Interview with Alexey Vlaskin & Landell Archer
Today’s interview is with Alexey Vlaskin & Landell Archer, founders of Divebud: a new technology to improve on the concept of a dive watch! Have you ever got lost in the moment while at the bottom of the sea? Ever been at the end of your breath hold but then that fish you’ve been looking for shows up? This can quickly become a recipe for disaster! Divebud aims to eliminate this worry! It is a programmable device that can analyze, set alarms and track your performance underwater. Been down for too long? You’ll get a beep to remind you. Been on the surface for long enough? It’ll beep and tell you! We LOVE innovative products like this, no matter what your stance on using technology in diving is, we 100% support creators like this.
