Shearwater Research, a veritable force in the dive equipment world and household name for divers the world over, has chosen to become part of Deepblu’s “Elite Fleet,” making them the third brand, following Scubapro and TUSA, to add Deepblu Connect functionality. Shearwater’s addition to Deepblu Connect will now allow Shearwater users to seamlessly upload their dive logs and the information supplementing them to the Deepblu app, eliminating the need for the old, soggy, ink-and-paper logs and making it easier to log in the digital age of diving.
Based in Richmond, British Columbia, in a brief span of thirteen years Shearwater now commands a leading position designing and manufacturing dive computers and rebreather electronics. With roots in technical diving, Shearwater dive computers feature intuitive menus and interfaces that make them easy to use for divers at all development levels. The company provides advanced diving electronics to users all over the world. Known for being reliable, user friendly, and easy to read underwater, Shearwater’s computers are designed to improve the journey for divers everywhere.
The brand currently has three models integrating into Deepblu, with one more in the near future. The Petrel 2, Perdix, and Perdix AI are now useable with the dive logging app, in addition, NERD 2 connectivity is coming soon. With user customizable menus, all four models are fully capable of handling dives ranging from simple entry levels to the more complex, multi gas rebreather dives pushing the limits of modern diving capabilities. Perdix AI is extremely popular due to its rugged design, bright display and air integration. NERD 2 is an innovative computer that allows divers to unobtrusively access all their dive information with a glance to the near eye remote display.
Shearwater president Steve Prescesky says:
