Following last month’s announcement that Shearwater Research would be integrating its products with the Deepblu app, the dive computer maker is now officially the third member of Deepblu’s “Elite Fleet”—after Scubapro and TUSA: Three of Shearwater’s dive computers now work with Deepblu’s digital dive-logging app—Petrel 2, Perdix, and Perdix AI—with NERD 2 gaining integration capability shortly.

The Deepblu app, which also interfaces with the company’s own COSMIQ computer, allows users to create digital dive logs, add photos and videos, and easily share on the Deepblu platform, as well as other social media networks.
