Designed to stand up to the challenges of working in tough environments, this rugged, reliable outdoor watch features All-day Stress tracking powered by Firstbeat analytics. A fiber-reinforced polymer case ensures the Garmin instinct is thermal, shock, and water resistant (rated to 100 meters), in accordance with U.S. military standard 810G.

All-day Stress tracking onboard the Garmin instinct works by scientifically interpreting heartbeat data to reveal sympathetic and parasympathetic activity within the autonomic nervous system. As a result, the impact of daily routines and lifestyle choices become visible in powerful new ways.
