in satellite navigation, today announced tactix, a rugged high-sensitivity GPS navigator and ABC watch inspired by the requirements of Law Enforcement and Police Special Operations. Built for training, exploring, and more, this field-ready wristwatch boasts an altimeter, barometer, 3-axis compass, and extensive tracking capabilities for precise navigation in the field. tactix is waterproof to 50 meters, and can run up to 50 hours in GPS mode on one charge. It comes preloaded with tide data (U.S. units only) and Jumpmaster software, which could prove invaluable for amphibious and airborne operations. It has a stealth, matte black design with a curved lens and green backlight, so it won’t flare out with night vision devices or compromise the user’s position. tactix can withstand even the most extreme elements and situations, but is sleek enough to be worn as an everyday timepiece.

“Being able to go hands free while still having access to accurate information on barometric pressure, elevation, and GPS position could prove to be invaluable in the field,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin’s vice president of worldwide sales. “tactix packs Garmin’s trusted navigation technology into a GPS watch that both soldiers and civilians can rely on. Plus, the preloaded tide data and Jumpmaster software, along with its stealth design, really sets tactix apart from other wrist worn GPS devices.”

tactix is built to endure the roughest conditions. It combines a strong housing with a forged stainless steel rear case to survive shock and impact, and has a scratch-resistant, curved mineral glass lens that reduces “hot spots” from sun reflections. tactix features a large LCD display with a negative mode liquid crystal display for low light conditions. The black background and green LED backlight won’t flare out with night vision devices. The preloaded tide data and Jumpmaster software are important features for both military operations and recreational activities. It has a bold, all-black design (bezel, screen, buttons and straps) that is stealthy, yet stylish. tactix is waterproof to 50 meters, and has a battery life of up to 50 hours in UltraTrac mode, 16 hours in full GPS mode, and five weeks in watch mode. Basic watch functions include alarms, tones, vibration alerts, timer, stopwatch and world clock with the ability to display several time zones, military time, and zulu time at once.
