Shearwater Research has dominated the
technical diving industry with it's outstanding line of simple, yet
innovative dive computers. The owner of Shearwater Research, Bruce
Partridge, has worked in the computer programming industry since 1972.
In 2003, Bruce took his decades of experience ad knowledge and applied
them to his hobby of technical and rebreather diving. In 2005, with the
experience gained from the previous years of development, Bruce decided
to redesign from the ground up using the latest techniques and
components. And the Shearwater Pursuit was born - a solid, functional
design with a simple, easy to use control interface.
The Pursuit has
since been re-designed and re-born as the Predator with more improvements, such as an easy-to-read
OLED screen, and wireless bluetooth communication capabilities. The new Petrel offers the same features with an efficient LCD display ins a package that's 40% smaller. Shearwater's Heads-Up Display kit can be installed on any popular rebreather.
