Garmin announced the expansion of its solar charging technology to its Solar range of smartwatches with the new tactix Delta – Solar Edition. It is the fourth generation of the tactix family, which is developed on the fēnix series platform, building on the success of Garmin’s solar charging adventure watches, the fēnix 6 Pro Solar series and Instinct Solar series. The tactix Delta – Solar Edition allows Filipinos to “Do What They Love Longer” through significantly increased battery life1 and new purpose-built functionality including mountain biking, climbing, skiing and golf activities.
Built to military standards (MIL-STD-810), the tactix Delta – Solar Edition uses solar charging to extend battery life and Power Manager mode to provide up to 21 days indoors and up to 24 days with sufficient solar exposure.
Mission-ready features on the tactix Delta – Solar Edition include night vision capability to effortlessly switch between daytime and nighttime view with a screen that can be read by night vision goggles, stealth mode, which disables location sharing and wireless connectivity, and a kill switch to wipe all user memory. The rugged, sophisticated design features an always-on 1.4” display, scratch-resistant sapphire lens, black DLC-coated steel bezel, black PVD-coated steel rear cover and all-new military-inspired black tactical nylon QuickFit band with reinforced stitching and exposed black metal hardware.
Ever reliable features
The tactix Delta – Solar Edition’s features include Advanced Sleep Monitoring, which provides a detailed breakdown of user’s light, deep and REM sleep stages as well as Pulse Ox2, to gauge how well an individual’s body is absorbing oxygen, and Body Battery to optimize body energy reserves through health monitoring metrics and respiration data. This can be viewed on a dedicated widget that includes your stress score and sleep insights. Out of the box, it includes topographic maps for outdoor adventures, ski maps for over 2,000 ski resorts worldwide and over 41,000 golf courses.
With specialized tactical features as well as mapping, music, advanced training and the same smart features from the fēnix 6 family, the tactix Delta – Solar Edition is built for demanding field use and everyday wear.
