BEST Tactical Ogle Garmin Tactix Delta
What's going on guys black scout survival and today i'm out here doing a little rug because the temps have warmed up so it's a good day to do that and to do a little bit more testing on the garmin titans delta a lot of you guys recommended that most of you know if you're new to the channel um we're doing survival technical and.
Military watch like review series so we're talking about smart watches automatics dive watches you name it survival tactical related there was an overwhelming number of you that said we need to test out the garmin tactics delta and honestly i'm so glad you did now this is a primarily a tactical or.
Military you know design watcher but you know it covers everything so it's not just for the the operator now it does have some you know spy quintessential spy features skydiving night vision mode uh stealth mode and a kill switch that will disable the watch completely in case you get captured so.
They do have um you know various things like that uh and tactical features however it covers pretty much everything it's a lifestyle watch it's a fitness watch outdoor watch and it excels in every one of those spectrums honestly this is one of the best smart watches that i've ever.
Used you know as far as being a gps you know fitness tracker um this is a complete computer on your wrist it can work outside of the phone like you don't need the phone and this is the solar sapphire so the crystal sapphire so it's not going to get scratched and it's a solar capability watch so in.
Like a grid now situation where a lot of people ask this question you can turn this to time only mode and it can stay alive just off the sun so essentially the watch will last forever let's take a closer look at all the features and everything that goes into making this one of the best watches that i've ever seen let's first.
Talk about the build quality of the garmin tactics delta we've got a sapphire crystal here dome crystal so it's not going to scratch sapphire's come on you know very high-end watches typically you're also going to notice this 24-hour bezel around here this is a dlc coated bezel so it's going to be you know.
Diamond like carbon so it's not going to scratch the body is fiber reinforced polymer case so it's extremely lightweight it's 98 grams so even though it's a big case you know has a ton of wrist presence it's not going to you know weigh you down the button arrangement you got three on the.
Left side and two on the right and it's pretty much the same going along all the other garmin watches so once you become familiar with the button arrangement you're going to you know basically any model you go to it's going to be uh similar on all the models so you're going to get used to that so after you learn the.
Interface it's going to be easy to you know function run the different functions and as well as you can also customize the arrangements of it if you'd like you know so if you want to change some things out so let's talk about the straps here you get a nylon strap which i really like really.
Comfortable it has the quick fit technology so you press this down to take it off so you can quickly change out the bands now it comes with a nylon as well as a rubber strap so here's the rubber here and you just basically snap that on and you can buy other colors and stuff.
Like that um to run with you know so if you're going to be like doing you know some amphibious stuff you may want to wear the rubber um or if you just like it you know it's.
Comfortable the rubber is pretty much the same as the instinct here very very comfortable one of the most comfortable rubber straps i've felt so the tactics has also got 100 meter water resistant so you know obviously good for a tactical watch because you.
Know you're probably going to get in the water get wet get rained on stuff like that let's talk about the battery because that's usually the downfall of a lot of smart watches out there this one has the obviously solar charging capability so you know for extended use it's going to extend that for a few more days.
You also have the usb plug-in so right here it comes with a cable and you can you know obviously charge it as you need to and this basically is going to really depend on how much you use the watch um or how long or how many features or functions you're using the watch on a regular basis right so.
You can get up to about 21 days and then you know plus three days with the solar charging capability and they also have a battery saver mode that you can pretty much get up to 80 days with the watch that is on a single use there's 120 hours use in like complete gps mode so if you're like constantly using this thing to navigate you have.
About 120 hours straight use and also you can carry you know charging battery backups and stuff like that to help if you're using this for a primary navigation tool now let's talk about the tactical features the stuff that you know pretty much makes the the watch cool what i.
Like about it you know the jane james bond features you know this this would be an essential what i would consider an essential piece of gear for you know military and law enforcement you have mvg mode for night vision so you can use it where the illumination here so when you hit that illumination.
It will only work under night vision you know this is good for obviously when you're running nods and also it won't give away your position like if you you know turn in that light pops on so that that'll you know protect you obviously as well so we have jump master mode here and we can choose heiho high altitude.
High out opening high altitude low opening and then static line parachuting so you have this will help you measure your altitude of a skydive plus navigation to a lz once you you know pull your under canopy obviously good for airborne unit guys or regular recreational skydivers you also have obviously navigation so you.
Have utm and mgrs so dual position format for you know military navigation and military grid reference systems you also have a kill switch and we'll wipe the watch in 10 seconds so you know you're obviously you know you get captured or something like that you have to essentially kill the watch because.
All the information on there you can kill that watch in in 10 seconds with the kill switch there's also a stealth mode which cuts off any of your wireless connectivity so that's two-fold obviously escaping invasion and it also if you don't want to give um unwanted data to a smart watch or smart watch notification so.
You're not going to get like a phone call on the watch you know or a text or something like that that's going to vibrate if you're like about to you know kick in a door and go into a room or something like that the tactical mode is one of my personal favorites when you hit it you know obviously it'll give your your pace the.
Time of day all that sort of stuff your elevation it'll give you a map it'll give you your coordinates all that kind of stuff you can also hit this into a man overboard so it can drop a waypoint to mark something if you're like moving past you know like a man overboard situation or if you just want to quick mark a waypoint.
For a point of reference and speaking of maps and navigation this thing has gps glonass and galileo satellite systems there's maps you know obviously independent from your cell phone which uh you know most smart watches have to have like a.
Smart watch or cell phone connection to to run that sort of stuff when you're looking at an apple watch or something like that this has it independent so you know you can also have turn by turn navigation so if you put in a uh you know a area you want to go to you put in those coordinates and it'll.
Essentially give you a turn by turn direction to navigate to that area there's topographical data climbing tracking and uh ski maps loaded on here as well as you know just public land boundaries and stuff like that you also get other pertinent data like weather you get sunset and and on here.
You can see i've got sunset sunrise all that kind of information on here as well as tracking in a time in other time zones you have a compass and altimeter like i said sunset weather so you get all those other things to go along with you know when you're navigating so that type of information could be.
Pertinent or critical to your mission in in for mission planning it even has talking about you know it has the ski uh information stuff like that you can bike and all that kind of stuff but it has golf maps here so um you can essentially load any golf course.
That's close to you and it has all those different maps on there so we're just going to pull up one now and you can kind of see so the golf map here so very cool so it's not just a tactical watch you know you have a lot of other features for living you know you know various recreation or venture.
Lifestyle one of the biggest things you know obviously is fitness when you're when you're looking at uh you know the tactical lifestyle and stuff like that fitness tracking like a lot of smart watches do this watch excels at fitness tracking it can track almost every kind of.
Workout you know desire pretty much anything you want to do and it can do it so we'll quickly run run through here we have run we have bike we have pool swim we have strength cardio bike golf and then many more you can go down here and there's even more.
Um one cool thing that i i thought was amazing on here if you go to the strength you have actual workouts here so here we'll go through the so 10 reps renegade row so you'll start this will be like your workout you do your 10 reps renegade row rest repeat.
Easy bar overhead triceps and just go through actual workouts that are in the watch we'll click the back to basics let's view the workout it even has animated instructions of the workout so we have a deadlift here you know so you can go through 15 reps and do bench press so it'll have animated.
So you can see and then follow along and actually do the workouts i don't think any other smart watch on the planet has this type of type of functionality i took this watch on runs and what i liked about it is that it will gauge your input of your workout has on your training so.
It'll you know tell what kind of impact um each workout has in your training it'll talk about how much time you need to rest in between workouts you know as vo2 measuring so you can you know obviously check if you're improving on that your body.
Battery sleep tracking has some of the best sleep tracking there is i'm talking about uh it breaks down when you're in deep sleep rem sleep all that sort of stuff incredible as far as that it will detect what lifts you're doing if you're if you're doing strength.
Training so if you're doing a bicep curl for example it's going to count your repetition sets and all that kind of stuff and then put that data on the app and the app is is like one of the biggest things about the watches it's truly incredible i can't even believe that that the app is so detailed like if you're training.
Fitness-wise this is one of the best watches that is out there in my opinion so talking about the body battery in your recovery it talks about how much every day like how much rest you need throughout the day or it basis how much rest you got based on how much output you have throughout the day like i said body.
Battery sleep tracking calorie step tracking heart rate you can see this green line right here this is your my heart rate and it'll count your heart rate and i keep a you know a rolling gauge of that throughout the day really the watch is essentially a complete training tool i mean you can do pretty much.
Any type of workout and gauge your pro progress and and the process you're doing all along whether it's you know cardio endurance type stuff lifting you know everything you're doing you know adventure sports you can put all that down in there and it compiles all that and gives you feedback.
And basically how you can customize your workouts to progress you can also download music on here which is incredible you know so you can run the watch like i said independently from carrying a phone it has all this data here here's accomplishing papa quick compass.
If you want to with altimeter and bravo readings you know your uh sunrise sunset um you know your your 5k runs and things like that your stat training status like to today i didn't work out so there's no status um last activity your steps taken um.
Your health stats pulse ox data you know notifications or you know typical smart watch stuff and then your music controls so the watch email has all these other cool features it will act essentially as a smart watch um you know you can you know get calls and emails all that kind of stuff you know.
If you have any kind of apps you're running those will come through on here like if you have like a ring doorbell or something like that that will come through here you can customize the screens this is actually a custom screens from connect iq which i highly recommend i like this.
Screen a lot because this has tons of data on it you know your um altitude your day date all that kind of stuff sunrise sunset time um calories how many floors steps your activity all that kind of stuff we can go through here and.
Change watch faces and this is another connect iq here which is kind of like an analog slash digital kind of that g-shock look um here's another one of my favorites here um you know i really did this it has you know moon phase um all that kind of stuff the battery.
Your emails blood pressure i'm sorry your beats per minute day date all that kind of stuff the how many miles you've walked and then you have just standard screens here that come on the watch in the connect iq a lot of the screens are free so.
You can scroll through here and just you know choose whatever kind of screen you want i really like that one because it's like a very tactical screen here i think that's super cool so yeah my thoughts um i think this is one of the best smart watches that i've ever seen um you know.
It's basically a full blown computer gps fitness tracker everything on your wrist you know if if james bond had a watch that wasn't an omega it'd be this you can see the sensors here popping off but amazing watch so much so that we decided to sell garments um this.
You know you guys recommended this um because we did the review of the instinct here we actually sell the instincts too so we have those on site but so much so we we reviewed this because you guys recommended and then you guys recommended it for us to review this one.
After i reviewed this i was like man this is so good we've got to sell these that's that's how good this thing is so highly recommended i didn't you know go through all the technical i guess features of the watch i just want to give you a you know no bs kind of what the watch does who is it for it.
Really is for everybody this is the one smart watch to have one thing you see that little arrow there is running your your gmt around the bezel right there you see set little arrow there i just forgot to mention that but very cool i love it you can pretty much set this display up however.
You want i set mine up like this with the green for the uh blood pressure i'm sorry i keep saying blood pressure beats per minute there for heart rate because i thought it looked cool but you can customize it to your liking and like i said we got these on website.
Now so you can check those out but i love i love the watch i think it's a great piece of kit in the military i wish i'd had this years ago this would have been a great tool great asset to have you know to help with training help doing you know exercises operations stuff like that.
This would have been a great tool to have thanks so much for recommending this i was so impressed by this watch that we became a garmin dealer the solar instinct tactical the instinct tactical the solar sapphire loved them great watches some of the best that i've ever used so uh i wanted to.
Get involved and sell them ourselves so we became a dealer wouldn't it we wouldn't have done that if it had not been for you guys recommending so really appreciate that and as always guys stay frosty stay aware stay strapped take care.
