    Re: Garmin Instinct - light and powerful

    i got my information about that spot in the middle from a review on youtube. i was wondering how this would work, too. i thought of some kind of tiny dual display, like casio wsd-f uses. or a spot in the middle, that is all black. ok, that was naive and silly maybe, in confess.

    and sure: such a tiny ring, from nowadays technological stance, wont be enough to power a gps-watch entirely. still a step in the right direction. (nothing compared to my wristband solarpanel idea *cough*).

    Re: Garmin Instinct - light and powerful

    Well thanks to this thread I just ordered one. I've had a Fenix 1,2,3 and 5x as well as a Suunto Spartan Ultra, and a 9 Baro. Looking for something more readable, and simple but that still has the GPS and Alt/Baro functions. Hopefully this fits the bill and isnt too small on my 7.5" wrist

    My 7.5" wrist likes it just fine:



    After the 5x, I think you will particularly like the high contrast display!

    anyone have a shot of what the altimeter graph looks like? Wondering what the duration of time shown is. I have a Suunto 9 baro on my wirst now, and the alt graph is only the last two hours.

    On the Instinct, the Alt widget is fixed at 4 Hours:

    Actually, you can change the alt widget from 4 hrs to 12, 24 or 48 hours in the settings menu.

    Actually, you can not!

    It is possible to change the Barometer widget to show different measurement duarations - 6, 12, 24 and 48 Hours - but this feature is not available for the Altimeter widget, it is fixed at 4 Hours.

    Really impressed with how many features are packed into this watch, its going to take a little bit of adjustment getting used to how small it is vs the Fenix 5x and my Suunto 9 Baro. It is really comfortable though!
