  • Not worth it
    Reviewed by sescfb - December 6, 2020

    The solar surf edition sounds pretty sweet in the marketing materials, but I've been disappointed by all the special features above and beyond a normal Instinct. Solar? Have never seen any increase in battery life. Surfline rewind? Iphone app only and I have Android (like 85% of the population). Tides on the home screen? Only works when connected to your phone when I literally bought this to walk to surf and leave my phone at home. Wave tracking? Didn't track any waves until their update and now it routinely tracks 30+ (when I catch around 10). Thought it'd fulfill all my needs and it's just been an absolute frustration.

  • Yea...but what about Surf features
    Reviewed by OldGuysRule - January 6, 2021

    This watch does a lot of things well...but the focus of the Marketing and design is on the surf functions and they are not done well. All the great Garmin stuff aside...and many great features are there in spades, the surf tools need work urgently. To market a watch to a tribe of athletes that want very specific data, wave count, accurate speed and location, and then give that group only two of the three on a reasonably expensive Surf Edition is a travesty. I've tried a couple recommendations from the forum to fix the hyper-count of waves per session anomaly to not avail. It appears to me the threshold of what counts as a wave is set way too low (maybe 2-3 mph)....maybe it's movement toward the beach....whatever the count is based on makes the actual count of waves taken unusable.

  • Love how user friendly it is as well as the solar
    Reviewed by Mer’a - August 12, 2020

    I bought this a few weeks ago. Since I live mostly in Hawaii, I was very interested in the solar and surf features. The solar is so amazing, I’m up to a 32 day charge with all the features on. The watch in general is so easy to navigate and visual is perfect at a glance. I hope to use the surf feature next month when I’m back in Hawaii. I’ve tried all the other watches, iwatch, galaxy watch, and Fitbit, but this by far is the best of the best! Love it!
