Scubapro are pulling out all the stops with their latest G2 Dive Computer with a long list of hardware, technologies and features that really make the G2 stand out from the crowd. The G2 is based around many of the technologies and features found in the Galileo range so any divers upgrading from a Galileo Luna or Sol will immediately feel at home using it but it also had some big upgrades.
The Scubapro G2 is a full on dive computer that could easily take a diver from their first dive all the way up to CCR rebreathers. It supports air, nitrox and trimix dives with up to eight gas mixes as well as providing gauge and freediving modes. Decompression is based on the ZHL-16 ADT MB PMG algorithm that tracks 16 tissues for very accurate decompression calculation but, like the Galileos before it, the G2 can also take into account your workload by monitoring your breathing rate, heart rate and skin temperature to achieve a personalised dive profile. This is done using the optional wireless transmitter and Heart Rate Monitor (HRM) belt.
One of the biggest upgrades is the new full colour TFT screen that sports a 320x240 resolution for a really crisp and clear display. The colour theme can be customised by switching between four colour scheme and four different layout templates. The colour of the different elements of the dive screen will change colour as the computer needs to alert you to important information. The screen orientation can also be rotated by 180 degrees, allowing the buttons to be placed at the top or bottom depending on your preference. The high resolution colour is perfect for the digital compass, making navigation clear and precise.
The G2 can connect with up to 11 transmitters when all the different features are fully enabled and of course it connects to the HRM belt but it also features Bluetooth 4.x LE that allows it to connect directly with smart devices that are running the Scubapro LogTRAK app on either Android or iOS. The app allows dive profiles to be downloaded, dive logs recorded and shared before you have even left the dive site. If you prefer a desktop or laptop connection you can still do that to. If you aren't going to do that for a while, if you are on a long excursion in a remote location for instance, you don't need to worry as the G2 has enough memory to store 1000 hours of dive profile data.
The G2 is powered by a 3.7v 840 mAh rechargeable Lithium-ion battery that Scubapro say will provide enough juice for approximately 50 hours of dive time with a 2 to 3 hour recharge time. That's is a lot of diving without having to worry about finding a power source. Battery status and alerts are provided on the screen for quick reference.
