Garmin Introduces D2 Air X10 Aviator Smartwatch Navigate The Skies and Your Day

Garmin is pleased to announce the latest addition to the D2pilot watch line, the D2 Air X10 - a GPS smartwatch with powerful aviation functionality and new features that lets pilots take calls and use their compatible smartphone’s voice assistant to send texts, ask questions and so much more. These connected capabilities join the robust set of dedicated aviation tools in Garmin’s D2 Air series, including: weather, direct-to navigation capabilities, airport information, automatic flight logging, Pulse Ox1 and more—all delivered directly to the watch. With a full suite of health, wellness and fitness features and a battery life of up to 7 days, the D2 Air X10 is the perfect smartwatch for life in and out of the cockpit.


What’s new for the D2 Air X10

  • Phone calls from the watch3: Make and take phone calls with the press of a button; no more missing calls while digging through your pockets or fumbling through your flight bag.
  • Voice assistant control3: Hands full? No problem. Compatible with Siri, Google Assistant or Bixby, pilots can use their smartphone’s voice assistant to send texts, ask questions, control compatible smart home devices and more.

A dedicated flight system on your wrist

The D2 Air X10 includes preflight, in-flight and postflight features and tools to assist pilots in navigation and enhance situational awareness. Direct-to navigation lets pilots navigate straight to an airport or waypoint in the preloaded worldwide database directly from the watch or choose the Nearest function to activate a direct course to a nearby airport. The instrument-like horizontal situation indicator (HSI) course needle assists pilot in determining if the aircraft is left or right of the desired flight path, and the barometric altimeter can alert them when they’ve reached their desired altitude. Aviation alerts like time, distance, altitude and a fuel timer are also available on the D2 Air X10 during flight.

Flight logging is a breeze with the D2 Air X10, which automatically starts tracking flights on takeoff, then automatically transfers the date, duration, total flight time and route to the user’s logbook2. Pilots can also seamlessly transfer flight plans from the Garmin Pilot app to the D2 Air X10 and view the list of waypoints included in their route when the D2 Air X10 is paired to the app on a compatible smartphone.

Know what’s ahead with airport information like runway orientation and wind components2, runway lengths, airport frequencies, and traffic pattern altitude—all preloaded and easily accessible from the watch. The D2 Air X10 also offers aviation weather reports, including METARs and TAFs that allow pilots to see winds, visibility and barometric pressure and more3 before takeoff. And stay on schedule with a UTC hand on the watch face, which can also display and help pilots manage multiple time zones, including Zulu time.

All-day health monitoring & customized fitness

With the broadest range of 24/7 health monitoring features available from Garmin, the D2 Air X10 offers: wrist-based heart rate (with user-configurable alerts for high or low readings4), advanced sleep monitoring with sleep score, breathwork activities, fitness age, respiration, Pulse Ox1, all-day stress tracking, hydration, and women’s health tracking. Body Battery energy monitoring shows users how “charged” their body is as well as the draining effects of stress and exercise. During a flying activity, pilots can quickly access the health stats menu to track their heart rate, Pulse Ox1, respiration, Body Battery and more. Plus, a new Health Snapshot™7 feature logs a two- minute window of key health stats and generates a report users can share with a health care provider—a great tool for capturing physiological data anytime you’re feeling off your baseline.

The D2 Air X10 features 25+ built-in indoor and GPS sports apps with favorites that include walking, running, cycling, pool swimming, golf, hiking, advanced strength training and more. Keep fitness feeling fresh with preloaded workouts on the watch, preset workouts available for download from the Garmin Connect app, or create customizable workouts by choosing from over 1,400 exercises.

Smart features for life on the go

The D2 Air X10 keeps the essentials on the wrist with built-in music (download up to 650 songs including playlists from Spotify®, Amazon Music, and Deezer5), Garmin Paycontactless payments6, and smart notifications for calls, texts, calendar reminders, social media updates, breaking news stories and more. Like all Garmin smartwatches, the D2 Air X10 can be used with compatible Android or Apple® smartphones.
