Cressi Giotto Mixed Gas Dive Computer

Published

on

Cressi Giotto

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Giotto is the first Mixed Gas dive computer designed and built entirely by Cressi.

The 3 button interface makes it effortless to program Air, Nitrox and Gauge modes from the first time a diver picks the computer up.

The high-definition screen gives large numerical displays in a computer that is still compact and travel-friendly.

The clearly visible battery life indicator and distinct audible alarms deliver critical information as well as peace-of-mind during the dive.

The Giotto can also be fully re-set after each use, making it an excellent choice for rental departments.

It has a new algorithm created through a collaboration between Cressi and Bruce Wienke based on the Haldane model, integrated with RGBM factors for safe decompression calculations in repetitive multi-day dives and with mixtures.

The software handles two different hyper-oxygenated mixtures, which can be selected during the dive.

About Bare

WE’RE NOT JUST IN YOUR ELEMENT; WE WERE BORN THERE

In a small factory on the coast of British Columbia—the brainchild of 2 divers determined on crafting a drysuit capable of surviving the frigid waters of the Canadian Pacific Ocean. With every stitch, our founders innovated. Through every failure, they pushed. Not for profit. For performance. To bring the sport of diving, equipment that fit better, functioned better, and lasted longer.

WE’VE SOLIDIFIED OUR HERITAGE AND THE PRINCIPLES WE WERE FOUNDED ON.

Our reputation for premier dive equipment has been upheld by the heart and passion each of our workers puts into every suit they make. Because, like our founders, they don’t just make the suits, they dive in them. It is this strong culture and unrelenting dedication to fit, craftsmanship, and innovation that has helped take us from that small shop in British Columbia to a global brand.
