Salvimar One freedive computer

Anyone has had a chance to try the new Salvimar One freedive computer? It seems it came out December 2016. And is currently very well priced (149 euros in Europe). But the specs sheet is not detailed. And it seems the sellers don't have detailed specs either.

It is quite new. I'm also waiting to see the reviews.

Salvimar is quite a reputable brand. But the lack of detailed specs for this product is strange. It would be a pitty making a good product but failing in providing information about it.

Re: Salvimar One freedive computer

Been searching for details on this watch myself. Found this article that goes into a bit of detail about it. Can be had off ebay for 165 shipped from Italy right now. While there isn't much information, it comes with a 2 year warranty so if any problems arise it should be covered. I just ordered one; will update once I get a chance to use it!

Here's the article if anyone is interested - http://www.apneapassion.com/en/equip...vimar-one.html

Re: Salvimar One freedive computer

Salvimar came out with this product around November but did not actually start selling until the last few months. They are now available in the states and all you have to do is contact your closest Salvimar dealer. Note that the 2 year warranty is voided if it is not purchased in the states. You have to run the warranty through the company you purchase from.

All the products manufactured in Europe have 2 year warranty.

It doesn't matter where you are.

Doubt they would deny a warranty claim should anything come up. I searched but nothing came up for US retailers. It's my assumption that if a store that operates in e-commerce does not list a product, then it isn't for sale yet. Only a few stores even have it listed, and those that had it in USD it was listed for $300. I just assumed it was in a test period before they sent them out on a global scale.

Contact anyone in the states who sells salvimar. They have quick access to this product even if they haven't advertised it yet. Like I said it is still very new

The watch was not made available right away in the USA mainly because we wanted to wait and make sure it had no issues. We tested a few of these and had no problems with them so far. They are very simple to use and the price is a no brainer.

In regards to warranty it is true the watch has a 2 year warranty but it has to be purchased by the authorized distributor not just an authorized dealer. In the USA case authorized distributor is Maverick America and only dealers purchasing from Maverick America, mainly USA, Mexico and Canada dealers can honor the warranty.

It is the buyer's right to buy from were ever they like of course but then they will have to send back top the country they purchased from for any warranty.

Re: Salvimar One freedive computer

Well shit Petros. I'm glad you said something. I always prefer going to my local dive shops even if I do like Benthic. Once I convince the wife I absolutely NEED a computer I'll swing by. Anything you can tell us about it? I presume it does time, depth, temperature, timed dives, etc.

Re: Salvimar One freedive computer

Hey Alec,

The watch has 30 records of 99 dives each so essentially 30 days of diving and 99 dives per day.
