ADEX was more of a marketing opportunity for them. It is a pretty neat dive computer considering you can immediately sync your dive via BT to your phone.

I'm interested in their desktop platform that's launching in July. James, DeepBlu's CEO claims that it will be able to support files from the other popular dive computer manufacturers, like Suunto. Basically, an Endomondo/Strava for divers.

I've got a nikon AW130 that allows me to sync my photos to my iphone too... Hmm... But I haven't got the Cosmiq yet... Hmm... I'll wait for the reviews after this weekend..

Actually the comp does more than this. It's very interactive (if all uses the same comp). Say a DM uses Cosmiq and his group of divers also use the same, the DM can "sign" their log via the comp. That's why DM and Instructors can sign up as their ambassadors. DeepBlu will do a background check on the applicant and make sure its valid. Once done, they can "sign" off anyone who uses Cosmiq.

Here are my feedback about the dive com, I brought it to Tioman last weekend, I used it together with the OSTC for comparison:

In a simple word, this is a basic dive computer, the computer will automatically turn into dive mode when in the water, just like any other computers:



In comparison with OSTC display



When in the water, nothing can be changed, the buttons are inactive, it displays
1. Battery level,
2. water temperature,
3. Dive time,
4. Current depth,
5. No Deco Time,
6. Current Time, this is usually no present in most Dive com.
7. The safety stop timer starts down count from 6Meter depth (not shown in the pic), display at the right bottom.

The advantages I see in this dive com are the big digits display, that is good for senior divers (in age) and the back light display easily seen under water especially for night dive, you don't need to shine the torch and can read it directly



The picture on the left is the display of DeepBlu, the one on the right is from OSTC (Oled display).

About battery for this dive com:

This dive com comes with built in non-replaceable rechargeable battery, the battery life is stated as 1000 charge cycle, when fully charged will supply 7 hours under water usage and standby for up to 3 month. charging is through a magnetic USB cable, simple connect to USB power supply (can be power bank) and the other end just simply snap on the dive com. I could not test until battery flat because we did only 6 dives, the dive com still remain 1 bar battery.

Do you consider such design as pro or con? it is arguable, since there is no battery to replace, you never have to worry about changing battery and risk of flooding. 7 hours battery life is good enough for 1 day of diving and just need to charge it over night and you are good to go for next day.  You don't need to open up plug nor screw nor opening any part of the dive com to do the charging, there is no risk of flooding, the only trouble is that you need to bring along a power bank to charge it overnight.

With spec of 1,000 charging cycle, if you charge 3 times a week every week, the dive com should be able to last for good 7 years.

Another strength of this dive come is the easy pairing with the IPhone Apps, after syncing with iPhone, it actually shows the dive depth profile.

Forget to mentioned, it also supports nitrox gas up to 40%.

Hm..  It does not show what gas you are on?  Maybe the next trip is to set a nitrox 21% and see if it shows anywhere in the screen.

I don't think it will show, it is up to you to set and O2 level, there is no such selection as air or Nitrox, you simply set the O2 level, and PPO2 is default at 1.4 not changeable, therefore the MOD will probably alarm if go too deep.  I will not want to test that limit.

Next time I will set O2 to other number and see whether will it show up on the dive come. but then my next trip is in 1 month's time, unless others can enlighten us.
