Garmin International has announced the launch of Instinct Tactical Edition, an outdoor GPS smartwatch with tactical functionality.
The product builds on the company’s Instinct series, adding various enhanced features such as night-vision compatibility mode, Jumpmaster, dual-position GPS formatting, preloaded tactical activity, and waypoint projection.
Dan Bartel, Garmin’s vice president of global consumer sales, said: “The Instinct series has quickly proven itself to be the watch for individuals who need a piece of equipment as tough as the conditions they face.
“Incorporating tactical features from the Garmin tactix series, the Instinct Tactical Edition combines the best of both product lines to provide tactical and multisport features for people who spend their time outdoors and demand a watch they can depend on in even the most challenging terrains.”
The product includes multiple features specific to tactical operations including Jumpmaster and tactical preloaded activities, projected waypoints, dual-position GPS formatting, and night-vision compatibility.
It features a battery life of up to 14 days in smartwatch mode, up to 16 hours in GPS mode, and up to 40 hours in UltraTrac battery saver mode, and is available for a suggested retail price of $349.99.
The Instinct Tactical Edition is the latest solution from Garmin’s expanding outdoor segment, which focuses on developing technologies and innovations to enhance users’ outdoor experiences.
