“From recreational to technical and every dive in between, the Descent Mk3 series and Descent T2 transceiver add innovative new features to help you explore deeper waters. One of those being enhancements to our SubWave sonar technology, which now makes it possible to communicate with other divers and even request assistance from nearby divers when help is needed—right from the wrist. This, coupled with air integration, DiveView maps and dive readiness tools help make these premium dive computers an essential part of your dive kit.” –Dan Bartel, Garmin Vice President of Global Consumer Sales.
