    Just got mine, it really is a great watch.

    One question regarding the backlight, it appears it’s side lit from 3 of the 4 sides, the right side doesn’t appear to have a light from it, the light is pretty even though.

    You can see the light if you tilt it on the 3 sides coming under the screen if that makes sense?

    Just wanted to confirm this is normal like others?

    Thanks all.

    Re: Garmin Instinct - light and powerful

    Very interesting watch ...

    A few questions about the basic watch mode:

    - Stopwatch
    What is its accuracy: 1 second, 1/10 second or 1/100 second?
    What is the maximum measurement time?

    - Timer
    What is its accuracy: 1 second or 1 minute?
    What is the maximum configurable time?

    - Alarm
    I have seen that you have up to 10 alarms, but can it be specified for a specific day/month/year or only for a day or week?
    Do it have the classic casio hourly chime?

    Thanks!

    1 s accuracy, maximum is apparently 23h, 59m, 59s
    Looks like it is configurable to automatically restart.

    Also, you can have “multiple” timers as well:





    This is a feature that’s really nice, my MK1 doesn’t have this. Nice when you have a 3 year old who’s only allowed to be on the tablet for a certain period of time

    Oh and not only do they have Sunrise/Sunset but they just added a Moon widget:

    Yes Odie, it's a great feature those multi timers (and you seems to use it very frequently... ).
    May be the only thing that is missing is a tide graph.

    Been asked on the forums for another update at it seems it will be the way the Instinct will be improved.
    The beta program is already on.

    This is a very user friendly watch!

    Been lost in a foreign city in the night , under the pouring rain with bags and packets held under my coats.
    I was able to easily read the navigation application on my Instinct which guided me back to my car. It is reliable and easy to use.

    Where did you find that widget? Are you using a beta-firmware? The only thing I managed to find was the very basic moonrise-graphic in the eye-display...

    Greetings, Tichy
