NiTek Q


The NiTek Q gives you the freedom to choose the features you want. Available as a fully upgradeable, two-gas Nitrox computer, users have the ability to purchase additional features tailored to additional training and interests. Additional features include normoxic and hypoxic Trimix, a digital compass, custom gradient factors and CCR.

Housed in a mil-spec aluminum case with mineral glass viewing port and an easy to read yellow OLED display, the NiTek Q is a wrist-mounted computer that carries the tiniest of footprints, yet boldly displays dive data on a huge screen. A rechargable 3.7v lithium polymer battery is recharged using a standard mini-USB cable (provided), and can be recharged via wall outlet, desktop computer, or car charger. Intuitive, push button navigation thru options makes programming and diving the NiTek Q easy for divers of all levels.

Using the well established Buhlman ZHL-16 algorithm along with a [continued]

default gradient factor of 30/75, the NiTek Q has three pre-set GF settings to choose from that allow for deep stops or shallow stops.

Made in the USA.
