Built For Endurance
A rugged, reliable outdoor GPS watch is built to the U.S military standard of 810G for thermal, shock and water resistance (100m water resistance). The fibre reinforced dial on the watch is made from a polymer material, creating a high contrast display, making it perfectly readable in bright sunlight, or night time, meaning that it is perfect for any kind of adventure, ready to take on the extremes you face every day. The Garmin Instinct also comes with a fully vented silicone band, including two independent, removable keeper loops to ensure that there is a secure fit between the watch and the wearer.
GPS capable watches have increased in popularity hugely over the last couple of years, and the technology involved has been improved time and time again. With the Garmin Instinct, you no longer have to follow the beaten path. GPS, GLONASS and Galileo satellite network capability allow the watch to track positioning in more challenging environments than GPS alone, making the watch much more accurate and reliable than ever before. Featuring a built in 3 axis compass and barometric altimeter, the Instinct assist you in keeping your bearings expertly, taking the guesswork and unpredictability out of your journey, by using the TracBack feature to retain, and follow the same route back again.
