Pulsar added two new night-vision options to its lineup in 2017, providing users with the 860RT and X970 monoculars designed for security and search-and-rescue use. The units can also be useful tools for hunters tracking game.

The company's new 860RT offers consumers a number of features in an affordable package, providing streaming capabilities through the use of the company's Stream Vision app, which allows users to transmit video and audio through the device onto the internet.

The unit features a total magnification range from 6.5-13x and uses a 640x480 CMOS sensor designed to promote better low-light performance. The 860RT also includes adjustable IR power, providing the ability to control brightness levels on the display. This enables owners to focus on short-range and long-range objects easily.

The Digiforce 860RT runs on commonly available AA batteries, and four batteries provides the unit with 6 hours of runtime. For occasions where longer battery life is needed, a power-input jack is also offered, enabling users to plug the monocular into battery packs for extended use.

Pulsar also offers the Digiforce X970 night-vision monocular, providing users with 4-8x magnification range using a 752x582 CCD sensor, providing a maximum detection range of 500 yards. The unit uses a 640x480 OLED display and allows owners to record video onto an external DVR.

Other features of the X970 include reticles with rangefinding capabilities built in, enabling hunters to measure the distance to rabbits, hogs and deer, enabling accurate shots. The unit also uses the company's trademarked Sumlight technology, ensuring performance in low-light conditions.

The Pulsar 860RT and X970 night-vision monoculars both come equipped with a carrying case and a wrist strap. The 860RT features a micro-USB cable, as well as a tripod adaptor. The X970 is sold with a video cable and a car adapter. The suggested retail price on the Pulsar 860RT is $479.99, while the X970 retails at a suggested price of $959.99.
