How to choose the right Computer

Why do I need Dive Computer?

A dive computer takes depth and time information and applies it to a decompression model to track the dissolved nitrogen in your body during a dive. Your computer continuously tells you how much dive time you safely have remaining. Dive Computer allows you to maximize your time enjoying the marine life and record and share your underwater adventures.

suunto-vyper-novo-whiteDive Computer Features:

Easy-to-read display that provides the following information:

No stop limits, Depth, Time, No stop time remaining, Ascent rate, Emergency decompression, Previous dive information, Low battery warning, Enriched air compatible.

Optional Features:

  • Air integrated to display how much air is in your tank (transmitter).
  • Replaceable or rechargeable batteries
  • Multiple gas computers for technical diving or a CCR (Closed-Circuit Rebreather) mode.
  • Interface with your laptop/regular computer so you can download your dive data.
  • Electronic compass or built-in thermometer.
  • Self-adjusting decompression models
  • Dot matrix screens with menus that allow you to play games to pass the time at safety or decompression stops
  • Automatic or manual adjustment for altitude diving
  • Mask display that allows you to glance at critical dive information.

How to Choose Your Dive Computer

  • Ask yourself – What type of diving do I do now and plan to do in the future? and What dive computer works with my current equipment, or what complete equipment package includes the type of computer I want? 
  • Look at dive computers with features that match your dive style and equipment setup. Evaluate:
    • Can you clearly read the data with your mask on?
    • Does the data display make sense to you – do you prefer numbers, or do you like graphics or charts?
    • Do you understand how to get the dive information you need?
  • Don’t hesitate investing in a good dive computer. Get what you want now and go scuba diving – that’s the point.

Keep your GoPro Dry

5 Features of the Moyo for GoPro®

Introducing the Moyo

1. Compatibility:

Show of hands for those that have recently upgraded from an earlier model GoPro® only to realize that most of your old accessories don’t fit anymore.  Filters and housings can get expensive, but Stahlsac cuts you a break.  The cavities inside are cut to fit the GoPro Hero 3, 3 +, and 4.  And just between you and me, if GoPro® came out with another revision tomorrow, that one would probably fit too.  So if you’ve been thinking about upgrading your camera soon, with the Moyo case, you’ll have one less new accessory to purchase.
