70 days without recharging for Garmin Instinct Crossover smartwatches

Specifications Garmin Instinct Crossover

This applies to models that are powered by solar cells. Power saving mode lets the clock run almost “indefinitely”.

Specifications Garmin Instinct Crossover

Like other watches in the Instinct family, the crossover model is aimed at outdoor enthusiasts. Therefore, watches are produced in a protective case and are reasonably resistant to high temperatures. The model remains operational to a depth of 100 m.

Notifications are shown on a monochrome display. Instinct Crossover supports Garmin Pay.

The smartwatch tracks the following health indicators:

• blood oxygen saturation;

• sleep quality;

• heart rate;

• fitness marker VO2 max.

In addition to health monitoring and auto-load features, Garmin Instinct Crossover supports GPS mode, including TracBack (finding a starting point) and Reference Point (tracking the user’s position relative to a specific point).

The watch complies with the military standard MIL-STD-810. The Tactical Edition is compatible with night vision devices, offers a stealth mode as well as “Dual Format” GPS and “Extreme” functions.

Garmin Instinct Crossover Offline Runtime

In smartwatch mode, the Solar Edition lasts up to 70 days. In power-saving mode, when only the time/date is displayed and the stopwatch is available, the clock runs almost “indefinitely”. However, keep in mind the requirements for charging: spend 3 hours a day with lighting around 50,000 lux.

The base model (without solar cells) can work in smartwatch mode for about a month. Activating GPS reduces the operating time to 110 hours.

The Garmin Instinct Crossover starts at $500. In the US, the solar option costs $50 more.
