The ultra-rugged, all-black watch features routable colour TopoActive Europe maps, wrist-based heart rate, fitness training metrics, night vision goggle compatibility and more. Its DLC coated titanium bezel maximises resistance to abrasion and corrosion.

Map Your Route to Success

Whether you’re on training manoeuvres or just out for a jog, the tactix Charlie watch’s built-in mapping and navigation features help keep you oriented and on course. Full-colour TopoActive Europe mapping comes preloaded, with map data optimised for at-a-glance navigation and location tracking. GPS and GLONASS satellite network reception allows you to track in more challenging environments than GPS alone. Plus, you can use your watch to create and follow courses as well as mark locations for such things as your campsite, vehicle, course checkpoints or other points of interest.

Navigate the Outdoors Your Way

In addition to map-based guidance, your tactix watch also provides a set of ABC (altimeter, barometer and compass) sensors to guide you on or off the beaten path. The built-in altimeter provides elevation data to accurately monitor ascent and descent for activities such as hiking, while the tilt-compensated three-axis electronic compass keeps your bearing — whether you’re moving or not.

Built-in Tactical Features

The watch’s tactical features include Jumpmaster activity, projected waypoints and a dual-format GPS coordinate data page that supports display of MGRS, degrees/minutes/seconds and more.

Monitor Your Performance, Training and Recovery

For serious physical training and fitness activities, tactix Charlie offers advanced performance monitoring capabilities. Training status is a new tool that automatically evaluates your recent exercise history and performance indicators to let you know if you’re training productively, peaking or overreaching. The new anaerobic training effect metric opens a window of insight to a critical dimension of training, telling you how your training is improving your ability to push the limits. You can even view your overall training load which measures your exercise volume from the last 7 days and compares it to the optimal range for your fitness and recent training history. For added motivation, you can download advanced workouts and training plans from Garmin Connect™.

Wrist-based Heart Rate

On your wrist, Elevate™ wrist heart rate technology1 lets you monitor your heart rate without wearing a chest strap. In addition to counting steps and monitoring sleep, the watch uses heart rate to provide calories burned information and quantify the intensity of your fitness activities. It also measures your heart rate variability to calculate a stress score that helps you assess what level of activity your body is ready for.

Stay Smartly Connected

tactix Charlie supports smart notifications2 when paired with a compatible device. Receive emails, texts and alerts right on your watch — whether you’re on the trail, in the field or simply away from your desk. Other connected features include automatic uploads to our Garmin Connect online fitness community, live tracking, GroupTrack3 and social media sharing through our free Garmin Connect and Garmin Connect™ Mobile applications.

Premium Materials, Robust Performance

Built for rugged go-anywhere use, the all-black, antireflective tactix Charlie watch is crafted of the finest premium-grade materials. Its lightweight titanium bezel features a DLC coated surface and stainless steel buttons, offering maximum resistance to abrasion and corrosion. There’s a scratch-resistant domed sapphire lens plus a bright, high-resolution, full-colour Garmin Chroma Display™ with user-activated “night vision mode”, which reduces backlight settings to a level that doesn’t interfere with the operation of night vision goggles. The watch is water-rated to 10 ATM (100 meters) and it comes with an all-weather black silicone band. For added variety, there’s also a wide selection of QuickFit® bands in your choice of premium leather, metal or silicone — so it’s easy to mix and match styles to go with any sport or activity.

Custom Apps, Watch Faces and More

You can customise your tactix Charlie with free downloads from our Connect IQ™ store. Change your watch face, add data fields, or get apps and widgets for information at a glance.

Garmin is continually working with top companies and developers to build strategic relationships that add even more value to your tactix Charlie multisport watch. Names such as Uber, Strava, AccuWeather and many others offer apps and enhancements that let you tailor your watch to fit your lifestyle in more ways than ever.

Running Power

Add power data to your training by downloading our Running Power app from the Connect IQ store onto your compatible watch. Developed by Garmin Labs, the Running Power app taps into metrics — such as pace, vertical oscillation, grade and even local wind conditions — to determine the amount of power you’re applying at the ground as you run. When you know how much power you’re expending from minute to minute and kilometre to kilometre, you’re better able to pace yourself, which can help keep you from tiring out too quickly. The best news? If you already own the right Garmin devices, adding power to your run is free. All you need is a tactix Charlie watch and one of these three accessories: HRM-Run™, HRM-Tri™ or the Running Dynamics Pod.
