Mares was already teasing with a new release the last couple of days in their dive computer range. Today is the big day and they announced and present the dive computer 'the Smart'. According to Mares: "Smart replicates the excellent display of the Puck Pro, adding an additional button, buttons repositioned to the side, all packaged into a much slimmer profile."
They have a nicely done video, posted on their Facebook page. However they won't release the video on Youtube till somewhere in November. So I can't embed here for you. A missed opportunity in my eyes as social media advisor, my day job ;). If you want to see the video you can follow the link below to the specific Facebook post.
I've been going through the product details and I'm not really sure what all the fuss is about. It looks great and perhaps the segmented display is new, but for the rest it reads as a standard enough dive computer. Maybe I'm missing something? If so I'd love to hear it from you.
I haven't really found out what the Smart should cost. After some googling I came across a price of $ 450,-. Which isn't really shocking for the specs the Smart is offering.
