DO NOT USE WITH SCREEN PROTECTOR!
- I've used it several times
Solar charging dropped to zero after installing a high-quality tempered glass screen protector on my brand new Garmin Instinct Solar. Unfortunately it can't be safely removed due to the watch bezel and tight fit. And Garmin informed me that I voided the warranty by installing a 3rd party protector (it's considered "alteration or modification" of the product). I can't believe Garmin didn't anticipate this issue -- none of their documentation or marketing info for this product mentions screen protectors, which are even being bundled with the watch on other sites. Very disappointed that I paid an extra $100 for a feature that I can't use and that this could have been prevented if Garmin had communicated clearly. Giving it two stars because it's a decent watch otherwise.

i have the original Instinct for over a a year now it has shown no need for a "protective" screen cover to begin with.

This watch is built like a tank. I've had it for over two years of hiking, biking and climbing. Zero need for screen protectors.

That stinks. They should really say something about that. I get people are saying its a tough watch but I’ve had mine for over a year now and I got dings and scratches all over mine. I actually do some real adventuring as well so maybe all they do is run

the crystal will show wear easier because it is gorilla glass. my watch had a scratch after a week of casual wear. the same thing happened to my G-shock which has mineral glass. Sapphire crystal is a stronger more durable glass but, normally coast more.
