Radar with Furuno esque watchman mode

Does anyone know of any other radar manufacturers that offer something similar to the watchman mode that Furuno offers?

Most modern radars implement a timed sweep of a guard zone yes.

So a small raymarine unit can be programmed to scan only once every ten mins and go back to sleep if no targets were detected in the guard zone?

Yes , for example the C series MFD, Allows you to set the wakeup interval and number of scans, you can set the guard zone up independently. It's called " timed transmit "
