In order to make outdoor activities more informative and data-rich, Garmin India announced the Tactical edition of its GPS-enabled Instinct smartwatch in India. Built for the true outdoor tech enthusiast, the Tactical edition supports users with premium features like Jumpmaster, Dual Position Format, Night Vision, and Stealth Mode along with other preloaded tactical activities.
“Garmin Instinct marked the first offering from Garmin India in the lifestyle segment when it was introduced and we are excited to see how it has become the preferred partner of all the adventure seekers. Now, the Instinct – Tactical Edition comes laden with added tactical features including Jumpmaster, Dual Position Format, Night Vision & Stealth Mode, to further provide more in-depth data and support to the users while exploring outdoor rugged interests,” said Ali Rizvi, Director, Garmin India.
Garmin Instinct Tactical comes with built-in navigation sensors, multiple global navigation satellite systems, GPS, GLONASS, and Galileo, to support in tracking more challenging environments than relying solely on GPS. It monitors heart rate, activity, and stress, providing preloaded activity profiles for training and allow users to stay connected with smart notifications.
According to the company, “Users can enjoy peace of mind in the outdoors as the battery life of Instinct Tactical lasts 14 days in smartwatch mode, up to 16 hours in GPS mode, up to 40 hours in UltraTrac battery saver mode, so all activities will be recorded on the device.”
This rugged, reliable outdoor GPS watch is built to the U.S. military standard 810G for thermal, shock, and water resistance (rated to 100 meters). The fiber-reinforced polymer case adds strength and durability, and the chemically strengthened, scratch-resistant display is readable in bright sunlight. The “night vision mode,” reduces backlight settings to a level that doesn’t interfere with the operation of night vision goggles.
Moreover, GPS, GLONASS, and Galileo satellite network capability tracks in more challenging environments than GPS alone. The built-in three-axis compass and barometric altimeter help you keep your bearings. Take the guesswork out of your return journey by using the TracBack feature to navigate the same route back to start.
Furthermore, the Garmin Instinct Tactical smartwatch enables the Stealth Mode to stop storing and sharing GPS position and disable wireless connectivity and communication.
