Garmin Tactix GPS Navigator Watch - Unisex



Show Description

This stealthy GPS wrist navigator won’t give your position away to wildlife or paintball adversaries. A domed lens and matte finish reduce sun reflections, while the reversed display keeps your night-vision gear glare-free during nocturnal photography. (The tactix doubles as a remote control for Garmin VIRB cameras.) Add an optional HRM strap or speed and cadence sensor and the tactix becomes a drill sergeant who’ll keep you fighting fit.
