Although it doesn’t look much different cosmetically, it has been completely re-designed from the inside. This new generation dive computer features a more powerful microprocessor, faster compass response time and new user options that automatically adjusting the screen brightness. Among these added features is the ability to switch between 6 different gas mixes, as opposed to only 3 with the first generation Cobalt.
However, it still stayed true to one of the most important feature of the Cobalt which is its self-explanatory user interface and menu system that can be learned in a few of minutes.
In this review of the Atomic Cobalt 2 we are going to look more in-depth at some of these great features and how they can benefit you, as well as what other diver’s are saying about this great dive computer.
An easy to understand user interface also help reduce user errors when programming a computer, which can intern prevent serious injuries, and that’s where the Atomic Cobalt 2 excels.
It uses a self-explanatory and easy to interpret drop down menu to operate and program the computer, and has 4 easy to press magnetic buttons. You simply use the “UP” and “DOWN” buttons to highlight menu items, then simply press the “SELECT” button to go into the highlighted screen. To get back to subsequent menus or home screen simply press the “BACK” button repetitively.
What’s great about this dive computer is that you can see a brief description of the menu item on the settings screen which makes the computer easy to set up with out even having to read the user manual.
