Hello, is this watch Mac-compatible? Also what is the main difference between this and the IQ-900?
Sorry, my above question got all garbled. Thanks Greg, but Im getting conflicting info from diff. experts. See Darricks answer in this link (bottom part of Q&A) regarding the IQ-900 being Mac-compatible. Im confused as to which ones correct. http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-17/009220/aeris-manta-air-nitrox-computer-dive-watch.html?question=3354#question3354
IQ-650 - TUSA Element Air
The Element is an easy-to-use, single button, puck-style computer offering a myriad of dive data details plus some new features including a Deep Stop function all in an affordable package. The Element is available in a wrist or console version.
Deep Stop Function
Several TUSA computers feature a deep stop function for additional safety. The deep stop mode is activated when a dive exceeds 80 FT (24M) for more than 1 second. Upon ascent, the computer will display a Deep Safety Stop screen and the recommended stop depth for a period of 2 minutes. This deep stop is highly recommended as additional opportunity to off-gas, but is not mandatory. If the diver chooses not to serve the stop it will not adversely affect the remaining No-Decompression Limits of the dive.
