Head N.V. Launches New Firmware for Nemo Wide Dive Computer

Head N.V. has launched a new firmware for Nemo Wide dive computer. The Nemo Wide is completely off. To wake it up press any button. From this point onwards the Nemo Wide is ‘normal’ and shipping mode cannot be reactivated. Since the CR2450 batteries have an shelf life, this should ensure a practically NEW battery regardless of time spent in warehouses/shops. The only negative point is that user, the customer have to set the time and date. There is the option to disable the display of deep stops (Set/Set dive/Deep). The Dive Planner allows user to define an additional surface interval (useful in repetitive dives) and to plan deco dives. It has increased stand-by time (+30%) due to improved battery management. There is improved functionality of the backlight in cold water dives when the backlight is permanently on. Whereas before in 14°C water, even with a new battery, the backlight would automatically turn off within 20 minutes, now in excess of 20 1-hour dives in 4°C water temperatures can be made on one battery with the light always on. Note that when, due to the backlight always on, the battery symbol comes up during the dive and the backlight is turned off automatically, it is not an indication of the battery being low but of the battery suffering the cold. After a few minutes in a warmer environment the battery symbol typically disappears. Within a few hours the battery has recovered and is good to go again. So if the backlight turns off after 50 minutes during a 1-hour dive in cold water, the same dive can be repeated several times when a sufficient surface interval (3-4 hours, for the battery to recover completely from the thermal shock) elapses. Upon entering the PLAN menu, the display shows active P Factor and Altitude settings (P0 and A0 are identified by the absence of any indication), the water type in the middle row, and ‘surf 0:00’ in the bottom row. From here press the upper or lower button to increase or decrease the additional surface interval to be used in the planning (meaningful only in repetitive dives of course, but very useful in that instance). To the right of the surface interval, the Nemo Wide shows the current CNS%, updated to the set surface interval. Press ENTER to enter the no deco planning mode: Nemo Wide starts at a depth of 12m/40ft and displays the corresponding no deco limit, in addition to either AIR or the oxygen percent of the set nitrox. Press the upper or lower button to scroll through all depths between 12m/40ft and the MOD of the set main gas. To enter the deco dive planner for a given depth, press ENTER when the depth of interest is displayed: Nemo Wide will add one minute to the no deco limit and display the corresponding decompression obligation. From here press the upper button to add minutes to the bottom time and Nemo Wide will display the corresponding decompression obligation. Press the lower button to reduce the bottom time. Press ESC to return to the no deco dive planner.
