VISTA, Calif., Jan. 5, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Aqua Lung, a leading global designer and manufacturer of dive and water sports equipment, today announced the lineup of its new line of dive instrumentation products. This new collection of dive computers and analog gauges has been engineered to provide reliable, sophisticated dive technology that is intuitive and easy-to-use.
"With our ongoing commitment to being the leading global provider of diving equipment, it was a natural decision to expand into instrumentation," said Don Rockwell, CEO of Aqua Lung International. "We look forward to serving the diving community by providing a range of high quality, innovative instruments that enhance their diving experience by bringing simplicity to the complex."
Backed by advanced design, engineering and manufacturing, Aqua Lung's new dive instrumentation line allows divers to safely and confidently descend into their dive adventure with thoughtfully designed features that harness the power of cutting-edge dive technology. With a wide range of functionality, from analog gauges to the top-of-the-line i750T dive computer, the Aqua Lung dive instrument collection serves a wide variety of divers' needs.
"In the same spirit that in 1943 inspired the father of all underwater breathing devices, the CG 43 regulator, Aqua Lung continues our mission to empower discovery for all divers," said Jeff Allsop, Global Dive Business Line Manager. "Our new collection makes simple what is complex and brings real and usable technology to all divers. As an example, we've engineered all of our computers to use standard batteries that can easily be replaced by the user."
The result is a line of dive computers with thoughtful features throughout that reflect a "complex made easy" approach that allows divers to focus on adventure rather than logistics. They are easy to read in any lighting condition and easy to use with simple, intuitive interfaces and navigation. The transmitter pairs for life and the equipment has user-changeable standard batteries. All of the new computers are compatible with DiverLog, the best in class digital log book & mobile app.
The entire line of computers will be introduced to consumers over the coming months with the launch of the first model, the i300, in January followed by the i450T.
