RICHMOND, British Columbia – March 24, 2017 – Shearwater Research Inc. is excited to announce that Shearwater Cloud is now available as an Open Beta. With cloud computing Shearwater divers will be able to link their network of mobile devices and share information between them.

With Shearwater Cloud you are able to review and edit your dive logs with more descriptive fields than in Shearwater Desktop. Additionally, the app is also capable of performing firmware updates and changing the language in your dive computer. For Shearwater users that have been experiencing issues connecting to Shearwater Desktop with Windows 7, the Shearwater Cloud addresses this problem.

The app is currently supported for iOS (10.0+) and Android (5.0+) and compatible with the Perdix AI, Perdix, and Petrel 2 dive computers. The desktop version of Shearwater Cloud for Windows and Mac will be released in the future which will offer additional support to Petrel 1, Predator, and NERD.

Shearwater Cloud is available for download immediately on the Google Play Store and the iOS App Store is currently pending approval and will be available shortly. You can navigate to either of these downloads by visiting Shearwater’s website or visiting the store on your device.

If you experience any bugs, crashes, or connection issues, or are interested in giving feedback to the development team, please send them through ScubaBoard, our Feedback Form, or email beta@shearwater.com.

  2. When choose Water Temp in Celsius, the values are in "-" values, tho I am pretty sure i was diving +20C or more. In the dive log it shows like "-4C" or something.<br />-----<br />
  3. I used the Cloud today to update the firmware on my new Perdix and downloaded the test dive from the computer. Everything worked perfectly. App was downloaded from the Apple App store and I used my iPhone 7<br />-----<br />

It sends your incoming calls to voicemail. And the app needs access to your contacts list so if you would like to send a screenshot of your divelog to someone on your contacts list you don't have to type the number/email in manually. You select it from your contacts list. Android is pretty lame on explaining what a lot of their permissions do and why they need that permission.<br />-----<br />
