If you don't need the dive functionality they are releasing the Garmin Tactix Charlie soon. All of these are variations of the Fenix 5x. The only difference that I see between a 5x and the Tactix Charlie is the Titanium bezel and back with Diamond Like Coating (DLC). The Ti band sells for $230 on it's own and can be added to a 5x or any other variant.

I assume that the price difference between the Descent Mk1 and the others is the depth sensor and higher levels of testing for certification at 100 meters.
