    Very sharp beautiful pictures !! Thank you !

    Yes this Instinct is really a new animal standing on the shoulders of various Fenix versions ! It is light and fast !!
    SO light and sturdy I'm not afraid to wear on the right wrist with the B5000 on the left wrist !!

    BTW
    I'm looking for a way to transmit waypoint from GC or Garmin Explorer app into the Instinct if you got any hints !

    I can transmit from the Instinct to the Garmin Explorer app by simple sync but not the other way around...
    I’m not that strong when it comes to the Navigation side. I’m still trying to figure out how to Navigate and create breadcrumbs at certain points of my Walk, Hike, etc.

    You should go back to your post on Garmin’s site, someone responded with an idea for you to try.

    I got an answer:

    "Have you configured a specific Collection in the Explore app to sync with your watch? (have a look in the watch settings in the Exolore app to see what’s there already). Collections are a bit like Playlists in iTunes , when you configure to only sync a specific Playlist (Collection) with a given device; not just syncing the whole Library. Once a collection has been set up, you just need to select the Waypoint from the Library, add it to the Colection and then it should sync over to the watch. Happily anything new on the watch will automatically sync to both the Collection and Library on Explore."

    From a forumite in the Garmin forums...And it worked !!

    The more i look at this watch the more i like it.
    Answer for a thread on G-Shock forum comparing this Garmin to PRW3000 is even more clear.
    I think for every single PRW there will be 10-20 Garmins sold.

    You know, I was actually thinking about this, this morning. This watch feels like wearing a PRW-3000. While it’s not fair to compare this to that, as the 3000 came out 5/6 years ago, it goes to show how far some companies have come and how others haven’t made a dent.

    Baselworld will be very important event for Casio next year. If you see “more of the same”, then it may be a downward spiral for Casio. Their business model of coming out with different color schemes of the same watch for the collectors will only get them so far.

    It was discussed at G-Shock forum. Special editions work for them so far, but today Garmin as company makes more money and spends more on R&D than Casio.
    Casio is moving at their pace and hopefully it will stay current.
    Garmin never was a watch company, they been wearable company (meaning putting technology on your wrist) while Casio was and is watch company and design watches.
    Example as BT watch Casio G-Shock with BT 6900 has 2yr battery life, it not even limitation for designers at Garmin.
    Casio not really into GPS running watches at all while Garmin is.
    It just happened what people can live with wearable since it looks like (ghmmmm size of modern watches) modern watch and really OK to charge it (it takes 30min during morning coffee anyway).
    It should be special!

    This review might possibly make me buy the instinct before black Friday! It's honestly between the instinct and the Fenix 5 sapphire (not plus). Does anyone know if you can push sleep patterns and heart monitor functions to GC through BT or does it have to be hard wired?

    Heart rate and sleep patterns upload to Garmin Connect via your phone’s Bluetooth automatically.
