Questions and Answers for ScubaPro Meridian Black Tech Wrist Computer Watch:
This may be a stupid question, would this computer be suitable for trimix? It says you can dive to 120m with it but I dont see anything about trimix.
Bob (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com)
This is not a Trimix computer. Computers for Trimix are extremely specialized computers and will always be specified as such. Typically very few computers for recreational divers will be trimix computers.

SCUBA The Predictive Multi-Gas algorithm lets you enjoy the full benefits of carrying high oxygen concentration mixes (21%-100% O2 compatibility) in addition to your main breathing gas. Meridian calculates the decompression schedule for all possible gas combinations and in case you don't switch to the new mix, it adapts the calculation accordingly.
Complete Dive Planner calculates not only no-deco time but also total ascent rate, settings, workload, previous dives etc. and includes both gases if applicable. Meridian's algorithm ZH-L8 ADT MB reduces the formation of micro-bubbles, making diving safer. By choosing a MB level between L0 and L5, you adjust the algorithm conservativeness, allowing you to either take up less nitrogen or off-gas more quickly
The unique integrated Heart Rate Monitor senses your effort, incorporates it into the workload calculation and then adapts the decompression algorithm. The result is safer diving, because each diver is unique, because each dive location and situation is different.
PDIS optimizes your dive in complete security for a safer and more pleasurable adventure. The PDIS (Profile Dependent Intermediate Stops) option calculates an intermediate stop based on how much nitrogen uptake your body has endured, taking into account your current dive, previous dives and breathing mixes. PDIS is a unique scientific application for safer, more optimized decompression.
