The Heinrichs Weikamp bottom timer comes with super-sharp IPS-LCD, user-friendly operation and extended battery life (depending on the display brightness setting, which ranges up to 100h)—all housed in a tough aluminium case.
As much as possible, Fourth Element embraces two principles; Zero Waste and Zero Plastic. They achieve this by re-purposing as much plastic as possible, whilst finding new uses for products at the end of their lives. The company has therefore carved out an environmental niche by producing "grave to cradle" 'Ocean Positive' products for scuba divers.
“We believe that this is the way,” said Jim Standing, co-founder of Fourth Element. “We are all going to have to tackle the challenges of a post covid world and one of these will be how we deal with the waste we have created as part of keeping ourselves and in particular, our frontline workers protected. We intend to play our part.”
Doing something right has never been more important that being ready—and even eager—to change for the better. What was considered great a few years ago is not always great today. All we need is to find a better option, since what was right yesterday, may not be right anymore. Doing It Right (DIR) is about doing it better than it was done before. For me, that is the only right thing to do.
They have devoted over two decades of in-water and manufacturing experience to this style of diving. Consequently when this Floridian brand unveils a new sidemount product, 'divers in-the-know' sit up and take notice.
Dive Rite's latest evolution of their popular 'Nomad' sidemount system was unveiled at DEMA.2016 in Las Vegas.
"Due to changes in certification standards and changes in approvals of key electronics components that in turn have led to delays in the CE certification process, the expected delivery time for the first batch of M28 Computers will now be in August.
We sincerely apologize for this delay, however it is out of our hands and we are doing everything we can to keep things moving forward swiftly."
In early 1968 John Kanwisher and Walter Stark met by chance. They soon learned that each man had been considering the feasibility of a mixed gas closed circuit rebreather (CCRB) using electronic sensors to control the Partial Pressure of Oxygen (ppO2). They collaborated and the result was the Electrolung.
The nascence of recreational rebreathers was just waiting to happen. Spurred on by rapid advances in technical diving, new materials and technology, coupled with cost reductions, the allure of long and quiet dives, with vastly improved non-deco times, had to seep from the technical communities to recreational diving, leading to the design of a new generation of closed circuit rebreathers aimed primarily at recreational divers.
When I started scuba diving, I became aware of the limitations of an injured body. Every time I carried a scuba tank, the acute pain in my lower back and shoulders increased, and it took a long time for the pain to go away. I did not want to give up scuba diving, so I looked for a solution and found one—diving sidemount.
