Featuring  a solar-charging lens, this tactical GPS smartwatch offers specialized  tactical features as well as mapping, music, advanced training features  and more.

Get a charge from the sunlight, so your smartwatch can go as long as you can in the field.  

Ruggedly built and ready for the mission, this is built to military standard (MIL-STD-810).   

Carry out field ops undetected with tactical-specific features such as night vision compatibility.  

Navigate your world with multi-GNSS support and outdoor sensors. 

It’s as smart as it is tough. With payments, music and notifications at your wrist. 

Don’t be limited by battery life. Get up to 24 days of battery life1 in smartwatch mode. 


Tested  to U.S. military standards (MIL-STD-810), the rugged yet sophisticated  design features a large 1.4” display that’s 36% larger than previous  tactix models. 


This  smartwatch features a rugged, sophisticated design, black DLC coated  steel bezel and a scratch-resistant sapphire glass that houses  solar-harvesting technology. 

Equipped to execute your every objective.  


Easily switch between daytime view and nighttime view with a screen that can be read by night vision goggles.  


While  keeping the watch operational, stealth mode stops storing and sharing  your GPS position and disables wireless connectivity and communication. 


If security becomes an issue, the kill switch wipes the device of all user memory. 


This  feature works to calculate high-altitude release points according to  military guidelines and helps to navigate you to your objective once  you’ve jumped. 


Dual-format GPS coordinates and built-in topographic maps offer unparalleled situational awareness. 


Set and save remote geo positions to be used later for navigation.  

Features for every kind of adventure. 


Access  multiple global navigation satellite systems (GPS, GLONASS and Galileo)  to track in more challenging environments than GPS alone. 


Navigate  your next trail with ABC sensors, including an altimeter for elevation  data, barometer to monitor weather and 3-axis electronic compass. 


Trek far and wide between recharges. Expedition mode, an ultralow-powered GPS reference, lasts for weeks. 


Optional  display of public land boundaries on topographical maps helps you know  what you’re venturing and where you’re supposed to be.  


Use topographical maps to navigate your adventures. View run names and difficulty ratings for 2,000 worldwide ski resorts.   


Use ClimbPro  ascent planner on downloaded courses to see real-time information on  your  current and upcoming climbs, including gradient, distance and  elevation gain. 


Access full-color CourseView maps for more than 41,000 golf courses around the world, and get button targeting and the PlaysLike Distance feature. 


Follow a route or course with help from turn-by-turn directions, which let you know ahead of time when the next turn is coming. 


Enter a distance you want to travel, and get suggested routes that will bring you back to your starting point. Trendline™ popularity routing helps you find the best local paths. 


Get up to 21 days of battery life while indoors or up to 24 days when solar charging in smartwatch mode1. In GPS mode, get 15 hours indoors or 16 hours when solar charging2. 


View how various settings and sensors impact your watch’s battery life, so you can make battery-extending changes on the fly. 

Train harder and smarter on a whole new level.  


Use  preloaded activity profiles for trail running, swimming, running,  biking, hiking, rowing, skiing, golfing, surfing, indoor climbing and  more. 


Track  the details of every ride with mountain biking metrics plus specialized  grit and flow measurements that rate trail difficulty and how smoothly  you descend, giving you a score to beat next time. 


Get ready to catch some waves. tactix Delta Solar works with Surfline Sessions™, which creates a video of every wave you ride in front of a Surfline® camera, so you can watch them later and see how you did. 


Stay  informed when you’re in the snow. This preloaded profile can  distinguish between skiing and climbing. It automatically shows metrics  specific to either ascent or descent.  


This watch features easy-to-follow, animated cardio, strength, yoga and Pilates workouts you can view on the watch screen. 


View advanced training metrics that include running dynamics, heat- and altitude-adjusted VO2 max, recovery advisor and more3. 


A first-of-its-kind PacePro feature helps keep you on pace with grade-adjusted guidance as you run a course. 


This widget shows your current elevation, acclimated elevation and correlated Pulse Ox4, heart rate3 and respiration rate, so you can see how you’re holding up to the current elevation. 


Get heart rate data3  along with alerts if your heart rate stays too high or too low while  you’re at rest. Gauge how hard your heart is working during activities,  even underwater. 


For altitude acclimation or sleep monitoring, a Pulse Ox4 sensor uses light beams at your wrist to gauge how well your body is absorbing oxygen. 


See how you’re breathing throughout the day, during sleep and during breathwork and yoga activities. 


Optimize  your body’s energy reserves, using heart rate variability, stress,  sleep and other data to gauge when you’re ready to be active or when you  may need to rest. 


Get a full breakdown of your light, deep and REM sleep stages as well as Pulse Ox2 and respiration data. View it all on a dedicated widget that includes your stress score and other insights. 

More features for your life beyond the field.
