iGills is a waterproof case that turns your iPhone into a dive computer, underwater still and video camera, digital dive log, and more. Offering a lot more than just protection, the case enables your iPhone to be taken down to depths of 130 feet. Scuba divers can use their device and an accompanying app using a six button interface. There are precision depth and temperature sensors, a digital compass, and a flashlight. You can access the iPhone’s camera for underwater stills and video, and there is an auto-populating digital dive log with dive locations, profiles, and photo album generation.
The case and app support multiple diving modes, including Air, Nitrox and Gauge, as well as ascent rate indication, nitrogen loading tracking over multiple dives and a depth alarm, which allow the smartphone to replace other technologies the diver would usually require. The iGills case is shipping soon and is priced at $329.99. Check out the video below to see it in action:
