How to choose Replacing Watch Band for Garmin Descent (6)

Descent MK3 dive computer, Garmin's newest model for dive enthusiasts, features a 200-meter dive rating, it’s one of the most important features -rich dive smartwatches, and it can help you make the most out of each dive experience. The full MK3 series features a brilliant AMOLED touchscreen display with a sapphire crystal lens, and inductive leak-proof buttons, and are available in two sizes. The smaller option comes in a 43mm case and the choice between air and non-air integrated models. The 51mm version comes standard with air integration and titanium bezel, and you also get an integrated flashlight, one of the newest features to select Garmin Descent MK3 as your favorite watch.

With an impressively long battery life, you can place your focus where it should be, your time in and out of the water. Since these dive computers are also 24 -7 smartwatches, they can monitor our overall wellness and provide vital information that could influence dive plans from day to day. 

Dive Readiness is the latest in Garmin Dive technology that can show how lifestyle factors such as sleep, exercise, stress, and even jet lag can affect your body. This tool then helps you gauge when you are best prepared to dive. Once you know when you're ready to dive, They have another new tool to help you decide where to dive, the Dive View worldwide database. There are essentially two pieces to this feature. First, you have the Dive View bathymetry contours. These contours are included as part of the preloaded mapping in the MK3 series. With it, you have a great visual representation of the underwater topography, giving you a better understanding of just how deep an area is before you submerge. The other piece is a dive site database. Navigate to or see the sites closest to you directly on your wrist. This is especially beneficial in situations when you find yourself in an unfamiliar area.

In addition to the new dive computers, they've also announced the new Descent T2 transceiver. Built to endure the elements underwater, the T2 is dive-rated to 200 meters and offers reduced audible noise. When paired with your compatible air-integrated Descent dive computer, you'll also find improvements to air integration, like the ability to link up with 8 tanks when underwater at a range of up to 10 meters. And, coming soon, when paired with your MK3i, exchange messages with other members of your party wearing their compatible dive computers. Diver-to-diver messaging is just one part of a sonar-based communication and diver monitoring technology they call sub-wave sonar networking. Choose from preset messages that will be sent to your entire group at a range of up to 30 meters away. Any member of your party wanting the ability to send or receive messages will require their Descent MK3i and T2 transceiver. 

When created the MK1 and MK2 dive computers, Garmin hoped to give customers a full range of dive features and an advanced multi-sport smartwatch. And with the MK3, they've continued to create breakthrough dive technology. Complete this sub-aquatic ecosystem with the Garmin Dive smartphone app to review and relive your underwater adventures, no matter which descent you choose to put on your wrist. Discover a deeper connection with the new Descent MK3 dive computers and T2 transceivers.  For more information on these products and more, please be sure to visit

4,Alpine Loop Garmin Watch Band

A replacement watch band for Garmin Descent Dive watch must be water-resistant, or at least quick-dry material. That is why we don't recommend leather Quickfit for Garmin Descents. Alpine Loops are inspired by the Apple Watch Alpine loops. Alpine loops are very light weight and comfortable which make it become an indispensable collection to customers.  Unlike the first three straps, this model is locked by buckle, not velcro, which would be more secure for dive activities, because velcro would become weak after it go into the water. Try this one if you like the style.
