Ratio Computers’ iDive freediving and diving computers are not just a gauge, but actual computers with their own operating system and a true diving and freediving assistant, Chief Technology Officer Attilio Piacente told DeeperBlue.com at DEMA Show 2016.
One of the iDive’s features is that for training you can input your desired depth for that day and it will calculate and set up all your warm-up dives.
The display will show the time of your surface interval in black and will turn white when you are ready to dive again to make it easier to keep track of the time and not being necessary to read the numbers.
All their freediving computers include a new IPTM algorith for Taravana prevention, Hemoptysis prevention, a 3D compass, USB interface as well as a rechargeable, integrated battery which lasts for up to 40 hours of dive time and 2-3 months in watch mode with 6-7 months on standby mode.
The display is 100 percent matrix 80/80 pixels and is backlit by a SuperBright LED light.
The Advantage model has a maximum depth range of 220 meters/722 feet, and the Sport Edition is waterproof down to 150 meters/492 feet.
