Garmin Instinct 2 is the smartwatch that gives you unlimited battery

Garmin has just announced a new line of smart watches that stand out for their promises of autonomy. Strictly speaking, the company says that some models will be able to work forever thanks to their solar charge.

The brand announced the Instinct 2 with a 45mm case, which is accompanied by the Instinct 2S with a 40mm case. Both models come in solar and non-solar options, but it’s the former that will catch the attention of more enthusiasts.

Garmin Instinct 2 are solar-charged smartwatches

Let’s talk about the most interesting feature of these watches and it is, without a doubt, its solar charge. This means that you will only need sunlight to recharge your watch battery.

Garmin states that the 45mm Instinct 2 will require at least 3 hours of exposure to sunlight under 50,000 lumen conditions. If you are one of those people who constantly go outside, you can use this smart watch without ever worrying about charging the battery.

However, it is important to note that infinite autonomy depends on certain conditions. In the case of the 45mm model of the Instinct 2, you won’t be able to achieve this feat of constantly using GPS. Instead, the Instinct 2S model will only achieve infinite autonomy in the battery saving option.

As for the non-solar-charged versions of the Garmin Instinct 2, they can reach a maximum autonomy of 65 days in the 45mm model. Those who opt for the smaller model (40mm) will be limited to 50 days of use, which is impressive enough.

Now let’s talk about the technical characteristics of the Garmin Instinct 2. The 45mm model has a 0.9″ x 0.9″ screen, while the 40mm model has a 0.79″ x 0.79″ screen, both with a resolution of 128 x 128 pixels.

These panels are monochrome, that is, in black and white, which helps to enhance its incredible autonomy. Still, the brand promises readability in all lighting conditions.

Garmin Instinct 2 comes with the usual fitness tracking features, with support for multiple sports. In fact, it will collect metrics like steps taken, calories burned, distance traveled, and more.

The health aspect wasn’t forgotten with heart rate sensors, oximetry, sleep and respiration monitoring and more. It has GPS; altimeter, barometer, compass and can be connected to Android and iOS smartphones via Bluetooth.

Finally, to inform you that the Garmin Instinct 2 is now available for purchase at Portuguese brand website. Prices are €349.99 for non-solar versions and €449.99 for solar versions.
