  • Okay for Android users but I own an iphone
    Reviewed by Nathaniel Beneville - July 1, 2020

    So the Watch overall is amazing, the only thing that I’ve had issues with is receiving text messages. Since I’m an iPhone user, every other notification will show on the watch but text messages. I did my research and it isn’t an opinion of iPhone users. Also, the heart rate sensor is super off. I went on a hike the other day for 2.5 hours and it only said I burned 497 calories and my friends Fitbit said that he burned twice that. I’m looking into getting the Garmin forerunner 245 to see if that’s any better, so fingers crossed that they send out an update to fix that. I only had my watch for 3 days so hopefully, it adapts to my body habitats.

  • Exactly what I was hoping for
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Cw15 - June 15, 2021

    Very happy with this purchase! Had an Apple Watch Series 3 a couple years ago and wasn’t crazy about it. Felt like I was gonna break it constantly (I broke it twice in 3 years) and it’s just had a few too many bells & whistles. Plus the millions of notifications were too much. This Garmin Instinct is perfect! More rugged, more focused on giving you fitness and useful information and is surprisingly lightweight and comfortable. Only “downside” I can think of is that it’s been a little difficult remembering which buttons to push to find things but I’m sure that will get easier with time. Would recommend to anyone even thinking about buying!

  • Great smart watch
    Reviewed by Tugokc - April 20, 2019

    I got my instinct a week ago and I am very happy with it. I have had some budget smart watches to put my toe in the water. You clearly get what you pay for when you buy a smart watch. Huawei, amazfit bip, both quit working after a few months with non-existent customer support. I will not buy a watch that requires charging every day or every 2 days. Apple looking at you. I am all in on Garmin. I had one of their early gps devices. My next purchase is the inReach mini. Trips to the arctic, Africa, and Africa again in the next 6 months demand this. This watch will pair with the inReach, so I can send satellite text messages from my watch. Bam.
