Aeris F10: FREEdiving

Diving display has main and alternative screens.

Sound and flashing LED depend on how we set Audio alarm. If we set it to OFF option - we won't hear any audio alarm and there won't be LED flashing, but icons and messages, associated with corresponding alarms will still flash and backlight will come up as well.

During diving we will certainly get alarms as we set them before with audio signal and corresponding messages flashing:

  1. Countdown Timer alarm will activate when Free countdown time decreases to 'zero';
  2. Elapsed Dive Time (EDT) alarm repeats each time when set time interval hits 'zero';
  3. Repeating Depth Interval (RDI) alarm will sound every time when depth interval that you set is reached;
  4. Descending Depth (DD) alarms will sound when you reach certain depth set point

 

As you have already noticed - Aeris F10 dive computer is dedicated purely to freediving with all critical dive data for this activity.

 


 

 


 

 


 

After finishing our dive there is another alarm - Surface Recovery Time (SRT). If we set it to ON - this will beep on us when surface time interval between previous and next dive is elapsed.

On surface we are able to access following functions:

  1. Logbook mode stores up to 99 dives and consists of 3 pages of dive data; 3rd page is for viewing diving profile;
  2. Full History & Day History are quite extencive and each consist of 4 pages with all our freediving activity;
  3. Upload/Download data from and to PC - by using special software we may upload settings of Time, Alarms and Utilities groups from PC to Aeris F10; and by using Download part of that software we are able to download from dive computer to PC our logbook data and set points.

 

Dive computer has user battery replacement option and this operation doesn't make any effect on logbook, history and settings - all data will be retained in memory.

 


 

 


 

 


 

Aeris F10: What Divers Say

Positives

  • very reliable, smart, easy to read;
  • very well setup for recreational and advanced freediving

 

Negatives

  • high price of this dive computer

 

As you may see - Aeris F10 is pure freediving instrument with all functions dedicated only to freediving and can be recommended dive computer for this activity. It has variety set of freediving alarms that will assist you on your way down and up.

Good manuals, friendly user interface and easy to read and interpret display!

We recorded that some units had the internal software problems, but most of the issues were fixed during firmware upgrade at Aeris, so newest units, probably, won't have any problems.

 

Someone may say that this model is overpriced, but it is your call - shop around if you think this way. We have few dive computers on the market with freedive modes with similar price, but they are not pure freediving computers, they include full set of functions for Air and Nitrox diving, like Aeris Manta, Cressi Edy II, Mares Nemo Excel, Oceanic Geo, and Tusa IQ-750 Element II.

Super computer, but......

I am very experienced scuba diving instructor, and freediving is my new hobby. I use this Aeris/Oceanic F10 V3 only some months, but it is excellent!!!

But...:

1) with this price should cost less or include PC interface cable (the same oppinion, like Patrick on 7 March 2012)

2) it is almost impossible to find some special software program for freediving, which will be compatible with this computer. Special this I can not understand, this should be the task of the manufacturer!!!

Aeris F10 - Perfect For Spearfishing

I've bought Aeris F10 for spearfishing and I've been diving with it for more than 3 years already. I've never used a dive computer or dive watch that was such well and convenient made for my hobby! This freediving computer has everything I need and all information clearly shown on easy to read display. And I don't care about its higher price - I just love it!

Best Freediving Comp Ever!

I'm a freediver and do spearfishing as well, so I bought Aeris F.10. Also I have Sherwood Insight.

F.10 is solely freediving computer and I'm more than pleased with its performance. It is intuitive, so I didn't spend lots of time for figuring out how to set it and use.

I like very comprehensive number of freediving alarms, well-structured and easy to read display!

Price bites, but it cost every penny of my investment!

Enjoying Freediving With Aeris F10

This dive computer was made only for freedivers and for spearfishing. It doesn't calculate No-Deco Limits and all related information. I figured out how to use it right away, thanks to easy to understand user documentation and interface.

Aeris F10 is easy to set and dive with. All dive data is presented on easy to read and intuitive display. Computer has number of alarms that I found very critical to freediver - Elapsed Dive Time, Repeating Depth & Descending Depth alarms. It never failed me at any depth - either at 15 m deep or at sea surface, if I use is as a normal wristwatch!

It has quite extensive Log and History mode.

With PC interface cable I could download dive data to my PC. Sometimes PC couldn't recognize Aeris F10 in some reason, but it happens not very often, so I can't give it big Con. Bigger Con will be its price! I think Aeris F10 v.1 should cost less or include PC interface cable (otherwise I had to buy it separately and pay 90 bucks)!

Overall, Aeris F10 satisfies completely my needs in freediving and I can give it an "excellent" mark!
