  • Garmin - Instinct GPS Smartwatch
    Verified BuyerReviewed by RKHalloran - January 14, 2022

    I still haven't gotten all of the functions down, but I love the fact it keeps track of my steps and my sleep. It keeps track of my heart beats per minute and can tell how many calories you burn, sunrise and sunset, how many miles you walk. There is a app for the phone, but I connect with my PC and read the data it logs from there. The screen puts out quite a bit of light which can help with finding keys etc...The face has many options in dark or light color. I have set my watch to military time. Sensors and charging port on back side.

  • Rugged and Useful
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Kate - January 1, 2021

    So far this has been the best Christmas gift my boyfriend and I have gotten for each other. The sleep and stress monitors are particularly helpful especially because I can track throughout my day what had my heart rate up. It also details the quality of sleep you are getting and how that effects you battery charge and activity level over the next day which was pretty enlightening. We haven’t used the GPS functions yet, but we are stoked to try out the trails and the compass is awesome. Also, the weather helps us immensely because it includes the wind speed and direction which is great for deciding weather we surf or paddleboard/kayak. We also love the shared challenges we can set up in the Garmin app to make sure we are holding each other accountable for our daily activity goals.

  • Terrible rash from the exposed charge port.
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Balkanwolfy - May 19, 2020

    Wore it for a month, awesome features, awesome battery life, terrible rash from the exposed charge port. This was a great watch, the detail of information I received from the app for my workouts was outstanding. The rash I received from this was crippling, still battling it. Whoever though it was an awesome idea for an exposed charging port, with cheap metals, I wouldn’t buy ya a beer. If you care about your skin health, if you don’t want to gamble with a possibility of a rash, don’t buy this watch.

  • Inaccurate and unsafe
    Reviewed by sid54321 - October 18, 2020

    Garmin likes to spend on advertisements more than quality. I used fitbit surge for two years and never felt outage but within six months there have been two server outages with Garmin so not sure if our data and information is safe. Also it my Garmin instinct doesn't tell resting heartbeat accurately and doesn't track sleep as accurate as fitbit or may be other competitors in the market. Instict will be my last Garmin device I will go back to fitbit or Apple or some other smart watch brand.

  • Tough to understand
    Reviewed by Agris - May 17, 2022

    Watch and video instructions are not helping to understand basic functions...not possible to learn how to use this device ... adds are great, but how to get out these features - not clear. Most probably will have to give it back to shop as I am not born IT specialist to understand this complicated device ... not possible to use without understanding the device, it puts my life at danger. Necessary full video to get to know the device. Offered small videos do not answer all questions and often are of one and the same topic. Video-users manual necessary.
