I am looking at Garmin Instinct Solar and Garmin Forerunner 245.
Which one is better for trekking, swimming activities?
Have searched on YouTube and hence finalized these 2, but would be helpful if someone has used any of these and can highlight which is better as per them.

Since these watches are very expensive and niche, Is it that you think you might need them or do you really need them? 

Your phone can do almost all of the things that these watches has to offer.

I have seen trekkers with these watches on their wrist, but still using the mobile apps for checking time, distance covered, altitude, compass, navigation etc. 

20,000 in the bank makes me more happier than 20,000 on the wrist.

Sadly development, good roads were not seen in action in a long time.

Really don’t know why we always have to bring in need vs want.
I need it and hence asked for suggestions.

Yes, Shauk badi chiz hoti hai (शौक बड़ी चीज होती है). we can’t measure it money every now and then.

It will make happy to those who makes 40k per month, not to those who makes 40l per month.

@pointshunter;

Garmin Instinct Solar is better.

Wait for a little time and upgrade to the new Instinct 2S Solar.

But, those who make 40l a month, don’t try to make a rational purchase on a 20k item. they would buy both or the most expensive one on the shelf.


People who can’t really afford to go wrong with a 20k spend, try to make the most out of it ( seeking reviews and opinions )
