SCUBA divers looking for a scuba dive computer complete with buddy communication system and air integration, may be interested in the new Oceans S2 Supersonic dive computer launched via Kickstarter this month.

Specially priced early bird pledges are now available for the recently launched project from roughly $346 or £256 (depending on current exchange rates). If the Oceans S2 Supersonic campaign successfully raises its required pledge goal and production progresses smoothly, worldwide shipping is expected to take place sometime around August 2021.

“In 2019, the team at Oceans launched a successful Kickstarter campaign for the first wearable dive computer with built-in buddy communications, and made it possible for recreational divers to easily communicate underwater. Over the past 2 years, Oceans’ R&D team have been working to take S1’s unique feature set even further — on our mission to create a dive system for the 21st century scuba diver. With Oceans S2 Supersonic, we are improving on every single aspect of S1, and introducing additional features to the next generation of the S-series dive computers.”
Features and specifications of the Oceans S2 Supersonic scuba dive computer include:
– Dimensions: 75 × 30 × 30mm
– Weight: 100g
– Battery: Recharchable, 10 hours of diving
– Connection: USB-C (for charging)

– Supersonic sonar communication (range up to 15m/50ft)
“The Supersonic sonar communication system, a hero feature of the S-series that allow divers to communicate wirelessly underwater, will now let you to send predefined messages to your buddy in addition to regular buddy pings. From now on, no shark sighting will go unnoticed!”
“S2 adds 5 additional messages that can be sent to connected buddys by long-pressing the ping button. The options include “Ascend”, “Stay”, “Cold”, “Shark”, and “Assist”. As with S1, buddy comms work at a rated distance of 20 meters (60ft) or more depending on conditions. (In tests with clear line of sight, we have been able to communicate at a distance of more than 50 meters!)air”
