Pilots can stay in shape while also having access to aviation information and assistance with the D2 Air GPS Smartwatch for Aviators from Garmin. Through the D2 Air's 1.2" AMOLED display, you can receive a wide variety of helpful pre-, in-, and post-flight data. Get airport weather, navigate directly to the nearest airport, see runway information, automatically log flights, and more.

Outside of the cockpit, the D2 Air fits into your daily life with a stylish stainless steel bezel and either a silicone or leather watch band. Both are included. Throughout your day, the D2 Air can monitor your health with an optical wrist-based heart monitor, and a Pulse Ox sensor to keep tabs on your blood oxygen levels. It can even monitor your stress levels and will send you reminders to relax, along with a prompt to perform a short breathing activity.

Monitoring your health is an essential aspect of fitness, and the D2 Air can help with that as well. More than 20 pre-loaded sports apps can track the metrics of your favorite exercise. Some of the apps include walking, running, cycling, pool swimming, and golf. Integrated GPS support works with outdoor activities to navigate you along routes and get you back home when out adventuring. The D2 Air even offers animated on-screen workouts that you can perform anywhere. Animated cardio, strength, yoga, and Pilates workouts come pre-loaded, but you can get more via the Garmin Connect app. Along with smartphone notifications, music playback, and contactless Garmin Pay, the D2 Air is an ideal all-day companion for any aviator.

Direct-To Navigation

Pilots can use the D2 Air to navigate straight to a specific location or waypoint in the worldwide aeronautical database. You can also activate the Nearest function to navigate to the closest airport.

Weather Reports

Get aviation weather from METARs, TAFs, and more to view wind, visibility, barometric pressure, and other data.

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, length, and airport frequencies as you approach. You can also view wind components when paired with a compatible smartphone.

Barometric Altimeter

The D2 Air will show you when you've reached your desired altitude. You can also get a vibration alert when you've reached an altitude that might require supplemental oxygen.

Flight Logging

The D2 Air can automatically track flights on takeoff and automatically transfer date, duration, total flight time, and router to your account.

Alerts & Timers

Set vibrating alerts to remind you when it is time to switch fuel tanks or other time-sensitive tasks.

UTC & Time Zones

While traveling, you can stay on schedule with multiple time zone displays and a UTC hand on the watch face.

Garmin Pilot Connectivity

Flight plans can be transferred from the Garmin Pilot app to the D2 Air to view the list of waypoints in your route.

Body Battery Energy Monitoring

The D2 Air can show you your body's energy levels throughout the day based on the activities you've performed, letting you know the best times for activity and rest.

Hydration Tracking

When you log your daily water intake, the D2 Air can track your day to day intake, so you can monitor how consistent you are in staying hydrated.

Sleep Monitoring

When worn throughout the night, the D2 Air can break down your light, deep, and REM sleep stages, along with Pulse Ox and respiration data.

Garmin Coach

This feature gives you a personalized running coach that will provide help with training for a 5K, 10K, or half-marathon.

Custom Workouts

In the Garmin Connect app, you can build your own workouts and download them to the D2 Air via a paired PC or smartphone.

Smart Notifications

When paired with a compatible smartphone, you can receive notifications for incoming emails and texts, as well as other alerts. If you pair the D2 Air with an Android smartphone, you can even respond to texts right from the D2 Air.

Music & Audio Playback

Built-in storage lets you add roughly 500 songs to the D2 Air for playback, as well as playlists from your Spotify, Deezer, or Amazon Music accounts. If you pair the D2 Air to a set of (optional) wireless headphones, you can enjoy phone-free listening anywhere.
