Garmin’s latest watch has pilots in mind. The D2 Mach 1 GPS aviator smartwatch combines advanced tools for flying with health and fitness features that Garmin has perfected on its range of smartwatches, with an AMOLED touchscreen display. Among the preflight, in-flight and postflight features and tools are weather reports, automatic alerts for changing conditions, a moving map and horizontal situation indicator (HSI), so you can easily see if the aircraft is left or right of the desired flight path. Battery life is up to 11 days, so you can rely on the watch when you most need it.

It also has the usual health features, such as wrist-based heart rate tracking, pulse oxygen and stress monitoring.
