Introducing the Mares Genius Dive Computer

Published

on

The most evolved dive computer on the market! 

The brain of the Genius is powered by the ZH-L16C algorithm, the classic Bühlmann, with the integration of an editable gradient factor. The most popular algorithm with technical dive enthusiasts has now been made ‘recreational’, with the option for personalized settings.

The ‘Technical’ setting allows you to choose from four presets, T0 to T3, or to set the values directly under the “Custom” setting option. The “Recreational” setting provides four preset combinations, R0 to R3, including exclusive functions to fully customize the parameters of your computer:

  • Physiology: based on physical condition and personal experience of your physiological reaction during and after a dive, you can select from 4 different levels. Each level makes the gradient factor more conservative.
  • Dive: This setting allows for ocean conditions input. again over 4 levels. This can be set during the dive, for example if you encounter strong current.
  • Me Today: Select a gradient factor based on how you feel. If you suffered from lack of sleep, feeling dehydrated, or just a bit below par, you can set the computer to be more conservative.
