This time, under the guidance of Mr. Yazawa, who teaches at this school, we will have them try diving. While enjoying diving sports in various ways, we will see the performance of “HUAWEI WATCH Ultimate”. The “HUAWEI WATCH Ultimate” shining on Mr. Yazawa’s wrist is also cool.

Serious specifications that support serious diving

By the way, diving can be broadly divided into two types:free diving” and dive in earnest while carrying a cylinder.scuba divingThe latter is more serious and allows for longer dives.

“HUAWEI WATCH Ultimate”water depth 100mIt is capable of diving up to and has passed the double test of ISO 22810 waterproof standard and EN13319 diving equipment standard. At a depth of 100m, not only recreational diving but also academic diving will come into view, but the specs are enough to cover that.

By the way, most smartwatches are waterproof for daily life or “OK ​​for swimming in shallow water”, and smartwatches that can dive to a depth of 100m are too serious.

Therefore, even the installed apps are abundant and full-fledged. If you turn on the diving function from the side button, the support function according to the mode will be activated.Colorful AMOLED displayBy adoption, visibility in the water is perfect, too.

An example of a feature is that when you dive, you will ascend rapidly.decompression sicknessYou may experience symptoms. The way to avoid this is to ascend slowly,If it rises rapidly, send an alert from your smartwatchYou can also set There are many types of reminders, such as audio buzzers and motors.

Diving logs can be checked using the app on the smartphone side. Looking at the above log, from diving to a depth of nearly 10m to rising,rise time too fastis displayed. If you realize that you were a little early, it should be a reference for your next dive. It seems that the ascent speed is hard to understand if it is a bodily sensation.

In addition to water depth, water temperature can also be recorded. This time I dived into the heated pool, so the water temperature was warm. The water temperature is also an index for choosing the thickness of the wetsuit, and it is also effective in the sense of recording the climate during the diving season.

By the way, divingPost-dive careis also important. This is because nitrogen remains in the body after scuba diving, and it is considered NG to board an airplane in this state. The reason is that nitrogen in the body becomes bubbles due to the difference in air pressure, which puts pressure on the blood vessels.

The HUAWEI WATCH Ultimate can even tell you how many hours after you’ve finished diving before you can board a plane. Professor Yazawa also said,It is convenient to see the number of hours before boardingIt’s a professional endorsement.

High robustness is reliable even for everyday use.and cool

One of the reasons why “HUAWEI WATCH Ultimate” achieves high waterproofness is the material of the case.amorphous zirconiumThe case is made of a material that is stronger and more corrosion resistant than titanium or stainless steel. It’s tough enough to withstand a Mars rover drill!

You may think that Ultimate is too much for me… However, in terms of everyday use, it supports 24-hour health management (heart rate, blood oxygen concentration, sleep level, stress level).excellent healthcare watchBut there is.
