Garmin’s Instinct outdoor watch gets a facelift and now they are calling it the Instinct Tactical Edition. It includes many of the features from the first Instinct, but a new all-black look and a few upgrades. The Tactical Edition includes navigation features like dual-position GPS formatting and waypoint projection.
It also has a night-vision compatibility mode for those using night vision goggles. This outdoor watch includes a stealth mode, which when activated, prevents storage and sharing of your GPS position. It disables wireless communication, but you can still see your own current location. Garmin has added the Jumpmaster mode for skydivers or parachutists. This mode allow you to see two sets of coordinate systems on the same screen, all at once. This feature is also available on Fenix watches. The Tactical Edition still comes standard with a heart rate monitor, 24/7 activity tracking and smartwatch features.
This outdoor watch has a rugged, strong build with a scratch-resistant display. It is water resistant to 100 metres. In terms of battery life, it offers up to 14 days in smartwatch mode, up to 16 hours in GPS mode and 40 hours in UltraTrac mode. The new Instinct is available for 32,000 INR, 3,500 INR more than the standard Instinct.
