Any scuba diver worth their salt understands that a dive computer is one of the most essential pieces of gear they will own, but the fact of the matter is that the conventional wrist-worn dive computer can often be a hassle to constantly check and look at, which is precisely why Canadian company Shearwater came up with the 'NERD 2' HUD-equipped computer.
The 'NERD 2' is looking to revolutionize the game by offering a heads-up display that makes it possible for divers to look at all the information and metrics they need to whilst maintaining their posture. This dive computer uses a combination of a magnifying lens and Micro LCD display to ensure crystal-clear visibility underwater. However, the thoughtful design also features a simple, two-button interface that is seamless to operate and ensures that divers don't have to spend time fiddling about with their gadgets and taking away from their enjoyment of the ocean's wonders.
Available for a price of $2000, the 'NERD 2' is an excellent investment for scuba divers who want improved display capabilities and the convenience of an HUD display underwater.
