As promised, the review of the Garmin Instinct 2 Solar in case video is more your thing than written analysis (though be sure to check out the written one if you're interested in GPS, optical sensor and barometric altimeter graphs).

In this video I cover the top 10 things you need to know about the Garmin Instinct 2, which also entails the 40mm Instinct 2S - the new size - and the Solar version, which is the specific version I've been testing these past few weeks.

The advantage of the video is that it helps you see how things look on the watch screen, because it has its specific peculiarities in terms of the simulated dual screen, being monochrome and low processor speed to conserve battery. And if you come from the original Instinct also 1TP11You'll appreciate the difference in screen resolution.

Don't forget that if you like the video, please like it because it helps a lot for YouTube to show it to other users. Don't forget to subscribe also to the YouTube channelbecause that in turn helps the rest of the videos also gain importance with YouTube's algorithm.

  1. First of all, thank you very much for your analysis.

    Between the Garmin Instinct 2 solar and the Garmin Fénix 6 Pro, which one would you choose? Since in terms of price they are pretty evenly matched and in features as well.

    Thank you very much in advance.

    A salute.

      1. Thank you very much for your response.

        Honestly looking at reviews and reading I thought that in terms of wrist sensor the Instinct was slightly superior to the Fenix 6 Pro (only surpassed by the 7) and that in terms of applications (except for maps and little else) the Instinct was also better.

        I'm not going to give it a great use honestly, that's why I had opted for the Instinct 2 but seeing them quite similar in price I entered the doubt, Is it worth the Garmin Fénix 6 Pro? (it throws me back that one is from 2018 and the other is from this year.

        Thank you very much in advance and best regards.

        1. The sensor is somewhat more up to date, but in both cases they work correctly. The Instinct's is going to perform better because the watch is lighter, but it's not overly noticeable either.
