Sea-Doo GTI Sea Scooter Review

Sea Doo GTI Sea Scooter

Over the years, we have seen some big changes in the technology and electronics market and it has impacted a number of industries. For example, the scuba diving and snorkelling industry has seen a number of gadgets and watches that can be used by divers in order to become more efficient. However, there is a new product that seems to be making waves in the waters – the Sea-Doo GTI Sea Scooter.

 

In essence, this is a dive ‘propulsion’ vehicle for all those who spend time in the water. At peak performance, the device moves along at around 2.5 miles per hour and can go up to 100 feet deep. Of course, there is sufficient protection in place so that the internal electronics are kept hidden from the water which makes it an extremely useful device.

 

As you can see, this is a clever development and people who have bought the item seem to be loving the idea. Since going on sale, many divers have noted how it makes diving easier than ever before and also adds a new dimension to under-water sports. With a device like this, it all falls apart if the battery life isn’t that good but Sea-Doo has done a great job with the GTI Sea Scooter. On a full charge, the scooter will last for around two hours and even makes the most of adjustable buoyancy control. In terms of the charge itself, it is advised that the device is charged overnight for the very first time. Thereafter, it will take around 4-5 hours to receive the two hours of battery life.

On the whole, divers who have tried the product seem to be enjoying it. However, there are many that have noted that it shouldn’t be used by those who are looking for a professional device. For example, if your job would rely on something like this, you might want to investigate the market a little further. Whilst it propels nicely, the overall consensus seems to be that it is best for those who are just enjoying their time at the beach and are enjoying a good scuba diving session rather than professionals who rely on equipment.

 

In terms of the price, it falls somewhat in the middle of the market at around $400. Although there are many cheaper options, there are also some that are more expensive and don’t have the positive reviews that can be found with this item. If you’re looking for something to improve your scuba diving or snorkelling, this could be a fantastic choice. If you’re looking for something a little more professional, it might be worth comparing with other products in the market.

 

Overall, the Sea-Doo GTI Sea Scooter has a solid design and will move you along the water nicely. If you’re looking for your first foray into this type of product, this would make for a good first sea scooter. If however, you are looking for a water scooter that is both safe and easy to use for your kids, then I suggest taking a look at the popular Sea Doo Dolphin Sea Scooter.

Sea Doo Dolphin Sea Scooter Review http://www.myaquascooter.com/sea-doo-dolphin-sea-scooter/ Mon, 22 Aug 2016 13:43:51 +0000 http://myaquascooter.com/?p=59

 

The Sea Doo Dolphin Sea Scooter is the perfect gift for your kids. Although the age recommendations are for children over the age of 7, you will find that under strict supervision, even four year olds can operate it with ease. On the flip side, the Dolphin slows down quite a bit when having to pull a heavier adult, so it would be best to invest in a more powerful model should you be buying it for your own use.

The Sea Doo Dolphin is great for swimming pools and lakes, and isn’t intended for sea use. Sea Doo really had safety in mind when they designed the dolphin. It has a floating chassis so you won’t have to worry about it ever sinking, and it’s a comforting thought to know that it will help to keep your kids afloat. In addition to the chassis, it has an auto shut-off function as well as protective grilles to ensure that it’s completely safe to use regardless of your age or experience level.

One of the first things you will notice when your Dolphin arrives is its weight. It’s an extremely light aqua scooter and can be easily carried with one hand.

It comes standard with a rechargeable battery which should allow for about 1.5 hours of fun time per charge. However, it’s important to mention that some customers have complained that the battery doesn’t last much longer than a year, while others have had no problem with the original battery after 4 years of use. So it might be a good idea to buy an additional battery just in case of the former.

You are protected with a 180 day warranty should there be a problem.

The Dolphin can reach speeds of up to 2 miles per hour, but as mentioned earlier, a 200 pound adult won’t get anywhere near this speed.

Its max depth is 15.5 feet, reinforcing the fact that it’s for pools and lakes only.

The Dolphin can safely be used in salt water pools as well.

It comes standard with a battery as well as the charger.

A great additional feature is that it comes with a GoPro mount.

Important tips to ensure the longevity of your Dolphin:

  1. PLEASE make sure that you close the top properly so that it doesn’t start taking on water.
  2. Charge the scooter EXACTLY as instructed.

Following these tips consistently will eliminate most of the potential problems.

This is an excellent toy for your kids, aside from the hours of fun and enjoyment they will have with it, it’s also great for teaching them to hold their breath underwater and most of all, it will get them playing and loving the outdoors. For some extra fun, you can buy these Swim Thru Rings with the dolphin.
