Excited about bLU3? We are too!
Be the first to know about events, updates and the release of NOMAD.
How do you pronounce bLU3?
“Blue” like the color. The number ‘3’ is a reference to our sister company, Brownie’s Third lung. It also represents the three models – NEMO, NOMAD & NEPTUNE.
How does it work?
bLU3 models are Surface-Supplied Air (SSA) devices – a breathing air compressor floats above the surface and pumps air down to the diver. Our variable speed and smart regulator technology tell the compressor exactly when to pump air, improving user experience and preserving battery life.
How much does NOMAD cost?
There is no published price for NOMAD because we are in the Pre-Production stage. Right now we’re focused on making NOMAD the best SSA (surface-supplied air) dive system in the world. Right now we estimate the retail price to be $1999 but our team is working hard to make NOMAD as price-competitive as possible. Join our monthly newsletter to keep up with our progress!
How deep can I dive NOMAD?
NOMAD has a max depth of 35 feet, allowing users the opportunity to enjoy our waters’ first atmosphere to the fullest.
When will NOMAD be released?
We’re working hard to make sure NOMAD is available by Summer 2019.
Can I pre-order NOMAD?
We’ll be launching a pre-order program soon. Join our monthly newsletter to be the first to find out!
Is there another bLU3 product besides NOMAD?
Yes! It’s called NEMO.
Our goal with NEMO is to bridge the gap between snorkeling and diving with a device that’s priced affordably. It is a single diver unit that can support 1 diver to 10 feet. NEMO is in development and very close to being finalized, we believe it will hit the market before NOMAD does. Learn more
How much will NEMO cost?
NEMO is estimated to retail around $500.
When will NEMO be available?
Catch it early when we launch our crowdfunding campaign in August. After that, NEMO may not be available for purchase until December. Subscribe to the newsletter to be updated when the campaign launches.
How does the user know when the battery dies?
Thanks to our underwater battery alarm, the user will know BEFORE the battery dies so that he/she can make a safe ascent.
How do you recharge the battery?
NOMAD comes with an AC charger that can be used in a wall outlet, or on the go with our optional solar panel. The battery fully recharges in under 3 hours. We can supply adapters for our global customers. NEMO uses 20700 cell batteries that are recharged externally – these can be found in most battery and electronics stores.
Can I swap out the battery to dive longer?
Absolutely. We’ll have spare batteries available for purchase and the swap out will be a simple task.
Are bLU3 products safe?
Our customers’ wellbeing is our highest priority. We have 38 years of experience in the SSA (or “hookah diving”) industry. What most people don’t realize is this method of diving has been around for decades, with very few incidents. Businesses such as Brownie’s Third Lung and SNUBA have been successful in providing incredible underwater experiences while keeping people safe, and we will too. Here’s how.
How can I get involved?
You can help us out big time by following us on social media and sharing our updates! If you want to take it a step further, we’re launching our brand ambassador program in June 2018. Learn more: Brand Ambassador
Can I be a test-diver?
As our models are still in the development stage, only our team will be testing them to max depth. However, we are considering hosting dive events in South Florida where our fans can test bLU3 models at snorkel depths (0-5 feet). Make sure to follow us on Facebook and Instagram to find out about upcoming events.
Can I be a distributor/dealer?
Although we’re in the development stages, we welcome early conversations about distribution and dealer opportunities. Visit our Partners page for more information.
