Garmin D2 Mach 1: Premium smartwatch for pilots

Garmin has released a new premium Garmin D2 Mach 1 aviation smartwatch that would be loved by pilots and aviation lovers. The GizmoChina portal presented the specifications of the news.

An excellent display shows more information at the same time.

The novelty resembles the second-generation Garmin Epix model in appearance, with a sapphire crystal dial, titanium frame, and a modest number of exposed screws on the front. The strap is available in brown leather or titanium (price difference of $100).

The smartwatch offers information to the user via a 1.3-inch AMOLED touch screen that shows a classic hand dial. It is supplemented with seven information shelves that can be customized. Control is also provided in the form of side buttons.

The watch's key selling point is the amount of aeronautical and location data it can deliver.

During the activity, the display offers animated endurance data as well as other real-time indicators. The Garmin D2 Mach 1 has a unique collection of capabilities for pilots, including airport information, time zone, flight record, weather information, barometric altimeter, heart rate, blood oxygenation sensor, and Meteogram.

The watch will send notifications when messages from the METAR and TAF systems arrive. The notifications are directly related to the locations and points of interest included in the worldwide aviation database.

The watch may display dual-format location coordinates or TopoActive maps with geographic elements such as terrain contours, height, peaks, coasts, lakes, and more.

A variety of health monitoring features is also available, such as wrist heart rate measurement, stress measurement, sophisticated sleep and quality monitoring, and breath or hydration monitoring.

In Incognito mode, wireless is disabled and location information is not shared. There is also a button that allows you to wipe all data from the device.

In GPS mode with blood oxygenation measurement, the watch lasts 24 hours on a single battery. The Garmin D2 Mach watch has a usual battery life of 1 to 11 days.

The watch will cost $ 1,199.99 with a leather band and $ 1,299.99 with a titanium strap.
