Divers and Diver Profiles

    This article explains how the concept of divers work in Apnealizer

    All dives belong to a diver. When you download new dives (from your dive computer or an import file) they will normally be tagged with the default diver. Every instance of Apnealizer has a default diver which represents the main user of the app.

    The default diver is marked with the black icon on the sidebar. Divers with a grey icon are guest divers meaning any other imported diver that is not the default diver.

    If you are downloading dives for a friend then it is easy to create a new diver that you can tag the newly downloaded the dives to.

    Diver profiles

    When you import dives form other users, you will also import the diver profiles that belong to those dives. Other peoples dives will therefore never interfere with your own dives.
