Garmin Instinct – weekend review. Replaces my Pebble 2 and Apple Watch Series 4 When I saw that this watch was being released, I read up on it and purchased it an hour later from an authorized Garmin retailer on Amazon, receiving it the next day. A little backstory…I used a GShock for years and loved it. I graduated to my first smart watch with the original Apple Watch. I had a love/hate relationship with it needing to be charged daily, the always-off screen, overall slowness, to name a few annoyances. It was just really cool all the “things” it could do…

The perfect smartwatch for people who dislike smartwatches. This model came out from Garmin at the same time I was starting to seriously want a device for a mixture of tracking activity, in my case most of which is outdoor oriented, like hiking and riding my mountain bike, plus I wanted to start exploring some physical data from a heart rate monitor as I get more active.When smartwatches first started becoming popular, I thought they were pretty stupid and redundant, and in my mind a teeny tiny 2″ screen will never replace a phone screen…

So far, so awesome The Garmin Instinct is really great, but maybe not as “fancy” as some might want. First of all, as a reference, I already own the Garmin Fenix 5 plus… meaning I have the “fancier” version of the Instinct. But the ruggedness of the Instinct, and the fact that it totally reminds me of the screen on the old Fitbit Surge is why I like it! Think about it… take the Fitbit Surge’s super-readable (always-on) square face… and wrap a round rugged bezel around it… throw in Garmin Fenix…
