Features

Solar Battery

Variable based on sun-exposure, Instinct can provide unprecedented battery life to those that explore under the sun.

Miltary Standard 810

Instinct is built to the U.S. military standard 810 for thermal, shock and water resistance (rated to 100 metres).

Power Management

View how various settings and sensors impact your watch’s battery life, so you can make battery-extending changes on the fly.

Sports Apps

Use preloaded activity profiles for surfing, 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. Gauge 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

Optimise 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.

Trackback Routing

Take the guesswork out of your return journey by using this feature to navigate the same route back to your starting point.

Smart Notifications

Receive emails, texts and alerts right on your watch when paired with a compatible device.

Pair for Satellite Communication

Pair Instinct with an inReach® device (sold separately; active satellite subscription required) to view and send messages, get weather alerts on your wrist and trigger an SOS to the GEOS 24/7 emergency response team.

Calender View

Easily see your plans for the day with a dedicated calendar screen.
