Doch nicht zum tauchen geeignet – Apple watch series 2

Eigentlich dachte ich gestern Abend noch,  bis 50m das reicht mir beim tauchen, aber daraus wird nichts !

„Apple Watch Series 2 has a water resistance rating of 50 meters under ISO standard 22810:2010. This means that it may be used for shallow-water activities like swimming in a pool or ocean. However, Apple Watch Series 2 should not be used for scuba diving, waterskiing, or other activities involving high-velocity water or submersion below shallow depth.

Apple Watch Series 2 is Fine for Swimming, but Scuba Diving and Waterskiing Not Recommended“

Also brauche ich mir auch keine Gedanken über die Verbindung zum Flaschensensor machen.

Congratulations – 65 years Mares scuba equipment

I own and use Fins, Mask, Wetsuit, Regulator, Octupus, 1 stage and a few other things from Mares for fun diving and been satisfied.

For advanced dives I use a few different items like Waterproof Dry-Suit and so on.

Keep it up -Mares !

DiveDuino – DIY dive computer

“ What is DiveDuino?

Right now Diveduino will not replace your dive computer, but it can log your depth and temperature during your dive, saving it to a MicroSd Card in a TEXT file format so you can import it to excel and do your fancy dive profile graphics, no need of special $100 USD cables that all the diving equipment manufacturing companies sell. Plus it has a display for that information with a actual graph of your dive profile.How it came to my mind?

DiveDuino came to my mind since I am an active diver and I enjoy the sport. I am an electrical engineer and at work I came across with the Arduino platform. Dive computers are expensive, if you want all the fancy features, you can find some computers for about $150 USD and others for about $1500 USD. Every basic dive computer has this indicators: No Decompression Limit(NDL), depth, temperature and elapsed time. So why not create something with the help of the Arduino open source platform, I found a sensor that could interact with Arduino and the rest is the prototype that I am building.“

Warum wir nicht mit einer Sauerstoffflasche tauchen !

Wenn ich für jedes Mal wenn ich Sauerstoffflasche höre einen Cent bekommen würde, …

Warum ist es für einige Mittaucher so schwer Sauerstoff und Luft umgangssprachlich auseinander zu halten ?

Die meisten wissen zum Glück das tauchen mit reinem Sauerstoff keine gute Idee wäre, aber sagen trotzdem Sauerstoffflasche – arrgh !

Im englischen ist es etwas klarer da heißt es einfach gas tank und mit gas ist halt das Atemgasgemisch gemeint. Wie wir alle wissen besteht die Luft die wir alle atmen aus 76% Stickstoff, 21% Sauerstoff und der Rest aus Edel- und Spurengasen.

Also ist zwischen Sauerstoff zu 100% und als Gemisch mit 21% doch ein kleiner aber signifikanter Unterschied !

 

Magnetic deviation – compass and diving

Magnetic deviation is the error induced in a compass by local magnetic fields, which must be allowed for, along with magnetic declination, if accurate bearings are to be calculated.

So it’s a good idea to hold the compass and the torch in different hands !

Advanced Open Water Diver

Since last weekend I’m certified Advanced Open Water Diver and on Friday my Brevet card arived. The next steps shoud bring me further to Tec Diving, I’m really interested in Cave and Wrek Diving.

Open Water Diver – PADI

Since it was  some time ago that I finished my diver course by DIWA (Diving Instructor World Association), it was a good choice doing the Open Water Diver course by PADI (Professional Association of Diving Instructors).

It was really fun and I decided to do the Peak Performance Buoyancy course directly thereafter.
