With early bird pledges available from £250 offering a considerable 40% saving of the recommended retail price which will take effect once the campaign comes to an end. watch the demonstration video below to learn more about the Oceans S1 Supersonic dive computer and its features.
Development team behind the Oceans S1 Supersonic dive computer and buddy communication system explain more about its inspiration.
“Hand signals work well, but they’re hampered by one obvious caveat: the signals rely on divers looking at each other. But improving underwater communication is hard and radio waves used for communications on land fade out instantly under water. In addition to high-end features like a retina class color display, 3-axis digital compass, haptic feedback and wireless charging, we’re adding a new dimension to recreational dive computers — buddy communication. “
