Every dive, and every diver, is unique. That’s why a “personal” dive computer needs to be just that — personal. Not a one-size-fits-all instrument that delivers the same basic computations regardless of whether it’s being used by a 25-year-old dive instructor or a 55-year-old novice diver carrying a couple extra pounds around the waist.
Human Factor Diving™ is an exclusive SCUBAPRO approach to equipment design that combines Human Factors & Ergonomics (an engineering doctrine that focuses on the interaction between products and the people who use them), Biometrics (the science of measuring and analyzing a person’s biological data), and Wearable Technology (gear designed to be worn on the body) to create high-tech scuba diving products that are compact, easy to use and, MOST importantly, provide detailed “real-time” self-tracking reports on how your body is functioning, both on the surface and at depth, so you can get the most out of your body, out of your dive, and out of your life.
There’s no better example of this blend of high-tech form and function than the MANTIS. Offering a totally customized wristwatch-style dive computing system that’s super easy to use, theMANTIS features a visually pleasing display screen, an intuitive menu and a simple circular navigation system, making it one of the most user-friendly dive computers on the market.
But what makes the MANTIS truly unique is its ability to provide you with personalized data through the use of biometrics. This allows you to maximize your body’s operational efficiency; it lets you know when you’re over-exerting or under-exerting, and it alerts you to potential problems before they escalate into major events. In short, this type of self-tracking helps increase diving performance and decrease injury, and that boosts confidence.
