Garmin Tri-Tronics Sport PRO

  • Garmin Tri-Tronics Sport PRO

    The Garmin Tri-Tronics Sport Pro e-collar training system is a new design based off Tri-Tronics discontinued Sport Basic unit. Garmin has revamped the design and included some upgrades in this newest offering in the e-collar training systems category.


    Garmin Sport PRO is a simple, intuitive, 1-hand operation dog training device for sporting dog owners. It features a quick turn dial with positive clicks to indicate changing up to 10 stimulation levels and 4 training buttons to control continuous and momentary stimulation, vibration, tone, and lights. Train up to 3 dogs (additional dog devices required, sold separately) with a 3/4 mile range and use settable BarkLimiter to keep things quiet.

    Both the handheld transmitter and the dog device collars are designed to withstand all the blows, bumps and sloppy conditions of training and hunting. The dog device comes with 2 lengths of removable, stainless, insulated contact points for reliable performance in wet conditions and extended comfort for the dog.

    The Sport PRO handheld is water-rated to IPX7 and even floats; the dog device is water-rated to 1 ATM (10 meters). The transmitter and dog device both feature a long-lasting, rechargeable, user-replaceable lithium-ion battery. A battery life indicator on the transmitter and dog device lets you know when to recharge the system.
