All about this product



When you can rely on Instinct Solar, the world can rely on you. This rugged GPS smartwatch from Garmin boasts solar charging —giving incredible battery life in Smartwatch and Expedition modes while outdoors. Its built to the U.S. military standard 810G for thermal, shock and water resistance (rated to 100 metres).


If 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 the start.


The Instinct Solar 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, it's got it covered with preloaded activity profiles for running, biking, swimming and more. Smart notifications let you leave your phone in your pocket. Pair your phone with Instinct and the Garmin Connect online fitness community for automatic uploads, live tracking and the GroupTrack feature. Or, pair with the Garmin Explore website and app to plan adventures before you head out.
