Diver reunited with his AERIS F.10 scuba watch
(DiverWire) There’s one more happy diver in the world today thanks to the efforts of a local dive store in Hawaii. During a dive earlier this month, PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer Chris Knight from Aaron’s Dive Shop in Kailua came across some “dive treasure” at Shark’s Cove dive site, North Shore, Hawaii – a perfectly good, fully functioning AERIS F.10 Freediving Computer Watch. The F.10 is a computer designed by free divers and is used almost exclusively for this growing sport.
Knight contacted AERIS officials for some help tracking down the owner. Despite the fact that the dive watch was never registered by the owner, AERIS representatives went out of their way to track him down. They contacted the dive shop that had sold the watch two years previously to look up the original receipt, and even went so far as to check on the local Hawaiian craigslist.org website lost and found section. Within only three days, AERIS and Chris were able to reunite the dive computer with a very happy owner, Derek, an experienced freediver from Kailua, Hawaii. Understandably, Derek was very pleased to have his $429 dive computer returned to him so quickly!
Derek has been freediving at popular Hawaii dive sites such as the Corsair airplane wreck using this F-10 dive computer. Visit the AERIS website for more details about the AERIS F.10 dive computer.
