Default iPhone scubacapsule dive computer

I came across this in a dive magazine, it sounds like a really good idea but I don't know about taking my 64gb iPhone 4s for a swim and flooding it out.

What are your thoughts?

Not sure what your iPhone has to do with it. That's not an App, that's a separate stand-alone unit. Got nothing to do with an iPhone.

I haven't seen enough info anywhere to tell wheather they are selling the ipod/iphone with the case or if you just buy the case. Looks to me like this company has a lot of half-baked ideas, which may or may not work or ever make it to production.
Cool Idea if it they can make it functional. I wouldn't put an iphone in it either way....its a waste .....i'd just put an ipod touch in it and save some money.

What I read says it's a dive computer nothing to do with being a case. It's not in production as of now. I would wait until it sells and read some reports before wasting bucks on a questionable product. It does sound really great if it's as good as it sounds.

Dude, you put your iPod/iPhone in it, it's got everything to do with it.

"Half baked ideas" is right, I wonder where the imagination and reality meet?

I think it would be cool to be able to text the bubble watcher if needed like: nothing down here, heading 27 degrees N to see what we can find. Then again maybe there isn't any signal at 100+ feet.

Well that's $1000 total, a lot of us already have iPhones so about $600 more.
It seems a lot like a to good to be true gadget or gimmick, but if it works it'll change dive computers for ever I would think.

Do a search on scubaboard. One of the makers of the product answers many questions. It works with the iphone4/ 4s/ and ipod touch. The tec and pro models are 10 gas capable.

They are supposed to be in production this quarter.

I would definentley wait and let someone else test it

Certainly seems like a great product, if it works. My only worry is the crash factor of smart phones. I would hate to be mid-deco and "crash!"

My phone doesn't really crash but it does cause some frustration.
The alarms and timers run in the background so maybe the app will be able to keep up with your actions even if ya would encounter a problem/glitch.
