Garmin Instinct 2 Review
The Garmin Instinct 2 is a GPS-enabled smartwatch designed for outdoor enthusiasts and athletes with excellent built in apps and software for hiking and running. It has a rugged and durable design that is water-resistant up to 100 meters, and is built to withstand extreme temperatures, shock, and vibration. It features a 1.4-inch display with a resolution of 280 x 280 pixels, and is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3.
The watch comes with a range of activity tracking features, including GPS, heart rate monitoring, and a variety of sports modes. It also features a built-in compass, barometric altimeter, and accelerometer, as well as support for GPS, GLONASS, and Galileo satellite systems. Other features include smartphone notifications, music control, and compatibility with Garmin's Connect app for tracking and analyzing data.
One of the major improvements from the original Instinct is the addition of Garmin's Body Battery feature, which measures your energy levels throughout the day and provides personalized recommendations for rest and activity.
Overall, the Garmin Instinct 2 is a solid option for those looking for a durable and reliable GPS smartwatch with a range of outdoor and fitness tracking features. My only negative feeling about the Garmin instinct 2 is there is currently only 3 very bland colour options, my one is the graphite. there is also a Deep orchid and Poppy which in my opinion are just as bland. I might try and paint customise the watch face bezel...I'll show pictures and video when its finished.
I've just received this watch on March 7th 2023, I've only ran once with the watch and my initial impressions were really good, reading the running data on the fly was excellent and the Garmin Connect App is brilliant to use. I'll do more in-depth reviews on future hikes and runs including trail running and will update on this article page. If you have any questions about the Garmin Instinct 2 or buying a Garmin watch in Cyprus, get in touch with me at the next Limassol Running Club run or Rejuvenation Hiking meet-up.
Garmin Instinct 2 is available in Cyprus for â¬299.99, with a typical battery life of one month, I really don't see the need to pay the extra â¬100 for the solar version.
Two accessories that I got for my Garmin Instinct 2 from Amazon DE, although the watch has Corning Gorilla Glass 3, I still feel better having a glass screen protector. I also got a nice navy blue strap to add some colour to the very dull graphite watch.
