Most of us have many chargers, possibly one in every room, but it’s not always enough. If you’re away from home and on the go or enjoying outdoor activities, there aren’t always ample options. However, the Garmin Instinct Solar Outdoor Smartwatch can take care of the charging itself with its solar charging capabilities. The addition of built-in sports apps and health monitoring make it a go-to accessory for outdoor activities.
While getting more use out of the smartwatch with its solar-charging capabilities, it’s also rated to withstand water up to 100 meters and is designed to meet U.S. military standard 810 for thermal, shock, and water resistance.
The Garmin Instinct Solar Outdoor Smartwatch has a built-in three-axis compass and barometric altimeter to aid you in activities such as camping and hiking. It also has multiple global navigation satellite systems, including GPS, to track your location in challenging environments. It will also track your workouts, such as running, biking, swimming, and strength training.
Get a better understanding of your health as it monitors your wellness throughout the day. Body Battery energy monitoring will track your heart rate and provide estimates of heart rate, stress, and sleep.
The smartwatch will even measure pulse ox, but it should be noted that it’s not a medical device and shouldn’t be used to diagnose you. If you see something alarming, be sure to follow up with your doctor.
Save $150 on this solar smartwatch in your choice of colors and pay just $249.99. Alternatively, you can get an Eports edition, get a tactical edition, or get it in a package deal along with a smartwatch that isn’t so rugged.
