The most ad­vanced Garmin pi­lot’s watch yet


Flying - - CONTENTS -

Who ever thought a pi­lot’s watch would do all this? Garmin’s lat­est D2 Delta PX pi­lot’s watch in­cor­po­rates a GPS mov­ing map, wrist-based pulse oxime­ter that tracks blood oxy­gen sat­u­ra­tion in flight, Nexrad color weather radar im­agery, air­port data, au­to­matic flight log­ging, con­nec­tiv­ity with com­pat­i­ble avion­ics and more.

The D2 Delta PX also in­cludes sev­eral fit­ness func­tions, such as heartrate mon­i­tor, ac­tiv­ity pro­files and fit­ness track­ing. It can store and play up to 500 songs and con­nect with an au­dio panel or head­set us­ing Blue­tooth tech­nol­ogy.

The Garmin Pay fea­ture built into the watch lets you link it to your credit card to make pur­chases so you can leave your cash and cards at home.

One of the fea­tures we like best is that the bat­tery lasts 20 days in smart­watch mode and 18 hours with the GPS and pulse-oxime­ter fea­tures turned on.

You can sync the watch with your Garmin Pi­lot app, and if you have an ADS-B In unit, such as the Garmin GDL 50, you can see traf­fic tar­gets and get other sit­u­a­tional alerts on the watch. How cool is that? $1,249;
