Since its launch in November 2016, Deepblu’s rapidly expanding online community has grown to include tens of thousands of divers and ocean enthusiasts. Today, Scubapro, one of the most-iconic names in dive equipment, became the first to support the newly introduced Deepblu Connect, a feature that enables the Deepblu app to wirelessly interface directly with Scubapro’s line of Bluetooth-enabled dive computers.
With the push of a button, information from the Scubapro Aladin Sport (Matrix), Aladin H (Matrix) or the newly introduced Galileo 2 (G2) is wirelessly synchronised with the Deepblu app and stored in customisable, digital dive logs. This includes dive profiles, tank pressure levels, temperatures, depths and times. Divers then can enrich their logs with underwater photography and videography, store them in the cloud, and share them with their peers in the Deepblu community.
“We wanted to make dive logging on Deepblu accessible and easy for everyone, so we designed Deepblu Connect to be a convenient interface for Bluetooth-enabled dive computers to work with the app,” said Deepblu CEO James Tsuei. “We are excited to pilot the feature with Scubapro, one of the most-reputable and forward-looking companies in the dive industry.”
“For more than 50 years, divers around the world have looked to Scubapro for the most-innovative, advanced and intuitive products in the industry,” said Joe Stella, Group Vice President at Scubapro. “Divers are connected by a passion for what lies below the water’s surface and our support of Deepblu Connect will help those who put their trust in Scubapro’s dive computers to capture and share their experiences with the global community.”
Once dive logs are uploaded, recent updates to the Deepblu user interface make finding and tagging dive spots easier than ever. Divers can even leave ratings and reviews to help other divers, while gear enthusiasts can now complete their logs with information about nearly every piece of equipment they own.
Starting in August, Deepblu will hold a monthly dive-logging competition, allowing divers to earn badges they can showcase on their logs. The August winners will receive exciting prizes from Scubapro, including a G2 dive computer and other industry-leading Scubapro dive gear. To win, divers must accumulate praise for their logs from the Deepblu community and climb through the ranks from Dive Log of the Day to Dive Log of the Week and, ultimately, Dive Log of the Month.
