The Shearwater Research Teric is a full technical dive computer with recreational divers in mind. Out of the box, the Teric includes open-circuit and closed-circuit Air, Nitrox and Trimix mixed gas functionality along with a three-axis tilt-compensated digital compass. It has Recreational, Gauge, OC Tech and CC/BO modes with up to 5 Air, Nitrox or Trimix gases. It also has a new Freediving Mode with configurable sampling/ logging rates and ascent/descent indicators suitable for freediving.
The Shearwater Teric has 4 buttons and incorporates situational adaptable logic to the menus and buttons making the Teric very intuitive. It is also very configurable. You can configure one of the 4 buttons to give you single press access to different tools like compass, stopwatch, countdown timer, etc. The Teric supports wireless gas pressure integration with tracking tank gas pressures (optional transmitters required) and can monitor up to two pressure transmitters in two different tanks. There are haptic and audible alarms that can be disabled to prevent annoying other divers in the vicinity.
The Shearwater Teric has been designed with a wireless rechargeable battery and includes a wireless induction charger stand. The expected life of the built-in battery is five (5) years and the battery can be replaced at one of the Shearwater factory authorised service centres. Although Shearwater recommends using their charging stand, the Teric can also be charged by the flat mats that support the Qi wireless-charging standard (which includes the latest iPhones and many Android phones).
The Shearwater Teric offers an information screen utilising a 35 mm (1.39 in) full-colour AMOLED display. Brightness levels are user adjustable and accessible with just one button press. During a decompression dive, the Teric provides complete information displays of all required stop times. The Teric can provide time-to-surface based on "look ahead" at planned gas switches. Multiple gas definition presets are supported with any combination of oxygen, nitrogen and helium. The Teric will NOT "lockout" after a missed stop or ascent rate violation.
After the dive, the Teric communicates via next-generation Bluetooth Smart Ready™ to connect with the Shearwater Cloud dive log manager, which is compatible with MS Windows, OS X, iOS and Android devices. The dive log manager supports log downloads and firmware updates via the Bluetooth wireless interface of the Teric.Transmitter Options
The Shearwater Teric base price does not include a tank pressure transmitter because you may not wish to use the AI feature, or may already own a compatible transmitter. Shearwater Research tells us that as long as the transmitter is marked with "FCC ID MH8A" on the body then the transmitter, regardless of the brand, will also work with their Teric, Perdix AI and NERD 2 model air integrated dive computers. The first stage regulator tank-pressure wireless transmitter supplied by Shearwater Research is actually manufactured by Pelagic Pressure Systems. Pelagic has been supplying those same OEM transmitters to various dive computer manufacturers such as Aeris, Aqualung, Hollis, and Oceanic for many years.
The Teric is capable of wirelessly connecting to either one or two optional transmitters giving the diver ability to monitor up to two tank pressures and allowing for side-mount diving. It's also capable of calculating the Gas Time Remaining (GTR) on one assigned tank. Air integration is optional for all modes, from OC Rec to CC/BO. The tank pressure(s), in PSI or BAR, and GTR can be displayed to the customisable slots on the main display screen or accessed through the underlying information screens.What's in the Box
