Technical Features for Garmin Instinct Solar Surf

The Garmin Instinct Solar is a reliable outdoor GPS watch that is built to the U.S. military standard 810G for thermal, shock and water resistance (rated to 100 meters). The fiber-reinforced polymer case adds strength and durability, and the chemically-strengthened, scratch-resistant display is high-contrast enough to read in bright sunlight, so you can take it with you into the extremes you face every day. Plus, the fully vented silicone bands include two independent, removable keeper loops to ensure a secure fit and to keep you from getting caught on things.

The Garmin Instinct comes with solar charging and can provide unprecedented battery life to those that explore under the sun. It has built-in 3-axis compass and barometric altimeter that help you keep your bearings. Take the guesswork out of your return journey by using the TracBack feature to navigate the same route back to start.The Instinct GPS watch monitors your heart rate, activity and stress throughout the day, so you know how much you do - and how hard you’re working to do it.
