Uemis unveiled a computer so sophisticated that the Swiss company dubbed it a Scuba Diver Assistant. The low-profile unit wraps snuggly around the wrist and features a large scratch-resistant color OLED display with easy-to-read dive data, including the air pressure in your tank as well as your buddy's safety relevant data providing your mate also uses a uemis ZURICH. The wrist unit activates automatically in the water and takes temperature and breathing as well as depth into account as it projects remaining bottom time, time remaining before entering deco, and deco stops and times.
