Built to Endure Like You

The fiber-reinforced polymer case adds strength and durability, and the chemically strengthened, scratch-resistant display is high-contrast enough to read in bright sunlight. Plus, the fully vented silicone bands include two independent, removable keeper loops to ensure a secure fit and to keep you from getting caught on things.

Monitor and Train

The Instinct GPS watch monitors your heart rate, activity stress throughout the day, so you know how much you do — and how hard you’re working to do it. When you’re ready to train, we’ve got you covered with preloaded activity profiles for running, biking, swimming, and more.
