Garmin’s Descent MK2S Is A High-Tech Hybrid Dive Computer & EDC Smartwatch

With smartwatches becoming more commonplace in our daily lives, no longer is it enough to track steps or count calories. On the contrary, though sport-specific options like Garmin’s Forerunners and Polar’s Vantages are undeniably essential to have during a workout, chances are good that they’ll also be spending some time on your wrist throughout the rest of the day.

With this in mind, Garmin took its capable Descent MK2 dive computer and gave it a top-to-bottom overhaul in order to optimize it for everyday wear. Dubbed the ‘Descent MK2s,’ it now comes in at 43mm wide, making it a far better option for smaller wrists than its massive 52mm sibling. What’s more, Garmin has outfitted it with support for multi-sport training as well as a smattering of helpful smart features. So, in addition to boasting some five different dive modes, the Descent MK2s also allows users to monitor their sleep and respiration, track activities like running, strength training, and surfing, and even make contactless payments or listen to music. Available in three different colors, it offers up to 7 days of battery life when used in smartwatch mode or up to 30 hours in dive mode. Buy it now for $1,000.
