Garmin Instinct 2X Solar


What’s Included | Specs | Pictures

The Instinct 2X Solar has everything we love from the Instinct 2 Solar, along with a whole host of new features. These new features include Applied Ballistics integration, an onboard illuminator, incident detection, and a larger 50mm bezel. Garmin didn’t stop there, either. With the larger screen and other optimizations, the Instinct 2X produces 50% more solar power than the Instinct 2, increasing the already impressive battery life. Water-rated to 100 meters and tested to US MIL-STD-810 for thermal and shock resistance, the 2X will readily handle whatever you put it through.

Do I get the Instinct 2 or Instinct 2X?
Preference plays a big part here. They are both similarly priced and the 2X has a lot of new features. However, the 2x has a 50mm bezel, which makes it quite a bit larger than the Instinct 2’s 45mm bezel, so if you don’t like big watches, the 2X may not be for you.
