Garmin Descent MK3? nah
Today on Twitter Garmin is teasing an ocean monster from the deep.
This is hardly likely to be referring to the latest aviation offering from the company and is almost certainly a marine product initially thought to be a new Descent Dive Watch but instead its a trolling motor
That said, we are due a next-generation Garmin dive watch and information from the Garmin forums suggests the same, albeit weakly so.
Garmin’s MK2 and MK2i were launched in October 2020, followed by the smaller MK2s six months later. That’s a fair while ago by Garmin’s standards and all that divers have seen in the interim is the ‘budget’ Descent G1 (Based on Instinct). The MK2/2i/2s were based on Garmin’s even older Fenix 6 model.
It seems reasonable that Garmin MK3 will be soon, perhaps also with an MK3i and MK3s. The MK3/MK3i would be the ‘large’ versions with a 1.4″ screen and optional Air Integration whereas the MK3s is the smallest 1.2″ display option. There would be no normal-sized display for the dive watches and the new dive computers would be based on the regular Fenix 7X (7X non-Pro would be my assumption).
Don’t expect to see an AMOLED screen on a Pro-level dive watch like this.
What was once a superstition throughout the sea is now your biggest asset in conquering it.
