Hi Eric, please do a fitbit charge 3 review. I am looking forward to see that.

Nez Ram says:

For serious runners, Instinct does not offer in-depth information such as vo2max and other run dynamic data. Also, it’s poor screen layout and font visibility in low light situation makes it less than ideal for those who uses their running watch for high intensity track workouts. Just not there. But for those casual runners, it offers everything. I have returned mine and kept my Forerunner 645, which is far superior runners watch.

If it had a Ultra mode I’ll buy it

Riezman Iskandar says:

Oh man! Love the design and the price is pretty affordable too but if it couldn’t give me an accurate heart rate during my gym session, I gotta skip this one.

Navin Kumar says:

Its not a cross fit watch so we cant expect much on immediate heart rate.

Sherry Cammack says:

Thinking about trying this out. Currently trying out the Vantage M. I wear the Apple Watch for day wear. Great time to try new watches with the longer return policy that comes with the holidays. Only thing that bugs me with this watch is no VO2 Max..

John Manley says:

Favorite Garmin? Wow. Hey Eric, are you going to review the new Wear OS Fossil Sports?

Anh Nguyen Ngoc says:

Hey mate, nice view. Still waiting for fitbit charge 3

Derrish dev says:

Hey, when is the charge 3 review going live?


Rijald Drace says:

You missed that it dosent have vo2max for running

Amir Katorza says:

Hi Eric,
Can you review the Garmin tactix Charlie and compare it to the instinct?

Mickey Handel says:

You look hilarious riding the bike, lol.

chileanrhino says:

You are looking a bit too skinny, Eric. Your veins are popping out too much…I think I need to make you a blueberry pie soon! Love, Mom

Jan says:

Great review….Thank you!! I think they market the particular model you show as a red, but it almost looks like a burnt orange color to me. May I ask you what color it most resembled to your eye?

pratik wadkar says:

There seems practically no difference between this and amazfit bip, actually bip in better in some regards

Kerim Can says:

Still using vivoactive and it is great also apple watch is more usefull compare to the garmins

Tim Lara says:

Thanks, Eric! Really hard to decide between the Instinct and a Fenix 5+. I am interested in the advanced VO2Max metrics to track my improvements, so that makes it tougher that Garmin decided to omit those for obvious strategic reasons. Other than that, feature-wise the Instinct covers just about everything else I would use. The nicer maps and Spotify option on the F5+ are great to have, but honestly I pretty much always have my phone anyway, so not sure how much I would actually use/need those. Also, I’ve been a G-Shock fan forever, so even though the Instinct may not be everyone’s cup of tea, I actually prefer its styling over the F5.

Jose Arturo Restrepo Prada says:

Eric just a short question Garmin instinct vs amazfit stratos Which one should I pick?
