Garmin has unveiled a new version of its diving watch, and finally it’s better suited for smaller wrists.

The Descent Mk2s hasn’t yet landed on Garmin’s official site, but is listed on Amazon with full specs and details.

The Descent is built in the same ilk as the formidable Fenix 6X, but offers diving features including multiple dive modes, including single and multiple gas dives, gauge, apnea and gauge, and of course, 100 ATM water resistance.

You can also customise your own dives, store a 200 string dive log,

And it also acts as a Fenix device, with the ability to track a wide range of sports from running, clcyling, skiing, golf and surfing.

But the downside is the Descent MK2 case size is 51mm, which is absolutely ginormous. And that’s where the Mk2s comes in.

The Mk2s follows the same footprint as the Fenix 6S, so the case size is shrunk to 42mm – making it infinitely more wearable for smaller wrists. Yes, that means it’s more unisex, but anyone that finds a hulking 51mm watch too big will find the Mk2s appealing.

On Amazon it’s also listed with a bling light gold and sand, and there are gray and mineral blue colorways, too.

It features the same 1.2-inch color transflective LCD screen as the Fenix 6S, and also included built-in GPS and a pulse ox sensor. It features suggested workouts for those who likes to do more than diving, and Recovery Advisor and other Firstbeat metrics.

You also get Garmin Pay and it weighs just 45g. That’s pretty good, given the 100ATM water resistance and 30 hours battery life when diving and 7 days as a smartwatch.

It’s on pre-order for $999, which also makes it the most affordable Garmin Descent Mk2s to date.
