Garmin tactix Bravo

Thursday, February 25th, 2016


The Garmin tactix Bravo is first and foremost a watch, and a good looking one at that. But that’s not all that’s going on with the tactix. It’s a GPS-enabled multi-sport training watch that offers some great features for militray and LE users. For instance, it processes both US GPS and Russian GLONASS signals meaning you’ve got a better shot at knowing where you are in a GPS-denied environment. Additionally, the tactix offers apps such as Jumpmaster which makes data all the more usable. Also, GPS features like track-back allow you to find your way back to a point of origin and the GPS data is augmented by altimeter, barometer and compass features.

Here are a few highlights:

    2-inch high-resolution, sunlight-readable Garmin Chroma Display with high-strength domed sapphire lens, capable of switching between 2 modes: day use and night vision goggle compatibility
    Omni-directional stainless steel EXO antenna, with GPS/GLONASS satellite reception, has the ability to track in more challenging environments
    All-black, rugged and durable design inspired by the requirements of tactical gear intended for use in the field
    Black PVD-coated stainless steel buttons, knurled start/stop button, rear case plate and screws
    High-sensitivity GPS/GLONASS satellite reception has the ability to track in more challenging environments than GPS alone
    Dual-mode operation optimizes the sunlight-readable display for day use or night vision goggle compatibility

The tactix is powered by a rechargeable lithium-ion battery. It can last up to 20 hours on a single charge in GPS training mode, 50 hours in Ultra-Trac mode and six weeks in watch mode. It features a PVD coated Black case with nylon strap or silicone band. Finally, there are lots of apps available for the tactix, with more coming all of the time.

For my friends interested in purchasing Garmin products, I always recommend Strohman Enterprise. They’ll take great care of you, offering preferred pricing to Law Enforcement, Military, and Government Customers.

Warrior East – Garmin

Thursday, July 10th, 2014

Garmin has a couple of items that will be of interest to SSD readers.

First up is the tactix, a tactical training GPS watch. Sure, it’s a watch, but it’s also a GPS device that allows you to drop up to 10,000 breadcrumb points and 1,000 TracBack points meaning it vectors you to return to the point of origin. The tactix also offers barometric altimeter and electronic 3D compass. As a watch the battery lasts for 5 weeks, with sensors, you’re at 3 weeks. When you enable GPS, it goes to 50 hours. But, you can recharge via USB. Waterproof to 50m, night vision readable and integrates preloaded tidal data and Jumpmaster software.


Second is the VIRB Elite. It’s a GPS and wi-fi enabled HD action camera. The VIRB offers true HD at 1080p with a 16MP CMOS sensor. It also interfaces with an iOS or Android app that allows you to control it remotely. In addition to GPS stamp, you can also record barometer and G-load data.


As always, I prefer to purchase my Garmin products for personal use I go to www.strohmanenterprise.com. Unit and agencies contact www.ADSinc.com.

Garmin – Tactix Tactical Ops GPS Watch

Tuesday, December 10th, 2013


The Garmin tactix Tactical Ops GPS watch is a rugged time piece that packs a lot of features into its frame. The case is made from stainless steel, PVD-coated in a non-reflective Black, and is waterproof up to 50 meters. The face consists of a non-reflective, scratch-resistant, curved mineral glass. The negative mode liquid crystal display is designed for stealth operation, and the Green LED backlight is NVD compatible. The wrist straps are made of polyurethane, and are also Black.

The tactix’s high-sensitivity GPS automatically calibrates the on-board altimeter, barometer and 3-axis compass, in addition to the time and date in multiple time zones. The GPS feature allows the user to create routes, record up to 1000 waypoints, 10,000 track points, and the TrackBack features guides the user back along a previously recorded tracklog. The tactix has ANT+ and Bluetooth capabilities to share tracks, waypoints, and routes with other compatible Garmin devices or smartphones. The tactix features a preloaded world wide basemap.

The tactix functions as a recording tool for training. It can provide real-time performance data, including distance, pace, cadence, and calories burnt. It’s compatible with Garmin’s heart rate monitor, speed/cadence bike sensor, and foot pod. Additionally, the tactix features U.S. tidal data and the Garmin jumpmaster software for amphibious and airborne operations.

The tactix is powered by a rechargeable lithium-ion battery. It can last up to 50 hours on a single charge in GPS mode, three weeks in sensor mode, and five weeks in watch mode.

I’ve been wearing the tactix around for a few days, and I like it. Setup was quick and simple, and once I got used to the buttons and menu navigation it became easy to switch between the different functions. At first, it didn’t seem that I was getting the listed battery life out of the watch, so I left it on an extended charge and now it’s still going strong a couple of days later, with barely a dent in the battery meter. It’s also worth mentioning that despite the styling, this isn’t a “big watch”. It’s lightweight and isn’t uncomfortable to wear at all.

The Garmin tactix is currently available from www.strohmanenterprise.com. Run by a USMC Veteran, Strohman takes good care of military and LE personnel.
