Descent G1 Solar - Black


Land or sea, this compact dive computer is built for both of your worlds.

Support for multiple dive modes — ranging from technical to free dives.

GPS enabled to help mark surface entry and exit points.

Store up to 200 dives. Upload, share and review dives in the Garmin Dive™ app1.

Measure your performance, and track your stats above water.

Track your activities with more than 30 built-in sports apps and advanced training features.

Explore longer with up to 25 hours in dive mode, up to 124 days in smartwatch mode when solar charging2 and up to 39 hours in GPS mode when solar charging3.


This rugged dive computer is water-rated to 100 metres, features a sapphire lens and is rated to MIL-STD-810.


With a high-contrast display and purpose-built design, this device is meant to wow you.

Deep feature set.


Get multiple dive modes for single and multiple gas dives (including nitrox and trimix), gauge, apnea, apnea hunt and closed-circuit rebreather.


Track your entry and exit2 points with advanced satellite connectivity.


Store and review data for up to 200 dives — and share via the Garmin Dive app.


Add additional screens for each dive mode that features the fields you want to see.


Pair with inReach satellite communicators2 and the inReach dive case (each sold separately).


Easily navigate below the waterline with the built-in 3-axis compass.


Stay up to date on ocean conditions so you can catch the perfect wave. Just pair the watch with your compatible smartphone.


See conditions — such as tide, wave height, wind and surf rating — for each of the five nearest surf spots, when paired with the Garmin Connect™ app on your compatible smartphone.

Push performance to a whole new level.


Use preloaded activity profiles for trail running, swimming, running, biking, hiking, rowing, skiing, golfing and more.


This feature uses chronological age, your weekly vigorous activity and resting heart rate to estimate if your body is younger or older than you are. And you can get tips to lower your fitness age.


After each workout, recovery time lets you know when you’ll be ready for another hard workout. It even accounts for training intensity and factors such as stress, daily activity and sleep.


This metric evaluates your recent exercise history and performance indicators to let you know if you’re training productively, peaking or overreaching.


For training guidance that takes you and your fitness level into account, get daily run suggestions based on your current training load and status.


Track how you’re breathing throughout the day, during sleep, and during breathwork.

You reach new heights. Your watch goes with you.


Get a full breakdown of your light, deep and REM sleep stages. View it all on a dedicated widget that includes your sleep score and insights.


Track how many minutes of vigorous activity you’re getting, when you earn them and during which activity. You can even view them as a data field during timed activities.


Track your body’s energy levels so you can find the best times for activity and rest.


Log daily fluid intake as a reminder to stay hydrated. When auto goal is enabled, you’ll even see estimated sweat loss after an activity, and your goal will adjust accordingly.


Use the Garmin Connect™ app to track your menstrual cycle or pregnancy. Log symptoms, get exercise and nutrition education, and more.


The watch constantly samples your heart rate4 and will alert you if it stays too high or too low while you’re at rest. It also helps gauge how hard you work during activities — even while swimming.

Designed for both your worlds.


Enjoy a rugged, watch-style dive computer with a sapphire lens, silicone bands and an easy-to-read monochrome display.


Receive emails, texts and alerts right on your wrist when paired with a compatible device.


Stay in the water longer with up to 25 hours in dive mode, up to 124 days in smartwatch mode when solar charging2 and up to 39 hours in GPS mode when solar charging3.


When your watch and phone are paired, your live location can be sent to your contacts manually or — during select outdoor activities — automatically with built-in Incident Detection5.


Breeze through checkout lines with Garmin Pay contactless payments6 through participating providers.


Download custom watch faces, add data fields, and get apps and widgets from the Connect IQ Store.
