  • Almost perfect
    Reviewed by Bob270 - March 15, 2022

    I’ve had the watch for about a month now with daily use. It’s awesome you can be a very involved user with activities and goals for almost anything you do. Or as minimal as you would like. The solar charging is awesome I’ve only charged it once this month and that was only to get the watch to full charge to start. The one thing from this being the perfect watch is I wish it had an anti reflective face coating. I bought this over the other garmins for the “tactical” features like nv mode jump modes and kill switch. Even with all of that I’m slightly paranoid that my watch could slide out of my sleeve and signal to everyone where I am with a reflection.

  • almost five stars
    Reviewed by thebritish - May 20, 2022

    The Instinct 2 is less bulky, that was my first impression, and it's edges seem more refined than it's predecessor. So it looks and feels a little more classy but I'm feeling confident it has retained it's strength and resistance to the elements. The battery level and solar charging have improved, at least so far as I can tell and that was a selling point for me. One thing I noticed is that the screen detail is not visible at some angles, and although not a major issue, I really don't understand why that should be. If you use the watch a lot, as I do, it is a noticeable difference from the first Instinct, at least this particular Solar Tactical is.

  • Great Watch
    Reviewed by Mr P - March 7, 2022

    This was my first Smartwatch purchase. Still getting used to it and it has a ton of features. I am concerned about the plastic face holding up over time and I wish it had color. However, I would not be willing to give up battery life for that feature.

  • Perfect EDC Watch
    Reviewed by AJ Werk - May 17, 2022

    I received this as a gift from my wife and I absolutely love it. I previously had an apple watch and I was looking for something that was tougher, had more data to share per activity, and also the leading factor which is a longer battery life. With this watch I can now properly track my sleep, all my outdoor and indoor activities and am safer along the way too. Being able to rely on the GPS getting me out without my watch dying half way out is huge. I thank you Garmin for all the hard work put into this watch and I am not a Garmin Wearer for life! Cheers

  • Hate To Take It Off My Wrist
    Reviewed by Rand M. - March 21, 2022

    This is really the perfect smart watch. It keeps track of my running, shows how My fitness level is progressing, is hooked to your telephone so you won’t miss a call and it is tough. Additionally, the battery lasts a long time. I went on a week long trip and with the Solar charging was only down one day of battery when I came home. The alarm also woke me up every morning. Compared to the rest of the Garmin line it is sanely sized. It is really everything you need.
