Finally the Scubapro Mantis 2 (M2) Dive Computer is here! After seeing the prototype in Germany last autumn we have been itching to get some in to the shop into the dive shop in Chiswick! Not only is the M2 a lovely watch style dive computer that you would be proud to wear on your wrist every day it has the most features of any dive computer on the market right now. From an active swim mode that will measure your lengths in the swimming pool right through to a CCR mode that any rebreather diver would be proud as a back up CCR dive computer.
Scubapro have also tried to differentiate themselves in the dive computer market by using their 'Human Factors Diving', and the M2 is the newest in the product line. So put simply the M2 Dive Computer not only calculates bottom time but it does so by taking your own medical conditions into consideration. So if you are a 25 year old triathlete you will get a different NDL time than if you were of a different build and inclination. Which seems like such an obvious idea given that it should be different without sounding prejudice!
The Mantis 2 has incredibly intuitive topside and underwater functions, including air integration and electronic navigation, plus it incorporates cutting-edge biometrics to let you live life in dive mode.
With the addition of the heart-rate monitor, Scubapro is pioneering an entirely new way to dive with a computer. The monitor takes into account how hard you are exerting yourself on a dive, and then the computer adjusts your bottom time based on the information it receives.
The Mantis 2 contains brilliant new features not included in it's predecessor, the Mantis. The M2 offers air integration, making it easy to see all of your dive information at a glance and eliminating the need for any gauges other than a small back up. Another feature included in the M2 is the digital compass. Navigation, air, depth and remaining time all in one place and available at a glance.
