Over the last two years, Garmin has introduced a growing number of rugged, military and outdoor-focused smartwatches like the MARQ, Tactix Charlie, and Instinct Tactical Edition. Though, the GPS purveyor-turned-wearable-tech outfit has now rolled out its most sophisticated and advanced mil-spec smartwatch ever with the all-new tactix Delta.

Constructed around a fiber-reinforced polymer case with knurled buttons, a PVD-coated steel rear cover, and DLC-coated steel bezel, the tactix Delta is water-resistant to 300 feet and built to meet MIL-STD-810. Noteworthy elements include a 1.4” display sitting under a scratch-resistant domed sapphire lens, silicone strap, GPS (including GLONASS and Galileo) and turn-by-turn directions, topographical (and ski) maps, built-in altimeter, barometer, and tri-axis electronic compass, wrist heart rate monitoring, and a battery offering 21 days of regular use, or up to 80 days in battery saver mode. Making the watch all the more conducive to armed forces applications is its host of military-focused features including dual-grid coordinates, a Jumpmaster mode, a Stealth Mode that disables wireless connectivity, communication, and stops sharing your GPS coordinates, and a “Kill Switch” that wipes the device of all user memory and data. It can even be viewed while wearing night-vision goggles. Available now, the Garmin tactix Delta is priced at $900.
