About

MAZU is the world’s first dive tracker and smartphone app designed to connect you to diving. Using sensors and Bluetooth connectivity, MAZU automatically tracks your dives and syncs wirelessly to the MAZU app on your smartphone. As you use MAZU, it learns your preferred style of diving and recommends new adventures to discover. 

Using depth, temperature, and motion sensors, MAZU automatically tracks you as you dive. 

Out of the water, MAZU syncs over Bluetooth with the MAZU app putting everything you need right at your fingertips. 

MAZU learns your personal brand of diving and recommends new dives, new adventures, or even new buddies based on your unique style. 

When you make MAZU your dive buddy, you'll be more connected to diving than ever before. 

Track every dive. Using depth, temperature, and motion sensors simultaneously, MAZU captures every aspect of your dive to give you a new level of insight. Review dive time, max depth, mean depth, ascent rate, descent rate, temperature, calories burned, dive profile and more! 

Stay connected. Your MAZU tracker connects wirelessly to your smartphone using Bluetooth Low Energy. Dive data is automatically transferred after your dive so there’s no cables or computers to worry about. Access the MAZU app on iOS or Android compatible devices. 

Discover your DiveQ. The more you use MAZU, the more it learns your personal brand of diving, creating your unique diver profile - your DiveQ. So whether you scuba or free dive, MAZU uses your DiveQ to recommend new dives, new adventures, or even new dive buddies.  

Battery that lasts. MAZU has been designed to conserve energy at every level. Using Bluetooth Low Energy, intelligent awareness, and no screen - MAZU is able to extend battery life to over 100 hours of logging or 120 dives on a single coin cell battery. Using a standard coin cell battery means you can quickly swap batteries as needed so you’ll stay connected.  

Dive deep. Using a dual axial o-ring seal design, MAZU is able to withstand pressure down to 100 m/328 ft. MAZU’s carabiner doubles as a torque wrench so you can open it and replace the o-rings if necessary. 

Stay focused. MAZU has been designed with simplicity in mind. No buttons, screens, or cables to fumble with. MAZU uses its sensors to automatically wake up when getting ready to dive and will start logging when you enter the water. Wireless connection is managed through tap control and provides LED feedback during connection or logging so you know when it's activated. 

Flexible options. Designed to be flexible, MAZU can be mounted however you need. Using the included silicone case and carabiner, MAZU can be easily clipped to your gear. MAZU can be mounted on your wrist, arm, or wherever is convenient. 

Be social. Find buddies matching your DiveQ through the MAZU app or quickly share your latest diving adventure through your favorite social media. MAZU puts everything you need to connect right at your fingertips. 

         
 

We've made it our mission to connect more people to diving and the ocean.   

A passion for diving and exploring the ocean across continents brought us together in 2017 when we set out to simplify the way we use dive technology today. It started with talking to divers about technology and what’s most important to them. Since then we’ve spent countless hours developing the electrical, mechanical, and industrial designs followed by iterations of prototypes and custom circuit boards. After successful tests at depth in Sydney and San Diego, we are ready to proceed to final manufacture - but now we need your help.  

Please join us in connecting with the ocean. - James & Peter

It all started with two divers setting out to connect more people to diving and the ocean but its grown since then! Thank you to the team and all the divers who have helped us get here! 

A special thanks to Laura Shaw and Kaley Waring for all of their love and support through the countless hours we've spent bringing MAZU to Kickstarter. We couldn't have done it without you! 

Risks and challenges

MAZU development has been moving forward at an incredible pace since the original idea was born in 2017. We have designed, manufactured and assembled custom circuit boards and successfully tested MAZU at depth. We are now ready to move into full scale manufacturing with our suppliers across the globe.

App development remains as the largest outstanding deliverable. We have working hardware that can communicate with the phone but are still working to finalize the app and submit for review to Google and Apple.

We are committed to keeping our backers up to date - you'll be in the loop as we uncover and resolve project challenges throughout the rest of the development process.

Thank you for your support.
