About Mares Puck Air

Sleek, reliable, ergonomic, and easy to use
The sporty and functional design includes all the information that enthusiasts can't do without. With Puck Air as your guide, you'll always know what to do. In particular, with the Easy Access System, navigating the computer menu has never seemed so easy!

Puck Air Computer uses Mares-Wienke RGBM (Reduced Gradient Bubbles Model) algorithm. The RGBM takes into account the phenomenon of micro-bubbles in order to prevent their formation. In over 10,000 real dives monitored by Dr. Bruce Wienke in the Los Alamos laboratories, the formation of micro-bubbles has been studied and evaluated in order to better understand the mechanism behind how micro-bubbles are formed during a dive. Today it is the most evolved algorithm for reducing the formation of micro-bubbles without compromising dive times.

Air Integrated computerized monitoring of tank pressure is used to determine a bottom time which depends not only on your depth, but also on your actual gas consumption, increasing your dive safety. In addition, the gas consumption (referred to the surface) is displayed on the computer for more control over your dive. The computer does this by sampling the pressure drop over time and giving you the rate of consumption in minutes remaining. If the time remaining is greater than the no-decompression limit for your depth it will display the shorter time allowed.

The easy excess push buttons allow the diver to operate the computer in all conditions, even when wearing thick gloves. Navigating through the computer programs is extremely simple and very intuitive. There are three special function modes of Air, Nitrox and Bottom Time. The Puck Air has a maximum depth display of 492' (150 meter), a memory capacity of 36 hours, runs on a user replaceable 3 Volt CR2450 lithium battery, power indicator, back lighting for low light conditions, has a plan mode display, can be used in both imperial or metric units, fresh or seawater settings, residual nitrogen reset, option to exclude audible alarms and uncontrolled ascents", has an ascent rate indicators and is altitude adjustable. The Puck Air also has a watch, date and temperature functions. The Puck has an optional USB interface for logging dives on your PC, SKU: MRSPCNMW PC Interface.

The Puck knows that not all of us who dive are young and in peak condition, it address this with precautionary program settings that allow individual adjustment to more conservative dive profiles if needed. When you do multi-level, multiple dives during a single day or multiple dives over several days you can choose different setting levels in order to adjust your computer to a more conservative dive.

The Puck Air has superior display readability. In order to offer an easy-to-read display Mares produced a wide computer display, with intense backlighting and high contrast. The computer featuring illuminated, oversized digits. Special attention is paid to maximize the viewing angle, to eliminate angular distortion and to always grant the best readability. Puck Air comes with a User Manual and has a 24 month limited warranty.

Can not download dives into home compute

When i purchased this computer it was a replacement for my original Puck non air. I also purchased the Drak computer interface. i only found out later there is no program that allows you to download your dives for log book purposes. I am now losing dive logs since I reached the storage capacity.

Good Solid Value

By

I bought this console computer to replace my SPG which is a back up to my wrist based D9 computer w/ hoseless transmitter. I have found the hoseless devices work great most of the time but occasionally fail (largely due to human error – my error that is). You can forget to pair it up or you get separated from your tank while on the boat and it fails. Also I don't completely trust non-"hard wired" devices hence the need for a backup. My SPG has been a little shaky lately so I decided to replace it. I ran across this computer which is roughly the same size as the SPG and not much more expensive so I bought it. I have to say that the one button operation is extremely easy and intuitive to use, the readout underwater is superb, and the computer is feature rich. This would really be all you would need in terms of a dive computer. In addition to the dive features, it also contains a planner and a logbook. This set-up is ideal for recreational divers who own their own regulators. I wish they made a hoseless transmitter for their wrist based computers which are essentially the same (from the computing perspective) as this one – I might consider ditching my high end watch for it. A couple of minor gripes – when out of the water after a dive– condensation between the screen and the screen guard can be visible and the backlight is a little weak. Overall though this is a terrific product at a great price.

Decent little budget starter computer

By

Good starter air-integrated computer for someone with an eye on their budget. It does everything most recreational divers need. The one button interface can get a little tiresome when making adjustments to the settings, but in the water it's simple enough to use. Backlight is a little weak in all but the darkest conditions. Those who continue to progress will probably want to upgrade eventually, but still a good value for the price.

Works fine, but had info in the logbook

By

Mares Puck Air is easy to use and has all the necessary functions. The think I've noticed is that if my air drops below the Low value (725 psi) the safety stop function wont kick in. It doesn't say that in the manual, so first time it happened I thought I hadn't set it right. Following times I just keep track of my safety stop time with a watch. Maybe they will change this with a firmware update, who knows. Also, I bought it new, but it has to dives recorded in the logbook and I can't figure out how to erase them from the computer itself.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
DARREN R  does everything I need right now at an excellent price point for air integrated systems
ANDREAS M  Price and Reviews
TIM M  As an enrty level computer. Worked great once you figured out how to use the very very simple user interface. Could use a other button or two, but did the trick at a great price.
Shopper  my puck air computer stops reading pressure. wat to do so it starts reading pressure agian???
JONATHAN L  It's not clear what you mean. I would call Mares.
SUSAN B  I dont know. I havent had that problem. Sorry I couldnt help.
RICHARD M  I'm certainly not an authority on diving safety, but if my computer stopped reading pressure I would terminate the dive and evaluate the problem on the surface. I would make sure the problem was resolved before using the computer again. An air integrated computer that intermittently loses pressure readings is dangerous and useless. Return it to the factory for service before it costs you your life.
ROBERT N  The problem may be in the pressure sensor. I've had that problem with another dive computer (Suunto) and the only thing the factory service technician could do is offer to replace the entire computer.
Shopper  Is there a compass on the back side of the computer?
JOHNIE J  No there is no compass on the back side of the computer. There is a model that has a compass that is on the end of the puck. You can see it on Mare's website (mares dot com), click on computers, you'll find it listed as "Puck Air w/Compass: code 414162". Shop around to get prices, Leisure Pro is awesome about price matching and usually has the product in stock.
ROBERT E  the model that comes with the compass has the compass on top on the front they did not have the correct stock photo when I ordered it they show the model with no compass make sure you're buying the 1 you think you're buying the 1 with a compass has it on top in the front
AARON L D  No, there is a different one that includes the compass.
WILLIAM K  No
MAURICE V  No. Mine came equipped with a compass mounted forward-facing, positioned above the computer screen. I wasn't expecting for it to have a compass at all, so I was surprised. Although, I do like having it there - it's unobtrusive.
GREGORY W  no u have to buy the mares puck air computer console with a compass on the top it's a hundred dollars more. I ordered the one without the compass and they were nice enough to send me the one with a compass. So 5 stars on this compass amazing and very cheap.
MATT C  This is a great computer that is easy to use nitrox ready and includes a compass.
ALLA K  Depends what model you pick, with compass or not. But if you pick model with compass, it is NOT on the back, it is on front above computer.
Lauren H  No, this one does not have a compass, but there is another model that is an exact replica and has a compass mounted above the computer.
JOHN S  No the one with the compass is on a 45 degree angle above the computer. the compass is smaller than normal ane harder to see if you are an old fart like me
DOMINIC B  No, this item does not include a compass.
ANDREW T  No, they make two different Mares Puck computers. It will mention if it has the compass in the main description (w/ compass). This particular one does not.
JEFFREY M  No there is not
