Saguaro Scuba of Arizona proudly introduces the cutting-edge Descent Mk3 series dive computers and Descent T2 transceiver by Garmin. Anticipate an upcoming software update that will unlock the incredible potential of diver-to-diver underwater messaging through Garmin’s groundbreaking ‘SubWave’ sonar communications system.
Upon activation, divers in the Saguaro Scuba community can seamlessly exchange preset messages within a range of 30 meters. Additionally, they gain the ability to monitor a fellow diver’s depth and distance, triggered by Garmin’s new Diver Assistance alert. The Descent Mk3 series is available in two sizes – 43mm and 51mm – both featuring optional air integration capability. These dive computers boast a vibrant touchscreen AMOLED display, protected by a 200-meter depth-rated case with leakproof metal buttons, ensuring functionality even in extreme underwater conditions. With up to 48 hours of battery life in dive mode, these devices offer a robust and reliable companion for underwater exploration.
Dive enthusiasts can expect a host of innovative features, including multiple dive modes, DiveView maps, and a dive readiness score. The 51mm Descent Mk3i goes the extra mile with a built-in LED flashlight for enhanced visibility in low-light conditions. Dan Bartel, Garmin Vice President of Global Consumer Sales, emphasizes the significance of these advancements, stating, “From recreational to technical and every dive in between, the Descent Mk3 series and Descent T2 transceiver add innovative new features to help you explore deeper waters.”
