Cressi Edy II has 4 control buttons. Using them you will have access to variety of settings, displays, and retrieving information that is related to your dive or when you are on the surface.
This dive computer has 3 Bar Graphs:
As usual routine, we set desirable parameters and dive mode at this stage. Cressi Edy II can function as a digital watch, so we may start adjusting our time, date, time zone, daily alarm, etc. After that we will set specific dive parameters.

You may use Dive Planner as well. This function allows you to plan next dives and see bottom times for variety of depths based on residual nitrogen you have from previous dives.
Cressi Edy II: Diving With Air & Nitrox
After we set our dive mode, all parameters and submerged deeper than approximately 1.5 meters, Cressi Edy II would switch automatically to selected dive mode and start displaying corresponding dive data.

Dive computer displays special bar graph representing oxygen toxicity level, and if you have all 8 segments filled up - that time you will get High O2 alarm.
When you set Edy II for Nitrox, you adjust not only FO2, but PO2 as well. At that time dive computer calculates maximum allowable depth according to the gas mixture in use. And if you exceed that depth - Edy II will give you High PO2 alarm.
Cressi Edy II is programmed to automatically prompt you for Safety Stop upon reaching certain conditions of diving. Safety Stop prompt is displayed with Stop Depth and Stop Time. It is not mandatory, but it is considered to be a good diving practice, especially if you were ascending continuously faster than allowed.
Also if you ascend too fast at the certain depths - dive computer will give you an audio warning of High Ascent Rate alarm, and you may actually observe what is your ascent on Ascent Rate Bar Graph that is coloured with green segments and red segments - obviously, we should keep our ascent speed in green zone!
If we exceed our No-Decompression Limits (NDLs), Edy II will activate Decompression mode and all calculations from this moment will start for that mode only.

If you, by any reason, ascended shallower than Deco Stop depth displayed and didn't correct your position within 3 minutes - Cressi Edy II would display 'Error' message and you wouldn't be able to use it as a dive computer for the next 48 hours. Only Logbook, History, Set Time and Alarm, and PC modes would be accessible - this 'Lock' function is similar to Archimede 2 dive computer.
Cressi Edy II: Diving In GAUGE Mode
Next dive mode of Cressi Edy II is a Gauge mode. In this mode - Edy II works as a depth gauge and timer only and do not perform oxygen and nitrogen loading calculations. In this mode maximum depth is increased to 200 meters (like in Archimede 2).
In Gauge mode there is useful function - Timer. You may easily set, reset, or stop it during a dive.
Cressi Edy II: FREEdiving
Cressi Edy II has another dive mode that will be welcomed by freedivers, and of course, it is Freedive mode.
When we are on surface - we may access following modes:
As you may see, this dive computer has broad number of features as during diving and on surface! Please, note here - Cressi Edy II, as Archimede 2, doesn't have 'battery hot swap' option or 'data retention' function!
If battery is replaced during desaturation calculation in progress - all data will be lost. And adjustable parameters will turn to factory defaults. In this scenario - do not dive for at least next 24 hours or note how many hours left before desaturation finishes and stay out of diving for that amount of time!
And there is more - this dive computer doesn't have user battery replacement option. As Cressi recommends - battery must be replaced in special centre by qualified technician, and after that Cressi Edy II must be checked for water-tightness.
Cressi Edy II: What Divers Say
Cressi Edy II is a very intuitive, easy to use, and user-friendly dive computer. I couldn't dig up any major negative responces from users around!
Digits are big and easy readable under water, backlight duration is long enough to see what's happening. It has plenty of features for any taste, and it is suitable for beginners and advanced divers.
