The Scubapro Chromis Dive Computer is a watch sized multi-sport dive computer that is at home 30m underwater on Nitrox or counting lengths in a pool. Lightweight polymer casing is robust but never cumbersome so you can wear this to the gym or comfortably on the plane to your diving destination.
Large Clear Display has been specially designed to have razor sharp digits that are easy to read at a glance. The Chromis can be worn as an everyday watch with a full range of timekeeping functions from dual-time for travelling divers to an alarm clock and a stopwatch. Swim Mode has a patented stroke counter that you can calibrate to either simply count strokes or calculate distance covered. Scuba, Gauge and Apnea Modes collect all of the data of your dives, whether you are on SCUBA, freediving or you need to disable the decompression algorithm for advanced diving.
ZHL8 ADT MB Algorithm was designed to reduce the formation of micro bubbles in your tissues for a safer dive every time. In the settings you can adjust the conservatism to your requirements to tailor the algorithm to either take up less nitrogen or off-gas faster depending on your setting and dive profile.
Compression Compensating Strap continues to grip your wetsuit as your descend so the computer won't come loose as your wetsuit compresses at depth.
Four Button User Interface is intuitive to use and each button is clearly marked for it's functions on the bezel. Cycle quickly backwards and forwards through menus to change settings and recall information.
- Casing features an engraved 316L stainless steel front ring and back plate.
- Four feed-through push buttons allow for easy navigation through the intuitive menu system.
- Large display and Samurai katana-sharp characters are exceptionally readable under water.
- Full topside time-keeping functions include a stopwatch, alarm clock and a built-in altimeter.
- Dive modes include Gauge mode and Apnea mode for maximum data crunching versatility under water.
- The Swim mode features a patented surface stroke counter that tracks strokes while also calculating distance.
- Independent stopwatch function is available under water in Scuba and Gauge modes.
- Continuously updated average depth display in Gauge mode can be reset at any time.
- Dive modes function to a maximum operating depth of 394ft/120m.
- ZHL8 ADT MB algorithm allows you program nitrox mixes from 21 to 100 percent oxygen.
- Micro bubble (MB) features allows you to choose from five levels of conservatism.
- Large capacity CR2430 battery is rated for two years or 300 dives.
- Zigzag strap design compensates for dive suit compression to maintain a secure fit at depth.
- Optional USB data interface (with cradle) is both PC and Mac compatible using LogTRAK software.
?A dive computer with air integration allows the diver to view the current cylinder pressure on the dive computer display. Some models also display breathing rates. Air integration can be achieved through either a high pressure hose attachment or by using a wireless transmitter. Close.
? A collection of features developed for free-divers and snorkellers that records how deep you are, how deep you have been and how long you can hold your breath.
Some computers include a faster sampling rate, specialized alarms
and warnings and specific logbook for apnea. Close.
?The format denotes the style of the computer, whether it is a standard wrist sized unit with large easy to read display, a smaller watch sized unit which can be worn for every occasion but still packs in all the same features or a console mounted unit which are available with or without air hose integration. Close.
|Display Illumination Type|
?Dive computer displays typically have one of two illumination types. Phosphorescent displays glow when charged by light such as torchlight, it will continue to glow until its charge is depleted or it is recharged. Dive computers with a backlight facility use an internal light source to illuminate the display for a short period of time before turning off to save the battery. Close.
?The type of screen affects what and how information can be displayed on a dive computer screen.
The simplest is a segment display that builds up characters using pieces of a fixed screen like a digital wrist watch. This is cost effective but limits the use of complex details.
A partial dot matrix screen stills uses a section of segment display for numbers but also has a section of tightly group squares that allow for text or graphs to be shown on the screen.
A full dot matrix screen completely does away with the segment section of the screen to give full use of the display.
Colour LCD screens use the same technology found in TVs to provide a high resolution colour display that gives very clear, vibrant dive information. The technology is more expensive but raises the computer to a new level.
OLED screens use a display of tiny LEDs that are very efficient and super sharp. The screen doesn't require a power hungry backlight and can still be seen in very low visibility. Close.
?Gas switching allows divers to use more than one gas mix whilst diving. For example, it allows a diver to switch from main breathing gas to an enriched oxygen mix to decompress faster when ascending. Close.
?An integrated compass helps to reduce additional pieces of equipment that need to be carried. Some console computers are equipped with a standard magnetic compass. A number of computers now feature an electronic compass that is built into the unit itself and operated through the menu system. The electronic compass shows the magnetic North all over the planet by recalibrating the compass for your current localation. Close.
?A Nitrox or EAN (Enriched Air Nitrox) compatible dive computer allows divers to benefit from the advantages of diving with an enriched oxygen gas mix including extended dive time without incurring mandatory decompression stops during the ascent. Close.
|21 to 100|
|PC Interface Compatible|
?A PC Interface alllows divers to download previous dive information and profiles for viewing and analysis on a PC. Depending on the model of dive computer this can include depths, times, alerts, breathing rates, temperatures, etc. Close.
|USB (not included)|
?A dedicated Closed-Circuit-Rebreather Mode that, depending on the computer, you can adjust and plan high and low setpoints, open circuit bailoutsand other features for diving with a rebreather. Close.
?A trimix compatible dive computer allows a suitably qualified diver to take advantage of the benefits of a Trimix gas consisting of oxygen, helium and nitrogen. Advantages include extended range diving and reduced narcosis effects. Close.
|User Changeable Battery|
?Modern dive computers allow divers to safely change the battery themselves with minimal risk of damage through flooding due to incorrect installation. The logbook and memory of previous dives are typically saved during the battery change. Watch sized dive computers typically still have to be returned to an authorised dealer to have their batteries change as special tools and usually needed to open the body. Close.
