Shearwater Research has announced the launch of a new dive computer, the Peregrine

A simple and accessible, full-colour, multi-gas dive computer that will be easy to use for divers of all experience levels.

Shearwater Peregrine has four diving modes – Air, Nitrox, three Gas Nitrox and Gauge. With simplified recreational dive modes, full decompression support, built-in quick dive planner and wireless charging, the Peregrine is your ideal companion for many adventures to come.

Tyler Coen, Director of Engineering at Shearwater, explains the design concept behind the
Peregrine: “While a Shearwater [dive computer] at a lower price is a great concept, cost
reductions could not sacrifice Shearwater’s reputation. A fantastic screen, high robustness, and simple usability were non-negotiable. We found efficiencies by using the Perdix screen, Teric buttons, and by reducing the depth rating to 120m.

“Some advanced features like technical modes, the digital compass, and air integration were removed, but the fundamental Shearwater experience remains. Firmware is based on the Perdix recreational three-gas nitrox mode, further adding to that an even-simpler single-gas mode.

“A gauge mode is included, making the Peregrine a great back-up for those advancing on to technical diving. While the Peregrine’s price may grab attention, a quality diving experience was our focus throughout the design process.”

Some of the additional features that the Peregrine offers are a user-customizable display,
Bühlmann ZHL-16C with gradient factors, a depth rating of 120m, CNS Tracking, no
lockout for dive plan deviations, a rechargeable battery capable of yielding 30-hours of dive
time per charge, onboard dive logging storage of 200 hours, vibration alerts, Bluetooth
connectivity, and much more.
