Ordinary watches have a movement. Revolutionary watches start a movement. Welcome to the revolution in global flight navigation, sparked by the D2 Charlie aviator watch.
With a rich array of color mapping, weather, waypoint reference and flight logging features, D2 Charlie sets the standard for on-wrist situational reference and backup navigation in your cockpit. You can pan and zoom the watch’s moving map to quickly expand your view of airports, waypoints, terrain, obstacles or weather activity along your route of flight. Wherever you travel, smart notifications¹ (emails, text messages, alerts and more) can display on the watch to help you stay in the know while on the go. And between flights, you can use the latest sport watch features — including Elevate™ wrist-based heart rate monitoring¹, daily activity tracking¹, training metrics and more — to keep up with your personal fitness goals.
Detail-rich Moving Map
In aviation mode, the D2 Charlie watch’s detailed moving map display and extensive databases help you visualize your flight path in relation to nearby navaids, airports, intersections and VFR reference features such as roads, cities, bodies of water and more. Enhanced Direct-to capabilities allow you to add multiple waypoints and fly a Direct-to course to any waypoint in your flight plan. And while in flight, you can view your route on the GPS-referenced dynamic map display — or follow the HSI course needle to your destination. By setting your own waypoints, you can also navigate easily to any location not included in the database. In fact, you can even create Mark on Target waypoints to easily reference — and return to — locations over which you’ve flown. There’s also a dedicated Nearest button on the watch that will locate the closest airport if you need to land quickly for a mechanical issue, weather precaution or passenger emergency.
Weather with Radar Overlay
For at-a-glance updates on the weather for your departure airport, your destination airport or anywhere in between, D2 Charlie works wirelessly with your compatible smartphone to keep you informed. You can access location-based meteorological reports (METARs) and terminal forecast (TAF) information — including winds, visibility, precipitation, cloud cover, temperature, dew point, barometric pressure and more. A quick “hot key” shortcut — pressing Direct-to and Down keys — brings up high-resolution radar graphics (NEXRAD)³, overlaid on the moving map. So, you can easily access the data you need for weather trend awareness and smart preflight decision making.
With its customizable data fields, D2 Charlie makes it easy to access the data that’s most important to you — such as current GPS groundspeed, GPS track, distance from waypoints/airports, estimated time en route, bearing, glide ratio and other key flight parameters. A handy altitude alerting feature can be set to notify you when reaching or leaving a preselected altitude. And you can also select a stopwatch function for timing approaches or flight legs. A baro-based O2 Altitude alert feature vibrates to remind you when supplemental oxygen is required at operating altitudes above 12,500’. Plus, various other timer functions with vibrating alerts can be set to let you know when it’s time to switch fuel tanks or perform other time-critical tasks.
