Sherwood’s Air-Integrated Wisdom 2 Combines a Sleek Console and a Monster Display
While diving, the Wisdom 2 displays tank pressure on the bottom of the screen in large, easy-to-read numbers. I found this to be both intuitive and helpful, especially since my dive buddy could check my tank pressure without pulling the computer right up to his face. Above the tank pressure are displays for dive time, depth, max depth and other data. Along the sides of the display are bar graphs that give a quick visual reference for nitrogen and oxygen loading.
Behind this brilliantly simple display are a proven algorithm and a good level of user customizability. Nitrox divers can adjust FO2 between 21 and 50 percent, and set PO2 anywhere from 1.2 to 1.6 ata. A slew of audible and visual alarms are also available and accessed through an easy-to-use menu that lets divers toggle each one off or on and then set parameters. I was able to choose alarms for max depth, turn-around pressure, reservetank pressure and ascent rate.
For the incorrigible dive planner, the Wisdom 2 offers a simulator that allows users to walk through any dive scenario before it happens, and a repetitive- dive planning function takes into account nitrogen loading from previous dives. And, should you slip into decompression, the Wisdom 2 will calculate deco stops down to 60 feet. While I didn’t have a pressing need for either of these functions, one I did appreciate was the HydraGlow screen illumination, which turns the computer display into a runway beacon. If there’s one way to improve BFN, it’s with good lighting.
