New App and Waterproof Case Will Turn Your iPhone into a Dive Computer

I love scuba diving, and nothing is more enjoyable than discovering life and/or things in 60 to 120 feet of water. And I really love finding and trying out new scuba gear, especially gear that can be operated with one hand, (since that’s all I’ve got). So it should come as no surprise that when I discovered this new phone app and dive case, the ‘iGills SE-35′, I started foaming at the mouth. I’ve got to get my hand on one of these. My iPhone can now be part of my scuba gear. What all does it do and how much is it going to cost me?

In comparison to spending a bunch of money on bulky dive gear, this new iGills is great because a guy like me can operate it with one hand easily. Not only that, but you can save up to $1,700 with this app and phone case. The SE-35 will replace the dive computer, underwater still camera, video camera, digital compass, backup flashlight, depth alarm, altitude compensation calculator and most importantly, your dive log. It’s what I call one Smart Dive Computer.

The iGills SE-35′s integrated computer and sensors work with your iPhone to provide advanced dive computer functionality with an easy to use interface. Multiple diving modes including Air, Nitrox, and Gauge add to its versatility. iGills includes ascent rate indication, nitrogen loading tracking over multiple dives, low time and more. As you navigate to other screens to take pictures or video, the most relevant dive parameters like depth and time remaining go with you. All your critical information is always in main view.

So now my only issues are, do I sell my old dive gear in order to buy this new dive case? Or sweet talk my wife into the new gear? Either way I’ve got to get my hand on this iGills case so I can travel a lot smarter and lighter. One final question is, can I get phone service in 90 feet feet of water near the reef wall in Cozumel next month? If I do, I’ll call the radio station to request a song.

By the way the app is free and downloadable from iTunes, but the case will cost you $329.00 American. You can buy it at iGills online.

This is me  in Cozumel, notice my camera in hand, dive computer, gauges and compass on my left.
