Buying a new dive watch is an investment in the time — literally — and an investment in the adventures ahead. So, it’s important that when you step up to the plate to pick up your next watch, you best not miss. Right? Right. The Garmin Descent MK1 Dive Watch marks somewhat unfamiliar territory for the brand, but if you trust them to get you from point A to point B, surely, they can handle constructing a heck of a dive watch. That’s the thinking at least — and the MK1 Dive Watch definitely delivers.
You get a heck of a lot of bang for your buck, that much is true. We’re talking a price tag just shy of a grand, and yet the functionality of a full-feature dive computer and surface GPS packed into one durable wristwatch. Complete with a gyroscope, a barometric altimeter and a 3-axis compass, this beefy watch is truly a jack of all trades, and more than suitable for your next expedition on the high seas. You can even store and review data from up to 10,000 dives — when you invest in a watch like the Descent MK1, you’re investing in adventure (remember?). – $1,000+
