How it works

When you can rely on Instinct, the world can rely on you. The Garmin Instinct is rugged, reliable outdoor GPS watch 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. You’ve never been one to follow the beaten path — that’s where Instinct comes in. 

Key Features: 

  • Constructed to U.S. military standard 810G for thermal, shock and water resistance (rated 100 meteres)
  • Built-in 3-axis compass and barometric altimeter plus multiple global navigation satellite systems (GPS, GLONASS and Galileo) support helps track in more challenging environments than GPS alone
  • Monitor your heart rate¹, activity and stress; train with preloaded activity profiles
  • Stay connected with smart notifications² and automatic data uploads to the Garmin Connect online fitness community
  • Use the TracBack feature to navigate the same route back to your starting point.
  • Battery life: up to 14 days in smartwatch mode, up to 16 hours in GPS mode, up to 40 hours in UltraTra battery saver mode

Garmin Instinct is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 554.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Garmin Instinct- brilliant I've owned for a month and am learning more about the functions and having a blast. Great watch. Fits my tiny wrist so comfortably and the tail of the band doesn't stick out like all my previous watches. I love seeing my daily stats on the Garmin Connect App. Helps to keep me motivated. When I was looking for a smart watch, I initially didn't even consider Garmin, but IMO, they are current industry leaders and do a fantastic job. The battery life is outstanding. Lasts for about 2 weeks with my usage. And a very well built, hearty watch. I can wear it adventuring and it will survive!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great smart watch I got my instinct a week ago and I am very happy with it. I have had some budget smart watches to put my toe in the water. You clearly get what you pay for when you buy a smart watch. Huawei, amazfit bip, both quit working after a few months with non-existent customer support. I will not buy a watch that requires charging every day or every 2 days. Apple looking at you. I am all in on Garmin. I had one of their early gps devices. My next purchase is the inReach mini. Trips to the arctic, Africa, and Africa again in the next 6 months demand this. This watch will pair with the inReach, so I can send satellite text messages from my watch. Bam.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Exactly what I’ve been wanting. The Instinct is exactly what I’ve been look for. It has all the functions and widgets I need. Looked at the Sapphires but after comparing them both there’s functions I wouldn’t use and was a little clunky for me. Plus the Sapphire price range was a little much for not needing all the functions. The Instinct is a nice size and really light on the wrist. Only gave 4 stars because I haven’t used the track back feature yet, but looking forward to using it on this years elk hunts and scouting. It’ll give me time to get use to navigating through all the watch functions and features. Overall great watch and easy to set up and sink to my phone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Watch!!! I wanted a heart rate monitor to track my activity. This watch does this and more. The band is soft so I keep it on all the time. I’ll buy a couple extra bands in case one breaks. I love the sleep tracker as well. You need to download the app and connect it to the watch to see everything it can do but the details are very thorough. I haven’t used the GPS feature except to see my house location. The only down side so far is that you need to charge the watch from a USB source. Four days and it’s still fully charged. Mine is the bright orange color so if I get lost in the woods searchers will find me ;) :) Keep on hiking

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Reasonable watch I just bought this watch and it is OK for the very basic functions...the big problem is that the information is in imperial measurements instaed of metric...that is hopeless if you are not in the USA or UK. The print on notifications is a bit too small. The data given should be more orientated to an international style instead of being so limited. I could not reccomend this watch to anybody because it does not do the things I want the way I want it and there is limited back up and help from garmin. There was absolutely no mention that the watch is in imperial information with no conversion ability to metric. HOPELESS !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really quick and accurate HR, great battery life Bought this a few days ago and still working on the initial charge! Before the instinct I used a Samsung Gear 2 for everyday use and it couldn't handle constant HR plus notifications from my phone it would die within 6hrs in my 12 hr shift. I am a Law enforcement officer and a watch has to be tough, have a good battery and perform basic functions. This Garmin Instinct exceeds expectations! There are times when my HR can fluctuate from very low to pretty high very quickly and this watch picks up on that almost immediately which is nice because I can control my HR stay collected and on my "A" game. Worth every penny!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice performing smartwatch I snagged this watch after watching prices for over a year and it finally dropped in price. It is performing as advertised thus far. As an avid hiker , I am still learning all of the features pertaining to that sport. The lengthy owner's manual that I printed from the Garmin website is quite lengthy and cumbersome, and I doubt that I will use many of the features. But I do like the ones that I have tried thus far like the sleep monitor hand the hike tracker, which gives you all of pay details from your hike. Looking forward to getting more familiar with all of the features and how to get to them and out of them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good! I love my Apple Watch and love my G-shock, and wanted something that had the best of both and this Watch is definitely it! Haven’t tried the gps features yet, but hoping to put it to use with my day hiking and hunting season this fall. The software takes a bit to get used to but had it down within a few hours of playing. Tactile feedback in the buttons is nice and battery is awesome when you compare it to something like an Apple Watch which requires almost daily charging. Two days in and haven’t even dropped 1 bar on the battery icon, (using smartphone features only). Very happy so far
