The Salvimar Ratio iDive Freediving Computer is a new and unique freediving computer with many one-of-a-kind features. The Ratio iDive has three dive modes and provides Taravana Control. The iDive-Free monitors each single dive run and calculates the minimum recovery time between the dive runs. It can even be customized by the free diver to meet their physical requirements. Hemoptysis Control; The iDive-Free is able to reduce at minimum the hemoptysis risk, by guiding the free diver in the very first dive runs of the free dive session, indicating which is the maximum depth that he can reach for that dive. Even this control can be customized to the free diver requirements. The best performance with maximum safety. The third mode is for use with Scuba. The computers algorithm is a Buhlmann ZHL-16 B when use with Scuba. This algorithm is a real time algorithm allowing maximum of flexibility, reliability and performance. The iDive series integrates the real and complete algorithm to calculate your current tissue saturation and afterwards decompression profile in real time. This allows to obtain reliable and very safe decompression profiles. Most dive computers algorithms make interpolation of stored data to calculate decompression profiles of the dive profile made by the diver. A cheap way to do it, but you have to adapt your dive to the profiles stored in the dive computer. The iDive is neither more nor less conservative in comparison with the other computers. It is just "right".
The Ratio iDive-Free has repetitive dive management, more dives a day in more day is no problem at all. Featuring the real time algorithms the iDive calculates your real tissue saturation status and calculates your repetitive dive profile according to your previous dives. This means that your profile is always optimized, even after more days of repetitive dives. Computer has a user settable deep stop and safety stop function. Choose if you want the iDive to use the Deep Stops or not and choose the depth you prefer to perform the Safety Stop. Big and bright data you will read it just fine. Size does matter: The dive data on the iDive are from 15% to 30% bigger than on all the other others watch-dive computers. The display is an 80 x 80 pixel 100% matrix. Bright, Brighter, Brightest! Set the backlight and the contrast of the display as you prefer, the iDive has a long life USB rechargeable battery, use it as much as you want without the hassle of changing the battery. Advanced management of the backlight: Even the backlight management is special in the iDive: totally automatic, totally manual or always on during the dive. You have just to choose!
You can use any USB port to recharge the iDive, even the wall charger of your smartphone or tablet. Why a rechargeable battery is better: You don't have to change the battery almost every year. No risk of wear, humidity or seepage owing to the battery change. (Have you ever noticed that after the first replacement, the battery change becomes more frequent?) You can use all computer functions without worrying about battery being exhausted. (Backlight, Compass, Apps ...) You can recharge the iDive wherever a USB port is. (Have you ever tried to change batteries at the Maldives or during a cruise?) Flexible and customizable. A true watch, elegant and sportive. Style does matter. Show your nature of scuba diver, in every moment of the day.
The iDive-Free with its USB compatibility allows you to get free upgrades when they are available. The USB cable you use to recharge the iDive is the same you use to connect to the PC or Mac. The Dive Logger can be downloaded for free and there are no hidden cost at all. The updates are free, the new applications are free and the PC or Mac interface is always included. The iDive-Free has a maximum depth rating of 721' (220 meters), is cased in corrosion resistant 315L stainless steel with a sapphire crystal. Case is precision-machined into its final form and polished for many hours to produce the desired finish. Almost indestructible and scratch-resistant, the top glass of the iDive is virtually more resistant than the stainless steel case that house it. The Sapphire has a 9/10 hardness factor on the Mohs scale (the diamond has 10/10) and you would not be able to scratch it with a knife. The computer measures 1.85" x 0.63" (47 mm x 16 mm), weighs 4.94 oz. (140 g) and comes with an owner's manual and rubber wrist strap.
The computer has a 100 hour memory, is programmable for fresh or salt water, feet or meters, oxygen content of breathing gas, and has a dive planner function. Computer can be set for a 12 or 24 hour time format and date, month and year. There are alarm functions, altitude adjustability, wait to fly information and much more.
