Recreational Nitrox Configuration of Shearwater Petrel 2

The Petrel 2 has a technical open-circuit mode and a rebreather mode; both modes support diving with trimix plus options for planned decompression. Recreational sport divers, who dive only air or nitrox within no-stop required time limits, often find the extensive technical diving displays and option menus unnecessary. When set in the recreational open-circuit mode (aka recreational nitrox mode), the sport diver sees only the features and options meaningful to their style of diving. Also, Shearwater has a simplified Petrel 2 Recreational Nitrox User Manual written exclusively for the sport diver audience.

For Petrel 2 owners who perform more than one style of diving, such as instructors, the computer can be easily switched between any of the three modes (recreational open-circuit, technical open-circuit, and rebreather) with no penalty as all decompression calculation data is retained (except when switching to gauge mode).
