QUALITY BY DESIGN
Tested to MIL-STD-810, the rugged yet sophisticated design features a large 1.4” display.
TOUCHSCREEN AND BUTTONS
Traditional button controls that work in any environment are matched with a responsive new touchscreen interface for quick access to selections and functions.

AB SYNAPSE™ – GARMIN APP
Easily create and send custom profiles to your Garmin device, including full access to the Applied Ballistics® Bullet Library, which contains more than 1,200 custom measured bullets.
BUILT-IN GREEN OR WHITE FLASHLIGHT
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.
NIGHT VISION CAPABILITY
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.
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.
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.

Get environmental data readings from your compatible weather meter and ranges from your compatible range finder sent directly to the Applied Ballistics solver.
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 more3.
Subscribe to Outdoor Maps+ for premium mapping content, such as satellite imagery and enhanced topo maps, downloaded directly to your watch.
BUILT-IN SPORTS APPS
Use preloaded activity profiles for trail running, swimming, running, biking, hiking, rowing, skiing, golfing, surfing, indoor climbing and more.

DAILY SUGGESTED WORKOUT
View your entire week of daily suggested workouts, which adapt after every run or ride to match your performance and recovery as well as the races coming up in your Garmin Connect™ smartphone app calendar.
VISUAL RACE PREDICTOR
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.
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.
A first-of-its-kind PacePro feature helps keep you on pace with grade-adjusted guidance as you run a course.
Don’t run out of steam before the activity is over. Understand how to adjust your pace over varying terrain to perform according to your plan.
View advanced training metrics that include running dynamics, heat- and altitude-adjusted VO2 max, trail run VO2 max, recovery advisor and more4.
Use this data to track and manage your exertion — and help avoid overexerting at the start of your run or bike.
RECOVERY TIME ADVISOR
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.
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.
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.
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® camera5. So you can watch them later and see how you did with your Surfline Sessions subscription.
BACKCOUNTRY SKIING AND SNOWBOARDING
These activity profiles now automatically distinguish between descending and climbing. So you can hit start on your first run and leave your smartwatch tracking all day long.
XC SKI DYNAMICS
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.
Get ready for your next race with training tips, personalized daily suggested workouts and completion time predictions based on course details, weather and performance.
Using new indicators such as HRV status, your recent exercise history and performance, get insight into your overall effort — and whether you’re training productively, peaking or strained.
From the moment you wake up, get a readiness score based on your sleep quality, recovery, training load and more, so you can determine whether it’s a good day to go hard — or take it easy.
Gain a deeper understanding of your overall health, training and recovery through heart rate variability while you sleep, based on technology developed by our Firstbeat Analytics™ team.
