Night vision capability, stealth mode, kill switch
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. Easily sync your location with others by seeing both the universal transverse mercator and military grid reference system on the same screen. Set and save remote geo positions to be used later for navigation.
Jumpmaster, hunt, and more
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. Track your hunt, and mark hunt-specific waypoints directly on your watch. Navigate straight to a location or waypoint in the worldwide aeronautical database. Or choose the Nearest function to activate a path to a nearby airport. Access aviation weather, including NEXRAD radar, METARs and TAFs, to see winds, visibility, barometric pressure and more(6). View how various settings and sensors impact your watch’s battery life, so you can make battery-extending changes on the fly.
Built in sports apps
Use preloaded activity profiles for trail running, swimming, running, biking, hiking, rowing, skiing, golfing, surfing, indoor climbing and more. Stay informed with backcountry ski profile when you’re in the snow. This preloaded profile helps distinguish between skiing and climbing. It shows metrics specific to either ascent or descent. When paired with the HRM-Pro™ chest strap (sold separately), the ski power metric helps measure the actual exercise load of your cross-country workouts.
Surf, MTB, HIIT and more
Get ready to catch some waves. This Tactix watch works with the Surfline Sessions™ feature, which creates a video of every wave you ride in front of a Surfline® camera4. So you can watch them later and see how you did with your Surfline Sessions subscription. 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. The HIIT activity profile tracks your high-intensity interval training workouts, including AMRAP, EMOM, Tabata and custom. Set the number of rounds, work/rest intervals and more.
Metrics that matter
Based on your running history and overall fitness level, this feature provides an estimate of what your pace could be for the distance you want to run. Trend data shows how your training is having an impact over time. A first-of-its-kind PacePro feature helps keep you on pace with grade-adjusted guidance as you run a course. Use the ClimbPro ascent planner on downloaded courses to see real-time information on your current and upcoming climbs, including gradient, distance and elevation gain — as well as descents and flats. View advanced training metrics that include running dynamics, heat- and altitude-adjusted VO2 max, trail running adjustment, recovery advisor and more.
Real-time Stamina and recovery advisor
Use this data to track and manage your exertion — and help avoid overexerting at the start of your run or bike. After each workout, recovery time lets you know when you’ll be ready for another hard workout. It even accounts for training intensity and factors such as stress, daily activity and sleep. For training guidance that takes you and your fitness level into account, get daily run and ride recommendations based on your current training load and training status.
Multi-Band GNSS, Topo maps
Access multiple global navigation satellite systems (GPS, GLONASS, GALILEO). Get access to multiple frequencies sent by navigation satellites for improved position accuracy in areas where GNSS signals are reflected, weak or typically don't penetrate. tactix 7 comes preloaded with TopoActive maps from your region and gives you free access to download additional maps from around the world to keep your explorations on track. Use built-in Wi-Fi® connectivity to easily load and update maps and software without using a computer. To help guide your way in low-light conditions, a built-in multi-LED flashlight provides quick access to a bright, steady beam in either green or white light. Optional display of federal public land boundaries on topographical maps helps you know that you’re venturing where you’re supposed to be.
Golf course, Skiview maps and POI
Access full-color CourseView maps for more than 42,000 golf courses around the world, and get button targeting and the PlaysLike Distance feature. Take on the slopes with preloaded SkiView maps, and view run names and difficulty ratings for more than 2,000 ski resorts worldwide. Get at-a-glance awareness for selected POI checkpoints ahead. View performance metrics, split times and distance/elevation — plus a summary of key trail points coming up.
Know your body better
Optical heart rate technology gauges activity intensity as well as heart rate variability to calculate your stress level. It also tracks underwater without a heart rate strap. For altitude acclimation or sleep monitoring, a Pulse Ox sensor2 uses light beams at your wrist to gauge how well your body is absorbing oxygen. Get a full breakdown of your light, deep and REM sleep stages. View it all on a dedicated widget that includes your sleep score and insights. 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.
Respiration, hydration tracking and more
See how you’re breathing throughout the day, during sleep and during breathwork and yoga activities.. Log daily fluid intake as a reminder to stay hydrated. When auto goal is enabled, you’ll even see estimated sweat loss after an activity, and your goal will adjust accordingly. Log a 2-minute session to record key stats, including heart rate2, heart rate variability, Pulse Ox4, respiration and stress. Then generate a report with those stats via the Garmin Connect™ app on your compatible smartphone to share.
Receive emails, texts and alerts right on your watch when paired with a compatible device. Breeze through checkout lines with Garmin Pay contactless payment solution through participating providers. Download songs plus playlists from your Spotify, Deezer or Amazon Music accounts (subscription may be required). Use wireless headphones (sold separately) for phone-free listening. When your watch and phone are paired, your live location can be sent to your contacts manually or — during select outdoor activities — automatically with built-in incident detection(6).
