Product Info

They say the Sun won't explode for 5,000,000,000 years. That's five billion, with a B. It seems like enough time to wrap your head around the sheer number of features in the Garmin Instinct® Solar GPS Watch, but we're not completely sure. This watch can be charged indefinitely by just wearing it in daylight, powering it up for all sorts of sports and navigation-specific tracking functions. Ever wanted to know how your heart rate changes depending on the swim stroke and elevation of the mountain lake you're in? This watch will tell you. Seriously!
