Garmin presents the new Instinct Crossover, which complements the Instinct series, which is known for rugged hybrid smartwatches, with the three new hybrid solar smartwatch models Instinct Crossover, Instinct Crossover Solar, and Instinct Crossover Solar Tactical.
Garmin has unveiled its new Garmin Instinct crossover smartphone series. It expands the tough Instinct series with the three hybrid models Instinct Crossover, Instinct Crossover Solar, and Instinct Crossover Solar Tactical.
All three new hybrid watch models offer an analogue movement with classic hands and combine this with a display and smart functions as well as the robustness you are used to from the Instinct models. The new hybrid smartwatches are heat-resistant, shockproof, and water-resistant to 10 ATM and meet the military standard MIL-STD-810.
These luminescent analog watch hands are bright, easy to read, and incredibly reliable. Built-in RevoDrive technology delivers accurate analog timekeeping so you can have confidence in being right on time. RevoDrive technology delivers accurate analog timekeeping in even the most demanding of environments.
The many smart functions of the Garmin Instinct Crossover are displayed there, including more than 40 sports apps and the results of 24/7 heart rate, stress level, respiratory rate, and oxygen saturation measurement. In addition, the hybrid watch provides detailed physiological measurements that provide information about the training status and stress focus, VO2max values, recovery times, and training effects.
In addition to a navigation function via multi-satellite reception (GPS, GLONASS, and GALILEO) and ABC sensors with functions such as Reference Point or TracBack, the three Instinct Crossover models also offer smart notifications from smartphones, weather information, Garmin Pay, and access to the Connect IQ Store.
