Garmin tactix 7 Military Tactical Watches

The Garmin tactix 7 series includes 3 models: the tactix 7 standard, tactix 7 Pro, and tactix 7 Pro — Ballistics Edition. And this 2022 lineup of advanced Garmin tactical GPS watches brings several new features to your next mission.

Garmin tactix 7 watches now feature a powerful responsive touchscreen—along with traditional button operation. The powerful 5-button and touchscreen interface enables quick and intuitive engagement with the topographical maps, offering confident “off-grid” situational awareness.

Both civilian and service aviators will benefit from the tactix 7 Series Direct-To Navigation feature, which allows users to navigate straight to an airport in the world aeronautical database or use the “Nearest” function to activate a path to a nearby airport.

Thanks to advancement in solar-technology, this Garmin series of tactical watches offers improved battery life over the previous tactix Delta series.

Additionally, each tactix 7 GPS smartwatch includes a built-in dimmable white or green LED flashlight. You'll find the green light useful in maintaining your eyes’ natural night vision.

Take advantage of multi-GNSS and multi-band support, providing the highest level of Garmin's positional accuracy.

To the fitness and training front, these premium tactix 7 GPS watches add Real-Time Stamina and a Recovery Time Advisor.
