THE HANDS-FREE GALILEO HUD

The Galileo HUD is an innovative and unique air-integrated dive computer that will forever change the way of diving. This technologically-advanced dive computer offers a head-up display that is mounted on a dual-lens mask, delivering excellent readability along with hands-free data monitoring.

“FLOATING” DISPLAY: The Galileo HUD 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, which allows divers to keep their eyes on both their dive data and the underwater scenery at the same time.

SINGLE-KNOB USER CONTROL: When it’s time to change screens or make adjustments, the Galileo HUD features an intuitive push-wheel that allows you to access functions with one hand. To operate the push-wheel, it has to be simply rotated to navigate up and down within a menu, or increase or decrease a user setting.

Published

on

As a boost to help the diving industry, NAUI are still offering a FREE Instructor cross-over course together with five free certifications to all Instructors. This can include Open Water, Advance, Rescue, Nitrox and various other specialities and can be mixed and matched so all five do not necessarily need to be for the same certification.

NAUI have also frozen the membership fees for 2021 for instructors crossing over or restarting.

NAUI’s Southern UK Rep Simon Lodge says: “Throughout this year, the diving industry has severely suffered so as a result, to help kickstart the diving industry NAUI will not be charging membership fees 2020/2021 to any new instructors.” 

Founded in 1960, NAUI Worldwide is one of the scuba industry’s largest not-for-profit agencies whose purpose is to enable people to enjoy underwater activities as safely as possible by providing the highest quality practical education, and to actively promote the preservation and protection of the world’s underwater environments. As a pioneer in diving education, NAUI has developed many of the programs and concepts accepted throughout the diving industry. NAUI: A Higher Standard!
