Garmin Instinct 2

Published By

When you’re looking for a smart watch, there’s two ways to go: Look for a smartwatch that can also double as outdoor and sport gear, or look for a rugged and active watch that also has smart features. Garmin’s Instinct 2 is definitely on the side of the latter—but its deceptively simple interface and durable, take-anywhere design hide a surprisingly robust range of smartwatch features, too.

Connections to multiple global navigation systems keep you on the grid and never lost, no matter how far off the map your workout takes you. That’s paired with altitude and barometer sensors, as well as an innovative “trackback” system that will guide you right back to where you began. As if that wasn’t enough, you can then pair the Instinct 2 with a compatible smartphone to access a whole slew of smart notifications, apps, and activity tracking functions.
