Garmin has announced the expansion of its solar charging technology to its Solar range of smartwatches. The Tactix Delta – Solar Edition 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 users to continue to “Do What They Love Longer” through significantly increased battery life 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 night time 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.
With specialised 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.
