Garmin® introduces D2™ Bravo Titanium aviator watch

A smart and sophisticated watch with a premium titanium band, wrist heart rate and more

Garmin International Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), today
announced D2 Bravo Titanium, a premium aviation GPS smartwatch that
combines contemporary design and sophisticated connectivity to bring
pilots and aviation enthusiasts an elite aviator watch. Utilizing
premium materials like a hybrid titanium band and gunmetal bezel,
sapphire lens and high-resolution color display, D2 Bravo Titanium
combines the GPS wearable technology Garmin is known for with a sleek
form factor suitable for activities both inside and outside of the
cockpit. It also boasts new multisport activity profiles like golf and
advanced fitness training and incorporates Garmin Elevate™ wrist-based
heart rate technology1 allowing customers to measure heart
rate 24/7. Automated flight logging, the display of Terminal Aerodrome
Forecasts (TAFs) and an aviation-tailored customizable watch face that
allows customers to input the tail number of their aircraft add to D2
Bravo Titanium feature set.

“Garmin has long been a leader in GPS-enabled wearables and continues to
transform the aviator watch market by introducing exclusive features
that are tailored to aviation enthusiasts and pilots alike,” said Carl
Wolf, Garmin vice president of aviation sales and marketing. “With D2
Bravo Titanium, we’re excited to merge functionality and sophistication
to bring customers a timepiece made of superior materials to those who
live an active lifestyle outside of the cockpit. Regardless of whether
you’re on the golf course, in the boardroom or flying at 10,000 feet, D2
Bravo Titanium contains a comprehensive feature set that can be fully
customized so it’s easy to transition to everyday activities.”

Stylish, rugged, uncompromising design

D2 Bravo Titanium features a bold design made of premium materials,
including a diamond-like carbon (DLC) coated hybrid titanium band and
scratch-resistant sapphire lens for enhanced durability. A
sunlight-readable color display with an LED backlight allows customers
to view data in most lighting environments in the cockpit. Now featuring
Garmin Elevate heart rate, users can easily monitor heart rate and
activity levels at their wrist 24/7. Water rated to 100 meters, it can
withstand swimming and other water activities. D2 Bravo Titanium offers
up to 16 hours of battery life in GPS mode, up to 2 weeks in smartwatch
mode and up to 3 weeks in watch mode.

Designed by pilots, for pilots

A custom aviation-tailored feature set differentiates D2 Bravo Titanium
from other aviator watches on the market. For example, D2 Bravo Titanium
incorporates a worldwide airport database and support for up to 18
languages to meet the needs of pilots around the globe. When paired with
a compatible smartphone, pilots can view aviation routine weather
reports (METARs) and TAFs in plain language, which are color-coded to
indicate visual or instrument meteorological conditions (IMC). D2 Bravo
Titanium features the option to create flight plans and includes both an
altimeter with an adjustable barometric setting and a compass with an
HSI and moving map. Dedicated direct-to and nearest buttons along the
side of the bezel allow for immediate navigation commands. Similar to
Garmin portables, customizable data fields include Estimated Time
Enroute (ETE), Estimated Time of Arrival (ETA) and more, so customers
can easily monitor the progress of their flight at a glance.

D2 Bravo Titanium provides a preset oxygen reminder based on barometric
altitude when operating at or above 12,500 feet, serving as a valuable
back-up cabin pressure monitor in pressurized aircraft. Pilot-selectable
altitude alerting also notifies pilots when they reach or leave a
preselected altitude. Additionally, D2 Bravo Titanium provides the
option to set up supplementary vibrating alerts to serve as a reminder
to perform time-sensitive operations such as switching fuel tanks

D2 Bravo Titanium also enriches other flight experiences by integrating
with select Garmin products, including VIRB® XE, which allows
customers to start and stop video, view elapsed time for active video
recording and capture high quality stills.

Automated logbook sync

Automated flight logging offers pilots a convenient way to maintain a
consistent log of their flights with D2 Bravo Titanium, which also
automatically syncs and stores logbook data within, as
well as the Garmin Pilot™ application on a mobile device. During
takeoff, it detects a change in altitude, which initiates the logbook
function to begin recording. Pertinent information such as date, total
flight time and route are automatically recorded and logged within the
watch and synced across and the Garmin Pilot app with an
Internet connection.

Suitable for the cockpit, golf course and evening out

The aesthetic appeal of D2 Bravo Titanium offers a functional, yet
stylish, smartwatch for use across multiple activities and events. In
addition to serving as a suitable back-up navigator in the cockpit,
D2 Bravo Titanium contains multisport functions for golfing, cycling,
rowing, swimming, hiking, skiing, running and more. With the Garmin
Connect™ Mobile app, customers can download more than 40,000 golf
courses worldwide for precise course data and use their watch as a
digital scorecard. For everyday wear, D2 Bravo Titanium incorporates
activity tracking functions, which count steps and provide a customized
step goal each morning, while also counting calories and distance
throughout the day1. It also features a vibration move alert
after one hour of inactivity and sleep mode to monitor quality of rest
at night.

New D2 Bravo enhancements

All new and current D2 Bravo owners have access to a free software
upgrade that enables the display of TAFs, incorporates automated flight
logging and includes the addition of new activities such as golf. An
aviation-tailored customizable watch face and option to display an
aircraft tail number is also available with this new software update.
For existing owners, the D2 Bravo software update that enables these new
features is available immediately.

Additionally, support for flight plan transfer from the Garmin Pilot app
to D2 Bravo Titanium and D2 Bravo is expected in June, which will be
enabled by a free software update.

The D2 Bravo series is compatible with the Connect IQ™ store for a
multitude of customization options. Through Connect IQ in the Garmin
Connect Mobile app, customers can download any of the free apps,
widgets, watch faces or data fields to customize their D2 Bravo Titanium
or D2 Bravo to suit style and personal preferences.

D2 Bravo Titanium is available immediately for a suggested retail price
of $899.00.
