Dive Computers

Shearwater Research Teric (limited edition)

With the start of a new decade and the Chinese New Year, perhaps that is why Shearwater Research has chosen to issue a limited edition version of their popular 'Teric' watch style computer in this significant colour combination.

Just 2,000

This is the first time that the award-winning Canadian company has released a limited-edition, and the matte gold-coloured bezel and a vivid red strap does look quite special. However, you will need to move fast to get your paws on one because just 2,000 have been manufactured. Each Teric is uniquely numbered and comes with a metal gold-coloured certificate of authenticity signed by Shearwater Research founder, Bruce Partridge.

Charger and Case

The Teric was originally launched two years ago. This version comes with an eye-catching red ballistic travel case and it has a wireless charger.

Shearwater dive computers have earned a much deserved reputation for being easy to use because they feature intuitive menus and interfaces.

Narked at 90 Petrel Custom Coloured Bezel

The British manufacturer 'Narked at 90' (who incidentally distribute Shearwater in the UK) have launched a custom coloured bezel. Although you can already personalise the start up 'splash screen' with your name or an image, it is still quite possible to pick up someone else's computer when you are distracted, hence this looks as though it could be a handy "this is mine" identifier.

A more protected Petrel

At present the Polycarbonate screen is quite robust and can take a knock. However some divers have been known to torque down the screws that hold the screen in place and this can compress the screen. The screen can then crack or micro cracks can develop around the screw holes. The polycarbonate screen is also predisposed to chemical damage. Narked at 90 states that the method of fitting the Titanium screen does not rely on the screw holes, therefore the screen cannot be squashed, giving it better longevity.

Ball Mount for Shearwater Teric

The ball mount comes in a standard 1-inch size, and, while still attached, allows the dive computer to be charged using the Shearwater charging sta-
tion. Using this ball mount makes all diving-related data visible right on top of the housing’s viewfinder. When the dive computer’s vibration alarm is activated, underwater photographers can “feel” the vibration notifications while still having their hands on the handles of the housing.

Suunto EON Core Dive Computer

The EON Core joins the EON Steel. (Suunto's first fully customisable dive computer launched in 2015, with a depth rating of 150 mt / 492 ft and a 20 - 40 hour battery life). The Suunto EON Core has been designed to be an entry level computer that grows with the diver throughout their diving career. From a shallow, open water, bubble blowing diver, up to and including CCR trimix diving to 80 mt / 262 feet.

This idea is not new. There are already a number of dive computers that will support a diver as their experience levels change. So what makes the Suunto EON Core unique?

  • Water Resistance: 80 mt / 262 ft
  • Colours: Black, White, Lime Green
  • Reinforced Composite Case
  • Mineral Crystal Glass
  • Elastomer Strap with the potential to swap out to a Bungee Strap
  • Weight: 154 gm / 5.43 oz
  • Wireless connectivity via Bluetooth to the Movescount App
  • Up to 10 tank pressure readings with Suunto Tank PODs
  • Tilt compensated 3D digital compass
  • Colour TFT display
  • Big clear digits
  • LED backlight, always on

Suunto Wireless Tank Pressure Transmitters

Suunto Product Recall

The Finnish manufacturer has identified a potential safety risk affecting all Suunto Wireless Tank Pressure Transmitters and Suunto Tank PODs that wirelessly transmit cylinder pressure to compatible Suunto dive computers.

In two reported incidents the exterior case of a Suunto Wireless Tank Pressure Transmitter has failed during regular dry land pressure testing. Although extremely rare, there is the potential for injury because of the risk of bursting.

Scubapro Galileo G2

The Galileo has now had a revamp with the launch of the G2. Certain key features introduced by In 2007, Scubapro released a ground-breaking new design with its Galileo dive computers - incorporating a heart rate monitor (via a separate chest belt) to increase the personalisation of decompression algorithms for different divers.

Suunto D4f Apnea Computer

The Finnish manufacturer launched their first freediving computer - the D3 - back in March 2003. Fourteen years on, they have unveiled their second freediving computer.

The D4f. This, like its ancestor, the D3, is specifically designed for apnea divers and water sports enthusiasts. The D4f takes its inspiration from the D4i model, however it it is not a decompression computer, nor does it have an air integration function.
