Garmin Launches Affordable Action Watch

by editors on October 11, 2018

It’s funny to think of Garmin’s new Instinct GPS adventure watch as “affordable” when it weighs in at $299, however compared the $799 fenix 5+ it’s a downright bargain. The Instinct, which comes in three colors (Graphite, Tundra and Flame Red) is bursting with G-shock flavor and features a new fiber reinforced polymer case shape that visually differentiates it from the fenix while still keeping the familiar five-button layout. It doesn’t have built-in mapping, music storage, or Garmin Pay like its big brother, but it will handle the cycling, running, hiking, and swimming (not that any of us swim) tracking just fine: cadence and speed with sensors (ANT+ or bluetooth) sure, power, nope. For the official word from Garmin, please follow the jump.
