AVAILABILITY NOTICE: Although we have a large quantity of Terics on order, Shearwater has a production backlog and their shipping date estimates have an exceptionally wide range. We do not know reliably in advance precisely when we will receive more. DGX policy is not to accept "pre-orders" for products with such uncertain dates of delivery, so we have temporarily suspended accepting customer orders for Terics until we receive more stock.

We apologize, we sold out of our most recent shipment of Terics. If you missed the opportunity to purchase, we suggest you click the link above to signup to be notified when we are again back in stock. Shearwater has published more details about Teric availability at How long will I have to wait to get my new Teric? We have already placed several stocking orders for Terics and are monitoring availability very closely.

  • Nitrox & Trimix decompression dive computer in wrist-watch form factor
  • Bühlmann ZHL-16c algorithm with configurable Gradient Factors
  • Supports optional wireless tank pressure transmitters
  • Switchable audible and vibration alerts
  • Supports Open-Circuit, Fixed PO2, Gauge, and Freediving Modes

The Teric (the 'P' is silent...sort of) from Shearwater Research of Canada is a full technical dive computer with recreational divers in mind. The Teric includes open-circuit and closed-circuit Air, Nitrox and Trimix multi-gas functionality along with a three-axis tilt-compensated digital compass. It has Recreational, Gauge, Freediving, Open-Circuit Tech and Closed-Circuit/Bail-Out modes. The Teric has four buttons and incorporates situation adaptable logic menus to make operating and diving the Teric very intuitive. The Teric is also very configurable; for example you can set a button to give you a single press access to different tools like compass, stopwatch, countdown timer, etc. There are haptic (vibration) and audible alarms that can be disabled (none, either, both) to prevent annoying other divers in the vicinity.

The Teric offers an information screen utilizing a {1.39 in | 35 mm} full color AMOLED display with a { Diameter x Height | 55mm x 18mm } body and { 4.25 oz | 120.4 g } weight. Brightness levels are user adjustable and accessible with just one button press. During a decompression dive, the Teric provides complete information displays of all required stop times. The Teric can provide time-to-surface based on "look ahead" at planned gas switches. Multiple gas definition presets are supported with any combination of oxygen, nitrogen and helium. The Teric will NOT "lockout" after a missed stop or ascent rate violation. After the dive, the Teric communicates via Bluetooth to connect with the Shearwater Cloud dive log manager, which is compatible with MS Windows, OS X, iOS and Android devices, supporting wireless log downloads and firmware updates.

The Teric supports hoseless gas pressure integration, sometimes called air integration (AI). The Teric is capable of wirelessly connecting to either one or two optional transmitters giving the diver ability to monitor up to two tank pressures. It is also capable of calculating the Gas Time Remaining (GTR) on one assigned tank. Air integration is optional for all modes, from OC Rec to CC/BO. The tank pressure(s), in PSI or BAR, and GTR can be displayed to the customizable slots on the main display screen or accessed through the underlying information screens.

The Teric base price does not include a tank pressure transmitter because the consumer may not wish to use the AI feature or may already own a compatible transmitter. Shearwater Research tells us that as long as the transmitter is marked with "FCC ID MH8A" on the body then the transmitter, regardless of the brand, will also work with their Teric, Perdix AI and NERD 2 model air integrated dive computers.

The Teric has been designed with a wireless rechargeable battery and includes a wireless induction charger stand. Typical dive time on a single charge is at least 30 hours and as much as 50 hours, depending on the features enabled. The expected life of the built in battery is five (5) years and the battery can be replaced at one of the Shearwater factory authorized service centers. Although Shearwater recommends using their charging stand, the Teric 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 Teric from Dive Gear Express are black silicone 22mm wrist strap with buckle, strap extender with buckle (for drysuits), strap pin (spare) with installation/removal screwdriver tools, wireless charging stand and USB cable, USB Bluetooth adapter, zippered travel case, printed Quick Start Guide with instructions for downloading the full manual and software from the Shearwater Research. Available Shearwater options include user changeable dual color wrist bands in Blue, Green, Pink, White, or Yellow. The optional Shearwater elastic strap is depth compensating with a slide-release buckle design that many divers find easier to don, especially over exposure suits. Shearwater supplies the Teric with a zippered "travel" case. 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.

Recreational Open-Circuit Features

Key features of the Recreational Open-Circuit mode (aka Recreational Nitrox mode) include a simpler menu structure, less cluttered display with a larger font and configurable bottom row, optional safety stops, and a no-decompression limit dive planner. The simplified settings allow for three breathing gas mixtures (Air or Nitrox) and places a greater emphasis on the maximum operating depth (MOD) and no decompression time limit (NDL). 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 mins 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.

    This is a great piece of kit that’s exceedingly simple to use and customize. The Shearwater Cloud application provides a lot of useful information and a larger format dive profile with relevant tissue loading information. I’ve used it on 10 recreational dives, including 2 night dives (the nighttime color profile is excellent) and couldn’t be more impressed.

Differences of Teric vs Perdix Dive Computers

Diving watches have traditionally been perceived as being less capable or having poorer information display as a result of compromises for size; that's no longer true with the recent introduction of the Shearwater Teric dive computer.

Other than the obvious difference of the wrist-watch form factor, the Teric includes several features not found found on the Perdix:

  • AMOLED display - vivid, bright colors reminiscent of the Predator offers exceptional readability underwater along with a user configurable Big Layout display setting to enable larger fonts that can eliminate the need for "gauge readers".
  • Haptic (vibration) and audible alarms - can be disabled to minimize annoyance.
  • Scratch resistant Sapphire Crystal display window - along with stainless steel bezel protected with a vapor deposition carbon coating for an elegant and durable finish.
  • Four button situation adaptable logic menus - also configure one of the buttons to give you one press access to certain dive or watch tools like compass, stopwatch, deco planner, log tagging, etc.
  • Blue, Green, Pink, White, Yellow - dual color wrist bands are options and standard 22 mm watch strap size makes many 3rd party options available. DGX also offers a Depth Compensating Slide Release wrist band preferred by many divers wearing heavy exposure suits.
  • Wireless rechargeable battery – users have no need to open the body thus reducing chances of flooding. This also eliminates the risk of damage from a depleted primary battery that begins to leak acid.
  • Timepiece mode - the Teric can be comfortably worn as a stylish daily timepiece with a selection of watch faces.
  • Free Diving mode - ascent and descent indicators suitable for free diving along with configurable logging intervals as short as 1 second.

The Teric firmware currently supports only English language menus, while the Perdix supports alternate firmware loads with English and a second language choice of French, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, German, Japanese, or Korean. Shearwater Research tells us they expect to introduce alternate language firmware loads for the Teric, but no definite time frame has been established.

As of 2018, recent decompression research has called in to question the practice of "deep stops" and Shearwater Research does not recommend the use of the VPM algorithm. The Teric only supports the proven Bühlmann ZHL-16c algorithm with configurable Gradient Factors and does not offer support for the alternative VPM algorithm. The Petrel and Perdix models currently continue to support VPM as an extra cost optional alternative.
