When The Going Gets Tough, Trust in Garmin Instinct


The world we live in today is not the world we used to know. Gone were the days where life was played by books; it is being intuitive. While logic plays an important role in the decision-making process, in the end, instinct gets the final say. And if you were looking for an accessory that epitomizes your intuitive trait, look out for the new Garmin Instinct outdoor GPS watch.

Designed with urban intuitive adventurers in mind, Garmin Instinct is a reliable tool built to endure challenging environments. It is constructed to the U.S military standards (MIL-STD-810G) for thermal, shock and water resistance with a fiber reinforced polymer case. It can withstand temperatures of -20° to 60°, and multi-directional shock testing from a drop distance of 122 cm. Its water resistance is rated to 100 meters, and it is also corrosion resistant, retaining its durability in salt-rich maritime environments.

“We are thrilled to add the Garmin Instinct to our adventure watch line-up, as it is a tough outdoor smartwatch that is rugged and reliable,” said Mr. Engelhard (Al) Sundoro, Managing Director, Garmin South Asia. “It is built to military standards and is shockproof, waterproof and thermal resistant, while also supporting an active outdoor lifestyle with advanced navigation features and fitness tracking, through its wrist heart rate and built-in GPS”.

While in the field, feel confident exploring off the beaten path thanks to its multiple GNSS satellite networks that helps to track a user’s location in more challenging environments than with just GPS alone. Garmin Instinct also provides comprehensive navigation and tracking functionalities, using GPS plus ABC (altimeter, barometer and compass). Before venturing out, use the Garmin Explore app to plan the trip in advance and when it’s time to head back to camp, the TracBack feature on the watch can navigate the same route back to the original starting point.

With built-in wrist-based heart rate, users can monitor daily activity, stress level, sleep and other wellness data. Whether camping, on a training run or going through day-to-day activities, Garmin Instinct keeps track of heart rate, steps taken, distance travelled, calories burned and more. Hiking, running, biking, swimming, kayaking and skiing are just a few of the activities supported on the device. Through heart rate variability, the new Garmin adventure watch innovation can track stress levels, allowing the user to be more aware of when physical or emotional sources may cause stress levels to rise.

Garmin Instinct has a suggested retail price of RM1,450.00. It is available now at Garmin’s headquarters (AECO Technologies), and concept stores around Malaysia, namely Mid Valley Megamall, Digital Mall Petaling Jaya, 1 Utama Shopping Centre, Taman Lagenda – Melaka, Juru Autocity – Penang, Bukit Indah – Johor, Paradigm Mall Parkson – Johor, Kuantan East Coast Mall – Pahang, and Kuching Vivacity Megamall – Sarawak (Garmin Premium Reseller).
