Essential reading: How wearable technology is changing water-sports
The Taiwanese startup consists of a team of enthusiastic divers with a tech background. What makes their dive computers unique is the social aspect. Enabled by a platform via the Deepblu mobile app for smartphones, its grown to over 40,000 active members to essentially become a “Facebook for Divers”. A place where users can connect, make friends and get inspired for their next diving adventure.
The network allows users to share dive logs and connect with dive buddies around the world. With over 300,000 dive logs, Deepblu has more unique user data on diving than any other diving app.
The newly launched COSMIQ+ is chock-full of features. With modes for freediving, recreational and technical diving, there is something for divers of all walks and skill levels.
Stats lovers will feel right at home. In the water the gizmo provides: current depth, deepest depth, water temperature, time elapsed, oxygen level (21%-40%), no decompression limit (NDL), ceiling depth, decompression stop time(s) and ascent rate. On land it dishes out: surface interval, a dive plan function, the ability to review past dive logs and more. All this is viewable on the 2.2-inch high-contrast LCD screen.
The lithium-ion battery provides up to 12 hours of operating time per charge. This allows divers to enjoy their trip without the hassle and worry of having to change a battery or seek out a new one.
COSMIQ+ comes with a sleek carrying case and a choice of colors. Its available now on Amazon.
