Record the number of waves surfed, maximum speed reached and distance traveled by using the surf activity profile.
See conditions — such as tide, wave height, wind and surf rating — for each of the five nearest surf spots, when paired with the Garmin Connect app on your compatible smartphone.
SURFLINE SESSIONS FEATURE
The Instinct 2 – Surf Edition smartwatch works with Surfline Sessions, which creates videos of every wave you ride in front of your Surfline camera2. So you can watch them later and see how you did with your Surfline Sessions subscription.
Use this activity profile to track your GPS position, speed, distance and heart rate while windsurfing.
On top of tracking your GPS position, speed, distance and heart rate while kiteboarding, this profile measures your elevation, so you can see jumps on a chart during and after the activity.
Whether you’re hiking, mountain biking, trail running or skiing, you’ll have access to multiple global navigation satellite systems (GPS, GLONASS and Galileo) to track in more challenging environments than GPS alone.
Navigate your next trail with ABC sensors, including an altimeter for elevation data, barometer to monitor weather and 3-axis electronic compass.
