    That makes sense. I honestly jumped on board without knowing much about the brand ó folksí pics sold me lol

    I suppose itís more of a durable fitness tracker, a blend of a Fitbit, apple watch and G-Shock.

    You'll not regret the purchase.

    I have Garmin watches/devices/wearables since many years (Fenix2, Fenix 3, Fenix 3 HR, vivofit, vivosmart 1/3/4,..., Edge 1000) and the Instinct is something special.

    My wife has Samsung gear fit2 and perfectly happy with it pas 3.5 years. She was wearing a watch on few formal occasions.
    For her it totally replaced watch.
    Limited span of use of wearables is no more than average use of average watch. Most people do not use them more than 5 or so years.
    At 300$ Garmin not that of budget drain. You will spend on your sports gear and replace it. It is sport/outdoor gear.

Obviously that won't be an issue for everyone. I had a Fitbit Ionic, but didn't like it at all. I don't need a lot of other fancy features, so I've been reluctant to drop $600+ or so for a Fenix5, but the Instinct is a really nice-looking option that does everything else that I would want from a fitness tracker, for a lot less. I have an Amazfit Stratos incoming, so I'll give that a try. I do wish it looked more like the Instinct though!

    Countdown timer & vibration alarm proving very useful in a noisy environment where an audible alarm is useless.Name:  E405D85E-DA19-43F6-81DB-F42D3AC39E94.jpeg

    It has an awesome vibration alert. The Timer function on the Instinct is by far the BEST that Iíve seen with any brand or watch.



    Multiple Timerís at the same time, all showing the countdown.

    Re: Garmin Instinct - light and powerful

    Well, after reading all these posts, I had to get one. I have owned a Fenix 3 before and currently have a Fenix 5. Like others have said above, the display is awesome in comparison. It is so bright compared to other Garmin displays that I literally went into a dark closet to make sure the backlight wasnít on.

    I like the look better than my Fenix also (especially since I wear G-shocks a lot). It is so light weight and comfortable.
    Iím not a heavy user, and I didnít use most of the features of my Fenix, so this watch has all the features I want.

    I have just had it a few hours, but I think I am really going to like this watch.

    That is fantastic news. I lift weights for exercise so Iíve been looking for a good timer. I generally use a G-Shock, but sometimes the beeps are hard to hear so I have to glance at it often.

    The Instinct is at home, so I have to get back and finally check it out.

    @Nolander

    Just get yourself a good screen protector:

    https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07JGLCVV5..._W1e-Bb1KM6ECK

    It enhances the watch look a lot.
