I follow the instructions and delete dives I don’t want. Next time I open app the deleted dives are back. Messing up my dive count.
Great app, easy to use and syncs easily with my Descent Mk2i.
Got the GARMIN DESCENT MK1, Id been using it for the GYM (counts fairly the reps, misses one here and there but I don't mind that much), same on elliptical and treadmill. I have use it on Apnea, Apnea Hunt (only to 20ft) and for Open Circuit Scuba and it shines! Gives you accurate readings is super easy to use, the APP is very friendly. Best way to put it, the product is so good I just replace the strap for a titanium links band and use it for all (boxed my other watches...this thing is an ALL IN ONE TOOL!)
I really like the app and all the logging features. It keeps good data and I like the map feature but I wish it would let you add previous dives to the map and not just the log book. Maybe like how onXhunt app works where you could log different kinds of dives on the map with different colored and shaped pins.
I have been diving ~25 years now. I have tried several dive watch computers. The Descent MK2 is the absolute best! Initially, I purchased the Mk1 when launched. At that time, I was convinced it was superior to any other dive watch available. The only problem with it, however, is that it records dives in pools. So, you’ll have to delete dives after you are in the pool with the Mk1. The Mk2 has an option to turn off recording dives by easily setting to Pool mode. Also, I used the watch in terrible conditions during a PADI rescue certification course this past weekend. Not only was the compass easy to quickly use with just a tap on the watch but also the clarity of the screen was great even with awful viz. The battery dropped to 40% from 100% throughout the day as well. I’m unsure how the battery will handle 3 full dives in a single day (charge). We will see soon. Anyway, I’m now looking forward to buying the transmitter when available. Will probably buy two transmitters so I can monitor my 14yr olds tank for extra safety while he begins learning to dive. In terms of cost, the Mk1 is 1000 new from Garmin. As low as 500 used on eBay. The Mk2 new is 300 more from garmin. The Mk2i that allows use of transmitter is 1500 bucks for a new one. It’s likely you’ll spend north of 500 for an alternative dive watch computers not including a transmitter, btw. One last thing, the garmin watches also offer all the other fitness data as well. The Mk2 also stores music and credit card info so you can make transactions similar to an Apple Watch. I admit it’s on the big side compared to a typical wrist watch but I have gotten used to mine and wear daily. Perfect for running, cycling, etc. Can get food or drink while outside exercising. Just need earbuds to hear music. You can also buy garmin sensors for your bike which the easily links cycling data to your watch and laptop too. I only wish I could link my watch to iFit on the Nordictrak platform. Overall, tons of nice things to say about Garmin dive watches. In fact, I challenge anyone to make a case for a dive watch computer that’s better than the Mk2. If money is the issue then you should be looking at a good used Mk1.
Decent app. I’d be more enthusiastic if the vast majority of information wasn’t already available in almost identical format in the Garmin Connect app. My wish list to make this a 5-star app would include: - more detail contained within the dive profile section (similar to Shearwater layout) - display of warning and alerts triggered within each dive (e.g., ascent rate warnings, ceiling violations, etc) - increased functionality with the “explore” section. There’s currently no sharing capability and the database of dive sites is pretty sparse. There’s a lot of potential especially when used in combination with Garmin’s own Mk1 computer, but it feels pretty bare-bones in its current version.
Garmin, perfect! Able to add dives and everything. Thanks!!!!
Nice work so far. Please add a share function so that you can share individual dives on social media.
The Garmin Decent and most of the app allows recording details in meters OR imperial “feet” except the visibility logging (no feet option). Seems like an oversight , hope it is fixed soon. Also this app is missing wetsuit type and thickness and equipment list as in the regular Garmin Connect App. Love the stand-alone dive app! Thanks for releasing it! Please keep refining it!
