Garmin fenix 2 Looks Like Tactix But Adds Sports Features While Missing Some Special Ops Features

If sports measurement and navigation is your priority, then there is no better watch than the Garmin fenix 2 to get the job done.

Past News Releases


Tactix is popular with special ops and military personnel, especially those that require Jumpmaster software for parachute missions, says the Heart Rate Watch Company.

"Garmin fenix 2 is a new GPS sports watch with significantly more fitness features than the Tactix for running, swimming, triathlon and other sports," says Rusty Squire, President of the Heart Rate Watch Company. He adds, "It has all the same navigation features as the Tactix minus the Jumpmaster software, so this means service members need to make a choice regarding which features are most important."

Special Ops Requirements

"Obviously, if you need a curved, non-glare crystal, Jumpmaster software and a watch you can read with night vision goggles then the Garmin Tactix is still the watch to buy," says Squire. He adds, "Those features are features that the Garmin fenix 2 does not replicate although it looks a lot like the Tactix."

Fitness With Navigation - fenix 2

"Garmin fenix 2 has nearly every fitness feature and every navigation feature you could want for outdoor sports and adventure," says Squire. He adds, "About the only thing fenix 2 and Tactix do not have is storm alerts; although, they are both capable of showing a graph of trending barometric pressure."

"If sports measurement and navigation is your priority, then there is no better watch than the Garmin fenix 2 to get the job done," says Squire. He adds, "For specific sports, like triathlon, we might put a watch like the new Polar V800 ahead of it but for all-around use on the road, in the gym or the mountains the fenix 2 is tough to beat."

Making The Decision

"If you are in special ops, jump out of planes or conduct missions where being clandestine is of the utmost importance than Tactix is your watch," says Squire. He adds, "If you are in the military and need great navigation and fitness features, then the Garmin fenix 2 is your watch."

"Especially if you are a runner, there are no other watches in the world that can provide you the type of data that the Garmin fenix 2 can," says Squire.
