'Buddy Watcher’ Generates Buzz At DEMA Show 2015

We have all experienced the frustration of trying to get someone’s attention while they are looking around at other things underwater. Aside from occasionally annoying, it can also be a real safety problem if your buddy drifts off too far.

One new product, the Buddy Watcher, was generating a lot of buzz at this week’s DEMA Show in Orlando.

The Buddy Watcher works by sending a signal between your bracelet and your buddies with the touch of a button. What you feel is a vibration on the wrist, strong enough to be felt through a dry suit. It also has a light-up string of dots on the screen when a signal is received.

Buddy Watcher works up to 66 feet away, guaranteed, underwater. There is also a version that can be used by guides where you can alert a whole group at one time with a sent signal.

Buddy Watcher sells as a set of two for US$199. For more information, check out their website at www.Buddy-watcher.com.
