The watch is waterproof up to 100 meters while maintaining thermal and shock-resistant built to endure. Whether hunting, scouting or trail running, you’ll have access to multiple GNSS including GPS, GLONASS and Galileo to track in more challenging environments than GPS alone. ABC sensor feature provides use with altimeter, barometer and 3-axis compass for all the navigation information you can use. Take out the guess work with Tracback Routing helps navigate you back to camp or the truck at the end of a long day. Smart Notifications allow you to receive emails, texts and other alerts straight to your wrist when the Instinct 2 Solar is paired with a compatible phone. Have the ability to download custom watch faces, data fields and get apps and widgets from the Connect IQ Store feature. Get all the data tracking you need with the built in sports apps, HIIT workouts, VO2 Max, daily workout suggestions and recovery time.
