Shearwater Research Inc, the leading manufacturer of dive computers and electronic control systems for rebreathers has earned the reputation of listening to their customers. In keeping with this tradition, they are pleased to announce the next generation of their popular Petrel dive computer: the Petrel 2.
Smart Ready Bluetooth
The key new features of the Petrel 2 include Smart Ready Bluetooth, for communication with iOS devices such as the iPad and iPhone, and a three-axis, tilt-compensated, digital compass.
In addition to current Shearwater and third party support for Mac and PC desktop applications, users will now be able to download dives using their iPad/iPod in conjunction with third party applications. An application created by More Mobile is available now.
Using the most advanced compass technology, Shearwater offers a new level of convenience to Petrel 2 users as they no longer need to carry a separate compass while diving. The compass can be disabled for those who prefer not to use it.

Shearwater will be presenting the Petrel 2 at the DEMA Show in Las Vegas, Nevada (November 19-22) in booth #1139.
