Update:Garmin recently added a series of solar-powered smartwatches to their list of GPS adventure smartwatches of which the Tactix Delta Solar is one including the Fenix 6S Pro Solar and 6X Pro Solar. The Tactix Delta solar has a slightly longer battery life than Tactix Delta.
Garmin has also included the features below to the Tactix Delta and Fenix 6 Series models.
- Surfline Sessions which creates a video of every wave you ride in front of a Surfline camera, so you can watch them later and see how you did
- Climb activity profile that tracks indoor climbing metrics.
- Bouldering activity profile which is similar to indoor climb profile but for bouldering.
The Tactix Delta is the latest smartwatch to join the rich lineup of Garmin smartwatches. It succeeds the Tactix Charlie, and as you’d expect, it’s a sleeker and finer smartwatch than its predecessor and comes with new features such as higher 32GB, longer battery life and more activity tracking features with pulse ox. sensor added. This page shows the full specifications of the Tactix Delta and its features as well as the Pros and Cons.
