Drake is a revolutionary diving computer that not only gives information about deep diving, but with its special four programs it can also assist the diver in dynamic breath hold diving, static breath hold diving and underwater fishing.
In fact, in its operating system the diver can choose between these four programs:
The PRO program is particularly suitable for diving purists and extreme divers.
It provides, among other information, the descent speed, ascent speed and total speed, duration of descent and ascent, “Time Ratio” between immersion time and the surface time (constantly updated), medium data and the useful function of Recommended Recovery Time for safety, set by the user for the prevention of Taravana.
The FREE program provides easy reading of and access to data. It is suitable for sea-running and underwater fishing and provides the necessary information on the most visible part of the display.
By limiting the accessory data that characterize the program, PRO helps the diver to focus on the more practical aspects of the discipline.
The DYNAMIC program is for those who are training or practice the discipline horizontally.
It has a special tank counter and has the ability to memorize training tables with times expressed in increments or decrements.
The STATIC program totally controls static breath hold diving, both for training and for performance.
- Four Functional Modes: STATIC, DYNAMIC, FREE and PRO
- 9 memories per mode to program 9 different alarm configurations. Complete alarm settings configuration: times, depths, the number of descents or pool series
- Acoustic and visual alarms, fully controllable
- REPS extension for STATIC and DINAMIC programs to create and store normal or incremental training tables
- Precision stopwatch with split time and lap time functions
- Salt water and fresh water settings
- The batter can be changed by the user
- LOG BOOK by session
- Three History functions containing static, dynamic and deep apnea logged data
- Ability to configure sampling time
- An exchange of the metric measuring unit (meters and °C) for the imperial system unit (ft- °F) can be done by the user
- PC/Mac interface with general information and dive profile (optional)
- BATTERY CHANGE IS AT USER’S DISCRETION: Changing the battery in the new Cressi Drake apnea computer is simple and can be done by the user. Remove the two screws fastening the reverse side cover, the feed system attached to the same cover comes out easily. It is recommended that the o-ring be changed with every battery change (CR2430). Battery kits and o-rings are available at all Cressi distributors.
- RECOMMENDED RECOVERY TIME: The Free and Pro modes offer a new and interesting function, important for the prevention of accidents and decompression sickness as well as for deep underwater fishing, called Recommended Recovery Time. Drake is able to calculate the surface rest time recommended before beginning another dive, taking into account the number of descents, depth, and apnea time, and allowing an alarm to be set that marks this time.
- 9 ALARM SETTINGS BY DISCIPLINE: In all apnea modes: Static, Dynamic, and Free and Pro modes the alarms are adjustable and offer 9 different configurations that allow multiple trainings to be completed and recorded. Among these alarms (audio and visual) the following are worth mentioning:
- Recommended recovery time alarms, according to dive times of descents made during the day
- Dive number alarms
- Dive time alarms
- Recovery time alarms
- Repetitive depth alarm (for example: every 5 meters)
- 3 determined depth alarms (example: 15 – 25 – 40 meters)
- PC or MAC CONNECTION: Additionally, a complete LogBook with modern management software for PC (Window/Mac) is included that will allow apnea logs to be extracted. Descent information can be reviewed in detail and dive graphics can be analyzed.
- Drake features an intelligent display that always shows the most important information from each mode in the center of the screen.
