Which Garmin Aviation Watch Is Right for Me?

Whether you’re a pilot or an aviation enthusiast in the market for a smartwatch, you’ve come to the right place. Garmin is at the forefront of engineering aviation smartwatches and has several options to fit your needs.

Pilots can take to the skies confidently with aviation-specific features while also taking advantage of fitness features Garmin smartwatch users have come to love over the years.

All watches are designed for round-the-clock wear and can connect with the Garmin Pilot™ smartphone app to seamlessly transfer flight plans and view the list of waypoints included in a route right from your wrist.

So which Garmin aviation watch is right for you? Let’s dive into that.

1. D2™ Mach 1 Pro

Be prepared for anything — day or night — with a built-in flashlight and advanced flying and fitness tools. The most advanced Garmin aviation smartwatch, this premium and luxury smartwatch comes with a scratch-resistant, diamond-like carbon (DLC) titanium bezel and bracelet and so much more. From a vibrant AMOLED display to up to 25 days of battery life1 and advanced tools for flying and fitness, the D2 Mach 1 Pro has it all.

If you’re obsessed with a sharp smartwatch with premium materials such as sapphire and titanium, as well as having the most features possible, this smartwatch packs a punch. Think Direct-to navigation, in-flight maps, real-time weather reports and airport information, flight logging, jet lag adviser and loads more. On the ground and in the air, track your health and fitness, sleep, stress, heart rate2, workouts and more.

Furthermore, if you fly an aircraft that uses PlaneSync, the D2 Mach 1 Pro can be used to access the aircraft dashboard to quickly reference fuel level, electrical status, database and location information.

2. D2™ Mach 1

Let’s not forget about the well-regarded D2 Mach 1, a classic-style watch that provides many of the same flying tools and features as its Pro counterpart, including the worldwide aeronautical database, moving map, Next Generation Weather Radar (NEXRAD) and more.

Plenty of perks to get you pointed — and flying — in the right direction.

The D2 Mach 1 is offered with the option of either a vented titanium bracelet or an oxford brown leather band. Both choices come with an additional black silicone watch band.

3. D2™ Air X10

How about the D2 Air X10? This stylish smartwatch allows pilots to take calls from and use their compatible smartphone’s voice assistant to send texts and more3. It comes with numerous preflight, in-flight and postflight tools such as airport weather updates, Direct-to navigation capabilities and flight logging — just to name a few.

Like the others, the D2 Air X10 has all of the health and wellness features as well as the indoor and GPS sports apps you need to lead a healthy lifestyle.

But the sleek look and feel is what the D2 Air X10 is known for. With durable Corning® Gorilla® Glass 3 and a stainless steel bezel, plus two color choices, this smartwatch will match your look for each arrival.

4. MARQ® Aviator (Gen 2)

As a member of the second-generation MARQ collection, the MARQ Aviator is an absolute stunner. Built with Grade-5 titanium and swept-wing links and locking clasp for an ultradurable design, the luxury modern tool aviation watch has a domed sapphire lens, providing a crystal-clear view of the stunning AMOLED display.

But the MARQ Aviator is much more than an eye-catching watch. It can keep track of time around the world with 24-hour GMT bezel markings, help you acclimate to new time zones and get you where you need to go with many aviation-focused features.

So whether you fly for work or leisure — or both, for that matter — Garmin is prepared to take to the skies with you.
