Sherwood's Wisdom 3 with Compass and Quick-Disconnect has new full-time access to no-decompression limits (NDL) regardless of air time remaining (ATR), dive time remaining (DTR) on main screen. When in dive mode, see your available dive time whether limited by ATR or NDL. Sherwood Scuba's reputation is built on rugged reliability. The new Wisdom 3 is a direct reflection of Sherwood's commitment to this world-renowned reputation. Sherwood has taken their best computer and made it better, stronger and more reliable. The Wisdom 3 displays tank pressure on the bottom of the screen in large, easy-to-read numbers. Above the tank pressure are displays for dive time, depth, maximum depth and other data. Along the side of the display are bar graphs that give a quick visual reference for nitrogen and oxygen loading.
Air Time Remaining (ATR):
The Air Time Remaining feature calculates current depth, tank pressure, breathing rate, ascent time, & decompression status to tell you exactly how much time you can remain underwater. The Wisdom 3 continually displays ATR via a numerical bar graph in addition to cylinder pressure. You may also display ATR in oversized digits at any time with the press of a button.
Dive Time Remaining (DTR):
Dive Time Remaining, like ATR provides a 'real' number in minutes. This calculation combines ATR, nitrogen and oxygen absorption, displaying whichever allows less time. Is it a good idea to check your computer before entering the water? You bet. Could you forget to activate your computer? Sure. The Wisdom 3 features push button or automatic activation, triggered by water contact. A benefit of push button activation is easily verifying operation and cylinder pressure, but in case you forget, or simply choose not to activate your computer, it can be as simple as jumping in the water.
The new Wisdom 3 is an intuitive easy to use and operate with easy to read large digital display. The computer has diver selectable alarms, deep stop reminders, DECO warnings, and has Air, Nitrox and Gauge Modes. Computer has a dive simulator that allows you to walk yourself through any dive beforehand and see your limits without getting wet. The repetitive dive planning mode uses information from previous dives to see limitations of your next dive. Logging your dives is made easy with the dive log function that stores profiles for later recall and viewing. The computer can be activated manually or will automatically activate when it gets wet.
The Wisdom 3 has both audible and visual alarms for vital information concerning your dive safety. Computer has HydroGlow that illuminates the screen in low light or night diving conditions making reading the computer data easy regardless of the dive conditions. The Wisdom 3 will also give you information on when it is safe to fly after diving along with up to the minute de-saturation calculations. If you dive at high altitudes the Wisdom 3 will make all adjustments up to 14,000' (4,267 meters). Computer displays N2 and O2 absorption in bar graphs for instant recognition of this critical information. There is a date and time-of-day record for all dives, an adjustable data sampling rate function and the Wisdom 3 uses a common CR2450 lithium battery for power that is user replaceable. Computer has a maximum depth display of 399' (120 meters), maximum pressure readout of 5,000 psi (345 bars) and temperature readout up to 99°F (60°C).
The Wisdom 3 comes equipped with a compass module. There are no street signs underwater. The reef is not on the corner of 3rd and Elm! Knowing which way to go or finding your way back to the beach or boat is made easy with the Wisdom 3 compass. Many divers take compasses for granted, considering them just an accessory to an overall dive gauge console system. Trying to navigate with a poorly designed or improperly functioning compass can be one of diving's more frustrating events. The Compass is mounted at an angle above the Computer, for side-reading gun-sight accurate navigation. The compass is liquid filled for a quick and responsive movement. A ratchet bezel with compass headings in 30° numbered increments and indicator marks for every 10°. Bezel has twin heading indicators for alignment of compass course and a lubber line across the compass face. A side window with compass degrees allows gun-sight accurate use when precise headings are required. Compass card is luminescent for low light conditions.
Also included with the Wisdom 3 with Compass is a quick disconnect (QD) fitting on the computer end of the hose. The QD adds safety to your delicate instrument allowing you to disconnect the computer so you can bring it as a carry-on item when you travel. It also makes logging your dives easier by allowing you to remove it from your regulator system without lugging your entire rig around. Wisdom 3 with Compass and QD comes with a comprehensive owner's manual.
