Garmin is back with its new outdoor sports watch is the Garmin Instinct. It is perfect for navigation and great for adventurers but has less on fitness.
This outdoor GPS watch comes with military grade standards for thermal, shock and water resistance (up to 100m). Garmin Instinct features a fiber reinforced polymer case with a chemically strengthened and scratch-resistant display. It packs a built-in 3-axis compass, barometric altimeter AND a heart rate monitor. For better tracking, Instinct offers GPS, GLONASS and Galileo support for multi-satellite network capability. The sports watch is compatible with other Garmin devices. The battery life is fairly decent – up to 14 days in smartwatch mode, 16 hours in GPS mode and up to 40 hours in UltraTrac battery saver mode.
The Instinct is aimed at the adventurers who cannot afford Garmin’s pricey Fenix range. Though not quite cheap at 30,000 INR, it is half the price of the Fenix range. It is available in Graphite, Tundra and Flame Red colors.
