Built to Endure Like You

When you can rely on Instinct, the world can rely on you. This rugged, reliable outdoor GPS watch is built to the U.S. military standard 810G for thermal, shock and water resistance (rated to 100 meters). The fiber-reinforced polymer case adds strength and durability, and the chemically-strengthened, scratch-resistant display is high-contrast enough to read in bright sunlight, so you can take it with you into the extremes you face every day. Plus, the fully vented silicone bands include two independent, removable keeper loops to ensure a secure fit and to keep you from getting caught on things.

GPS You Can Count On

You’ve never been one to follow the beaten path — that’s where Instinct comes in. GPS, GLONASS and Galileo satellite network capability tracks in more challenging environments than GPS alone. The built-in 3-axis compass and barometric altimeter help you keep your bearings. Take the guesswork out of your return journey by using the TracBack feature to navigate the same route back to start.

Monitor and Train

The Instinct GPS watch monitors your heart rate, activity and stress throughout the day, so you know how much you do — and how hard you’re working to do it. When you’re ready to train, we’ve got you covered with preloaded activity profiles for running, biking, swimming and more.

Add Global Connectivity

Pair your Instinct with an inReach® device so your watch can display messages received on your inReach device and send preset messages using inReach satellite communication technology. Get weather alerts on your wrist to stay up to date with changes in your environment. Plus, you’ll be able to trigger an SOS alert to contact the GEOS 24/7 emergency response team.

Garmin Instinct

This is my first "running" watch I have had in 15-20 years replacing my old IM Triathalon watch. The Instinct has TONS of very cool features that can easily make a data junkie out of you! I have had it a bit over 2 weeks and use it for running, primarily for distance & pace tracking but have also really like the HR tracking. At this point I only have a few cons. Figuring out how to access all the features is challenging because there are so many layers but take that with a grain of salt because I am self admittedly not a tech junkie at 50. It would be really cool if the screen had color and was touch screen. I bought the watch while it was on sale for $200.00 from #FleetFeet so compared to other $200.00 watches it does a heck of alot of really cool stuff that I might not ever use but am glad to have just in case...
