Do you sell the replacement band for this computer? If so what is the # and cost to order? Thank you
How does the Galileo read your hart rate and will it adjust your dive limets according to your hart rate?
Hello Joe, you wear this around your chest: http://www.scuba.com/images/computers/009341_polarbelt.jpg. That is what monitors your heart rate. Also yes it will take this information and calculate it into your dive profile. If you would like to place an order or have any other questions please feel free to give us a call at 1.800.347.2822.
Can I use this compass in the the southern hemisphere
According to their manual: Depending on the exact location on the planet, there can be a deviation between true North and magnetic North. Any compass will always show magnetic North, so via this menu you can set a value for the so called declination that will make the compass show true North instead.
Do you have the transmitter battery kit (battery + oring) for replacement? And the hard plastic cover for the LCD? If so, can you please send me the links for both? Thanks
Battery Kit http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-67/008226/Uwatec-by-ScubaPro-Battery-Kit-for-Galileo-Sol---Galileo-Luna-Smart-Transmitters.html Do not carry the gauge guards.
I need advice re the digital compass feature. I have seen 3D, full tilt, tilt compensated, course memory, etc. What are the important features that I should look for in this feature? Thanks. Ed
Trying to decide between the Galileo Luna and the Mares Nemo Wide. Any information that might help my decision? Reliability of one brand vs. another? Thank you.
Hello Kim, if you are looking for an all-in-one computer? Then your choice would be the Luna. If you went with the Nemo Wide does not monitor your air pressure. The Luna has a wireless transmitter that you connect to your 1st stage. So you can see how much air you have left. You would need a pressure gauge if you dive with the Nemo Wide.
Thanks for your quick response to my computer question. Also looking at BCs. Scubapro GlideX and Travel Go. Does a travel bc "ride" any differently in the water? Any difference in buoyancy control from a regular bc? Trying to make informed decision. Appreciate your help.
How many transmitters can this monitor?, I want a computer that can manage more than one transmitter so I can monitor my son when diving. Thanks
I reviewed the manual, but Id like to confirm. This allows 3 transmitters and a buddy monitoring (fourth) transmitter? And if so, when youre viewing your buddys transmitter, am I correct in assuming that it continues to calculate your N2/O2 loading in your current tank configuration?
My boyfriend dives but I dont. I recently found out that his computer dive no longer works. I heard him mentioned before that he only trust ScubaPro so Im trying to get him a bday present but not sure which one I should go for ScubaPro Meridian Black Tech Wrist Computer Watch or ScubaPro Uwatec Galileo Luna Air / Nitrox Hoseless Computer with Digital Compass. He does mostly shore diving in the Philippines, Mexico, and Belize. Hes been diving since he was like 13. Id like to find out which one is best for him.
Hello Amor, if you are also looking for a day to day watch he can wear I would suggest the: http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-17/009390/ScubaPro-Meridian-Air---Nitrox-Wrist-Computer.html but you would still need an analog pressure gauge to tell him how much air pressure he has left. Or you can go with the: http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-17/009343/ScubaPro-Uwatec-Galileo-Luna-Air---Nitrox-Hoseless-Computer-with-Digital-Compass.html and that would tell him all the information he would need while underwater to include the air pressure.
Galileo LUNA is everything you need for an extrodinary underwater experience. And if you want more, two additional features can be added as optional upgrades later (Heart Rate Monitor and Predictive Multi-Gas).
Hoseless gas integration.
Navigational system with digital compass.
Extra large dot-matrix screen available in 3 display modes.
PDIS (Profile Dependent Intermediate Stops) optimizes your dive in complete security.
Clear text, multi-language alarms.
Graphic data display.
Galileo's memory chip can hold over 100 hours of dive profile data and 100 bitmap images as a wreck map the diver can use to orient himself.
User changeable battery & depth rating
An exclusive UWATEC achievement: the option to update Galileo's firmware through the infrared interface. You can download upgrade packages over the Internet to get new features and new languages.
The Apnea update is available for download at no cost.
LUNA can be upgraded with 2 additional features-available as optional purchases at your Authorized SCUBAPRO UWATEC dealer.
Predictive Multi-Gas upgrade: Purchasing this PMG feature at a later time, or whenever you need it, allows LUNA to use up to 3 Nitrox mixes (21-100% O2) during the dive, calculating the ascent schedule for all possible combinations of the programmed mixes. The outcome of the different decompression calculations can be shown on the screen in a dedicated deco summary screen.
Heart Rate Monitor upgrade: Galileo's heart rate monitor, jointly developed with Polar (world leader in the field of heart rate monitors), not only measures and records the heartbeat during the dive but allows the dive computer to factor the intensity of the exercise into the decompression calculation, as it is reported by the diver's physiology. The HRM is also ideal for Apnea divers, measuring heart rate and sounding an alarm if the heart rate drops below the set level.
