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:

  1. Nitrogen Loading Bar Graph shows the level of nitrogen absorption and No-Deco or Deco status;
  2. Oxygen Loading Bar Graph represents CNS O2 toxicity level from current dive or accumulated for 24 last hours;
  3. Ascent Rate Bar Graph - displays how fast you ascend

 


 

 


 

 


 

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.

This dive computer is very easy to set up, like Cressi Archimede 2. Not many parameters, but it is all you need to enjoy any type of diving and be safe!

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.

 

Cressi Edy II NO-DECO Card

Copy this Cressi Edy II No-Deco Diving Displays Card for your Reference and Share with your friends and buddies!

 

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.

 

Cressi Edy II DECO Card

Copy this Cressi Edy II Deco Diving Displays Card for your Reference and Share with your friends and buddies!

 

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 display looks like following:
  • current and maximum depths;
  • Elapsed Dive Time (EDT);
  • Ascent Rate Bar Graph, while ascending;
  • Max Depth alarm icon (if set to ON);
  • Timer icon

 

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 set Edy II for FREEdiving mode and it senses depth approximately 1 meter, dive computer starts displaying data related to current freedive, that updates every second:

  • current depth;
  • Elapsed Dive Time (EDT);
  • Freedive Elapsed Dive Time (EDT) alarm icon (if set);
  • Max Depth alarm icon (if set);
  • max depth reached during a dive;
  • Ascent Rate Bar Graph (while ascending);
  • temperature

 

Back to Top

 


 

 


 

 


 

When we are on surface - we may access following modes:

  1. Dive Logbook for each dive mode - can store for up to 30 dive hours or data from the last 60 dives (3 pages of very extensive dive data);
  2. Dive History for each mode - for Air, Nitrox, and Gauge it can store up to 599 dives and for Freedive it store Freedive history only on daily basis (means that at the midnight it will be reset);
  3. Dive Profile automatic scrolling for each dive mode;
  4. PC data transfer mode (with optional data cable);
  5. Dive Computer Reset function;
  6. No-Fly Icon displayed - means that any travel or flight higher than current altitude must be avoided until this icon will disappear;
  7. Desaturation Countdown Timer

 

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.

  • strong backlight and many amazing features;
  • the best watch for freediving and diving;
  • very reliable and easy to use;

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.

Cressi Edy Does Its Job Perfectly For Every Type Of Diving

Excellent dive computer, easy to read with simple functions. Great for freediving and spearfishing. Even it doesn't have some functions as other dedicated freediving computers - I still love it and there is no substitution for this one when I'm scubadiving and spearfishing.

Display is easy to read, even with its rather smaller size. Functions are fast and easy to set - there are not many of them. Wrist watch works great onshore - it has all functions I ever wanted.

Replacing battery at dealers doesn't bother me - once in two years not a big deal!

I recommend Cressi Edy II to every recreational diver who wants to have easy, reliable and multifunctional dive computer.

Great For Freediving

Best dive computer watch not only for scubadiving, but also for spearfishing and freediving.

It is designed as a multifunctional computer for all needs, including wrist watch.

Cressi Edy has useful tons of alarms and very important dive data. I highly recommend this computer for recreational and freedivers. And onshore, wrist watch looks great!

Cressi Edy II - Basic And User-friendly

Perfect dive computer for recreational and basic nitrox diving. User-friendly interface, not-too-bad user manual, and intuitive display readouts. Very comfortable and sits perfectly on my wrist.

It doesn't have specific alarms and functions for freediving, but I don't use it too much for this purpose, so I'm OK with it.

I recommend Cressi Edy II for anyone who needs easy-to-use dive computer, as it it perfect combo functions-money!
