Garmin Instinct 2 Solar ONE PIECE
Good news for fans of the hit Japanese anime in Asia. They can now purchase a limited edition Garmin Instinct 2 Solar ONE PIECE. This is the perfect choice as this is a rugged, outdoorsy watch meant for those that like the outdoors, hiking, exploring – the adventurer crowd.
The limited edition watch takes on all the characteristics of the regular variant which launched earlier in 2022. This includes MIL-STD-810 standards build, 100 meter water resistance, shock resistance, fiber-reinforced polymer case, scratch-resistant Corning Gorilla glass, GNSS multi-satellite positioning, all-day health monitoring and notification support. Plus you also get a solar charging display which converts sunlight into power to help extend the time between charges.
The novelty of the limited edition comes via the design. There are three Garmin Instinct 2 Solar ONE PIECE variants to choose from. They include the Zorro Instinct Solar 2, Luffy Instinct Solar 2 and Chopper Instinct Solar 2. Each comes with a character-inspired iconic elements of the anime which include specific colour-ways, a unique watch-face, 22mm strap design and packaging.
An example of some of these design enhancements is a buckle embellished with skull and crossbone details on the Luffy Instinct 2. It is also worth a mention that Chopper is the only one of the three that comes in a smaller 40 mm diameter case and 20mm strap – along the lines of the 2s. Taking its cue from the falling sakura, that one also comes in a feminine pink case, coupled with a blue hat button.
No word yet on price but the Instinct 2 Solar sells upwards of $470 in the US – so that should offer a good hint as far as what to expect. The limited edition will be pricer than that. The watch has been listed on Garmin Singapore as “Common Soon”.
