Dive Warnings

WARNING
  • The diving features of this device are for use by certified divers only. This device should not be used as a sole dive computer. Failure to input the appropriate dive-related information into the device can lead to serious personal injury or death.

  • Make sure that you fully understand the use, displays, and limitations of your device. If you have questions about this manual or the device, always resolve any discrepancies or confusion before diving with the device. Always remember that you are responsible for your own safety.

  • There is always a risk of decompression sickness (DCS) for any dive profile even if you follow the dive plan provided by the dive tables or a diving device. No procedure, diving device, or dive table will eliminate the possibility of DCS or oxygen toxicity. An individual's physiological make up can vary from day to day. This device cannot account for these variations. You are strongly advised to remain well within the limits provided by this device to minimize the risk of DCS. You should consult a physician regarding your fitness before diving.

  • The dive computer can calculate your surface air consumption rate (SAC) and air time remaining (ATR). These calculations are an estimate and should not be relied on as the only source of information.

  • Always use backup instruments, including a depth gauge, submersible pressure gauge, and timer or watch. You should have access to decompression tables when diving with this device.

  • Perform pre-dive safety checks, such as checking proper device function and settings, display function, battery level, tank pressure, and bubble checks to check hoses for leaks.

  • If a tank pressure warning or battery warning appears on the dive computer, terminate the dive immediately and safely return to the surface. Disregarding the alarm may result in serious injury or death.

  • This device should not be shared between multiple users for diving purposes. Diver profiles are user specific, and using another diver's profile can result in misleading information that could lead to injury or death.

  • For safety reasons, you should never dive alone. Dive with a designated buddy. You should also stay with others for an extended time after a dive, because the potential onset of decompression sickness (DCS) may be delayed or triggered by surface activities.

  • This device is not intended for commercial or professional dive activities. It is for recreational purposes only. Commercial or professional dive activities can expose the user to extreme depths or conditions that increase the risk of DCS.

  • Do not dive with a gas if you have not personally verified its contents and input the analyzed value to the device. Failure to verify tank contents and input the appropriate gas values to the device will result in incorrect dive planning information and could result in serious injury or death.

  • Diving with more than one gas mixture presents a much greater risk than diving with a single gas mixture. Mistakes related to the use of multiple gas mixtures may lead to serious injury or death.

  • The transmitter is not an oxygen cleaned product. Do not use the transmitter with anything greater than 40% oxygen.

  • Always ensure a safe ascent. A rapid ascent increases the risk of DCS.

  • Disabling the deco lockout feature on the device can result in an increased risk of DCS, which can result in personal injury or death. Disable this feature at your own risk.

  • Violating a required decompression stop may result in serious injury or death. Never ascend above the displayed decompression stop depth.

  • Always perform a safety stop between 3 and 5 meters (9.8 and 16.4 feet) for 3 minutes, even if no decompression stop is required.
