I didn’t forget I owed you a video, to show you The Reef in action during one of the real-world tests. We have spent a couple of years to develop both the hardware and the software in-house. The software alone is written with hundreds of thousands of programming lines. It may sound complicated, and it is indeed technologically advanced, but the end result is the highest quality dive computer that is also one of the easiest to use on the market. It has a very friendly user interface and a LCD colour screen, so it’s easy to read even in dark and murky conditions underwater.
The numerous tests performed were no mean feat. There are many safety and security measures we put in place which you won’t know as a user. We did whatever it took to get them right. The Reef employs Bühlmann 16 algorithm. If you are not a diver, that means the most reliable model to use to avoid decompression sickness and hazard. There is also a system log on each instrument to record every single step a diver makes using The Reef, allowing us to see activities and run analysis.
Here’s quick video taken by one of our test divers along with some static shots:
