Built to Endure Like You

When you can rely on Instinct, the world can rely on you. This  rugged, reliable outdoor GPS watch is built to the U.S. military  standard 810G for thermal, shock and water resistance (rated to 100  meters). The fiber-reinforced polymer case adds strength and durability,  and the chemically-strengthened, scratch-resistant display is  high-contrast enough to read in bright sunlight, so you can take it with  you into the extremes you face every day. Plus, the fully vented  silicone bands include two independent, removable keeper loops to ensure  a secure fit and to keep you from getting caught on things.     

GPS You Can Count On

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 start.       

Monitor and Train

The Instinct 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, we’ve got you covered with  preloaded activity profiles for running, biking, swimming and more.       

Stay Connected

Smart notifications let you leave your phone in your pocket. Pair your phone with Instinct and our 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.    

Add Global Connectivity

Pair your Instinct with an inReach®  device so your watch can display messages received on your inReach  device and send preset messages using inReach satellite communication  technology.
