The AERIS A SERIES line of dive computers is poised to set a new design standard. The A100 is a sophisticated yet basic dive computer in a small, ergonomic wrist or console unit; packed with essential out-of-the-box features. The A100 is ideally suited for someone who is new, dives infrequently, or just wants to get in the water and not looking to push buttons.
The A100 boasts a high resolution Tissue Loading bar graph which allows for at-a-glance feedback that lets you control your dive on the fly and regulate your dynamic conservative factor. The bright Green/Yellow/Red indicators make it easy to monitor your dive. It displays only essential information during the dive in large easy-to-read digits so you know how deep you are and how long you can stay there. The A100 is complete with other useful features like an automatic safety stop countdown timer and simple one button interface to provide smooth navigation through the menu.

Dual Algorithm Technology
Choose the one dive computer that’s liberal, conservative or middle-of-the-road.
Dual Algorithm™ technology lets you choose the decompression algorithm that best suits your diving needs without compromising safety.
Wireless Air Integration
Our Sophisticated Personal Dive Computers feature Wireless Air Integration technology. A transmitter threaded into the first stage high-pressure port continuously sends cylinder pressure data to the dive computer. Frequencies are individually coded to allow multiple divers to swim side by side without interference with other units. Because the transmitter and display module are independent and separately powered units, the dive computer may also be easily used as a stand alone, non-air integrated dive computer.
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.
Download and Settings Upload Interface
The PC Interface is an exquisitely detailed digital dive log. It allows you to easily transfer dive data from your Dive Computer 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 dive computer PC Interface also allows you to quickly and easily set most of your user settings and options through your PC.
Automatic Altitude Compensation
Selected Personal Dive Computers automatically compensate for altitude dives up to 14,000 feet, giving adjusted no-decompression times and depths. Our Dive Computers even automatically recalibrates the depth displays for freshwater instead of seawater above 2,000 feet.
