The watches will be available for purchase online on e-commerce platform Amazon India, Tata CLiQ, Tata Luxury, Synergizer, Flipkart and Nykaa, and offline at Garmin stores and Helios watch stores.

Fitted with integrated LED flashlights, the watches come encased in a fiber-reinforced polymer case. The built-in LED flashlight in the Instinct 2X Solar illuminated in red and white, with white adjustable for illumination intensity.
