Garmin’s Instinct® is a military-grade, energy-efficient GPS smartwatch—equipped with an advanced solar battery, fiber-reinforced polymer case, and scratch-resistant Corning® Gorilla® glass. Available here with a high-contrast display, the Instinct includes loads of built-in sports and workout apps for your training, along with wrist-based heart rate monitoring, sleep/altitude monitoring, stress tracking, calorie/step counts, and more.
Out on the trail, the Instinct connects not only with GPS, but other global navigation systems (GLONASS and Galileo) to track across more challenging environments. ABC Sensors (barometric altimeter, weather barometer, 3-axis electronic compass) help you adapt to changes in that environment, while Tracback Routing can help you retrace your steps. The solar-powered battery and power manager features also keep you out in the world longer, connected, without having to stop for a charge.
The Instinct is built to the U.S. military standard 810 for thermal, shock and water resistance (rated to 100 meters), but it’s also lightweight (53g) and compact (45 x 45 x 15.3 mm).
Users can connect their watch to the Garmin Connect app to see their stats and track their goals in real time.
