Shearwater Research, a veritable force in the dive equipment world and household name for divers the world over, has chosen to become part of Deepblu’s ‘Elite Fleet’, making them the third brand, following Scubapro and TUSA, to add Deepblu Connect functionality.
Shearwater’s upcoming addition to Deepblu Connect will allow Shearwater users to seamlessly upload their dive logs and the information supplementing them to the Deepblu app, eliminating the need for the old, soggy, ink-and-paper logs, making it easier to log in the digital age of diving. Deepblu anticipates that Deepblu Connect will support Shearwater products by year-end.
Based in Richmond, British Columbia, in a brief span of 13 years, Shearwater now commands a leading position designing and manufacturing dive computers and rebreather electronics. With roots in technical diving, Shearwater dive computers feature intuitive menus and interfaces that make them easy to use for divers at all development levels. The company provides advanced diving electronics to users all over the world. Known for being reliable, user-friendly, and easy to read underwater, Shearwater’s computers are designed to improve the journey for divers everywhere.
The brand will have four models integrating into Deepblu. The NERD 2, Petrel 2, Perdix, and Perdix AI will be useable with the dive logging app. With user-customisable menus, all four models are fully capable of handling dives ranging from simple entry levels to the more-complex, multi-gas rebreather dives pushing the limits of modern diving capabilities. Perdix AI is extremely popular due to its rugged design, bright display and air integration. NERD 2 is an innovative computer that allows divers to unobtrusively access all their dive information with a glance to the near eye remote display.
“At Shearwater we pride ourselves in providing the best possible service to our customers. By joining Deepblu’s ‘Elite Fleet’, we seek to further enhance dive logging and sharing capabilities available to our customers,” says Shearwater president Steve Prescesky.
Shearwater has been cited in multiple articles and award rankings as one of the best dive computer companies on the planet. “Deepblu is excited to welcome Shearwater to the platform and have them as a Deepblu Connect partner. Utilising the Deepblu platform along with Shearwater computers will enhance the way divers capture their dives. With the Shearwater integration, more interesting users will also be introduced to the community,” says Deepblu CEO James Tsuei.
