GALILEO HUD: the Revolutionary Hands-Free Dive Computer

1103453_alt07.jpg

The Galileo HUD is a hands-free dive computer with a virtual, floating heads-up display that mounts on your diving mask. It puts important dive information right in your field of vision so you never have to look away and can experience more freedom on your dive.

The new Galileo HUD is an innovative and thoroughly unique air-integrated dive computer. This new-to-the-dive-world, technologically-advanced computer offers a head-up display mounted on a diving mask. Delivering excellent readability along with hands-free data monitoring, with the introduction of the Galileo HUD SCUBAPRO engineers have created a user experience unlike anything previously seen in diving.

“Floating” Colour Display

The Galileo HUD’s micro OLED screen is designed to be mounted on a diving mask in close proximity to the human eye. Using precision near-eye optics, this “floating” display creates a screen image that appears at a virtual distance of approximately 3ft/1m, making it easy for divers to monitor their dive data without losing eye contact with their surroundings, or having to constantly refocus.

Dive information is displayed on the micro OLED screen protected in the housing, offering durability and superior readability in any ambient light conditions.

Unlike the Galileo HUD, conventional Combiner Glass HUD and Windshield HUD technologies available in automobiles project data on a sheet of transparent material such as glass, making them inherently fragile and easily affected by certain light conditions, making them suboptimal for diving applications.

The HUD screen is positioned just above the diver’s right-eye line of sight. This enables the right eye to maintain close to full visibility range at all times, with all dive data available with a simple upward glance.

Single-knob User Control

The Galileo HUD features an intuitive push-wheel that allows you to access and control HUD functions with one hand. To operate the push-wheel, simply rotate it to navigate up and down within a menu, or increase or decrease a user setting.

A press-and-release of the push-wheel turns on the HUD, takes you to the main menu, lets you enter the various sub-menus, select functions and save settings. A press-and-hold allows you to return to the previous menu or screen, edits settings, and from the Surface screen turn the HUD off. Throughout the process screen prompts indicate which type of press is required to accomplish each function.

Flip-up Hinge

Before or after a dive, or any time you don’t need ready-access to your dive data, the Galileo HUD offers a convenient Flip-Up feature, reminiscence of military night vision goggles, that enables you to tilt the HUD display up and out of the way. When it’s time to resume data monitoring, simply tilt the display back down into position and you’re ready to track your dive.

Benefits of Diving with a HUD

The Galileo HUD’s superior readability, which allows divers to keep their eyes on both their dive data and the underwater scenery without having to refocus, is a tremendous leap forward in computer diving. This hands-free data monitoring experience is a boon to photographers or anyone engaged in underwater activities that require both hands, including military and public safety divers.

Also, since divers don’t have to raise their arms or reach for consoles to check dive data, the HUD allows a more relaxed and streamlined profile moving through the water. And when it’s time to change screens or make adjustments, the single-knob control is easy to operate without having to search for multiple buttons.

The Galileo HUD is compatible with a variety of SCUBAPRO masks, including the Spectra, Spectra Mini, Zoom EVO (special mask holder), Synergy Twin, Synergy 2 Twin, Currents Pro, Vibe 2, Futura 1 and Pro Ear.
