AERIS was introduced to divers worldwide in 1998. Our stated objective at that time was to raise the standard of features and technology available in diving computers. We did just that. We are now proud to offer a complete range of innovative and feature-rich SCUBA and snorkeling equipment. Our goals today are the same as in 1998; to raise the standard of products sold in the diving industry. Each one of our products represents an improvement in performance, aesthetics, function, or value. Try one for yourself; we’re confident you´ll agree.
AUP founder and CEO Bob Hollis took up scuba diving in the late 1950’s when recreational diving was still in its infancy. His love for diving soon led to a keen interest in underwater photography, a hobby that required him to create his own specialized equipment. With a degree in mechanical engineering, it was natural for Hollis to start designing and manufacturing underwater camera and strobe housings in the machine shop behind the Anchor Shack, the retail sporting goods store he’d opened in Hayward, California in 1965. Before long, divers and others were asking Hollis to make equipment for them, and a successful mail order business was begun.
In 1972, Hollis founded American Underwater Products, doing business as Oceanic. The company started out with a dozen diving products, including the Anchor Shack’s photo line. After four years, Hollis took a big leap forward when he acquired Farallon, a manufacturer in nearby Belmont. That acquisition instantly gave Oceanic a full line of diving equipment, with an innovative line of instrumentation products. “I saw digital instrumentation as the key to the future of diving,” explains Hollis. “Divers need to quickly and accurately calculate many variables, such as their depth, safe dive times, and decompression requirements to avoid the bends.” After the acquisition, Oceanic went to work researching and developing radically new instruments. In 1981, the company introduced the DataMax, the first mechanical depth gauge with automatic digital timer. The product was an instant hit and propelled Oceanic to the forefront of dive equipment suppliers.
In the early 1980s, Hollis helped introduce the concept of an electronic dive computer to the industry. These sophisticated instruments track, calculate, and display a wealth of critical information for divers, including dive time and depth, ascent rate, air consumption, nitrogen absorption, and other essential information needed to dive safely. The dive computer revolutionized diving safety and is considered a mandatory piece of equipment for all divers.
To build products that continue to revolutionize diving, Hollis has created several sister companies under the American Underwater Products family.
Aeris Scuba Gear Reviews
|Aeris Atmos AI Air / Nitrox Computer v.2 Reviews
Reviewer: Jane Carpenter on 4/10/2008great versatile dive computer! - this is a great computer: small, light-weight, palm-sized profile but with large easy to read display. i received it fedex the day i left for a dive trip and had to read the manual on the airplane no problem! simple to understand basic functions and menus. i ordered the quick-connect option which is not only handy for downloading to laptop, but also for stashing the computer in a carry-on bag. the downside is that the quick-connect is sold only with the compass i like to dive with my computer tucked in my bc and didnt want the extra bulk of the compass. fortunately our dive shop guy was able to remove the compass fairly easily (dont try it yourself unless you have special tools!) the...

|Aeris Manta Air / Nitrox Computer Watch Reviews
Reviewer: Michael E. on 11/23/2008Aeris Manta air/nitrox watch computer - I bought this because I wanted a dive computer that I could wear as a watch during dive vacations. The Manta is slightly larger than a regular watch, but still small enough to wear every day on a week long trip. I replaced the standard band with a velcro sport band. The standard band, with its extra length extender, adds potential failure points. It took a little while to get used to navigating through the screens and set up options, but once familiar, it was pretty easy going. INstructions were clear and easy to follow. I like how easy the unit is to read underwater and the integrated light, especially for night diving. I did get a low battery warning the second day I used... View Full Review

|Aeris Air Link Reviews
Reviewer: George M. on 5/6/2007Great way to eliminate a hose!! - When I got this piece of equipment I thought it would be cool to eliminate a hose. I just didn’t realize how cool it was going to be. I love the fact that I eliminated a hose, and just to make sure it worked properly my wife and I did an accent using the Aeris Air Link. We had no problems using the Air Link, I just gave her my reg, and I used the air link without any trouble. It also is the inflator, and deflator for my BCD I had no trouble here either. I would highly recommend this piece of equipment if you are looking to free up a little space, and have one less thing to worry about dragging on the bottom.
|Aeris 5 Oceans BioFlex BC Reviews
Reviewer: Robert L. on 7/11/2010Great Crossover BCD - The last BCD I owned was the Oceanic Excursion, which I loved. It was rock solid and had everything you could want in a BCD. Unfortunately, the airline lost that one and for my replacement I wanted something similarly functional but lighter. I do most of my diving in the Caribbean and wanted to shave a couple pounds off my luggage weight. According to what I read online, the 5 Oceans was the perfect fit for my needs. It is indeed light and functional. My only complaint is that there is no cummerbund. There is only a buckle around the waist and even when I tighten the buckle straps as far as they will go, I still cant get a snug fit. Im slender at 61" 170lbs, but Im not a rail by any means....
