Introducing the D2 Pilot Watch. Garmin re-invents the aviation portable with the first highly capable and ergonomic GPS watch designed specifically for aviators.
Integration with Garmin Pilot & Garmin VIRB Elite
The D2 has been designed to integrate with other Garmin devices including Garmin Pilot™ - the Tablet Flight Planning, Navigation, Weather and Electronic Flight Bag App, as well as with Garmin's VIRB Elite, the true HD 1080p action camera.
Pilots may conveniently build flight plans and create waypoints within Garmin Pilot on their iPad 3 (or newer), select Android™ tablet, or other compatible devices. From there, the data may be uploaded to D2 using a Bluetooth (BLE) wireless connection.
Additionally, D2 will remotely control Garmin’s HD action camera, VIRB Elite. When connected to VIRB Elite, D2 has the ability to remotely start and stop video, view elapsed time for active video recording, as well as capture high quality still photos – even when video recording is active.
Style & functionality
The D2 pilot watch is designed to be as sophisticated in style as it is in function. It’s the first GPS pilot watch built to aid aviators in flight, combining stylish design with a high-sensitivity WAAS GPS receiver, altimeter with adjustable baro setting, and 3-axis compass that puts a wealth of information right on your wrist.
Bright sunlight & night flying readability
Its domed lens makes the screen easy to read even in direct sunlight while a brilliant orange backlight illuminates the display during night operations.
Worldwide database & Garmin 'quick touch' functionality
D2 will meet the needs of global aviators by offering a worldwide aviation database. Pilots can easily press and hold the dedicated buttons for quick access to perform 'direct-to' & 'nearest' functions, as well as create fly-over waypoints. Additionally, pilots can load flight plans and quickly create waypoints, similar to the capability found in Garmin's popular portable avionics.
Customisable data fields
Other features include the option to assign customised data fields to display GPS ground speed, GPS track, distance, estimated time enroute, bearing, glide ratio and much more - are all conveniently accessible within D2.
Similar to other Garmin avionics, D2 has an altitude alert feature, which notifies pilots when they reach a preselected altitude. D2 conveniently vibrates when departing from or upon arriving at any specified altitude, ensuring the selected altitude is maintained in-flight.
Pilots can navigate precisely and accurately with D2, which offers a built-in WAAS GPS, highly accurate altimeter with an adjustable barometric setting, compass with an HSI, and basic moving map page. With the option to set up vibrating alerts within D2, pilots are easily reminded of critical operations such as when to switch fuel tanks in-flight or any other time sensitive enroute operation.
