Mares, is taking another step into the future with the Matrix Dive Computer. A full-dot matrix high resolution display, tilt- compensated digital compass with bearing function, graphic profile during the dive and multi-gas algorithm make Matrix arguably the most impressive Mares watch-style dive computer ever. A choice of digital or analog time of day display, second time zone and a precision stopwatch, all in a sleek metal housing make it the coolest product to show off with in between dives. Did we mention a 36-hour logbook including dive profile graphs at 5 second sampling rate. The rechargeable battery means years and years of maintenance free use. The charging cradle doubles up as PC (or Mac) interface for downloading dives and for firmware upgrades.
The Matrix has a gas switching function. This function allows divers to use up to three different gas mixtures during a single dive. The computer calculates the decompression schedule accordingly, so that you can take full advantage of decompressing with high oxygen concentration mixes. Smart, intuitive and easy to use, the dive computer software is upgradeable. As Mares continues to introduce new features and functions to its computers, you can benefit from these improvements without needing to buy a new product: simply download the new software release from the Mares website and install it into your existing computer using the dedicated interface.
The Matrix Dive Computer Decompression model is the RGBM (Reduced Gradient Bubbles Model) Mares-Wienke 10 tissue model. Computer has a maximum depth display of 492' (150 meters) and is altitude adjustable to 12,100' (3,700 meters). The computer can be use in 4 different modes. On the surface, it has a watch mode. When diving, it can be used in air, nitrox or gauge modes. The rechargeable lithium-ion polymer user replaceable battery will give approximately 10 hours of dive time per charge and has a life expectancy of 500 charge cycles. Computer can be set for use in either fresh or salt water for more accurate calculations. Matrix has audible alarms that can be set for imperial or metric measurements, stopwatch function, daily alarms, a dive plan mode, and ascent rate indicators both graphic and digital.
Computer has a mineral glass face, will show the environments temperature, 12/24-hour clock.
