I’ve been diving the mares Sirius computer for a about 20 dives (recreational dives) so far. I am still getting used to the functions and settings, but I’m loving it so far. The dive screens are easy to see and use while diving. Selectable dive screens to choose what info you want to see on your dive is very handy. I cant wait to see your review after you dive it in Egypt.

Are you Sirius ? For that price, shearwater is obvious choice

Outside of the USA / Canada, Shearwater is a good 40% more expensive than this

Spend the $100 more to get the Teric, this is way behind the times.

It’s £400 + difference in price in the UK. Before you take the air integration into account, another £100 difference. So it’s not directly comparable to the Teric.

@Nicky Morley In the US the computer itself is $100 difference between the two. Something is amiss.

Here in italy is a 500€ difference (800 for the sirius and 1300 for the teric)

@Jonah Kowall Shearwater is Canadian so they hardly cost anything to import to the USA, hence you get good prices. Once it’s exported trans atlantic, the price of Shearwater goes up alot.

You can upload dives to laptop / desktop, but it’s clunky. Does work though. Be careful of errors with dive planning (deco planning) as deco stop times change (go forward then back and the stop time changes). This might of been picked up on the firmware update, but beware the firmware…..my Sirius is back to the shop because it locked up during the firmware update.

Also, the App loads a horrible graph that doesn’t fit the screen properly in landscape view (I have a pixel 6), increments on graph are not clearly defined. If the drop point cursor line had time stamp info it would make a lot more sense and be of some use.

Hi, how do you upload to laptop/desktop? Only been able to syncing with the Mares app so far.

Bluetooth is a great addition compared to the horrible dongles Mares had for some of there other and older computers.

The compass has an interesting feature a peer instructor who brought a Sirius showed me: (From Mares Sirius Manual page 8) – “you can set a reference bearing. This is useful for instance if you are on a boat and there is a landmark on the shore that you can use for alignment to reach a specific spot on that dive site. A triangle will appear to indicate the set bearing. Additional symbols will appear as well: squares at 90 degrees, triangles at 120 degrees and two parallel lines at 180 degrees, as an aid in navigation for square, triangular and reciprocal courses. Once underwater, align the arrow and start swimming in that direction.”

Looks great especially in person, though still like my Teric 🙂

Looking at the strap I’d have that off and replace with a NATO style strap straightaway. But other than that, looks OK… Also can’t believe the wireless charge pad isn’t USB-C. But not a deal breaker…

Micro-USB charging cable in 2023? Seriously? It’s not a big issue but what’s wrong with Mares?

Could be because it’s cheaper to produce using micro usb instead of type C. Less overall cost to the end user. At least it’s a charging pad where you plug it in and leave it.

@Alex Srejic Half it’s price dive computers use USB-C nowadays. I think the real problem is when forget to bring charging cable(Shouldn’t but happens), you might find all your friends use USB-C and no chance to charge.

@Ke Chen I think you can use whatever wireless charging pad on the market to charge it. So you can use one with usb-c.

Just to confirm, there’s really no way of using it for freediving? That’s kind of a missed opportunity from Mares, given the small size and neat design.

I was surprised also, but I couldn’t find any settings on the computer or in the manual and the Sirius is not listed under freediving on Mares’ website.
Maybe one day they’ll include an apnea mode in an update…
