Garmin Instinct Crossover Solar Tactical

 in style BLACK


The Garmin Instinct Crossover Solar Tactical combines military standards for toughness with a classic look for the office. Plus, it has tactical features, tracks your workouts and, thanks to its solar technology, has plenty of battery life to do everything you need it to.

The luminescent analog watch hands are bright, easy to read and incredibly reliable thanks to the built-in RevoDrive technology, so you can always be on time. The watch is also rugged, water-rated to 10 ATM as well as thermal and shock resistant to keep up with your lifestyle.

This watch has all of the tactical features you may need including dual-coordinates GPS, stealth mode and a kill switch. Plus, it looks good enough to wear with a tux.

Track all of the activities you love—from missions to backcountry skiing, obstacle course racing to golf. Plus, you can get even more details and accuracy with ABC sensors (accelerator, barometric altimeter and compass), multiple global navigation satellite systems, wrist-based heart rate and more.

This watch helps keep you safer outdoors, as well, by helping you navigate:

  • Reference point capabilities let you keep track of a known point relative to your location
  • Tracback helps you navigate the same route back to your starting point

Plus, if you pair your watch with your phone, your emergency contacts can track your live location and get notified if you need help.

The Instinct Crossover Solar Tactical also has your standard Garmin smartwatch functions. You can receive emails, texts and alerts right on your watch with your compatible smartphone. It also has health monitoring by tracking your heart rate, steps, Sleep Score, Body Battery™, Pulse Ox, and more.

The Garmin Instinct Crossover Solar Tactical combines a smart looking analog watch with the rugged durability and tactical capability of a military watch.
