Introducing the Oceans S1 Supersonic
Today, Oceans is unleashing a next gen dive computer, adding a new dimension to scuba diving: buddy communication.
For scuba divers, communication under the surface is a challenge. Hand signals work well, but they’re hampered by one obvious caveat: the signals rely on divers looking at each other.
Over the past year, Oceans’ team of engineers and product designers have been working to create a next gen dive computer with an all-wireless design that syncs via Bluetooth to the Oceans app, features a 3D digital compass, silent haptic feedback and a hi-res color display.
Underwater buddy communications
And, as a first for a wrist-worn dive computer — using soundless ultrasonic waves — the device called “Oceans S1 Supersonic” allow you to summon your buddies, dive master or instructor with just a tap of a button. When activated, the S1 sends a ping message to each paired dive computer, and shows a notification on the display with the name of the diver looking for attention.
It’s a game changer. Have a look at this video and hear aquanaut and Oceans ambassador Fabien Cousteau introduce the Oceans S1 Supersonic:
We’ve been testing the Oceans S1 Supersonic extensively during fall and winter in the ice cold Stockholm archipelago, Sweden, and it’s ping feature is truly addictive!
