Garmin Tactix are the best military watches of the year for 2014 according to the test staff at the Heart Rate Watch Company.
"Tactix had 95% of the guts of the Garmin fenix and added a few additional features like curved non-glare glass and a backlight that involved less glare," says Rusty Squire, President of the Heart Rate Watch Company. He adds, "Having Jumpmaster and being able to handle Street Maps like the fenix could are also a big plus and in our initial testing there are no moisture issues at all."
Navigation To Sports
"Garmin Tactix includes trackback navigation, can mark up to 1,000 waypoints and 10,000 track points, plus if you add a heart rate monitor it can adapt to any type of fitness routine quite well including pace and distance data," says Squire. He adds, "I've been using the watch for alpine skiing this winter and it works great plus the maps of everywhere I have been for the day are quite good."
Having Jumpmaster software for parachuting, non-glare glass and a backlight that doesn't flare out with night vision goggles brings the Tactix up a notch for the special ops type user according to Squire.
"Tide charts, sunrise/sunset, moonrise/moonset and virtually all the data that a special ops person could want," says Squire. He adds, "You can even use a Garmin Tempe to get precise temperature readings and connect to a Garmin VIRB Elite action camera with waterproof case and control it from the Tactix."
"The combination of various Garmin products these days sets up the opportunity for some real James Bond-type stuff," says Squire. He adds, "It is so cool to see this technology openly available."

He adds, "If you are a first time customer simply use our first-time customer coupon code of ftc, which is a single use coupon entitling you to 11% off any purchase."
