A new French innovation is coming to the market with a brilliant idea: open scuba diving to the field of personalized decompression. To do this, a team of experienced engineers worked for many years on this issue to design a unique and patented technology consisting of an acoustic sensor connected to a smartphone application and a server with specialized data analysis and processing. O'Dive is very easy to use, once your dive is completed, you will have to position the sensor under your cavicule and make two sets of 20 second measurements. Once completed, the data is passed to the O'Dive's servers for analysis and returned to your application. It is up to you to evaluate and improve your diving conditions to minimize the risk of decompression sickness.

Are you tired of your snorkel filling up with water all the time? Do you constantly want to breathe fresh and fresh air? The time for innovations in the snorkel market has finally arrived. The Ameo Powerbreather snorkel is the solution to both these issues. With its new system of watertight valves, the water is unable to enter the snorkel duct. In addition, the air conveyed by two ducts located at each end of the head is expelled via a valve located at the mouth. You are thus guaranteed to have a fresh air not loaded with carbon dioxide. This product is perfect for swimming in the pool, for swimming in white water and of course for snorkeling. Ameo offers 3 different models according to your needs.
