In case of need you can activate the emergency function of SharkNet: the device will start flashing and will transmit your position and depth to the contacts you chose and/or to the personnel of the Dive Center.
In order to activate the emergency function:
- If you are at the surface, double tap the device (it’s like a double click in the computer’s mouse);
- If you are underwater, after the double tap, send the device to the surface either with its own buoyancy or with your emergency buoy: once floating, the device will transmit the alarm.
Accidental activation is difficult but, if it happens, just double tap the device again. It will stop flashing and, if it already sent the alarm, it will let everybody know that that was a mistake and you are actually OK!
