The Garmin Instinct is a rugged, reliable outdoor GPS watch which is built to be thermal, shock and water resistant (rated to 100 meters). The fiber-reinforced polymer case is super strong and durable. While the chemically-strengthened, scratch-resistant display is high-contrast enough to read in bright sunlight, making it ideal for exercising anywhere, anytime.

With GPS, GLONASS and Galileo satellite network capability, you’ll be on track with the latest and most up to date location information. While the built-in 3-axis compass and barometric altimeter will help you keep your bearings if you want to take a simpler approach. If you ever do get lost, the TracBack feature will ensure you can navigate the same route back to start.

When you are not out and about training, the Instinct still monitors your heart rate, activity and stress throughout the day.  The Instincts battery will last up to 14 days in smartwatch mode, up to 16 hours in GPS mode and up to 40 hours in UltraTrac™ battery saver mode. All of these features add up to one Instinctive watch that can tackle all the challenges that can be thrown you’re way while you’re out exploring and training.
