Garmin recently released the new D2 Charlie aviator watch, a GPS smartwatch with high-resolution mapping, weather radar overlay and advanced capabilities.
Garmin has recently released a new version of their D2 Bravo to a new D2 Charlie aviator watch. The new watch not only has high-resolution mapping, weather radar overlays, and airport information, but also has wrist heart rate technology and activity tracking.
Garmin describes the aviation capabilities of the D2 Charlie as “an advanced, standalone navigator, the D2 Charlie aviator watch incorporates exclusive navigation functions and capabilities that aid in navigating. New airport information pages display communication frequencies, runway information (including dimensions and surface type), weather data and more for a specified airport. The flight log page allows pilots to conveniently reference recent flights at their wrist, displaying date, flight duration, total distance and more of a particular flight. Additionally, improved flight planning capabilities include the option to add multiple waypoints within a single flight plan and the ability to navigate direct to any waypoint in a flight plan.”
Take a look at the video below released to Garmin’s YouTube page.
Garmin says that the watch will sell for a price of $799 for one with a leather band and $999 for the titanium edition. Both versions of the D2 Charlie also come with a sporty silicone band. The D2 Charlie aviator watch also comes with free lifetime aviation database updates.
