I have an instinct that I wear hiking but that's about it. Not really a big fan of it. I don't have xp with the fenix's.

Not Me, I wear a cheap Timex Indglo Watch that I purchased at Walmart for $24.97 about five years ago. They last about fifteen years..I'm just curious who's wearing Garmin watches while shooting your Sig firearms. I've owned every Garmin Fenix Series watch since 2012 and recently upgraded to the Fenix 7X Sapphire Solar. I also recently purchased the Epix 2 Sapphire, which essentially has all of the functionality of a Fenix 7 Series watch, but with an AMOLED display. I'm still not sure what to think of the AMOLED display and I actually prefer the transflective MIP display of the Fenix Series watches. Overall, I prefer the 7x over the Epix 2, though I like variety and "changing things up" which is why I purchased both watches. The first photo below is the Epix 2 (black titanium) and second is the Fenix 7x (carbon gray titanium). View attachment 456157

+1 on the Instinct. I got it initially for an elk hunting trip because it paired with my Garmin inReach Mini. I have taken to wearing it constantly for the workout, sleep and “Body Battery” functions. I briefly looked into the Oura ring for some of those functions, but I don’t want a metal ring on my finger due to my concern (perhaps overblown) about ring accidents.I have a basic Garmin Instinct that I wear. I hate having something on my wrist, and the Instinct is a huge hunk of plastic.
I bought it because it pairs with my Garmin Pro 550+ using TT15mini dog collars. I can glance at my watch and see distance and direction to my dog. Last year it was down to $100 on Black Friday. I wouldn’t pay more for it.
On the plus side, the heart rate monitor does a good job of telling me when I’m sitting weird, cutting off circulation to my legs, and my heart is pumping extra hard. I like the sleep monitor also.
I just wish it wasn’t a giant hunk of plastic on my wrist.
