Reviews about Mares Icon HD
Mares Icon HD:
Color My Dive World
• TFT LCD color display.

ICON HD is a True full-color display computer. Its screen is made using LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) with TFT (Thin Film Transistor) technology.
An intuitive software, the use of large characters, and the contrast created by using different colors, makes the on screen information easy to read, immediate and clear.
During the dive besides the standard navigation mode EXTEND, divers can switch to a second dive mode PROFILE. ICON HD processes and shows the full dive curve in real time. The computer’s memory allows the storage of images and photos, including digital maps of diving spots.
ICON HD will be available from summer 2009. Air integration upgrade will be available from spring 2010.
FOR DEMANDING DIVERS
Those who dive frequently and in difficult conditions need products featuring superior quality and consistent performance, time and time again. Mares has always focused on new technologies and innovative products that lead to concrete benefits: superior reliability and performance will be appreciated by the most experienced demanding divers.
Designing and engineering products for cold water diving requires maximum attention to performance, safety and technical details. Mares creates equipment specific for cold water and ice diving. Rigorous tests ensure top notch performance keeping you comfortable, warm and secure. Even the US Navy has conceded Mares to be the best equipment for extreme conditions.
Comfort is always one of the primary design elements in Mares equipment. Mares through superior technology continues to research, innovate and upgrade your level of comfort before and during your dive. Equipment marked with Max Comfort bring this quality of comfort to the most up-to-date premier pinnacle.
IDEAL FOR TRAVEL
In today’s world of travel we are strictly confined by airline weight restrictions, therefore the design of your equipment needs to encompass elements to be travel friendly. Lightweight, streamlined, easy to pack and hassle free are just some of the elements included in the gear marked for travel.
This gear line is designed specifi cally for women in style, cut, and ergonomics making your dives much more comfortable than in years past. Careful consideration to detail in functionality and aesthetic specifically for women make the She Dives collection the ideal choice for your Scuba and snorkeling needs.
The Mares-Wienke “Reduced Gradient Bubbles Model” algorithm is the most evolved algorithm to date for preventing the formation of microbubbles. Obtained from a study done by Dr. Bruce Wienke in the Los Alamos labs on over 10,000 real dives, RGBM algorithm incorporates Deep Stop function to further increases safety without compromising dive time.
SPECIAL FUNCTION MODE
Mares computers provide specialized program functions dedicated for the needs of specific divers. On the next pages, highlighted “letters” in this icon indicate that the Mares computerprovides that function. Air - Nitrox - Free-dive - Bottom-timer
PRECAUTIONARY PROGRAM SETTINGS
Many Mares computers can be individually set and adjusted to more conservative dive profi les if needed. When you do multi-level or multiple dives during a single day, you can choose different setting levels in order to adjust your computer to a more conservative dive profile.
The Easy Access 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, whether the computer is equipped with one, two, three or four push buttons.
SUPERIOR DISPLAY READABILITY
In order to offer easy-to-read instruments in every circumstance, Mares produces wide computer displays, with intense backlighting and high contrast displays. Featuring illuminated, oversized digits. Special attention is paid to maximize the viewing angle, to eliminate angular distortion and to always grant the best readability.
Mares computers are well known for having the strongest backlight illumination displays. This is only possible thanks to intelligent power supply management and the use of standard batteries. The display can be temporarily or permanently backlit (depending on the model) for better readability during night dives or dives with limited visibility.
MINERAL GLASS DISPLAY
Most Mares computers are equipped with mineral glass displays. This provides superior scratch resistance, similar to the mineral glass used by watch manufacturers. The mineral glass is shock-proof, tempered, and non-refl ective for better readability in all diving conditions and visibility levels.
Allows you to upgrade software over the Internet using the DRAK interface. This feature makes it possible to download the latest software developments as Mares creates them, without the need to buy a new computer unit. Smart, easy to use and upgradeable - provided fi rst by Mares.
