I see it's been discussed here, but any other information? I have a Peregrine already, I want the air integration and I'm on the fence between Perdix and Teric. One standout I see is the Teric formfactor makes it possible to double as a watch on trips. Someone did point out the Perdix takes standard batteries.

I'm a little late to the party but being 145# and 6'1" It is far to large and bulky to wear everyday. I did notice that one of the guys on the YouTube channel that does Divers React wears his casually.
Waiting for a extended thread to unfold on Scubaboard divers reacting to “Divers React” guy wearing his Teric causally…

the Perdix does NOT have the vibrate function I'm so used to on the Peregrine.
shearwater’s comparison chart shows “vibration and audible beeps” for Teric—is the difference in how configurable it is?

A DC is like life saving gear. Also would you want to risk knocking it or cracking its screen in some accident by chance in the week before a dive vacation after you have spend a few 1000 bucks in flight and trip bookings? For me the gear for a specialist hobby stays protected in home storage until it’s time to pack.

I sold my Peregrine a month back, but last time I checked in the settings I don't recall a setting to configure how the vibrate function actually erm, vibrates... Also the Peregrine was vibrate only, no hardware for audible beeps etc.

On my Teric I can configure between audible and vibrate (or both) and also configure the type of vibrate such as 2 short, 3 short etc. I have to admit I haven't played with this setting much other than setting it to 3 vibrates. I'm sure it's detailed in the manual somewhere.

The Perdix does not contain the hardware for vibrate.

I’ve had my Teric for almost 4 years and I wear it every day. It reminds me of what I’d rather be doing, and I’ve never lost it since I always know where it is!

I want to get one. Have tried on a friend’s, and it fits just fine for everyday use. Way I see it, there’s no way I’m not using it as an everyday watch for how much it costs. LOL

I would not use it as a daily watch. I took a look at the literature and no where does Shearwater advertise or suggest it be a daily wear.
I would be apprehensive about accelerated wear/tear and the inherent possibility of a failure during a dive.

I know - I'm a party pooper.

Best thing is to just ask Shearwater if they recommend using it as a daily watch.

Too bulky for daily wear, and missing too many of the features I use on my Apple Watch. It's a very nice dive computer, though.
