Garmin announced the Instinct 2 Series, a new addition to the popular Instinct family of purpose-built smartwatches with robust lifestyle features, new sizes, colourways and additional health monitoring features – driven by limitless battery power in selected models such as the Instinct 2 Solar. The Instinct 2 Series consist of six models with a retail price ranging from RM 1,630 to RM 2,330.
The Instinct 2 Series
The Instinct 2 Series introduces significant battery life gains, providing up to four weeks of continuous use while in smartwatch mode. Equipped with advanced solar technology, selected Instinct 2 Solar models also offer unlimited battery life when switched to the smartwatch mode. In addition to setting an all new battery record, the Instinct 2 series consists of a slimmer profile in two sizes – a traditional 45mm bezel and a new Instinct 2S with a smaller 40mm bezel.
“The Instinct 2 Series is built to be bold and challenges you to stand out from the crowd.” He added, “but there is more than meets the eye with the Instinct 2 Series. It combines adventurous colors with Garmin’s industry-leading wrist-based technology to be more than just a smartwatch – the Instinct 2 becomes a trusted tool to help you live life on your own terms.” Mr. Scoppen Lin, Assistant General Manager, Garmin Asia
Designed for life
This time, the new Instinct 2 series breaks away from traditional colourways with numerous colors designs such as Deep Orchid, Poppy and Neo-Tropic, available on the Instinct 2 Solar, standard models (non-solar), Surf, Tactical and Camo editions. Paying homage to the rugged Instinct and Instinct Solar Series, this series remains built to military standard 810 for thermal and shock resistance and is water rated to 100 meters. The Instinct 2 also offers a new high-resolution, easy-to-read display protected by chemically strengthened, scratch-resistant glass.
For individuals who want to take their passion to the next level, the Instinct 2 Series provides three purpose-built editions with dedicated features:
• Surf Editions: Dedicated watersports activities such as surf, windsurfing and kiteboarding, as well as a tides widget, keep users up to date on ocean conditions. Users can keep track of their activities and review them later through Surfline Sessions™ compatibility. Named after famous surf breaks, Surf editions are available in Instinct 2 and Instinct 2S with or without solar.
• Tactical Editions: Popular with military personnel, the Instinct 2 Solar – Tactical Edition adds dedicated tactical features such as a Kill Switch, Stealth Mode, Night Vision Goggle Compatibility, Dual Format Position Coordinates, and Jumpmaster Activity mode. Available in Coyote Tan or Black.
• Camo Editions: Graphite and Mist Camo patterns let individuals blend in or stand out depending on their location, be it the concrete jungle or actual jungle.
