  • Page 3: Safety Considerations

    SAFETY CONSIDERATIONS You must carefully read and understand this entire manual before using your Galileo. Diving has many inherent risks. Even if you follow the instructions of this manual in a careful manner, it is still possible that you may be seriously injured or die from decompression sickness, oxygen toxicity or some other inherent risk of scuba diving with Nitrox or compressed air.

    Important notice to individuals with pacemakers, defi brillators or other implanted electronic devices. Individuals who have a pacemaker use the UWATEC Galileo dive computer at their own risk. Before starting use, we recommend a maximal exercise stress test under a doctor’s supervision. The test is to ensure the safety and reliability of the simultaneous use of the pacemaker and the Galileo dive computer.
