Garmin Tactix Bravo GPS Watch
Garmin has been leading the way in high-performance GPS based watches and their latest product release has confirmed this. The Tactix Bravo GPS Watch is the watch that would be worn from team members of the Special Operation Forces. The Tactix boasts a number of features far beyond the typical ABC (Altitude, Barometer, and Compass). While it does include these features it also includes TracBack which navigates you back to your starting point the same way you came. Its built-in sensors provide information on heading, elevation and weather changes. If you are planning any sort of tactical jump it can also help with that. Users in the air can utilize the Jumpmaster software for three jump types: HAHO, HALO, and Static. It also has a dedicated tactical activity profile with a dual-position mode that can simultaneously display two sets of coordinate systems on a single data screen.
If you are utilizing these features we are going to assume you will be exercising and training on a regular basis. Well, the Tactix can help you there too. The VO2 max estimator crunches data, including your running speed, beats per minute and heart rate variability to estimate the maximum volume of oxygen you can consume per minute. Additionally, athletes get advanced running dynamics such as stride length, ground contact time balance, and vertical ratio plus physiological measurements such as lactate threshold, stress score and performance condition.
