The fiber-reinforced polymer case adds durability, and the chemically strengthened, scratch-resistant display is high contrast and sunlight readable.

PURPOSE-BUILT BANDS

Fully vented silicone bands include 2 independent, removable keeper loops to ensure a secure fit and to keep you from getting caught on things.

Internal, rechargeable lithium battery provides up to 14 days in smartwatch mode, up to 16 hours in GPS mode and up to 40 hours in UltraTrac™ battery saver mode.

STEALTH MODE

Enable stealth mode to stop storing and sharing your GPS position and disable wireless connectivity and communication.

JUMPMASTER MODE

This feature works to calculate high-altitude release points according to military guidelines and helps to navigate you to your objective once you’ve jumped.

DUAL-POSITION FORMAT

Easily sync your location with others by seeing both the universal transverse mercator (UTM) and the military grid reference system (MGRS) on the same screen

NIGHT VISION COMPATIBILITY MODE

Easily switch between daytime view and nighttime view with a screen that can be read by night-vision goggles.

ABC SENSORS

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.

WRIST-BASED HEART RATE

Enhanced optical heart rate1 technology gauges the intensity of your fitness activities.

STRESS TRACKING

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.

BUILT-IN SPORTS APPS

Use preloaded activity profiles for running, hiking, mountain biking, swimming and more.

SMART NOTIFICATIONS

Receive emails, texts and alerts right on your watch when paired with a compatible smartphone. You can even respond to texts if you have an Android™ phone.

5 reviews for Garmin Instinct – Tactical Edition

  1. 5 out of 5

    Max Harris

    I’ve had this watch for a month now. I like it a lot. I like that it is tough. Had two fitbits and broke them both. I wear this while doing physical labour and my watch can sometimes take a beating. I like the many features. I have improved on my running using the pace feature from my watch not to mention the gps so i can just take off and don’t have to scout a run to know my distances. I like the control of all the options of the features on this watch. I probably only use a tenth of what this thing is capable of doing. I like the long battery life and short recharge time also.

    I was looking for a GPS watch and it was a toss up between this, the Garmin Fenix 5 or the Suunto Traverse. I chose the Garmin Intinct and went for the Tactical version for the extra features It is a good price and some of the great reviews it’s been receiving on YouTube. I think I made the right choice. Imagine the Garmin Fenix with all the flashy bits stripped back and just the essential functions left in. This is a product that does most things really well. The things it does well are the elements that revolve around hiking and walking outdoors. It has some advanced features that are genuinely helpful. Very pleased with the purchase.
