Shearwater unveils new Perdix technical dive computer

Shearwater has unveiled its new Perdix technical dive computer.

If you’re going to the Dusseldorf Boat Show later this month, be sure to check out Shearwater Research’s latest technical dive computer, the Perdix.

The new Perdix dive computer is 30 percent slimmer than the company’s Petrel model but maintains the same ruggedness and many of the modes featured in the PetrelOpen-Circuit Recreational, Open-Circuit Technical, Closed-Circuit fixed PPO2, and Gauge Mode.

One area where the Perdix beats the Petrel is in battery life, according to Shearwater. The Petrel sports a five-hour operating time at medium brightness, while the Perdix can go for more than 50 hours under the same conditions.

Like the Petrel, the Perdix sports a user-friendly, two-button menu system, 1000-hour dive log, a user-replaceable AA battery well with a double-O-ring seal for peace of mind, and free, Bluetooth-integrated firmware releases.

The 2.2-inch/5.6cm high-resolution LCD display has enhanced color saturation and can show user-customizable dive information. You can wear it via an integrated bungee mount or the classic strap mounts, depending on your preference.

The Perdix retails for around US$900/829 Euros for the basic model.

If you are in fact in Germany for the Dusseldorf Boat Show from January 23-31, you’ll be able to check the Perdix out at the dive2gether booth (#3J05).
