The Mares Quad dive computer is the latest from Mares, with a large clear display and a host of useful features it's bound to be a success.The Quad is an easy to use computer, ideal for everyone but with multi gas capabilities to cater for the more technical diver as well.
The large display make it especially useful for those struggling to see small sreens and digits. The Quad is also future proofed with the ability to update the software as new versions become available.
Having just had the opportunity to take the Mares Quad computer on a few dives I thought I would give some feedback which may be helpful to anyone thinking of a purchase, beyond the usual facts and figures.
Firstly, having been around for a few years I find seeing my diving watch a little challenging, so the large display, and in particular, the large digits for the most important info needed whilst in the water, made this so much easier for me to use. Some might be put off by the physical size of the unit but for me clarity of view was most important, and, if any of you out there can remember it, the 'Orca Edge' was my first computer, which was akin to strapping a small brick to your arm, by comparison this is compact and bijou!
Whilst there is a comprehensive instruction manual with it, I did what most do when I first got it and just started pressing the buttons. Within a few minutes I had set time, date etc., and found my way around all the different modes, which must mean it's super intuitive as I didn't come accross a single problem I couldn't work out without refering to the manual (or a young kid). The four buttons also take the frustration out of working your way through the menu's as if you go too far you can just go back, rather than having to keep scrolling until you get to the correct point again, particularly useful if you're in a hurry, or just an impatient kind of person!Whilst I'll never use all of the multi gas and decompression abilities it offers, the nitrox option will be used, and I also found that to be simple to set up.
My verdict, the Quad is an excellent new computer from Mares, it's quite light, to my eyes stylish, simple and refreshingly clear and easy to get on with. If you've dived with a computer before and know how to use one, simply strap it on your wrist, jump in the water and enjoy.
