  • Engineered for Endurance - Fiber-reinforced polymer case, chemically strengthened, scratch-resistant Corning Gorilla glass and a battery powered by the sun creates a device that's built to endure
  • Designed to be Daring - Bold colors, high contrast displays and purpose-built design bring to life a non-traditional smartwatch that turns heads at every glance
  • Solar Battery - Variable based on sun-exposure, Instinct can provide unprecedented battery life to those that explore under the sun
  • Military Standard 810 - Instinct is built to the U.S. Military Standard 810 for thermal, shock and water resistance (rated to 100 meters)

  • Sports Apps - Use preloaded activity profiles for swimming, running, biking, hiking, rowing, strength and more
  • Wrist-Based Heart Rate - Get heart rate data¹ along with alerts if your heart rate stays too high or too low while you're at rest. Guage how hard your heart is working during activities, even underwater.
  • Pulse Ox - For altitude acclimation or sleep monitoring, a Pulse Ox² Sensor uses light beams at your wrist to gauge how well your body is absorbing oxygen
  • Stress Tracking - Heart rate variability is used to calculate your stress level score, so you can see if you're having a calm, balanced or stressful day
  • Body Battery Energy Monitor - Optimize your body's energy reserves, using heart rate variability, stress, sleep and other data to gauge when you're ready to be active or when you may need to rest
  • Multi-GNSS Support - Access multiple global navigation satellite systems (GPS, GLONASS and Galileo) to track in more challenging environments than GPS alone
  • ABC Sensors - Navigate your next trail with ABC sensors, including an altimeter for elevation data, barometer to monitor weather and three-axis electronic compass
