Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, 11th May 2022 – Garmin Malaysia today launched the Garmin tactix 7 Pro, a premium tactical smartwatch built for even the most demanding of situations through a newly integrated metallic 5-button interface, responsive touch screen and dedicated tactical, training and performance features. The Garmin tactix 7 pro features a new NVG-compatible reflective display and a multi-LED flashlight.
Built to endure
The Garmin tactix 7 Pro is built to a military standard (MIL-STD-810) and water-rated to 10 ATM1. The new metal button guards with reinforced metal lugs are paired with a black DLC coated titanium bezel and rear cover, as well as black tactical nylon QuickFit bands. The Garmin tactix 7 Pro features a large 1.4” display with a scratch-resistant sapphire lens, ensuring the tactix 7 Pro display remains operationally ready in harsh environments.
New to this smartwatch is a dual touch screen and button user interface. The traditional button controls work in any environment and are matched with a responsive new touchscreen for direct access to selections and functions.
To lead the way during night operations, the Garmin tactix 7 Pro also provides a new built-in multi-LED flashlight providing quick access to a bright, steady light in either white or a dedicated green.
The Garmin tactix 7 Pro allows users to activate stealth mode, which collects distances traveled and bio metric data without recording location data, to physically train or use during operations. Leveraging this security feature ensures that those who use the Garmin tactix 7 Pro can even upload logged data without the concerns of revealing location information through popular mobile training apps. By not recording location data on the device, activating stealth mode also safeguards operational security.
Packed with other features for tactical operations, the Garmin tactix 7 Pro includes night-vision goggle compatibility mode, Jumpmaster, dual-position GPS formatting, projected waypoints, and the ability to erase all user data in a matter of seconds should the need arise. During airborne operations, individuals can use Jumpmaster for three jump types: HAHO, HALO, and Static.
Set the watch to dual-positioning mode and it will simultaneously display two sets of coordinate systems, such as MGRS and latitude/longitude, on a single data screen. When the night-vision mode is activated, the backlight settings of the screen will reduce to a level that won’t interfere with the function of night-vision goggles.
Both civilian and service aviators will benefit from the tactix 7 Pro’s 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. Additionally, pilots can also access aviation weather, including NEXRAD radar, METARs and TAFs, to see winds, visibility, barometric pressure and more directly on their tactix 7 unit2.
Designed for all-day use, the Garmin tactix 7 Pro features Garmin’s 24/7 health and wellness tools including Pulse Ox, wrist-based heart rate, respiration and stress tracking, plus Garmin wellness insights such as Body Battery™, Fitness Age and Sleep Score with Advanced Sleep Monitoring3. The tactix 7 Pro is also compatible with other Garmin devices including satellite communicators such as inReach® Mini 254.
Using multi-band GNSS support, customers can access multiple frequencies sent by navigation satellites for improved position accuracy in areas where GNSS signals are reflected, weak or typically don’t penetrate. The tactix 7 Pro comes preloaded with multi-continent Topo maps from the customer’s regions and provides free access to download additional maps from around the world. For recreational uses, the tactix 7 Pro comes preloaded with Public Land Boundaries Maps, SkiView Maps, and more than 42,000 full-color golf courses around the world.
The tactix 7 Pro provides up to four weeks of battery life in smartwatch mode and – thanks to advancement in solar technology – tactix 7 Pro can provide up to 37 days of battery life in smartwatch mode.
