The Garmin Instinct 2 Surf Solar Edition solar charging GPS smartwatch has everything you need for fun on the water. Now it comes in two sizes to fit every wrist. Do what you love with dedicated stand up paddleboarding, surfing, windsurfing and kitesurfing activities while training your way with built-in sports apps at the wrist and smart notifications so you don’t miss out on what matters. Push boundaries, but stay on track with access to more satellites and 24/7 health monitoring.

At their core the Garmin Instinct 2 and the Garmin Instinct 2 Solar are the same; it really is the Solar charging aspect that makes this watch stand out for many. This means the Garmin Instinct 2 Solar is arguably the most versatile watch in the Garmin Instinct range. Due to the solar charging of the battery the Instinct Solar lasts much longer than that of the Instinct. It's not unreasonable for you to expect up to 50 days if you charge it with solar energy during use.
