Most wrist­watches are no longer used only to dis­play the time. Garmin’s lat­est avi­a­tor watch, the D2 Char­lie, is one of the most ver­sa­tile and pilot-friendly we’ve seen yet. Al­time­ter, barom­e­ter and com­pass, as well as heart rate and well­ness data for mul­ti­ple sports, are built in, along with avi­a­tion-re­lated fea­tures such as nav­i­ga­tion, mov­ing map, weather and air­port info. There are many ways to mod­ify the D2 Char­lie, such as quickly swap­ping the wrist­band from sim­ple rub­ber to fancy ti­ta­nium, or cus­tomiz­ing the face with an N-num­ber or a photo through Garmin’s Face It app. Base price is $799 with leather and rub­ber straps. Re­plac­ing the leather with ti­ta­nium ups the price to $999. Avail­able for pur­chase at
