With a case diameter of just 2.07 (52.6mm), Newton is a truly compact dive watch computer. It s also the ideal tool out of the water as well snorkeling, swimming, or just everyday use, thanks to the option to deactivate the dive program to prevent needless alarms or consumption while not diving. The face is mineral glass and the watch has a heavy-duty reinforced case depth rated to 492 (150 meters). The Cressi Newton Wrist Computer comes with a durable rubber strap with stainless steel buckle. As a timepiece the Newton has a 12/24 format clock with minutes, seconds and calendar. The Newton also has a precision stopwatch, second time setting and alarm clock.
The Newton Dive Computers main dive computer function characteristics are: Dual-mixture Cressi RGBM algorithm this new algorithm was created through a collaboration between Cressi and Bruce Wienke based on the Haldane model, integrated with RGBM factors for safe decompression calculations in repetitive multi-day dives and with mixtures. The computers software handles two different hyper-oxygenated mixtures, which can be selected during the dive. The computer uses a tissues model with 9 saturation half-times ranging from 2.5 to 480 minutes. The "Dive" program provides full processing of dive data, including decompression if applicable, for every dive performed with Air or Nitrox. The Newton has a full setting of FO2 parameters (oxygen percentage) and PO2 (oxygen partial pressure) with the option to set between 17.4 psi and 23.2 psi (1.2 bar and 1.6 bar), and FO2 from 21% and 99%.
The Newton will also allow you the option to take a nitrox dive after one with air (even while de-saturating). Computer allows option to set Deco (decompression calculation) or Gage (depth gauge and timer) modes. The deep stop function can be turned on or off. There is a planning decompression curve scrolling function, computer can be set for metric or imperial units of measure and a graphic CNS oxygen toxicity indicator. When diving in low light conditions the Newton Dive Computer is equipped with a backlit display and allows a log book function with 70 hr. or 60 dive capacity. Computer has a dive history saved function, option for full reset and is easy to read with a display with oversize digits. The Newton Dive Computer is compatible with PC/Mac interface with simulator and dive profile (optional). The computer comes with a comprehensive owner s manual.
