Holiday Finds: Go full stealth mode with the Garmin Instinct Tactical Edition

Wondering what to get your outdoorsy and adventurous buddy?

Garmin has a new addition to its Instinct outdoor watch and it’s got some cool upgrades that techie adventure junkies will love.

The Garmin Instinct Tactical Edition retains many of the features of the original Instinct, but adds a bunch of upgrades to help you out on your adventures: night-vision compatibility mode, Jumpmaster, dual-position GPS formatting, preloaded tactical activity, and waypoint projection. The Instinct Tactical Edition also includes a new stealth mode for off-grid functionality.

The night-vision feature reduces the backlight settings of the screen so that it won’t interfere with the function of night vision goggles.

To go about undetected in your outdoor pursuits, the stealth mode prevents storage and sharing of GPS position and disables wireless comms. When operating in stealth mode, GPS location position is visible on the device but locations are not shared or saved to device memory.

The Instinct Tactical Edition is water-resistant to 100 meters and features a scratch-resistant display that’s built to military toughness standards.

It’s available in four color options—Black, Coyote Tan, Camo–Graphite, and Camo-Coyote Tan—at a suggested retail price of P21,995. It’s available online at and at the following Garmin Brand Stores: Glorietta 5, SM Megamall, SM MOA, Uptown Bonifacio, Alabang Town Center, SM Aura, SM North Edsa, The Podium, Ayala Malls Vertis North, SM City Pampanga, Shangri-La Plaza, SM City Cebu, SM Lanang, and Festive Walk.

You may also check it out at select Rustan’s and SM department stores; Meridian, Watch Republic, and Washington stores; Olympic Village; ROX; Toby’s; RUNNR; Chris Sports; and URBAN stores.
