Pretty close to the cheapest it's been ($394) according to camel^3.
Picked up one about a month back and it only comes off my wrist when charging while in the shower. This has great sleep tracking including SpO2 levels. Doc wanted me to go for a sleep study, but changed his mind after seeing the watch data.
I’ve had the non-solar Instinct since the day it came out, and am loving it. Battery is starting to degrade now though (originally went 2 weeks between charging, now every couple of days), so thanks - just ordered this to replace it
Interesting about the battery. Do you run it down flat before charging? I top mine up daily, with the settings I have it says 12 days power reserve. Waiting to be let out of lockdown to see how the Solar goes.
not generally - just when it gets low. I was using it a couple of times a week for bike rides and it was still getting more than a week between charges.
As mentioned, its every few days now, or it will run out of batteries. And if I actually use it for GPS, I only get 1 day.
Still happy with it - I literally went out and bought it the day it hit the self (17/10/2018 apparently - interestingly the new watch is due to be delivered 11/10/21, but we'll see!) as I had been waiting for a watch with like this for ages (I am rough on watches and destroy nice things!).
Thanks. Was just hoping I would get a few more than 2 years out of it. Looking for best battery management. Picked my Camo version up for $280 from Amazon a couple of months back. At the moment it's my daily driver, but I have better looking watches when they let us out of lockdown. This will mainly be used on Holidays and Weekends away due to power reserve, plus sleep tracking at night.
Would caution buying this. No Google Pay. No Spotify integration. Black and White. Better models out there in my opinion.
Your negatives are positives to some people. I went from a Pebble to a Galaxy Watch and really don't like it. From my research this is about as close as I'm going to get to a pebble.
meh. Anything with those things is not robust, requires way more frequent charging, and costs more.
So I guess different people have different requirements.
