Garmin‘s list of smart watches covers all types of sports-loving users, but what you would never have thought is that the brand had a model specially designed for divers. Well pay attention because it has a lot of crumb, and it is not especially cheap.
Garmin Descent Mk2i, the watch for diving
The Descent Mk2i is an extremely special watch that only some users will know how to make the most of it, since we are with a unit built in a fiber-reinforced polymer case with a metal cover and a titanium bezel with carbon coating. Why so much paraphernalia on her body? Well, basically because the watch will be able to dive to a maximum depth of 100 meters, being able to withstand the pressure at that distance.
It has several measurement profiles that it will put to work depending on the type of activity you select, being able to follow up in manometer mode, apnea mode and capture in apnea, and being able to control oxygen pressure decompensation in values of up to 2.0 with customizable settings.
In addition to all that, it includes a dive computer system that will be in charge of keeping track of all your statistics on the water, allowing you to have records of the entry and exit points thanks to its advanced satellite connectivity and being able to store the last 200 dives made.
Control of the oxygen cylinder
But if there is something especially striking, it is that this watch is capable of being linked with an extra accessory, the Descent T1 transmitter, which is nothing more than an intelligent valve that will inform at all times of the pressure level of the oxygen cylinder . But there is still more, since the watch will be able to manage a total of 5 sensors, being able to know at all times the status of the cylinders of the entire group that accompanies us.
All the smart features you can expect
And of course, taking into account that we are facing a Garmin smartwatch, this Descent Mk2i has all the smart functions that we can find in other watches of the brand, enjoying the control of notifications received from our phone, music playback, routes with maps and even payments through the Garmin Pay platform.
How much does this underwater wrist computer cost?
As you can imagine, the price of this Descent Mk2i will not be especially low. Its construction quality and special functions make it a fairly niche watch with a highly accentuated professional profile, so its price is not within the reach of all pockets. And it is that the label that it carries reaches 1,499.99 euros , while the Descent T1 smart valve has a price of 399.99 euros, and yes, it is sold separately.
