Hey, Buddy, Got the time?
...or the altitude, temperature, bearing, speed, ETE...? Garminís new D2 pilot watch, does.
While not all pilots are gadget geeks, drooling over the newest cool stuff, few among us don’t pine for the latest EFIS, navigator or portable. Garmin’s D2 introduction—possibly the ultimate pilot “Gadget Geek” watch yet—left us begging for a sample.
Essentially, the $450 D2 is a limited aviation portable GPS in a wrist watch. With a chronograph, pressure altimeter, compass and thermometer inside, you get a lot of pilot stuff in one package.
