Garmin D2 Pilot Watch
Garmin International Inc, a unit of Garmin Ltd, a worldwide provider of navigation, communications and information services, recently launched a premium global positioning system (GPS) watch named D2. The watch has been specially designed to cater to the needs of aviators. It is expected to hit the markets in November.
D2’s monochrome screen features a moving map. It is equipped with vibrating alerts that can be used to set reminders for switching fuel tanks and other time-sensitive information needed during flights. The watch is fitted with altitude alert capability and displays local as well as Zulu time. This altitude alert function notifies the user when they reach or leave a predetermined altitude to help them ensure proper altitude during flight. To top it all, D2 is equipped with a dedicated NRST button that uses in-built GPS to guide users to the nearest airport in case of emergency. It also has a compass with a horizontal situation indicator (HSI).
