Garmin International, Inc. has announced this delta SE handheld and collar. Utilizing Garmin’s dog training technology, the new ergonomic handheld offers an easy-to-use form factor. Whether at home or on the hunt, the Delta SE’s simple, one-handed operation focuses on the dog, not the handheld device.
“For years, trainers of all experience levels have chosen the Garmin Delta Series as a trusted tool for their dog training needs. We listened to customer feedback and built on the legacy of the Delta series to create our most intuitive handheld dog training device yet – Delta SE,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin vice president of global consumer sales. “The simplified, non-visible training interface was deliberately designed so that trainers can quickly adapt to Delta SE and the specific training situation at hand. And with the inclusion of Garmin’s proven canine technology, trainers have the tools they can rely on for beginning or advanced training sessions.”
The Delta SE handheld is a lightweight, screenless remote trainer that uses simple three-button operation. Individuals can select tone, continuous, or instantaneous correction settings using dedicated buttons on the handheld. A tactile dial on the top of the handheld is used to switch between 10 different stimulation levels to suit the dog’s temperament and training situation, as well as an auxiliary setting to change the tone button to a vibration setting. The palm-sized handheld weighs just 90 grams, making it small enough to fit in a pocket when not in use or light enough to clip to a lanyard.
The Delta SE Handheld can be paired with new Delta SE collars or existing Delta XC and PT 10 collars. The new Delta SE collars use interchangeable long or short plastic contact points for more comfort and easier wearing, and a new collar retention bar to prevent dogs from snagging on things like fences, branches and debris. Using the slide switch on the side of the handheld, Delta SE users can train up to two dogs up to a half-mile during the same training session. This fully sealed up-down slide switch allows the user to switch between different dogs safely and quickly at any time. And with up to 70 hours of battery life and USB-C charging, Delta SE is there when you need it. Visit garmin.com for more information. MSRP: $249.99
