Re-engineering Dive Computers Helps Overcome Challenge of Strengthening Chassis

The wrist dive computer market is projected to expand at a modest CAGR of ~4% during the forecast period. However, there is a need to strengthen the chassis of dive computers without significantly increasing its overall size. Hence, Deepblu - one of the fastest-growing online community for divers and ocean enthusiasts, is capitalizing on this opportunity to publicize the COSMIQ+ Gen 5 dive computer, which is found to improve physical performance and strengthen the chassis.

Manufacturers in the wrist dive computer market are increasing their research to develop dive computers with new chassis design that are equipped with additional fasteners and increased memory to accommodate several hundreds of dive logs. Customizable depth alarms are being preferred in these devices.

Beginner-friendly, Affordable Dive Computers Preferred by Users

The wrist dive computer market is predicted to reach a valuation of US$ 400 Mn by 2030. An increasing number of startups and eCommerce are intensifying competition in the market landscape. However, still many devices lack appropriate user manual, have bulky designs, and are deficient in memory. Hence, there is a need to reinforce R&D in products to gain a competitive edge over other market players by increasing the availability of affordable and beginner-friendly wrist dive computers.

Dive computers such as the Mares Puck Pro, Suunto Zoop Novo, and Cressi Leonardo are being highly publicized in the wrist dive computer market. Eye-catchy colors, sophisticated design, and budget-friendly dive computers are being preferred by beginners and advanced divers. Manufacturers are increasing the availability of devices that are compatible with Windows and Mac PCs.

Seasoned Divers Opt for Wireless Air Integration in Dive Computers

Buying guides and online reviews are helping divers make an informed purchase decision. Manufacturers in the wrist dive computer market are increasing their production capabilities in air integrated dive computers with sleek designs and rugged build to boost product uptake. There is a growing awareness about price, diving level, navigation, and display among users. This awareness is gaining more importance, as many times the device’s backlight malfunctions and makes it challenging for divers to read the data.

Manufacturers in the wrist dive computer market are innovating in devices that deploy wireless air integration that is synced to a Bluetooth transmitter mounted to the first stage of the regulator. However, wireless transmitters usually do not come with dive computers, which implies that users need to pay extra to achieve this integration. Hence, manufacturers are targeting seasoned divers who are ready to invest in air transmitters, as these devices are potentially fragile and susceptible to damage. Key buying factors including data on oxygen blend, display type, and operating modes are influencing buyer decision in the global wrist dive computer market.

Analysts’ Viewpoint

Since the coronavirus crisis has paralyzed the travel and tourism industry, companies are focusing on the rapidly growing e-commerce sector and are therefore, increasing capabilities in new product releases. Add on features such as adjustable dive profile, optional added deep stop, and residual nitrogen reset are being preferred by divers.

The hoseless air integration is a fast growing phenomenon in the wrist dive computer market. Getting rid of the burden of a full dangling console to manage changes in diving is proving helpful for divers. The hoseless air integration is eliminating issues of bringing the diver’s hand up to the face and fumble through the water for the dive computer. Manufacturers are increasing the availability of devices that provide full time-keeping functions and are integrated with an advanced sports mode that offers features such as swim stroke counter, activity counter (pedometer), and stopwatch. Next-gen dive computers help to upload dive logs wirelessly from the dive computer to the device’s specific app, which allows import of photos and videos taken from the camera.

Wrist Dive Computer Market: Overview

  • A wrist dive computer is a device used by an underwater diver to measure time and depth during a dive, and use this data to calculate and display an ascent profile, which, according to the programmed decompression algorithm, will give a low risk of decompression sickness
  • Dive computers may be wrist-mounted or fitted to a console with the submersible pressure gauge. A dive computer is perceived by recreational scuba divers and service providers to be one of the most important items of safety equipment. Use by surface-supplied divers is less widespread, as the diver’s depth is monitored at the surface by a pneumofathometer, and decompression is controlled by the diving supervisor.

Rise in Tourism and Increase in Participation of Scuba Divers in Marine Conservation: Key Drivers of Wrist Dive Computer Market

  • Rising investment in underwater infrastructure, which primarily involves the construction of new ports, laying underwater fiber optic cables, tunnels, bridges, etc., is identified as a key market opportunity for wrist dive computers. Marine infrastructure projects usually employ certified commercial divers to inspect underwater construction elements.
  • Moreover, commercial diving is viewed as an exciting career opportunity for any adventure-seeking person, veterans, and ex-military individuals. Commercial diving companies are regulated by strict regulations regarding worker’s safety and health. For instance, OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration), and ADC (Association of Diving Contractors International) regulates, and The NOAA Diving Control and Safety Board (NDCSB) have established certain regulations and standards for the commercial diving industry. Therefore, commercial diving is expected to drive the demand for wrist dive computers during the forecast period.
  • Some popular volunteer programs include Shark conservation in Fiji; sea turtle conservation projects in Costa Rica, Bali, and Guatemala; Galapagos Islands conservation project; coral reef conservation in Belize, etc.
  • The number of ocean conservation organizations has increased significantly in recent years, some of which include the Marine Bio Conservation Society, Project AWARE, and Coral Reef Alliance

Competition for Lowest Prices Acts as Restraint for Wrist Dive Computer Market

  • Many new manufacturers tend to design low-priced products by compromising the quality and industry standards to cater to the rising demand for wrist dive computers across the recreational diving industry. By persistently lowering the prices, wrist dive computers cannot be serviced accurately and increases the possibility of diving accidents.
  • Moreover, proper maintenance of wrist dive computers is highly recommended as the constituents of marine water, and occasional bumps and scratches can cause extensive wear and tear. Affordability of wrist dive computers is very low in emerging economies of the Middle East and the Asia Pacific.
