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 metres). The fibre-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 the 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

7 reviews for Garmin Instinct

  1. 5 out of 5

    Andy Swift

    Had my Instinct for 6 months now and i really like it, great battery life and it gives me everything I want. A smart watch to wear everyday but then it will then navigate me in the hills at the weekend. A cracking piece of kit, great build quality.

    The watch was easy to personalise and to download other software too, enabling me to monitor heartbeat, speed, distance, direction, ascents and various other functions. The watch connects quickly to the satelite and has provided accurate time, speed and distance in both training and in marathons. Having used the watch for running I have also found it works perfectly well for normal day to day use where I can monitor activities and transfer the data to my phone. Overall very happy with the watch.

    Excellent service, arrived within 24 hours. Recommend the training/support package from GPS Training, the videos make getting started with the Instinct so much easier. A lot of watch for the money.

    The main reason for me buying the Garmin Instinct was for the 14-day battery life. I’m going on 5 days now with mainly smart watch features and a few GPS uses and still have about 75% battery. The second reason I bought this over other smartwatches by Garmin (or other brands) was the appearance of a “normal” watch. I really like the way it feels on my wrist, not to big.
    I think this has the look of older more rugged looking Casios or G-shocks. It does not have a colour screen which I think adds to the vintage aesthetic and makes it easy to read in direct sunlight.

    It’s lightweight, and very comfortable, I wear it 24×7 and have had no problems wearing it all the time. It’s rugged and “no nonsense”, the styling suits me. Battery life is fab, I only have to charge it once every 12-14 days. I’ve used it on a treadmill and to go running outside with, as well as to record strength and aerobic workouts. Overall brilliant sports watch, and very happy with it.
