Garmin D2 Pilot Watch: Aviation + GPS on Your Wrist
October 14th, 2013
While commercial pilots might not use this kind of watch to replace the computers they work with in Jumbo Jets, frequent travelers and private pilots might enjoy the goodies features on this latest Garmin watch.
The Garmin D2 Pilot Watch has everything you’d expect from an aviator watch, with the added bonus of Garmin GPS tech. It has the ability to load a flight plan and view it in real time on the watch face. Its dedicated NRST button can also guide you to the nearest airport. There’s also a compass, horizontal situation indicator, ground speed indicator, and altimeter. The watch can also be used to set timers and vibrating alerts for in-flight tasks. It can even be used to wirelessly control Garmin’s VIRB action cameras.
All these features don’t come cheap, as the watch will cost you $449(USD), but if you’re into aviation, it’s an impressive amount of tech packed into a wrist watch.
