This Camo Edition Garmin Instinct Solar is our new favorite backcountry hunting GPS watch. Not only will it keep a charge for over SEVEN WEEKS, but it works with other Garmin products, such as the Xero bow sight, and the inReach communication devices. Garmin also added Pulse Ox so you can track your bodies response to elevation. This watch really does everything you need, and looks great too!
This rugged GPS smartwatch boasts solar charging — giving incredible battery life in smartwatch and Expedition modes while outdoors. Monitor how your body uses energy by tracking heart rate, stress, estimated sleep and Pulse Ox (this is not a medical device and is not intended for use in the diagnosis or monitoring of any medical condition) — which helps give you a better understanding of your health and wellness. Get more out of the sports you love with preloaded activity profiles such as running, biking, swimming and more. Smart notifications (when paired with a compatible smartphone) at the wrist keep you connected to what matters. Multiple global navigation satellite systems (GPS, GLONASS and Galileo) help you track wherever your adventures take you.
