ENGINEERED FOR ENDURANCE
Water resistant up to 100 metres, fibre-reinforced polymer case, scratch-resistant Corning® Gorilla® glass and a battery powered by the sun creates a device that’s built to endure.
DESIGNED TO BE DARING
Bold colours, high contrast displays and purpose-built design bring to life a non-traditional smartwatch that turns heads at every glance.
Variable based on sun-exposure, Instinct can provide unprecedented battery life to those that explore under the sun.
MILITARY STANDARD 810
Instinct is built to the U.S. military standard 810 for thermal, shock and water resistance (rated to 100 metres).
View how various settings and sensors impact your watch’s battery life, so you can make battery-extending changes on the fly.
Simply by looking at your wrist, stay up to date on ocean conditions to help catch the perfect wave.
Record the number of waves surfed, maximum speed reached and distance travelled by using the surf activity profile.
Use preloaded activity profiles for surfing, swimming, running, biking, hiking, rowing, strength and more.
WRIST-BASED HEART RATE
Get heart rate data1 along with alerts if your heart rate stays too high or too low while you’re at rest. Gauge how hard your heart is working during activities, even underwater.
For altitude acclimation or sleep monitoring, a Pulse Ox2 sensor uses light beams at your wrist to gauge how well your body is absorbing oxygen.
Heart rate variability is used to calculate your stress level score, so you can see if you’re having a calm, balanced or stressful day.
BODY BATTERY™ ENERGY MONITOR
Optimise your body’s energy reserves, using heart rate variability, stress, sleep and other data to gauge when you’re ready to be active or when you may need to rest.
Access multiple global navigation satellite systems (GPS, GLONASS and Galileo) to track in more challenging environments than GPS alone.
Navigate your next trail with ABC sensors, including an altimeter for elevation data, barometer to monitor weather and three-axis electronic compass.
Take the guesswork out of your return journey by using this feature to navigate the same route back to your starting point.
Receive emails, texts and alerts right on your watch when paired with a compatible device.
PAIR FOR SATELLITE COMMUNICATION
Pair Instinct with an inReach® device (sold separately; active satellite subscription required) to view and send messages, get weather alerts on your wrist and trigger an SOS to the GEOS 24/7 emergency response team.

"Massively impressed with the SOLAR power potential of the Garmin Instinct Solar Surf Edition Smartwatch, and with the power management functionality you can get at least 20 days without a charge but potentially over 50 days (worth noting that this watch obviously isn't 100% Solar powered). The display is not as capable as some (e.g. Apple Watch, etc) but the functionality does the job for me. I wanted something that I could use to track my surfing, running, biking, etc with a heart rate monitor and didn't need to charge every night so this is bang on for me. It does have all the smart notification functionality for emails, texts, call, etc but I didn't want another device to interrupt my day so have turned that off. The Garmin Connect App is pretty easy to use and it hooks up easily to most of the other activity Apps I use. Overall I think this is a great smartwatch and relatively good value compared to some others and the Garmin does bring a lot of dependable Kudos to the table." JB
And here's a handy video review from DC Rainmaker in the US:
"This is an excellent smartwatch with superb battery life. Its built-in GPS and impressive list of features are likely to appeal to serious sports enthusiasts wanting to accurately track their activities." Which? 2020
