Here is another purpose for your favorite handheld device. An app that functions with a waterproof case can now turn your smartphone into a full fledged dive computer.
Vivian Wagner, of TechNewsWorld describes the advent of Amphibian Labs product, iGills in her March 3, 2014 piece entitled “A Deep Dive Into New Scuba Tech”
Apparently there is still some hesitation. However its obvious that an iPhone today has the computing power that can match a dedicated dive computer. iGills seems to be a great idea and we can’t wait to try it out
There is something so cool about the idea of bringing an iPhone 50 feet down with you. Some of the features available is the ability to take HD video underwater, use your flash light underwater, take photos and it will record the exact depth and location of the photos.
