Overview

Our take on the Garmin Descent Mk1

Garmin's Descent Mk1 is the go-to tool that divers need — whether you're an experienced aquanaut or just beginning to explore the world underwater. Descent Mk1 is an all-in-one computer that will handle all of your diving requirements, while the inclusion of surface GPS navigation makes it easy to mark and keep track of dive entry and exit points. This Garmin automatically swings into action when you're in the water, displaying your depth, dive time, ascent/descent rates, and water temperature. Descent Mk1 automatically calculates decompression times, so you'll return safely from expeditions to depths up to 100 meters.

The data you need for a safe dive

The computer supports up to 6 different gas mixes, so it's perfectly suited for everything from recreational dives to technical diving. You can personalize your conservation settings so that you'll leave yourself plenty of safety margin during your dives. 

Navigation 

Descent Mk1 boasts a suite of navigational tools. GPS and GLOSNASS satellite tracking offers surface navigation, aided by the built-in altimeter, barometer, and compass sensors. The compass display operates underwater, with tilt-compensation that'll keep your bearing no matter what direction you're facing. The "tap to compass" feature lets you access it without having to dive into the function menus. 

Great for multisport activities, too

Descent Mk1 is at home at play outside the water, with the full suite of features found in Garmin's fenix 5X watches. Whether it's running, cycling, swimming, exploring the great outdoors or even golfing, you're equipped for whatever adventure you take on. 

Stay connected

Pair up with your compatible smartphone, and Descent Mk1 lets you receive text messages, emails, and smart notifications on the watch face. Garmin Connect offers automatic uploads, so you can track your dives and other activities. When your adventures take you out of the water, LiveTrack lets friends and family members follow your location in real time. And with GroupTrack, you can use your map display to keep tabs on buds during your adventures, whether it's taking a hike or hammering out a group ride.
