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 !



Google Street View goes underwater!/ocean

Keep dry while being underwater. When they need help taking underwater pictures, just give me a SVII underwater camera and I’ll do the job !

Hopefully more people became aware of the sensitive underwater biosphere and the need of protection.


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.

Diving again

My last dive is still some time ago, but now with some diving enthusiastic friends we will visting Sipadan /Malaysia in August.

It’s one of the worldwide hottest diving spots. Only a hand full of divers are allowed to dive per day and the permission is best ordered before the holiday.

The best thing about diving are the possible tech stuff. Like the HUD diving mask including the dive computer.

The diving computer data will be displayed in the mask. These masks will be used by special navy forces. Oceanic offer the DataMask HUDfor around 1100 $.

After seen the video, the Oceanic  DataMask HUD is a really must have item. But I should check even for other possible masks with the same technology before ordering.
