We are working on a new family of dive computers. The NiTek Q is the first recreationally focused computer that incorporates an OLED display, previously reserved for high-end technical diving. Out of the box, it is configured as a two gas Nitrox computer that is user-upgradeable to incorporate a compass, Trimix or rebreather capabilities. You choose what you features you want or need. Charged via a standard USB the internal battery provides power for up to 20 hours of operation with a standby life of six months.
We are currently performing cold water tests at the factory. We fell a bit behind schedule after DEMA when we learned that the compass chip we had planned to use was discontinued. Not wanting to launch a product that would have an obsolete part, we’ve taken the time to source another model. The developers are now integrating it into the boards.
I have been diving one of the prototypes and like the size and sharp OLED display. I shot this video on a recent dive. NiTek Q Video
