First day with the graphite Instinct. (I wanted the white tundra but it was not available...)
I come from Garmin Flagship the Fenix 5X Plus and I have decided to give a chance to the Outdoor watch.
The price ! It is almost a third of my Fenix 5X Plus.
The lightness ! It is a watch to forget while on your wrist.
The display !! No colours but so easy to read, I first thought the backlight was blocked on "on" !!!
The Bezel is really protecting the glass.
Now I was not certain about the low resolution of the screen but eventually the display is so clever it is a pleasure to use: I don't mind about the low res... The fonts used are perfectly readable and the Instinct is generous in informations. The use of the "Eye" on the upper right with animations and pertinent information is absolutely brilliant.
The ergonomy is the almost same as the Fenix Series with little twists: for example hold the set key bring your to alarms/timers/stopwatch/GPS sync Time... And a long push on ABC get you to the ABC functions (a short press goes to the widgets like on a Fenix)
So the ergos are very clever !! And you got already a very easy to navigate into the menus and you can manage to be at a clock or two away from your favorite functions !!
Something I really appreciate: the watch is really responsive: no delay between the screens and menus. This is a pure pleasure to use it.
Black and white but gorgeous: there is something half vintage and half military in the way in this display almost like a e-ink watch. This is something to experiment in a shop to see how clear and and easy to read at any angle it is.
There is many more things I will re-discover on this very light (52 grams) and brilliant watch.
It is fast in GPS acquiring and fast also in "Finding My Phone". I'm amazed !!
Stay tuned for some update !
