Equipped with multiple global navigation satellite systems (GPS, GLONASS and Galileo), the INSTINCT can help track users’ location in more challenging environments than with just GPS alone. With built-in wrist based heart rate monitor, users can also track daily activity, stress, sleep and other wellness data.
Whether camping, on a training run or going through day-to-day activities, INSTINCT keeps track of heart rate, steps taken, distance traveled, calories burned and more. Hiking, running, biking, swimming, kayaking and skiing are just a few of the activities supported on the device. Through heart rate variability, the Instinct can track stress levels, allowing the user to be more aware of when physical or emotional sources may cause stress levels to rise.
