Wireless Air Integrated Technology

The first of it's kind, the Epic Wristwatch is a sophisticated Dive Computer featuring hoseless air integrated technology. A transmitter threaded into the first stage high-pressure port continuously sends cylinder pressure data to the wristwatch. Frequencies are individually coded to allow multiple divers to swim side by side without interference with other units, as well as allow advanced divers to monitor up to 3 independent cylinders. Because the transmitter and display module are independent and separately powered units, the receiver may also be easily used as a stand alone, non-air integrated dive computer.

Switch Between 3 Independent Transmitters

A transmitter threaded into the first stage high-pressure port continuously sends tank pressure data to the Epic mounted on your wrist. Frequencies are individually coded to allow multiple transmitter use or divers to swim side by side without interference with other units. Because the transmitter and Epic are independent and separately powered units, the Epic can be programmed and used as a stand alone, non-air integrated dive computer.

Advanced Wristwatch Functions

The Epic is an advanced digital wristwatch featuring a 1/100 second chronograph (stopwatch) with lap timer, 24 hour countdown timer, daily alarm, alternate time zone with date, 12/24 hour clock, and backlight.

Patented Air Time Remaining Algorithm<

You're at 80 feet with 1300 psi remaining in your cylinder - how long before you need to begin an ascent to a shallower depth? Our patented Air Time Remaining feature calculates your current depth, breathing rate, cylinder pressure, ascent time, and decompression status to tell you exactly how much time you can remain underwater.

Dive Time Remaining

Dive Time Remaining, like Air Time Remaining provides a 'real' number in minutes, considering Air Time Remaining, Nitrogen and Oxygen absorption, and automatically displays whichever allows less time.

Oversized Digits

Take the AERIS challenge: When shopping for a new dive computer, compare the displays. When it comes to viewing critical information, which would you rather see at 100 feet?

Audible Alarms with Flashing LED Warning Light

The Epic features a variety of system and user-customized audible alarms, alerting you to situations that pose a potential danger, or simply serve as a convenient reminder.

Audible Alarm Acknowledgement

Have you ever had difficulty hearing your computer's audible alarm? Perhaps that little beep signifying a potentially dangerous situation was timed perfectly with your exhaust bubbles rushing past your ears. Or maybe it seemed insignificant as that huge manta ray soared overhead. You won't miss the Epic's audible alarm. Once triggered, the alarm will sound continuously for 10 seconds. We know what you're thinking. "That's nice, I'll definitely hear the alarm, but isn't that going to annoy me and everyone else in the water?" We thought of that too. The alarm's job is to get your attention so that you look at the computer. Once it does that, simply press the button and it will stop.

Air, Nitrox or 100% Oxygen

The Epic acts simply as an 'Air' computer until you tell it otherwise, whether that is this weekend or 2 years down the road.

Switch between 3 Nitrox Mixes, to 100% Oxygen

As your training and experience grow, the Epic is designed to grow with you, being easily programmed for up to three individual gas mixtures containing from 21% to 100% oxygen.

AERIS Personal Dive Computer Algorithm

Decompression theory can be trusted only as far as it has been demonstrated by actual test dive data. In 1987 a unique series of experiments were conducted by Diving Science and Technology (DSAT). Commissioned by the Professional Association of Diving Instructors (PADI), these Doppler ultrasound monitored human experiments conducted by Dr. Michael Powell produced the most comprehensive data set that exists for recreational divers to this day. These data were used to validate the PADI Recreational Dive Planner and are the basis of the algorithm used in all AERIS Dive Computers.

Personal Conservative Factor Adjustment

When the Conservative Factor is set On, the no-decompression limit times are reduced to values equivalent to those that would be available at the next higher 3000 foot (915 meter) altitude.

"The Ultimate Adjustable Algorithm"

Our tissue loading bar graphs provide complete control of your margin of safety for each dive. Want to be a bit more cautious? Make it a personal rule to never enter into the caution zone; or stay one or more pixel away. Now you can even program several of our Dive Computers to do it for you with our patent pending Nitrogen Bar Graph Alarm; set it once and let the Epic alert you when your bar graph reaches that level.

No Deco Safety Stop Prompt with Adjustable Depth and Time

An audible and visual alarm remind you as you approach your programmed no decompression safety stop depth and an automatic timer counts down to zero. As in any other dive mode, you still have access to other pieces of information, and there is no penalty should you choose to disregard the safety stop.

FastSet User Interface

Speed through menu items and set modes easily and quickly with the FastSet Menu and intuitive button operation.

Date and Time Stamp

The Epic features time of day on the surface as well as underwater for quick reference. Time and date stamp also helps you to easily identify specific dives in Log Mode or PC download memory.

Alphanumeric Display

An alphanumeric "Message Box" is incorporated in the upper portion of the Epic display to provide text and numeric readouts in simple, unambiguous terms. Imagine beginning an ascent and as the ascent speed increases hearing a warning beep from the Epic as the message box alerts with the words "TOO FAST" while the red LED warning light flashes.

Automatic Altitude Compensation

The Epic automatically compensates for altitude dives up to 14,000 feet, giving adjusted no-decompression times and depths. The Epic even automatically recalibrates the depth display for freshwater instead of seawater above 2,000 feet.

Diver-Replaceable Batteries

The Epic Wristwatch and transmitters feature diver replaceable batteries. This can be a real trip-saver on board a live-aboard boat!

Battery Hot Swap

Should you be in a tight spot between dives, the "hot-swap" feature allows you to change batteries between dives while maintaining all calculations.

24-Hour Fly Countdown and Calculated Desaturation Time

The Epic features both a 24-hour countdown timer and calculated Desaturation Time, the theoretical time required to off-gas all residual nitrogen at sea level.

Depth-Dependent Ascent Rate

The Epic features a depth-dependant ascent rate, allowing increased rates at deeper depths and providing additional safety as you near the surface.

Backlighting

An intense bluish green light illuminates the entire dial of the watch evenly at the push of a button. The backlight may be activated either on the surface, or underwater and remains on for button depression time plus the duration that you choose for a maximum of 10 seconds.

24 Dive On-Unit Log Book

The Epic features on-unit data storage capacity for 24 dives. Date and time stamp makes locating and viewing a specific dive quick and easy.

History Mode

History Mode displays accumulative information for up to 9999 dives, 9999 dive hours and the maximum depth achieved. History information is maintained indefinitely, even if the battery is replaced.

ACI PC Download and Settings Upload Interface

The Epic's ACI PC Interface is an exquisitely detailed digital dive log. ACI allows you to easily transfer dive data from your Epic to your PC via a plug-in USB cable. Following download, your dive data is automatically formatted for easy viewing, sorting, analysis, and printing. Enter location, dive buddy and your notes and you've instantly created your own digital logbook.

In addition to detailed dive analysis, the Epic ACI PC Interface also allows you to quickly and easily set most of your user settings and options through your PC.

Gauge Mode

Divers using advanced breathing gas may utilize the Epic as an advanced air integrated digital depth gauge and bottom timer with detailed PC Interface.

Free Dive Mode

A dedicated Free Dive Mode provides unparalleled features including custom free diving specific alarms, 1 second sampling rate for PC download, and nitrogen tissue loading calculations.

Split Set Mode Access

To make easy work of customizing your Epic, our user settings and options are organized in one of four set modes. Set D (Dive Data) includes all Nitrox and user activated gauge mode settings. Set A (Alarms) allows you to activate and customize all audible alarms. Set U (Utilities) includes units of measurement, PC sampling rate, transmitter link codes, and conservative factor settings.

USER SETTINGS AND OPTIONS

Air, Nitrox or 100% O2

The Epic acts simply as an 'Air' computer until you tell it otherwise, whether that is this weekend or 2 years down the road. As your training and experience grow, the Epic is designed to grow with you, being easily programmed for up to 3 independent Nitrox mixtures from 21% to 100%.

FO2 50% Default On/Off

Following a Nitrox dive, many dive computers calculate your next dive based on a "worse-case scenario", mix of 50% Oxygen and 79% Nitrogen should you forget to reset your actual mix. With FO2 50% Default OFF, your mix remains at the original set point until you change it again.

Receiver ON/OFF

Since the only information sent by the wireless transmitter is cylinder pressure and transmitter battery status , the Epic is actually a fully-functional Personal Dive Computer without air integration features when the Receiver is set Off.

Digital Gauge Mode On/Off

Activate Digital Gauge Mode for freediving or dives conducted beyond the limits of the Air/Nitrox computer.

Audible Alarm and Flashing LED Warning Light On/Off

You may choose to deactivate all audible and LED alarms.

Maximum Depth Alarm

The Maximum Depth Alarm provides an audible warning upon reaching your planned maximum depth. This is an important safety feature for deeper dives or less experienced divers, and it comes in handy for rebreather diving where you can pre-set another level of safety.

Elapsed Dive Time Alarm

You're on a boat trip and the captain says, "Dive your own profiles, but be back in an hour - we're having lunch!" Just set your Epic to alert you when your elapsed dive time reaches one hour.

Nitrogen Tissue Loading Bar Graph Alarm

Our trademark nitrogen bar graph design provides the ultimate user-adjustable computer. Want to be a bit more cautious? Make it a personal rule to never enter into the caution zone, or stay one pixel away, or - you get the point. Now you can program the Epic to do it for you. Set it once and let your computer alert you when your bar graph reaches a pre-determined level.

Dive Time Remaining Alarm

Dive Time Remaining provides a 'real' number in minutes. This calculation considers both Nitrogen and Oxygen absorption, displaying whichever allows less time. With this unique Epic feature, you are able to program an audible alarm to alert you upon reaching a pre-set number in minutes.

Turn-Around Pressure Alarm

The 'Turn-Around' Pressure Alarm is a unique patent-pending feature that allows you to pre-program an audible reminder when you reach 1000 to 3000 psi in 250 psi increments. This helps ensure that you return to your exit point with plenty of air.

Ending Pressure Alarm

Air Time Remaining calculations are based on the 'Ending' Pressure Alarm. You define how much air you want in reserve upon reaching the surface.

Maximum PO2 Level Alarm (Nitrox)

When diving Nitrox, do you prefer your maximum PO2 exposure to be 1.2 ATA? 1.6 ATA? Depending on where you learned and your own personal comfort zone, the answer may be very different from diver to diver. The Epic lets you set your own limit. Program an audible alarm to sound at the level that you prefer.

Water Activation On/Off

The Epic automatically enters Dive Mode when the water contacts are wet, and the unit is submerged past 4 feet. To avoid this when swimming or enjoying other water sports, simply set Water Activation Off.

Units of Measurement

Choose between Metric and Imperial settings for date, temperature, depth and pressure.

Automatic Safety Stop Prompt with Adjustable Depth and Time

Set the Automatic Safety Stop Prompt On or Off. Set the Stop Depth to 10, 15 or 20 feet and the Stop Time to 3 or 5 minutes.

Personal Conservative Factor

Set the Conservative Factor On to further reduce your exposure to decompression sickness.

Backlight Duration

Would you like the backlight to shut off as soon as you release the button? Would you rather it remain on for 0, 5, or 10 seconds? We don't need to make these decisions for you; it's your choice.

PC Interface Sampling Rate

You have the option to choose at which rate (timed or depth transition) the Epic samples and stores data for later download to your PC. More frequent sampling will provide extreme detail of your dive profiles with limited storage capacity. Less frequent sampling, while it provides less detail, can store up to 150 dives.

Multiple Transmitter Link Code

The Epic wireless transmitter sends an encoded serial number, so that multiple units may be used side-by-side without interference. Each Epic may be programmed to link with up to 3 independent transmitters.
