The Instinct collection is the newest release from Garmin, and has already proved to be hugely popular in its first couple of weeks of release.

A more rugged and ready approach to the usual smooth classy sports designs. The Instinct is made for being outdoors, adventuring and supporting you through any challenge.

The Garmin Instinct is currently available in three different colours, GraphiteTundra and Flame Red, which all look fantastic and retail at £269.99, which is really a fantastic price point for the amount of technology you get with this watch.

Built for endurance, the Instinct features GPS functionality, similarly to the Fenix range, which allows for route planning and tracking, for any kind of adventure. This is supported by its activity tracking features which allow you to follow your journey with steps and many other pieces of data!
