Shearwater Research this week announced updates to two of the company’s dive computers, the PERDIX 2 and PETREL 3.

The aluminosilicate glass lens guards a 2.2-inch/5.59cm bright screen and offers improved clarity, impact and damage resistance. A vibrating, customizable alert system draws attention at certain moments of the dive.

Air integration with up to four Shearwater transmitters allows room to grow, according to the company.

The PERDIX 2 is available in Ti and Ti Black color finishes. Before taxes, the Ti retails for CAD$1,370/~US1,090/€1,013, and the Ti Black retails for CAD$1420/~US$1,129/~€1,050.
