Garmin’s New ‘tactix Delta’ Is Basically A Fenix 6X Sapphire With Some Military-Specific Features, E.G., Night Vision, Stealth & Kill.

Garmin has had prior iteration of military-grade ‘tactix’ watches. This the 4th generation, with the ‘Delta’ monikor to invoke the famed U.S. Army ‘Delta Force‘, is a Fenix 6X Sapphire with a few very military-oriented features (in addition to conforming to the MIL-STD-810 ruggedness criteria). These being: night vision capability, stealth mode & a kill switch.

Night Vision capability allows the display to be read while wearing night vision goggles. Useful feature.

Stealth Mode disable all wireless signals from the watch to prevent it from being detected. So, if you are doing surveillance or trying to avoid being detected the watch is not going to give your position away.

Kill mode wipes the watches memory so that no one can access the GPS history or any location data. Handy if one falls into the wrong hands.

Other than these the rest of the software features are the same as that available with a Fenix 6X (bar Solar).

Not really meant for your average or normal Garmin users. They should just get a Fenix 6 or 6X — unless they are desperately in need of bragging rights.

You would think Garmin would make this — or sell it — directly for military customers. A bit expensive for your average GI. Maybe they do sell thousands to the military along with Garmin’s GPS technology and this open-market availability is for ‘private contractors’.

Well, I don’t need one of these. Of that I am sure.

Eye4 C1 Indoor Surveillance Camera, With Motion Detect & IR, Is An Absolute Steal At $40 To Mitigate Sibling Rivalry.

No, no. We did NOT get this as a serious indoor surveillance camera for the house. That had been taken care of long time ago.

This was the latest hi-tech measure to mitigate the intense, war-footing sibling rivalry. Yep. This is to hopefully stop accusations of theft (of little things like batteries (rather than going down 2 flights of stairs to my huge cache of batteries (from the Dollar store)). 

And this camera for $40 an absolute beauty.

It took us, Teischan and I, less than 3 minutes, TOPS, to set it up — including downloading the Android APP (to Teischan’s pad) and setting it upon Wi-Fi (using the ‘WOW That Was Easy’ one-touch Wi-Fi configuration). Worked first time. No hassle. Absolute joy. This thing has Infrared for night vision, motion detection and can be controlled remotely. Yes, it is slightly big BUT we are talking $40.

Things are bad on the sibling rivalry issue at our house. In November, fed up with the constant bickering, I got them FOOD LOCKERS! Now they can lock up their favorite snacks so that the other doesn’t ‘borrow’ them. But it appears that wasn’t enough. So hopefully this camera will provide some type of true — the CAMERA DETERRENT!

This was the second camera we tried out. I first ordered an UOKOO camera but we couldn’t set it up! So that went back.

Two thumbs PLUS, PLUS for this camera. Amazing. Oh, it has two-way voice communications too and as such would be GREAT as a baby monitor or a pet monitor. 5-star. We love it. Not sure I would use it as a security camera — and I am not sure whether you can access it over the Internet as opposed to just Wi-Fi. I haven’t looked. But for now it does all of what I/Teischan want it to do. For me its is the peace. $40 for that. You can’t beat it. SMILE.
