Our complaints of the Instinct 2 are that it has a lower resolution screen that's monochrome rather than color, and has no touch controls. It also lacks Wi-Fi connectivity, and can't connect to all the same cycling accessories. It's less glam, with a bezel made from resin rather than stainless steel, but it's also lighter, which is a plus.
If you want a watch with great battery life that you can also use to navigate new areas, you'll be better served by the Garmin Enduro 2. Otherwise the Instinct 2 is a tough adventure watch that's well suited to long off-grid adventures.
