Product Description
 
Buddycall: The name says it all. This is one handy device that comes under the category of something you would have invented yourself. Read all about how Buddycall works below:




 Buddycall® is the right choice in signaling devices and an important piece of safety gear.

 

Scientific Divers are proud to bring you Buddycall® - a device that has revolutionizing personal underwater signaling and emergency response.

Buddycall® is a battery operated diver-to-diver signaling device that enables you to immediately attract the attention of other divers. It may be worn around your wrist like a watch or attached to other gear like a BCD.

A smart, potentially life-saving idea:

Used as a signaling device when you want to get another divers attention to point something out, check on how much air is left in their tank, or to keep in touch with a group. Buddycall® is also an important safety device that can be heard underwater for up to 100 feet - creating a wide safety and communication radius.

The fact that it operates independently of your air supply is an important safety component. In emergencies, time is critical. With Buddycall®, divers are able to alert each other instantly so precious seconds are not wasted.

As is true with all audible devices, the wearing of a hood diminishes the effective range of the Buddycall. Buddycall is designed for warm water "hoodless" diving and not for cold water diving while wearing a hood

Works even if you’re out of air:

A common life-threatening emergency involves divers running out of air, whether by gear failure or depletion. In this situation, air-powered signaling devices won’t work.

The right choice:

Other devices such as tank bangers and rattle sticks can be clumsy, inconvenient and have a limited range. In an emergency, divers can become too preoccupied or even confused to bang on their tank or shake a stick.

With Buddycall®, you simply push a button to get the life-saving attention you need. (As is true with all audible devices, the wearing of a hood diminishes the effective range of the Buddycall®).

Hands free emergency operation:

It works by making a pleasant but attention grabbing sound. Activated by pressing a clearly visible button, a diver can use a short burst of sound to get a buddy’s attention or leave it in the ON position for hands-free use in an emergency. Use simple codes to pass your messages easily.

Ideal for recreational divers and instructors:

Buddycall® is designed for both diving and snorkeling. Recreational divers use them for a more enjoyable and safer dive experience while dive instructors and dive masters find it to be of significant benefit because of its ability to enhance student and instructor communication. It increases a student's comfort level and confidence because they will have a reliable means to communicate with, and if need be, alert their instructors in an emergency. Skin divers young and old will use Buddycall to help keep the group together and to summon the attention of fellow divers.

 

 

  • Communicate easily with your buddies
  • Get fast attention in an emergency
  • Battery powered
  • Audible up to 100 feet / 30 meters

Frequently asked questions
1. What’s the underwater range of the Buddycall or how far away can one get from a buddy or group and still be heard?
  • In open water, most people can clearly hear it from a distance of 100 feet / 30 meters, some a bit less and for most a lot farther.
  • In shallow sheltered water up to about 15 feet in depth, most can hear it clearly up to 150 feet / meters.
  • As is true with all audible devices, the wearing of a hood diminishes the effective range of the Buddycall. Buddycall is designed for warm water "hoodless" diving and not for cold water diving while wearing a hood.
2. Does it work as an above surface signaling device?
  • The Buddycall is audible on the surface for a distance up to 50 feet depending on surface conditions.
  • Good for getting a buddy’s attention if they’re close, but it’s not designed as an above surface signaler and shouldn’t be relied upon as one.
 
4. What effect does the Buddycall have on fish?
  • None, it has no affect on fish. It’s believed the sound frequency is above what fish can hear.
5. Does the Buddycall scare or attract sharks?
  • Testing has been carried out in New Zealand and the Bahamas with a variety of sharks and it has zero effect. It’s believed this will hold true for all sharks.
6. What happens if the maximum depth rating of 110 ft / 33m is exceeded?
  • The unit can leak, rendering it useless and voiding the warranty.
  • At 134 ft of depth the top of the case collapses, destroying the unit.
7. Does the Buddycall work if a diver is wearing a hood?
  • Marginally, wearing a hood greatly deminishes it’s range. It’s like trying to hear something while wearing earmuffs and it really doesn’t work.
8. How does the switch operate?
  • Press the button and the unit will turn on and run continuously until you turn it off again. You control the length of the signal. Use a short burst to get someone's attention, or leave it on for hands-free signaling in an emergency.
9. How long will the batteries last?
  • With the supplied batteries it will run continuously for up to 20 minutes which is good for around 60 dives. When it's time to replace the batteries, doing so with quality, silver oxide batteries will approximately double the run time.
