Heart rate measurement
Get heart rate data along with alerts if your heart rate stays too high or too low while you’re at rest. Gauge how hard your heart is working during activities, even underwater.
Use preloaded activity profiles for swimming, running, biking, hiking, rowing, strength and more.
Take the guesswork out of your return journey by using this feature to navigate the same route back to your starting point.
Access multiple global navigation satellite systems (GPS, GLONASS and Galileo) to track in more challenging environments than GPS alone.
Navigate the next track with ABC sensors, including altimeter for altitude data, barometer for weather monitoring and three-axis electronic compass.
Pulse Ox2 Sensor
For altitude acclimation and sleep monitoring, a Pulse Ox2 sensor gauges how well your body is absorbing oxygen.
Body Battery Energy Monitor
With Body Battery: Optimise the body's energy reserves by using heart rate variability, stress, sleep and other data to measure when you are ready to be active or when you need rest.
Advanced Sleep Monitoring
Get a full breakdown of your light, deep and REM sleep stages as well as Pulse Ox2 and respiration data. View it all on a dedicated widget that includes your stress score and other insights.
Heart rate variability is used to calculate your stress level score, so you can see if you are having a calm, balanced or stressful day.
Pair For Satellite Communication
Pair Instinct with an inReach® device (sold separately; active satellite subscription required) to view and send messages, get weather alerts on your wrist and trigger an SOS to the GEOS 24/7 emergency response team.
