Product Overview


  • Sunlight-readable Garmin Chroma Display with high-strength domed sapphire lens

The Tactix Bravo multisport training GPS watch combines specialized tactical functionality with smart features for fitness training and outdoor navigation, all in a stylish, everyday watch. The rugged and durable design is built for the tactical environment, and dual-mode operation optimizes the sunlight-readable display for day use or night vision goggle compatibility. The watch features a protective stainless steel bezel and buttons, and reinforced housing. A sunlight-visible, high-resolution color Chroma display with LED backlight lets you access your data in any light. User-activated “night vision mode” reduces backlight settings to a level that doesn't interfere with the operation of night vision goggles. The Tactix is water-rated to 100 meters and has a battery life of up to 50 hours in UltraTrac battery saver mode, 20 hours in GPS mode and up to 3 weeks in smartwatch mode.


Tactical features include Jumpmaster activity, projected waypoints and dual-format position format GPS Coordinate Data Page that supports MGRS, Degrees, Minutes, Seconds and more. The watch provides comprehensive navigation and tracking functionalities to guide you on and off the beaten path using GPS plus ABC (altimeter, barometer and compass). The built-in altimeter provides elevation data to accurately monitor ascent and descent, while the barometer can be used to predict weather changes by showing short-term trends in air pressure. The 3-axis electronic compass keeps your bearing whether you’re moving or not. Tactix Bravo auto-calibrates its ABC sensors using its GPS receiver and also auto sets the time based on location. TracBack feature navigates you back to your starting point the same way you came. Its built-in sensors provide information on heading, elevation and weather changes. It records a GPS track log, creating a “bread crumb trail” as you move. It also allows you to mark locations, such as a start/finish line, course checkpoint or a campsite, vehicle or other point of interest. With Tactix Bravo, you can create and follow courses as well. It is also equipped with both ANT+ wireless connectivity and Bluetooth and has smart capabilities to wirelessly share locations, routes and geocaches.


The Tactix Bravo is packed with training features to tell you about your form and fitness. The first is the VO2 max estimator. When used with a heart rate monitor (not included), Tactix crunches data, including your running speed, beats per minute and heart rate variability to estimate the maximum volume of oxygen you can consume per minute. Track changes to your VO2 max to see your fitness gains and to compare with your peers. Other fitness metrics include recovery advisor with a recovery timer and recovery check, plus a race predictor, which estimates your ideal finish time based on your current VO2 max number.


Customize your watch face, add data fields and get apps and widgets that provide information at a glance. Smart notifications let you receive emails, texts and alerts right on your watch, even if you're on the trail. Tactix receives the wireless signal from a compatible smartphone and lets you know you have a message by displaying the text on its own screen whenever you’re ready to read it. Other connected features include automatic upload to Garmin Connect online fitness community, live tracking and social media sharing through Garmin Connect and Garmin Connect Mobile applications. Remotely control both the music from your phone and your VIRB XE action camera. Find My Phone and Find My Watch capabilities included. Activity tracking counts daily steps, calories burned and stairs climbed; sleep tracking monitors your sleep patterns for additional health insights.
