The sealed battery makes me wonder how well the battery will hold up after a year or two of regular diving though. Owners of smartphones with sealed batteries will probably have experienced the difference between a new phone's battery life vs after a year or two of use.

Would be good to hear back from owners of this computer after a period of regular use to see if the battery still lasts an entire diving day

When not in diving mode, the battery is able to hold for 3 months out of water, therefore if one go diving average once a month, you might not be able to test how good/bad it will be after few years. this is unlike phones, we charge it almost every day, that translate to 365 charges per year. As for this dive com, you only charge it on your diving days, so how many diving days one do in a year for leisure divers?  Even for people who are in diving business, how many diving days one do in a year?

I am not selling this dive com, just share my opinion here.

True, I guess the relative lack of opportunity to go diving very often would extend out the useful lifespan of the sealed battery.

Cool! So what are the test cases?

1. Set O2% to 21% to see where it shows the gas mix
2. Determine if PPO2 limits can be changed --> will set to 40% O2 during a deep dive
3. Max number of dives on 1 charge
4. Max dive time on 1 charge
5. Compare NDL with uwatec/galileo/suunto mostiko

Anymore?

which is actually a good thing to me. see too many divers changing such settings without knowing what they're doing.

"oh, set to 1.6 can dive deeper ah? OK!"

Stress it and give us a good test result.

BTW: there is no air nor Nitrox setting, you simply set the O2 mix in this computer. as you can see from my previous pic as compare to OSTC, the NDL of DeepBlu is longer than OSTC.
