I’ve just checked the documentation for the Managed Kubernetes and according to that you can also install popular tools like Helm, metrics-server, and Istio. You can see the documentation here.

I can see that DigitalOcean also have a tutorial on how to install Istio:

I’ve not tested this with the Managed Kubernetes though.

A service mesh is an infrastructure layer that allows you to manage communication between your application's microservices. In this tutorial, you will install Istio using the Helm package manager for Kubernetes. You will then use Istio to expose a Node.js application by creating a Gateway and Virtual Service. You will then access the Grafana telemetry addon to visualize traffic data.
