Casio Releases Logosease Compact Underwater Walkie-Talkie

for Scuba Divers

Wide Range of Models for Novice and Veteran Divers to Enjoy Underwater Conversation

Yamagata, Japan, 14th March, 2014 — Yamagata Casio Co., Ltd., a subsidiary of Casio Computer Co., Ltd., announced today the release of Logosease compact, walkie-talkies that enable scuba divers to enjoy underwater conversation. The Logosease lineup is being released through Javy’s International Ltd, a distributor in Hong Kong and Macau.

 

Divers usually communicate underwater by using hand signals or writing on slates. By attaching the Logosease walkie-talkie to a diving mask however, they can converse even with an air regulator in the mouth. The handy device is small enough to fit into a pocket.

 

Yamagata Casio offers a lineup of four Logosease models perfect for a wide range of customers. These include leisure divers, diving instructors, and professional divers performing undersea operations. A surface station is also available for communication with divers wearing underwater Logosease units.

  LGS-RG005BA: Basic model for novice divers in a set of two units specially designed for two-way communication

  LGS-RG004: Advanced model with voice recording and other features for veteran divers

  LGS-RG004-SAR: Rescue model with a wider transmission range ideal for public agencies conducting life saving operations
