Garmin D2 Watch Garmin D2 Pilot Watch
This watch is really 3 functions: a pilot watch; a GPS receiver, and an outdoor/hiking watch. As a pilot watch, it's really good with a plethora of stats, plenty of room for flight plans, and much more. As a general GPS receiver, it's not so special. It has Bluetooth connectivity, but it's only used for transferring flight plans from the Garmin iPad app to the watch. It does not actively communicate during flight.

It shows lat/lon, and a very basic moving map, but that's about it for general GPS functions. Stew also noticed that the GPS derived altitude was much different than panel mounted GPS or barometric altimeters.

The hiking mode has a ton of great features for runners, geocachers, etc. It also has some features that allow you to control the Garmin action cam from the D2 watch.
