Mares Nemo Wide is very distinctive from its fellows dive computers. It is stylish and weightless on your hand and only 2 centimeters thick. It is designed as a wrist unit, and not as a dive watch computer.

You may add to this solid mineral glass, which abolishes need of the screen protector.

Mares did a very nice upgrade to Nemo Wide not long time ago: now we have dive computer that supports 3 Nitrox mixes with FO2 21 - 99% for Mix 2 and 3. That's one of the coolest things about it!
Dive computer has 4 big buttons that are easy accessible even if you wear thick gloves while diving in cold water. Easy to understand and intuitive interface gives you quick access to all functions.
It is set up ergonomically very well! I wish it had wireless transmitter and hoseless air-integration! But even without this option – Nemo Wide is ‘cool’!

Mares Nemo Wide: Diving With Air & Nitrox
During diving you will see different displays with information available according to the type of each diving condition – whether it is Air or Nitrox and have No-Decompression or Decompression situations, or use Nemo Wide as a Gauge, and have a different set of displays as well.

When you reach certain conditions, dive computer may give you Safety Stop prompt or series of 1 minute Deep stops in decompression dives, or if you are close to exceeding No-Decompression Limits.
After you started ascending, dive computer starts monitoring your ascent rate and notify you if the rate of ascent is more than 12m/min (39ft/min) – it gives you message SLOW on the display bar and audible alarm goes on. Alarm continues until you ascend slower and your ascent rate will be in maximum allowable range.
Mares Nemo Wide monitors our PO2 and CNS toxicity level. If we exceed maximum level of certain PO2 by descending deeper - dive computer will activate an alarm and to make it silent we need to ascend to the depth where PO2 will be in the limit we set. If during a dive oxygen toxicity level hits 75% - computer will activate High O2 alarm. During a dive you will see %CNS value shown on the display.
It may happen that we exceeded No-Decompression Limits, and in this case dive computer turns Decompression mode.

Mares Nemo Wide manages Decompression stops by graphically displaying two triangles (arrows). And you must follow the prompts of this dive computer to stay at the certain depth to avoid of the danger of the Decompression Sickness (DCS).
If we exceed Decompression Stop for 1 meter and stay at shallower depth for more than 3 minutes - computer activates Omitted Stop mode and locks for this mode for 24 hours. During that time it will function as a depth gauge and timer only.
Mares Nemo Wide: Diving In GAUGE Mode
Next dive mode of Nemo Wide is Gauge. In this mode dive computer operates as a depth gauge and timer only and doesn’t calculate No-decompression Limits and Decompression-stops times. Below you see representation of dive data displayed in Gauge mode:
By pressing ENTER and PLUS buttons you will get maximum depth reached during a dive, and view the preset dive parameters settings.
