Garmin watch with solar charging tech!

The base model is 45mm in diameter and the Instinct 2S is at 40mm. There are versions that are designed for recreational activities and serious professions. In total, there are 240 possible combinations if you will take colors into account.

Anyway, the display is 0.9-inch big with a resolution of 128 x 128 pixels. The Instincts uses a monochrome transflective memory-in-pixel LCD for legibility and longer battery life. The watches also have positioning (GPS, GLONASS, Galileo) along with ABC sensors (Altimeter, Barometer, Compass), thermometer, optical heart rate sensor, and blood-oxygen saturation sensor.

For connectivity, the watch has Bluetooth and ANT+ connectivity that allows the smart fitness watch to read data from other sensors like a chest strap heart monitor or even send its own data to something like a Peloton stationary bike and more. This can also have the ability to receive notifications from your iOS or Android smartwatch.

When it comes to the battery, the Garmin Instinct 2 Solar can be used even without charging if you spend at least 3 hours a day outside. The condition needed is 50,000 lux. In comparison, noon in summer can be over 100,000 lux.

This feature is completely applicable to the 45mm model. The 40mm mode can only do it on battery saver mode.

Garmin Pay is also available on Solar-powered watches.
