Garmin Descent Mk2i, the watch for diving
He Descent Mk2i It is an extremely special watch that only some users will know how to make the most of it, since we have 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 submerge to a maximum depth of 100 meters, being able to withstand 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 pressure gauge mode, apnea mode and apnea capture, and being able to control the oxygen pressure decompensation in values 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 transmitter. Descent T1, which is only one smart valve that will inform at all times of the oxygen cylinder pressure level. 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 It 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 very accentuated professional profile, so its price is not within the reach of all pockets. And it is that the label that it carries reaches the 1,499.99 eurosWhile the Descent T1 smart valve is priced at € 399.99, and yes, it is sold separately.
