VANCOUVER, British Columbia – January 4, 2016 – Shearwater Research Inc., is proud to present their newest dive computer: The Perdix. Merging state of the art manufacturing techniques and innovative engineering materials, Shearwater has successfully developed a low-profile, sleekly contoured design without sacrificing features vital to technical divers.
Like the Petrel, the Perdix features several modes including Open-Circuit Recreational, Open-Circuit Technical, Closed-Circuit fixed PPO2, and Gauge Mode to suit any diving style. Much like its predecessor, the Perdix offers a user friendly, 2 button menu system, 1000-hour dive log, user replaceable AA battery, and free firmware releases with Bluetooth integration.
Pertinent and user customizable dive information is clearly presented on the large, high resolution, 2.2” LCD display with enhanced colour saturation. The design of the Perdix is roughly 30% smaller in volume than the Petrel, with an increased battery life of using any type of AA battery. The Perdix is also equipped with an integrated bungee mount along with the classic strap mounts, giving Shearwater divers more flexibility on how to wear their computers.
Full technical specifications for the Perdix can be found on Shearwater’s Website and a tutorial video highlighting the different features will be released shortly on their YouTube page. The Perdix is now available for purchase through the Shearwater dealer network.
The Perdix will be showcased at the “Salon de Plongeé” show in Paris, France between January 8th and 11th at the Innodive booth (#D17). It will also be showcased at the “Boot” show in Dusseldorf, Germany between January 23rd and 31st at the dive2gether booth (#3J05).
Shearwater is committed to providing divers with simple, powerful, and reliable dive computers and this mission continues with the Perdix.
