I ordered one from the same place using your link. After seeing a local shooters watch. He also purchased it from Miyar outfitters. They also had the in stock/ delay thing with he and I. But it seems like they deliver so it will be well worth it.Ran it today in a local team match with terrapin-x and an e-dope data card for iPhone.
I’ll write more later, but this combo is awesome. Once connected to watch, terrapin reconnects almost instantly (when it doesn’t, couple seconds to turn terrapin BT off and back on). It sends data to watch instantly.
Most of the stages were multiple target and went like this:
Look at watch
Type in solution to e-dope app
Laser next target, etc etc etc.
Then send data to e-dope card. Done. No pushing buttons on kestrel or writing down ranges. Just laser and look at watch.
You can also use it in a spotter shooter setup where your partner lasers target and you get solution to watch. I’ve now realized the BT issues with terrapin/kestrel are kestrel related as this connection is solid.
I had the Garmin Tempe sensor clipped onto my wind flag that’s on my tripod. This is now my main data source and kestrel is the backup or I’ll bring it out when the wind gets finnicky or high.
Bottom line: it’s awesome
I prefer data on my shooting hand, otherwise I’d be using the HUD. I had connectivity issues with T-X and my kestrel. So I was always manually inputting rather than deal with the connection. The watch hasn’t exhibited any issues.I ordered one from the same place using your link. After seeing a local shooters watch. He also purchased it from Miyar outfitters.

I used the T-X -> 5700 -> Edope for about a year. Once I got the HUD it was streamlined the whole process. The HUD is a joy to use. They should probably just put AB directly in it so I can own 3 redundant AB systems lol.
I thought this watch was ridiculous until I saw one in-person. The idea of going directly from Terripan to watch is pretty awesome. I doubt it will be my primary though bc I really like to use the HUD and as I understand it, the watch doesn't talk to the HUD.
I currently have the Tactix Charlie. It's okay but I miss the buttonology and GUI of the Bravo. It was a direct influence from the 401. Not a fan of the applets in my last Fenix and current Charlie. Hope applicability of the widget environment grows and they actually become useful.
What's your DOF?I set up a couple profiles on my Tactix Delta AB. For example:
140gr Berger Hybrid, 2785fps, G7
Zero Range=100 Yards
Sight Height=2.15" Spuhr Mount on top of Surgeon 591
Twist Rate=8.00 in
Why is my 100yrd showing 0.11D on elevation?
Just an initial set up, haven't had a great deal of time to play with this yet. Bought it, headed for the mountains, just GPS and Tracking on ATV trails, just getting warmed up to the AB side of things.
ADJ, Coriolis, and Spin Drift are turned off or on in another menu.Target Screen T1
Direction of Fire 0 Degree (altered several times=no change)
Inclination 0 Degree
Speed 0.0 mph
Auto Update ON (turned off, no change)
Wind Speed 1 10mph
Wind Speed 2 5mph
Wind Direction 3:00
Amb/Stn Psi 27.59 Inches (HG)
Humidity 38% (my input)
I'm getting used to the watch but need an hour or two more to really get the hang of it.
What was the easiest way to "wake" the tempe? Did you just scroll to the temp homes screen and wait for it to connect/populate?I just used mine today in an NRL22 club match. Connected it to a Tempe I had for my Tactix Charlie. It worked well. Very easy actually. Data was true, button-ology was easy to navigate and use. Range Card is the most easily read. The Quick Edit function is very handy and pretty easy to use. Scrolling through number for MV, range, or what have you is not nearly as easy as a kestrel. Way too easy to overshoot or under shoot when scrolling. I used the target card on one troop line stage. I really don't like the way they have that setup. It is usable but I did have to move my support hand to navigate with a scroll button every two shots. The target card is normally my favorite function along with my HUD but the range card is laid out much better on this device.
One note about the Tempe, it will appear to be frustratingly disconnecting from your watch but it is just saving it's battery. It will only periodically send temp when you're using an app that needs temp. If you scroll to your temp widget and open it, the tempe will update it. AB will automatically pull this last data. When you close the temp widget and open AB you will see the latest temp. So don't worry. It will pull it. But ai haven't seen AB wake the tempe up and pull it on its own yet without the temp widget being used.
I haven't been able to connect my Terripan yet bc of registering and firmware update issues but that will really check all the boxes. Id feel pretty confident running it as my primary.
Edited to add: I started the match with 14 days left on the watch and ended with 12 days. 10 stage, 4.5hr match. Fully charged is a 21 day prediction.

Who cares it’s really an irrelevant numberOpened up the various widgets that make up nearly all environmentals. Guessing that cycling through them refreshes and allows AB to pull the most recent data. The only one that I'm not able to get to refresh is Humidity. I'm in Texas. I know it aint supposed to be Zero.
Done, but the more users who send in a support ticket on it the more it gets pushed to the top of the to do list.
Leave Auto Update on.Are you guys running Environment on Auto Update?
Got mine in the mail - messing with it now. Trying to figure out when it will update environmentals.
From 0% to 100% has about a 0.3% effect. So setting it to 50% means you realistically shouldn't ever be more than .1% ish off. Basically meaningless compared to other factors.Humidity can be set to 50% on any solver out there and it will do fine. It’s the environmental factor that matters the least.
Send in a support ticket on this, and tell all your friends to. Or see if they will share protocol and create it yourself. https://developer.garmin.com/connect-iq/overview/Now if I can just get the Camp Chef pellet grill app as a widget my world would be complete....
