WARNING
This computer has bugs. Although we haven’t found them all
yet, they are there. It is certain that there are things that this
computer does that either we didn’t think about, or planned for
it to do something different. Never risk your life on only one
source of information. Use a second computer or tables. If you
choose to make riskier dives, obtain the proper training and
work up to them slowly to gain experience.

This computer will fail. It is not whether it will fail but when it will
fail. Do not depend on it. Always have a plan on how to handle
failures. Automatic systems are no substitute for knowledge and
training.

No technology will keep you alive. Knowledge, skill, and


practiced procedures are your best defense (except for not
doing the dive, of course).

1. Introduction
The Shearwater Perdix is an advanced dive computer for all
types of diving. This manual covers operation of the Nitrox
Recreational Mode.

Please take the time to read this manual. Your safety may
depend on your ability to read and understand the Perdix
displays.

Do not use this manual as a substitute for proper dive training


and never dive beyond your training. What you don’t know
can hurt you.

1.1. Features
• Up to 3 Nitrox gases (includes Air)
• Clear layout optimized for Air and Nitrox diving
• Optional safety stops
• Nitrogen loading bar graph
• Configurable bottom row
• No-Decompression Limit (NDL) planner
• Bühlmann ZHL-16C with gradient factors deco model
• Decompression planner
All dives have a risk of DCI
• Maximum operating depth warnings
• Switchable to technical open and closed circuit modes It is important to understand that all dives come with

• Supports Bluetooth Smart for connection to iOS devices staying well within no-decompression limits.
and Bluetooth Classic for connection to desktop
computers, laptops, and Android devices. No dive computer or decompression model can
guarantee a zero risk of DCI. Education and following
established procedures are your best defenses.

We recommend carrying dive insurance and having a


plan to deal with emergencies.

4. The Main Screen


The Main Screen (FIGURE 8) shows the most important
information for Air and Nitrox diving.

It is divided into three sections: Basic dive info,


decompression info, and the configurable bottom row.

4.1. Basic Dive Info


The Basic Dive area shows:
• The current depth (in feet or meters)
• The dive time in minutes and seconds

When on the surface, the dive time is replaced by a surface


interval timer. Also, a battery gauge will appear in this area.

4.2. Decompression Info


FIGURE 8 The Main Screen
The Decompression area shows:
• Safety stops (if enabled)
• Decompression stops
• No-Decompression Limit (NDL) in minutes
• Nitrogen loading bar graph
• Warnings for maximum operating depth (MOD) and CNS
