Get powerful capabilities in a slim, stylish AMOLED smartwatch with tools for preflight, in-flight and post-flight activities around town.


No matter what your schedule holds, 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 flight information right at hand.


With a durable Corning® Gorilla® Glass 3 lens, stainless-steel bezel, and premium black leather strap and additional silicone band, this smartwatch keeps up with you — from your workout, to the office, to your next flight.

Dedicated Flight System. At your wrist.

  • DIRECT-TO NAVIGATION: Navigate straight to a location or waypoint in the worldwide aeronautical database. Or choose the Nearest function to activate a path to a nearby airport.
  • PULSE OX SENSOR: Check with Pulse Ox to gain awareness of how well your body’s oxygen levels are adjusting to the thinner air at higher altitudes2.
  • WEATHER REPORTS: Access aviation weather, including METARs and TAFs, to see winds, visibility, barometric pressure and more.
  • HSI COURSE NEEDLE: Follow the instrument-like HSI course needle to your destination, so you can easily see if you’re left or right of your desired flight path.
  • AIRPORT INFORMATION: View runway orientation (including wind components1), lengths and airport frequencies as you approach your destination1.
  • BAROMETRIC ALTIMETER: See when you’ve reached your desired altitude — or get a vibration alert when you reach an altitude where supplemental oxygen may be required.
  • FLIGHT LOGGING: Automatically start tracking flights on takeoff, then automatically transfer date, duration, total flight time and route to your flyGarmin account.
  • ALERTS AND TIMERS: Manually set vibrating alerts to remind you when it’s time to switch fuel tanks or perform other time-critical tasks.
  • UTC AND TIME ZONES: Stay on schedule when you travel with a UTC hand on the watch face, plus multiple time zone displays.
  • GARMIN PILOT™ CONNECTIVITY: Transfer your flight plan from the Garmin Pilot app3 to D2 Air and view the list of waypoints included in your route.

Keep up with your life on the go.

  • ANIMATED, ON-SCREEN WORKOUTS: Easy-to-follow, animated cardio, strength, yoga and Pilates workouts come preloaded on the watch, and you can download more from the Garmin Connect™ app.
  • BUILT-IN SPORTS APPS: Track all the ways you move with more than 20 preloaded GPS and indoor sports apps — including walking, running, cycling, pool swimming, golf and more.
  • HEART RATE: The watch constantly samples your heart rate4 to help gauge how hard you work during activities — even underwater. Access more data in our app on your Apple® or Android™ device.
  • BODY BATTERY™ ENERGY MONITORING: See your body’s energy levels throughout the day so you can find the best times for activity and rest.
  • HYDRATION TRACKING: Staying hydrated is important for your well-being. Log your daily water intake to help you stay hydrated and see how consistent you are from day to day.
  • STRESS TRACKING: Find out if you’re having a calm, balanced or stressful day. Relax reminders will even prompt you to do a short breathing activity when you’re feeling stressed.
  • ADVANCED SLEEP MONITORING: Get a full picture of how you’re sleeping, with a breakdown of your light, deep and REM sleep stages4 as well as Pulse Ox2 and respiration data.
  • GARMIN COACH: Get a personal running coach on your wrist, for free, to help you train for your next 5K, 10K or half-marathon.
  • CUSTOM WORKOUTS: Build your own workouts in Garmin Connect, and download them to the watch when paired with your computer or compatible smartphone downloaded with the Garmin Connect app.

Get connected to speed through your day.
