A Rugged GPS Watch That’s as Tough as Its User
The outdoors can be a dangerous place for those who aren’t prepared. Therefore, that’s why Garmin believes that when adventurers rely on Instinct, the world can rely on them. The company has crafted the rugged, reliable Garmin Instinct GPS watch. With a strong casing, smart features and global connectivity, it was built to endure as long as the wild does.
Features of the Garmin Instinct GPS Watch
Built to Endure
Constructed to MIL-STD-810G for thermal-, shock- and water-resistance, the fiber-reinforced polymer case ensures strength and durability in even the most brutal circumstances. The display is chemically-strengthened for scratch-resistance and is high-contrast so the user can read it in bright sunlight. However, just because it’s tough doesn’t mean it’s uncomfortable; the silicone bands are fully vented and include two independent, removable keeper loops, preventing the user from catching the watch.
Reliable GPS Tracking
For those looking to blaze their own trails, Instinct features GPS, GLONASS and Galileo satellite network capability. These systems track in more challenging environments than GPS alone. In addition to the built-in 3-axis compass and barometric altimeter, the wearer can keep their bearings wherever they are. The trip back to basecamp or home is easier with the TracBack feature, which routes the same path the user took from endpoint to start.
Monitor. Train. Improve.
The Instinct GPS watch monitors heart rate, activity and stress while worn. That way, users can keep track of how much they do—and how much hard work they’re putting in. It even features preloaded activity profiles for running, biking, swimming and more.
Smart Tech to Stay Connected
Wearers can pair their phone with their Instinct and the Garmin Connect online fitness community for automatic data uploads, live tracking and the exclusive GroupTrack feature. Similarily, it also works with the Garmin Explore website or app so users can plan future outdoor excursions.
If paired with a Garmin inReach, the Instinct can display messages received by that device and respond with preset messages using inReach satellite communication technology. In addition, it sends weather alerts to the Instinct to keep the wearer informed of any pending weather issues. In the event of an emergency, the connection can trigger an SOS alert to the GEOS 24/7 emergency response team.
The Tip of The Iceberg
In conclusion, the Instinct GPS watch is only one in a series of groundbreaking Garmin tech.
