When you can rely on Instinct, the world can rely on you. This rugged, reliable outdoor GPS watch is built to the U.S. Military standard 810G for thermal, shock, and water resistance (rated to 100 meters). The fiber-reinforced polymer case adds strength and durability, and the chemically strengthened, scratch-resistant display is readable in bright sunlight. You can also activate “night vision mode,” which reduces backlight Settings to a level that doesn’t interfere with night vision goggles’ operation. 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.

- Whether you’re returning to camp or your car, the TracBack feature is designed to make it easy to find your way out of the wilderness. TracBack remembers the path you took, navigating you back along the same route.
- The Instinct – Tactical Edition GPS watch monitors your heart rate, activity, and 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. It also has mission-specific training options, including Jumpmaster and a preloaded tactical activity.
- You’ve never been one to follow the beaten path — that’s where Instinct comes in. GPS, GLONASS, and Galileo satellite network capability tracks in more challenging environments than GPS alone. The built-in three-axis compass and barometric altimeter help you keep your bearings. Take the guesswork out of your return journey by using the TracBack feature to navigate the same route back to start.
- Enable stealth mode to hide your GPS position and disable wireless connectivity and communication. Access projected waypoints and a dual-format GPS coordinate data page that supports the display of MGRS, degrees/minutes/seconds, and more.
- Features don’t work without GPS
- The battery life is only 16 hours of work when the watch is on GPS mode.
