News News The Garmin D2 Air Aviator Smartwatch The Garmin D2 Air Aviator Smartwatch August 20th, 2021 Posted in News The D2 Air, Featuring a slim and stylish design with an AMOLED touchscreen, this watch couples a lightweight feel with powerful features, such as a built-in wrist-based Pulse Oximeter for oxygen saturation awareness, direct-to navigation, airport information and much more. The D2 Air also incorporates day-to-day features to use the watch on the go, including smart notifications, Garmin PayTM contactless payment solution, storage for music playlists and more. This watch is designed with pilots and aviation enthusiasts in mind and is the perfect combination of functionality and affordability. The D2 Air features a 1.2” diameter polished stainless-steel bezel, a durable Corning Gorilla Glass 3 lens, and a vivid AMOLED Touchscreen colour display. With the smallest, yet brightest, screen in the D2 series, this watch is Garmin’s lightest aviation watch to date. The D2 Air comes with a black leather band and black silicone band, with industry-standard quick-release interchangeable bands available for purchase. There When You Need It – Pre, During, and Post Flight Features The beautiful AMOLED display brings the watch to life, even in a bright cockpit. The aviation-themed watch face shows your passion for the sky, and the always-on mode keeps your information right at hand. Access aviation weather, including METARs and TAFs, to see winds, visibility, barometric pressure and more. View airport information, navigate Direct-to a location or waypoint in the worldwide aeronautical database or activate a path to a nearby airport using the Nearest function. Use the instrument-like HSI course needle to stay centred on your desired flight path. The D2 Air allows you to view the runway orientation, wind components (When paired to a smartphone), lengths, and airport frequencies, as you approach your destination. The built-in barometric altimeter can also notify when a specific altitude is reached, and a vibration alert can be set to alert when supplemental oxygen may be required. In addition to alerts, the D2 Air incorporates a wrist-based Pulse Ox sensor to help monitor oxygen saturation levels, which is especially useful in-flight and during high altitude activities. The D2 Air can also connect wirelessly to the Garmin Pilot app and enables wireless flight plan transfer from Garmin Pilot to the D2 Air and allows you to view the waypoints included in the route. With wireless connectivity to a smartphone, the D2 Air series also makes quick work of flight logging and other record-keeping tasks. During takeoff, the watch will detect the aircraft’s change in altitude and automatically initiate the logbook function – recording date, duration, total flight time, and route and can automatically log this information via your smartphone to flyGarmin.com and the Garmin Pilot app. Other features that pilots have come to expect from the D2 series aviator watches included with the D2 Air are vibrating alerts (that you can configure to activate when it’s time to switch fuel tanks or perform other time-critical tasks), UTC hands on the watch, multiple time zone displays and more.
