DO WHAT YOU LOVE, LONGER
Instinct is a GPS smartwatch built to break convention, conquer the elements and endure longer. It's now taking battery life to a new level by harnessing the power of the sun.
 

ENGINEERED FOR ENDURANCE
Fiber-reinforced polymer case, chemically strengthened, scratch-resistant Corning® Gorilla® glass and a battery powered by the sun creates a device that's built to endure.

DESIGNED TO BE DARING
Bold colors, high contrast displays and purpose-built design bring to life a non-traditional smartwatch that turns heads at every glance.



Features:
  • ENGINEERED FOR ENDURANCE - Fiber-reinforced polymer case, chemically strengthened, scratch-resistant Corning® Gorilla® glass and a battery powered by the sun creates a device that's built to endure.
  • DESIGNED TO BE DARING - Bold colors, high contrast displays and purpose-built design bring to life a non-traditional smartwatch that turns heads at every glance.
  • SOLAR BATTERY - Variable based on sun-exposure, Instinct can provide unprecedented battery life to those that explore under the sun.
  • MILITARY STANDARD 810 - Instinct is built to the U.S. military standard 810 for thermal, shock and water resistance (rated to 100 meters).
  • POWER MANAGER - View how various settings and sensors impact your watch's battery life, so you can make battery-extending changes on the fly.
  • SPORTS APPS - Use preloaded activity profiles for surfing, swimming, running, biking, hiking, rowing, strength and more.
  • WRIST-BASED HEART RATE - Get heart rate data1 along with alerts if your heart rate stays too high or too low while you're at rest. Gauge how hard your heart is working during activities, even underwater.
  • PULSE OX - For altitude acclimation or sleep monitoring, a Pulse Ox2 sensor uses light beams at your wrist to gauge how well your body is absorbing oxygen.
  • STRESS TRACKING - 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.
  • BODY BATTERY™ ENERGY MONITOR - Optimize your body's energy reserves, using heart rate variability, stress, sleep and other data to gauge when you're ready to be active or when you may need to rest.
  • MULTI-GNSS SUPPORT - Access multiple global navigation satellite systems (GPS, GLONASS and Galileo) to track in more challenging environments than GPS alone.
  • ABC SENSORS - Navigate your next trail with ABC sensors, including an altimeter for elevation data, barometer to monitor weather and three-axis electronic compass.
  • TRACBACK® ROUTING - Take the guesswork out of your return journey by using this feature to navigate the same route back to your starting point.
  • SMART NOTIFICATIONS - Receive emails, texts and alerts right on your watch when paired with a compatible device.
  • PAIR FOR SATELLITE COMMUNICATION - Pair Instinct with an inReach® device (sold separately; active satellite subscription required) to view and send messages, get weather alerts on your wrist and trigger an SOS to the GEOS 24/7 emergency response team.

Awesome watch
I’ve had the watch now for about 8 months. My first watch needed to be warrantied but garmin stood by their product and sent a replacement immediately.

Watch is awesome. I use it for upland hunting and the dog tracking feature.

Everything I wanted!
The main things I was looking for in a new watch were: great battery life, shows my notifications, rugged for my lifestyle. This watch checked all of those boxes! The battery life is great, but when you have the extra charge through solar, it's phenomenal! I returned my new Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 to get this watch. While the Galaxy Watch lastest barely a day, I can easily get over 30 days with this one. That is huge for my outdoor lifestyle and not wanting to constantly think about how charged my watch is. I've biked, climbed, played pickleball, and tore seats out of a bus with this thing on and not a scratch. It is so worth it. Just buy it.

Needed this
Complicated set up, at least for me. Customer service provided the help I needed. I own and trust Garmin products and so far, this is no exception to the quality I expect.

Great watch
This has been a great watch. It holds a charge forever. I haven’t even begun to tap into all the features, but the ones I have used are great. I would highly recommend this watch to anyone.

Great purchase!!!
COUPLE WEEKS IN WITH THIS. REALLY TRYING TO LEARN THE FEATURES WHICH APPEAR TO BE AN INFINITE AMOUNT. EVERYTHING SO FAR IS WORKING WELL. THE SYNCHRONIZATION WITH THE APP AND THE DATA IT PRESENTS IS GREAT. I HAVE Q LOT TO LEARN BUT THIS WAS A WORTHWHILE WHILE PURCHASE AS OF THE DATE AND LIMITED TIME I HAVE HAD IT.

Second chance success!
I bought my first Instinct Solar in June of '21. Worked great for about two months, but then battery life crashed. For the first 2 months, I only plugged it in to charge 2-3 times. Then it won't last a week, then not even 3 days. Contacted support, and they tried 3 attempts to resolve, but it kept getting worse, finally they replaced it. The new one, seems to be even better about holding a charge, better than the first one, yay!. So first thanks for the fast online support, and then replacement after 3 attempts to resolve. Only negative, is sometimes hard to configure what I want with a long process, but usually good online help to get it configured. Very pleased with the watch.

Doesn't hold a great charge
I have both the Instinct Solar and Non-solar version. The solar doesn;t seem to hold a great change. I recently was rafting the Grand (plenty of sun) and the solar watch was dead (in battery saver mode) faster then the non-solar version

Great Battery Life
I bought this a few weeks ago and love it so far. Battery Life has been great, I came from a FitBit that would only last about 5 days and the Instinct Solar on full charge will be for 25 days. When go for a ride I can pick 1-2 days of additional charge. Great fit and looks

Great watch
Bought watch about 2 weeks ago to replace Ionic which had gone on the fritz. The buttons and modes took some time to get a feel for. Really love the solar aspect-haven’t had to put watch on charger since I gave it the first full charge.
