You’ve never been one to follow the beaten path — that’s where Instinct comes in. This rugged GPS watch was built to withstand the toughest environments.
Durable Case & Display: The fiber-reinforced polymer case adds durability, and the chemically strengthened, scratch-resistant display is high contrast and sunlight readable.
Purpose-Built Bands: Fully vented silicone bands include 2 independent, removable keeper loops to ensure a secure fit and to keep you from getting caught on things.
Military Standard 810: Instinct is built to the U.S. military standard 810 for thermal, shock and water resistance (100m).
Battery Life: Internal, rechargeable lithium battery provides up to 14 days in smartwatch mode, up to 16 hours in GPS mode and up to 40 hours in UltraTrac™ battery saver mode.
Multi-GNSS Support: Access multiple global navigation satellite systems (GPS, GLONASS and Galileo) to track in more challenging environments than GPS alone.
Navigate your next trail with ABC sensors, including an altimeter for elevation data, barometer to monitor weather and three-axis electronic compass. Take the guesswork out of your return journey by using this feature to navigate the same route back to your starting point.
Heart Rate: Heart rate variability is used to calculate your stress level score, so you can see if you’re having a calm, balanced or stressful day.
Built-In Sports Apps: Use preloaded activity profiles for running, hiking, mountain biking, swimming and more.
Smart Notifications: Stay connected. Receive emails, texts and alerts right on your watch when paired with a compatible smartphone. You can even respond to texts if you have an Android™ phone.
Pair for Satellite Communication: Pair Instinct with an inReach device to view and send messages, get weather alerts on your wrist and trigger an SOS to the GEOS 24/7 emergency response team.
Pair with Dog Tracking Devices: Connect with Garmin dog devices to receive dog status updates and alerts right on your wrist.
