The Garmin D2 family of premium GPS aviator watches was the first to put true global flight navigation capability on the wrists of forward-looking pilots and flying enthusiasts. Now, with Garmin’s D2 Delta series, they have brought this technology to whole new levels of capability and connectivity. With advanced aviation and sport watch functions, these sleek new designs – available in 3 sizes – accent your style while helping to navigate your day. These watches also include handy features such as storage for up to 500 songs and the Garmin Pay contactless payment solutions.
Featuring a mid-size (47 mm) form factor with a silver titanium bezel and scratch-resistant domed sapphire crystal lens, the D2 Delta model is built for extra rugged durability in demanding environments. With a rich array of colour mapping, weather, waypoint reference and flight logging features, you can count on reliable on-wrist situational reference and back-up navigation in your cockpit. Then, between flights you can use the latest sport watch features – including Elevate wrist based heart-rate monitoring, daily activity tracking, training metrics and more – to keep up with your personal fitness goals. For these intense activities, each D2 Delta version comes with a soft, flexible black silicone sports band, offering easy QuickFit band replacement without tools. Whenever you travel, smart notifications (emails, text messages, alerts and more) can display on the watch to help you stay in the know while on the go.
Using its built-in worldwide airport database, the D2 Aviator watch lets you access Garmin’s Direct-to and Nearest routing functions by simply pressing either of 2 dedicated buttons. So, you can fly straight to the location or waypoint of your choice – or find the nearest airport if you need to land quickly. You can also view your flight path in relation to nearby navaids, airports, intersections and other surface features on the watch’s full-colour moving map – or follow the instrument-like HSI course needle to your destination. Its easy to pan and zoom the moving map to quickly expand your view of airports, waypoints, weather activity and VFR reference features such as roads, cities, bodies of water and more. By setting your own waypoints you can navigate to any location not included in the database. You can even create Mark on Target waypoints for easy reference – and return to – locations over which you have flown.
Enhanced Cockpit Connectivity: For more work-saving convenience, you can pair the Garmin Flight Stream 510 wireless gateway (sold separately) to your cockpit avionics system, allowing you to use the Connext technology to stream information between your compatible Garmin GPS navigator and your D2 Delta watch. The synced GPS position data enables even more precise mapping detail on your watch. Plus, using the data field display, you can stream other information – such as altitude, airspeed, outside air temperature and more – onto your D2 Delta watch in real time.
Sync up your Flight Plan: In addition to the data streaming features, there is another advantage to having the optional Flight Stream 510 in your aircraft. When connected to the D2 Delta series watch, Flight Stream 510 will automatically transfer flight plan changes from your compatible avionics to the D2 Delta watch. This wireless flight plan transfer also works with the Garmin Pilot app, so your watch will always be in sync with your compatible Garmin products. You can also connect the D2 Delta via a network equipped with Wi-Fi technology to wirelessly update the preloaded databases that come with your watch. A compatible ADS-B “IN” device such as the portable Garmin GDL 50receiver, will further enable the Garmin Pilot app to relay notifications of potential traffic targets, as well as other situational alerts, to your D2 Delta watch.
Weather with Radar Overlay: For at-a-glance updates on the weather, the D2 Delta works wirelessly with your compatible smartphone to keep you informed. You can access location-based meteorological reports (METARs) and terminal forecast (TAFs) information – including winds, visibility, precipitation cloud cover, temperature, dew point, barometric pressure and more. A quick “hot key” shortcut – pressing Direct to and Down keys – brings up high-resolution radar graphics (NEXRAD), overlaid on the moving map. You can easily access the data you need for weather trend awareness and smart pre-flight decision-making.
Flight Logging is Automatic: With wireless connectivity to your smartphone, the D2 Delta watch can make quick work of flight logging and other record keeping tasks. During take-off , the watch will detect your aircraft’s change in altitude and automatically initiate the logbook function – recording date, duration, total flight time and route. After your flight is complete, it will sync this logbook data via your smartphone to flyGarmin.com and the Garmin Pilot app for safekeeping.
Customizable Features: Customizable data fields on your D2 Delta watch let you easily access the data that’s most important to you – such as current GPS groundspeed , GPS track, distance from waypoints/airports, estimated time en route, bearing, glide ratio and other key flight parameters. a handy altitude alerting feature can be set to notify you when reaching or leaving a preset altitude. You can also select a stopwatch function for timing approaches or flight legs. There are also vibration alerts to let you know when you’ve drifted off course or reached your desired alttitude. A baro-based configurable O2 Altitude alert feature will vibrate to remind you when supplemental oxygen is required. There are also various other time functions with vibrating alerts that activate when its time to switch fuel tanks or perform other time-critical tasks.
Pay with a Wave of your Hand: To help keep pace with your active lifestyle, all D2 Delta watches feature the Garmin Pay contactless payment solution. Use it to pay for purchases so you can breeze through checkout lines while leaving your cash and cards at home! It works just about anywhere there is a scanner for contactless payments.
Other features include advanced many multi-sport functions, music storage for up to 500 songs, custom apps, watch faces and a wide selection of QuickFitwatchbands.
