Designed and built by an Italian manufacturer entirely, the instrument has a high definition screen with a large numerical display which includes a battery life along with visual and audio alarms that can be accessed by a three-button interface. Based on a new algorithm of the Haldane model, the instrument can be used in nitrox, air or in gauge modes. There are many other features such as deep stop option, a user replacable battery, 60 dive log book backlit display along with an optional PC/Mac interface.
Audible alarms deliver critical information as well as peace-of-mind during the dive. The Giotto can also be fully re-set after each use, making it an excellent choice for rental departments. It has a new algorithm created through a collaboration between Cressi and Bruce Wienke based on the Haldane model, integrated with RGBM factors for safe decompression calculations in repetitive multi-day dives and with mixtures. The software handles two different hyper-oxygenated mixtures, which can be selected during the dive.
Tissues: 9 saturation half-times ranging from 2.5 to 480 minutes.
”Dive” Program: Full processing of dive data, including decompression if applicable, for every dive performed with Air or Nitrox.
