It's a Shearwater

The Peregrine from Shearwater Research of Canada is an Advanced Nitrox dive computer with easy-to-understand menus. The Peregrine offers a large { 2.2 in | 5.6 cm } easy-to-read display utilizing a COLOR screen. The Shearwater quality, color display and extended range feature set make the Peregrine price an exceptional value.

The Peregrine includes open-circuit dive modes for Air, single gas Nitrox (up to 40%), and user selectable 3-gas Advanced Nitrox (up to 100% O2), as well as a richly featured gauge mode. During a decompression dive, the Peregrine provides complete information displays of all required stop times. The Peregrine can provide time-to-surface based on "look ahead" at planned gas switches and will NOT "lockout" after a missed stop or ascent rate violation. The diver has a choice of using either a robust bungee mount or a 27 mm black silicone wrist strap, the Peregrine includes both.

The Peregrine has been designed with a wireless rechargeable battery and includes a wireless induction charging pad. Typical dive time on a single charge is 30 hours at medium screen brightness. Although Shearwater recommends using their charging pad, the Peregrine can also be charged by the flat mats that support the Qi wireless-charging standard (which includes the latest iPhones and many Android phones).

What's in the box: Included with every Peregrine from Dive Gear Express are a 27 mm black silicone two piece wrist strap kit with installation/removal screwdriver tools, shock cord for bungee mount, zippered ballistic nylon polymer travel case, wireless charging pad and USB cable, printed Quick Start Guide with instructions for downloading the full manual and software from the Shearwater Research. The Peregrine also includes a PET screen protector already installed on the screen (plus a spare) to help prevent scratches of the display face. The software includes a complete dive log manager, compatible with both MS Windows and MAC OS X. The dive log manager supports log downloads and firmware updates via the Bluetooth wireless interface. Optional accessories available separately include single color ocean blue, white, or black wrist strap kits and additional charging mats. Shearwater supplies the Peregrine with a very snug zippered "travel" case but if you want a well padded case suitable for boat use and with room for extra storage, consider adding the optional DGX Padded Storage Bag.

Advanced Nitrox Mode Features

The Peregrine has a 3-gas advanced mode that includes a complete planned decompression feature set for extended range diving. It supports a user configurable Gradient Factor and look ahead gas switching (based on the gases defined and active) for the planner and time-to-surface calculations. The Peregrine also supports 100% oxygen for accelerated decompression with a user configurable deco PO2 setting. The last stop depth is user selectable as {10 fsw | 3 msw } or {20 fsw | 6 msw }. Warnings include prompts to switch gases upon reaching a user configurable optimal PO2 setting. The display has a stop approach notice plus an ascent rate indicator, and will NOT lockout for missed stops or excessive ascent rate. The real-time multi-compartment "tissue" saturation bar graph does not time out. This allows tissue off-gassing to be observed on an extended deco stop without having to cycle back to it repeatedly. For table divers needing a bottom timer, the Peregrine also offers a very richly featured gauge mode operational to at least { 395 fsw | 120 msw }.

Sport Nitrox Mode Features

Key features of the Peregrine single gas Sport Nitrox mode include a simpler menu structure, less cluttered display and configurable bottom row, optional safety stops, and a no decompression limit (NDL) dive planner. The simplified settings allow for one breathing gas mixture (Air or Nitrox up to 40%) and places a greater emphasis on the maximum operating depth (MOD) and no decompression time limit. The display prominently warns the diver if their depth is near, at or exceeds the MOD of the selected breathing gas. Optional safety stops are user configurable to be 3, 4, 5 minutes or adaptable. When using the Adapt setting, a 3 minute safety stop will be used, unless the dive exceeds { 100ft | 30m } or the NDL falls below 5 minutes, in which case a 5 minute safety stop is used. If the diver exceeds the NDL and requires stops, the display turns red and warns "DECO STOP" with the mandatory depth and stop times.

Peregrine vs Perdix AI

Side View Peregrine vs Perdix

Shearwater introduced the Perdix AI richly featured technical diving computer in 2016 priced at $935, and the Peregrine extended range sport diving computer in 2020 priced at $450. They have identical color display screens with very similar core feature sets and operation, but the Peregrine can best be thought of as a value engineered Shearwater dive computer appropriate for Air and Nitrox divers that supports multi-gas planned decompression diving, yet without compromising on quality or ease-of-use.

The Perdix AI is a best-in-class technical dive computer that includes support for Trimix, VPM alternative deco algorithm, wireless air integration, an electronic compass and rebreathers. Compared to the very deep rating of the Perdix design, the Peregrine low profile case design is appropriate for the depth limits of Air and Nitrox divers thus allowing significant cost reduction. Omitting the wireless air integration radio receiver and the electronic compass generates further savings. No need to support mixed gas, VPM and closed-circuit also allows for simplified software. The Perdix is powered with any AA size battery and is user changeable, the Peregrine is powered with an internal rechargeable Li-ion 900mAh battery.
