Garmin® introduces the D2 Delta, the latest generation in aviator watches

Three distinct sizes with internal music storage, Garmin Pay and optional wrist-based Pulse Oximeter

Garmin International, Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), today
announced the D2™ Delta PX, D2 Delta S and D2 Delta aviator watch
series, three new GPS-enabled smartwatches built in a variety of sizes
and personalities for pilots and aviation enthusiasts. New to the D2
aviator watch series, the D2 Delta PX incorporates built-in wrist-based
Pulse Oximeter1 for oxygen saturation awareness.
Additionally, all D2 Delta watches come with wireless connectivity with
select Garmin avionics, Garmin Pay™ contactless payment solution2,
storage for music playlists and more. These features offer pilots more
flexibility, greater connectivity and utility in a compact aviator watch
that’s as functional as it is stylish.

“The D2 Delta series merges modern style and functionality in a
sophisticated watch that is available in three distinct sizes tailored
to male and female pilots and aviation enthusiasts,” said Carl Wolf,
vice president of aviation marketing and sales. “Whether you’re climbing
into a single-pilot cockpit on the weekend, shooting instrument
approaches to minimums or flying professionally, the D2 Delta transforms
the aviator watch market with exclusive aviation functions and connected
features that appeal to every pilot – regardless of what flying they do.”

The premium D2 Delta PX features an elegant titanium gray
diamond-like carbon (DLC) finish on a large, 51mm bezel. Especially
useful in-flight and during high altitude activities, the D2 Delta PX
exclusively incorporates wrist-based Pulse Ox to help monitor oxygen
saturation levels.

The D2 Delta S features a stylish rose gold-tone bezel and is
lighter, sleeker and smaller than previous D2 models. At 42mm, the D2
Delta S is ideal for smaller wrists and comes with a beige leather strap
that makes it easy to transition from the cockpit to a night out. The
third model in the series, the D2 Delta, measures 47mm and
has a silver titanium bezel, as well as a premium brown leather

The D2 Delta series seamlessly integrates with select Garmin avionics to
achieve a harmonious, connected cockpit. The D2 Delta can connect
wirelessly to the Garmin Pilot™ app, as well as the GTN™ 650/750
touchscreen navigator series or the G1000® NXi integrated
flight deck via Flight Stream 510 to enable wireless flight plan
transfer to the watch. When connected, all models in the new D2 Delta
series can receive additional information from compatible avionics
including GPS position information, altitude, airspeed, groundspeed,
magnetic heading, outside air temperature and more.

Bluetooth®-capable music streaming enriches every activity as
all models of the D2 Delta incorporate integrated music storage of up to
500 songs within the watch, offering phone-free listening. Download
playlists from select music streaming services3 or transfer
customized playlists from a computer directly to the watch. Once the
playlist is loaded, pilots can pair a D2 Delta with a compatible
Bluetooth Garmin audio panel such as the GMA™ 245, GMA 345 or GMA 350c.
The D2 Delta can also be paired with a Bluetooth headset or headphones
(sold separately).

All sizes of the D2 Delta also include Garmin
, a contactless payment solution, allowing customers to leave
their cash and credit cards at home. Utilizing their Garmin Pay wallet,
customers have the same benefits and rewards of the physical cards, with
the convenience of having them available on their wrist.

The D2 Delta aviator watch series also features new smartwatch alerting
tailored to aviation operations. These new alerts include:

  • Configurable pressure altitude notifications, which consists of a
    series of vibrations when arriving at a selected altitude;
  • A fuel tank timer that vibrates at configurable intervals to help
    remind pilots to switch fuel tanks while in-flight;
  • A cross track error notification, which triggers a vibrating alert
    when pilots deviate from an active flight plan.

The D2 Delta aviator watch series come preloaded with a full multisport
toolset for running, golfing, cycling, skiing, workouts and more. It is
also water rated to 100 meters so it can withstand swimming and other
water activities. When paired with a compatible smartphone4,
users can send, receive and respond to text messages and see social
media updates, app alerts, calls, emails and more via the watch.
Garmin Elevate™ wrist-based heart rate technology also monitors heart
rate 24/7 alongside daily activity tracking. Because the D2 Delta is
versatile and supports a variety of activities, QuickFit®
bands allow users to easily switch between stylish leather and metal
accessory bands to sporty silicone in seconds and without tools.

All of the new D2 Delta models come preloaded with a worldwide aviation
database and incorporate signature aviation accents, dedicated direct-to
and nearest airport buttons, as well as the option to input a
customizable aircraft tail number on the face of the watch. A large,
sunlight-readable, high-resolution color display with an LED backlight
on the watch face, allows pilots to view data in most lighting
conditions in the cockpit. The D2 Delta PX offers up to 18 hours of
battery life in GPS and Pulse Ox mode and up to 20 days in smartwatch

The D2 Delta aviator watch is expected to be available in August for a
suggested retail price of $899 for the D2 Delta S; $949 for the D2
Delta; and $1,249 for the D2 Delta PX titanium edition. All three
versions of the D2 Delta also come with a silicone band and free
aviation database updates. Garmin will be showcasing the new D2 Delta
aviator watch series at the 2018 EAA AirVenture fly-in, in Oshkosh,
Wis., July 23-29, 2018. To learn more, visit
