Cool watch, great dive toy.

Nifty little toy. I used it on a full charge and it sat through 10 dives with 30% battery left to talk about with the watch running its compass about half the time. The cradle is a small issue to bring about. Nice graph to check out diving profile and quite conservative about safety stops.

Great BUT...

I have owned this for just over 3 years. When it is working properly it is fantastic and I love it. I have had a few issues, first the compass did not work properly. Second It automatically rebooted to factory settings every time i charged it and lastly a week ago on my 14th of 16 dives in Cozumel it failed completely.Battery would no longer hold a charge and the watch went blank.. I'm told it needs a new lithium ion battery which is a problem in itself. There is only 1 Service centre in Nort...

Nice but...

By

from Delmar, NY, US

I've owned this watch/computer for 2-1/2 years and have used it on 18 dives, all in the Caribbean. The computer systems are great and the dive profile is a nice touch. Bottom line is that I'm glad I purchased it for the price I got - about 50% of list. I also have a Mares Puck pro that I also like very much. IF you don't need a "dive watch" to wear on land, and you do not care about the dive profile graph, the Puck Pro is a much better value. Two key issues are 1) rechargeable battery and 2) pitch of alarm. The battery must be recharged every other week. If you are using this as a watch, then no big deal. If this is diving equipment that gets brought out when time to go diving, then this can be a big issue. Mares themselves state that letting the battery deeply discharge will reduce its life and I have seen other reviews that indicate functionality can suffer. As for the alarm, it is at a frequency I cannot hear. I am 54 and my hearing has decreased in the upper registers, typical of aging. The first Matrix I purchased went back to Mares for warranty replacement as I thought the alarm was not working. Others in my age group had difficulties hearing it too.

I'm told it needs a new lithium ion battery which is a problem in itself. There is only 1 Service centre in North America I'm told so it needs to be shipped to Florida so they can replace the battery because it needs to be soldered in..In this day and age that's just crazy. Mares Customer service is among the worst in the world. If youve ever been on their website to trouble shoot something you will know what I mean..

Great computer for a great price

By

I did quite a bit of research before buying, as I wanted a dive computer with multiple functions. This Matrix is the bomb. With 4 buttons, it's easy to access all the functions and menu's. Integrated compass works well in both surface and dive mode. I have used this in salt/caribbean diving so far. Great visibility underwater. Cool dive data and graph after surfacing. Rechargeable with good battery life. And the best part is the software, which you can use as a dive log and download details from the computer. The software shows times in/out, temperatures, depths and times, nodeco times, N loading, and provides graphs for many of these data types. Very cool. Also you can log your pre-computer dives to make a complete dive log. It includes details for equipment, locations, buddies, and plenty of details. So far I'm thrilled with the purchase of this computer. The only thing I would like to see is an option to keep the backlight on longer. During my night dive, the light would go off too quickly to use the compass effectively at night.

JENNIFER T  this is not an integrated computer so it cannot measure your tank psi.

JENNIFER T  The actual illuminated area is a little more than an inch wide. The total watch face isabout 1 3/4 inches total. A little smaller than most computer displays. I like the fact that I can wear this as an actual working watch while on vacation.
