Shearwater has entered the market of dive computers in 2004, aiming to create devices with a more intuitive user interface and simpler design. Having strong programming skills and technical diving background, the company’s CEO Bruce Partridge was able to bring a new unique perspective to the world of dive computers. He knew that stressful underwater situations required quick action and as few button pushes as possible. Bruce’s technical knowledge and passion-fueled the production and helped to build robust, reliable, and user-friendly trimix computers and electronic control systems. As a result, Shearwater Research has quickly become one of the major dive computer suppliers, trusted and used by thousands of divers every day.
