The Evolution of Wrist-worn Portable Navigation

 

  • Thinner, lighter, more evolved GPS pilot watch design
  • Features METAR screen for the latest aviation weather information
  • Dedicated Direct-to and Nearest buttons enabled by a worldwide airport database
  • Scratch-resistant optical sapphire lens and crisp color display
  • Baro-adjustable altimeter, HSI, Zulu/UTC time reference, various timers and alerts plus wireless control for VIRB® cameras
  • First, Garmin invented wrist-worn portable navigation. Then, with the D2 Bravo pilot watch, we took the idea a step further — combining even more capability and features in an elegant design that is lighter, thinner, more connected and simpler to use in today’s busy cockpit environments.

 

Added Features for Better Flying

 

With streamlined mode selection, a crisp color display, enhanced graphics, added wireless connectivity options and an easy-to-access METAR screen for weather information at a glance, the D2 Bravo is a true GPS-based flight system in a wrist-worn configuration. Think of it as a pragmatic backup navigation tool that doubles as a stylish, highly accurate timepiece that any pilot or aviation enthusiast would be proud to wear anywhere, anytime.

Look Sharp, See Sharp

 

Every pilot needs a backup plan. And the D2 Bravo is a smart one. It boasts a high-sensitivity GPS receiver, altimeter with adjustable baro setting and a 3-axis compass with HSI course indication. There’s a premium sapphire lens that offers superior hardness and scratch resistance. Plus, the bright, extra-crisp, full-color Garmin Chroma Display™ features LED backlighting for great visibility in all lighting conditions. With its distinctive leather strap (or included black rubber watchband), stainless steel bezel and reinforced composite housing, the D2 Bravo’s stylish good looks promise extra-rugged durability as well.

 

Fly Direct-to or Nearest With Ease

 

Using its built-in worldwide airport database, the D2 Bravo lets you access either of our signature Direct-to and Nearest routing functions by simply pressing dedicated buttons. So, you can fly straight to the location or waypoint of your choice — or find the nearest airport if you need to land quickly. You can view your route on a basic moving map display. Or, follow the HSI course needle to your destination. By setting your own waypoints, you can also navigate easily to any location not included in the database. In fact, you can even create Mark on Target waypoints to easily reference - and return to - locations you’ve flown over.

 

Keep an Eye on the Weather with METARs Reports

 

For at-a-glance updates on the weather for your departure airport or your destination — the D2 Bravo works wirelessly with your compatible smartphone¹ to bring you a screenful of current meteorological (METARs) information: winds, visibility, precipitation, cloud cover and heights, temperature, dew point, barometric pressure, etc.— all the vital measurements you need for smart pre-flight decision making.

 

Customizable Displays and Timers

 

To aid in situational awareness, you can assign customizable data fields to display GPS groundspeed, GPS track, distance from waypoints/airports, estimated time enroute, bearing, glide ratio and other useful flight parameters. There’s also a handy altitude alerting feature that can be set to notify you when reaching or leaving a preselected altitude. The watch can show you local time and Zulu/UTC time. And you can select the stopwatch function for timing approaches or flight legs. The baro-based O2 Altitude alert feature will automatically notify you when you’ve reached an altitude where supplemental oxygen is required. Plus, various other timer functions with vibrating alerts can be set to remind you when it’s time to switch fuel tanks or perform other time-critical tasks.

 

Control your VIRB Action Camera with Your Watch

 

The VIRB family of HD action cameras (sold separately) lets you capture the beauty and precision of flight in stunning detail. And, with its wireless connectivity, your D2 Bravo watch can also be used with your VIRB to remotely start/stop video, view elapsed time for recording or even capture high-quality still photos — while shooting live video. You can even control multiple VIRB cameras at the same time, to capture the action from multiple angles.
