Luffy edition comes with an overall black theme with gold and red accents, while the Roronoa Zoro version comes with an olive body with turquoise accents and camouflage-themed straps. Meanwhile, the Tony Tony Chopper edition of the Garmin Instinct 2S Solar sports a bright pink, white, and teal colored body, along with light pink straps decorated with sakura patterns.
