Garmin Instinct 2X Solar review: In brightest day, in blackest night

The Garmin Instinct series stands out for its rugged, solar-recharging watches. Not counting the spin-off models for truck drivers, soldiers, or surfers, most Garmin Instinct 2 buyers probably choose it for its long-lived simplicity. You strap it on your wrist, start an activity, and then forget about it.

With the Garmin Instinct 2X Solar, the prolific fitness watch brand changed its strategy a bit. On the software front, the 2X is far less bare-bones than its predecessors, adding popular tools like Training Readiness and the Morning Report that the slow Instinct 2 chip couldn’t handle. And for hardware, Garmin poached the more efficient solar panel and LED flashlight from the thousand-dollar Fenix 7X.
