Living an outdoor life – be it work, sports, or leisure – requires you to have rugged apparel, and that includes your smartwatch. Everything needs to endure the conditions. Certainly, you can count on the Garmin Instinct Outdoor Watch among the items that will carry you through the rigors of the outdoor world.
This watch is built to withstand the outdoors and is manufactured to U.S. military standard 810G for thermal, shock, and water resistance to 100 meters. The fiber-reinforced polymer case adds durability, and the chemically-strengthened, scratch-resistant display has a contrast allowing you to read it in bright sunlight.
The Garmin Instinct Outdoor Watch has a built-in three-axis compass and barometric altimeter that does more than just carry you through with GPS. It has multiple global navigation satellite systems that also include GLONASS and Galileo.
Along with the navigation, this watch will also monitor your estimated heart rate, activity, and stress and helps you train with preloaded activity profiles. You’ll stay connected with friends, family, and coworkers with smart notifications when paired with a compatible smartphone. There are also automatic data uploads to the Garmin Connect online fitness community.
The watch ships with a charging/data cable and documentation.
Take $120 off the price of this watch in one of four colors and pay just $179.99. Alternatively, you can also get the watch in solar, surf, tactical, and esports editions.
