DECOMPRESSION MODEL
The programs within the Wisdom 3 simulate the absorption of nitrogen into the body by using a mathematical model. This model is merely a way to
apply a limited set of data to a large range of experiences. The Wisdom 3 dive computer model is based upon the latest research and experiments in
decompression theory. Still, using the Wisdom 3, just as using the U.S. Navy (or other) No Decompression Tables, is no guarantee of avoiding
decompression sickness (i.e., the bends). Every diver’s physiology is different, and can even vary from day to day. No machine can predict how your
body will react to a particular dive profile.

Wisdom 3 DC Manual
The following symbols are used throughout this manual to bring your attention to situations that require special
consideration. Be sure to read and follow all instructions carefully.
A WARNING is used before a procedure that will result in serious injury or death if the procedure
is not followed carefully.
A CAUTION is used before a maintenance technique that will result in damage to parts if that
technique is not followed carefully.
N
A NOTE is used to emphasize an important maintenance technique.
Throughout this manual reference is made to the term 'breathing gas'. The rationale being that the Wisdom 3 can be used
for Air dives or Nitrox dives. For clarity, these terms are defined as Breathing Gas - the gaseous mixture breathed during a dive.
Air - a breathing gas that contains approximately 21% oxygen and 79% nitrogen (nature's common nitrogen-oxygen
mixture).
Nitrox - a nitrogen-oxygen breathing gas that contains a higher fraction of oxygen (22 to 50%) than air.
WARNINGS:
• The Wisdom 3 is intended for use by recreational divers who have successfully completed a nationally
recognized course in scuba diving, and diving with enriched nitrogen-oxygen (nitrox) breathing gas
mixtures.
• It is intended only for no decompression diving, NOT intentional decompression diving.
• It must not be used by untrained persons who may not have knowledge of the potential risks and
hazards of scuba diving, and diving with enriched nitrogen-oxygen (nitrox) mixtures.
• You must obtain scuba certification, and certification in diving with enriched nitrogen-oxygen mixtures
(nitrox) before using the Wisdom 3 if you have not already done so.
• It is NOT for use by military and commercial divers.
• It should NOT be utilized for any competitive, or repetitive square wave or decompression diving, as it
is intended solely for recreational use and no decompression multilevel diving.
• As with all underwater life support equipment, improper use or misuse of this product can cause
serious injury or death.
• Never participate in sharing or swapping of a dive computer.
• Conduct your dives in such a manner so as to insure that you continuously check the computer's
proper function.
• Read and understand this owner’s manual completely before diving with the Wisdom 3.
• If you do not fully understand how to use this dive computer, or if you have any questions, you should
seek instruction in its use from your Authorized Sherwood Scuba Dealer before you utilize this product.

INTRODUCTION
Congratulations on your recent purchase of the Sherwood Wisdom 3 dive computer!
Your new Wisdom 3 uses a unique and intuitive display that represents the information you need before, during, and after the dive, laid out in a logical format based on a dive profile diagram. Information is located
where you would expect it to be.
In addition to no-decompression/decompression status, tissue loading of nitrogen, accumulation of oxygen,
and ascent rate are presented as peripheral bar graphs alongside reference indicators.
As you progress through this instruction manual, you will become familiar with the unique functions and features available.
The Wisdom 3's wide array of features are described in detail throughout the pages that follow.
The initial time that you invest becoming acquainted with the symbols and various operating modes and displays will be returned as you enjoy your underwater activities with the comfort that your familiarization affords.
As you use the Wisdom 3, remember that the rules you learned in your SCUBA course(s) still apply to the
diving you will do while using a dive computer - some will become even more important. Technology is no
substitute for common sense, and a dive computer only provides the person using it with data, not the knowledge to use it.
FEATURES AND DISPLAYS
The Wisdom 3 has two Control Buttons that allow you to activate the unit and access specific information
when you choose to see it. The Front button (Fig. 1a) is referred to as the Advance and the Side button (Fig.
1b) as the Select.
b
While on the surface, you can use the buttons to maneuver through the Wisdom 3's unique Menu System that
allows • selection of 3 Main Operating Modes (Air, Nitrox, or Gauge)
• viewing of various information displays (Last Dive, Plan Depths/Times, Dive Logs, History, etc.)
• entering of settings divided into 4 convenient categories (Basics, Alarms, Utilities, and Time)
• activation of the Backlight
• operation of an onboard Simulator
• setup for a PC interface program
a
Fig. 1 - Control Buttons
During the Dive modes, the buttons may be used to • activate the display's Backlight
• view Alternate displays of information
• acknowledge Alarms
INTUITIVE DISPLAYS
The Wisdom 3 uses 4 rows of easy to understand alpha/numeric displays and graphic icons (Fig. 2).
For example, when you enter into Special Situations, such as Decompression, High PO2, and Out of Range
modes, an UP Arrow symbol will appear as a warning to ascend to a shallower depth.
It also utilizes 3 segmented Bar Graphs to provide you with quick visual reference of Decompression status,
O2 Saturation, and Ascent speed. Their segments represent Normal, Caution, and Danger zones.
It is imperative that you understand the formats, ranges, and values of the information presented by the Wisdom 3's numeric and graphic displays to avoid any possible misunderstanding that could result in an error.

Some Alarms cannot be acknowledged. These are differentiated by 1 beep per second for 10 seconds followed by a full 3 second beep.
If an Alarm is acknowledged and the situation corrected, the Alarm will sound again if the situation occurs
again, or another Alarm situation occurs.
A single short beep is emitted after the Diagnostic check, upon automatic return to Surface Mode from Simulator Mode, upon completion of a fast battery change with calculations/settings saved, and upon change from
Delayed to Full Violation after that dive.
A red LED Warning Light located on the lower/left portion of the module is synchronized with the Audible
Alarm and will flash when the Alarm sounds. A scrolling message will also be displayed in the upper portion of the screen. The LED will turn OFF when the Alarm is acknowledged or Set OFF, however, the message will continue to scroll until the condition is cleared. In the event that another Alarm situation occurs, its
scrolling message will be displayed until it is acknowledged, at which time it will be replaced by the message
that was previously scrolling.
Reminder Alarm situations include • PO2 equal to or greater than 1.60 ATA, or the Max PO2 Alarm setting.
• Descent deeper than the Max Depth Alarm setting.
• Dive Time Remaining decreases to the Alarm setting.
• Tank Pressure decreases to the Turn Pressure Alarm setting.
Cautionary Alarm situations include • Entry into Decompression Mode
• O2 Accumulation equal to or greater than allowable per dive limit, or limit for a 24 hour period.
• Ascending above a required Decompression Stop Depth for less than 5 minutes.
• Ascent rate exceeds 60 FPM (18 MPM) when depth is greater than 60 FT (18 M), or 30 FPM (9 MPM)
at 30 FT (9 M) or shallower.
• Tank Pressure decreases to the End Pressure Alarm setting.
• Entry into Delayed or Full Violation modes (described later).

Situations in which the Alarm cannot be acknowledged include • Being above a required Decompression Stop Depth for more than 5 minutes.
• Being in Decompression that requires a Stop Depth much greater than 60 FT (18 M).
• Being on the surface for 5 minutes without completing a Decompression obligation.
BACKLIGHT
To activate the HydroGlo® Backlight while viewing displays in the Surface Mode, press both buttons simultaneously.
To activate the Backlight while viewing displays underwater, press the Front (Advance) button momentarily
(< 2 seconds).
The screen will be illuminated for 10 seconds. Press the button(s) again to activate as desired.
The Backlight is disabled if the button(s) is held depressed longer than 10 seconds or during a Low Battery
Condition.
N
NOTE: Sherwood Scuba recommends that you carry primary and backup dive lights
when conducting dives that could include low light situations.
POWER SUPPLY
The Wisdom 3 utilizes one (1) 3 volt, CR2450 Lithium Battery that should provide from 300 dive hours of
operation if you conduct one 1 - hour dive each time the unit is activated, to over 600 dive hours of operation
if you conduct two or more dives each time the unit is activated.
Battery Indicator
A Battery Indicator (icon) provides an indication of Low Battery Condition. The Battery Indicator (Fig. 8a)
will only appear on the Surface TIME (or WET), DATA, and FLY/SAT screens. It will not be displayed on
other surface display screens or during Dive Modes.
TIME
SURFACE
NITROX
Low Battery Condition
• Voltage level is checked upon activation and every 4.5 minutes during operation.
• Once 75% of full power is consumed, the Indicator will appear on the TIME (or WET) screen as a
a
warning that the Battery is to be changed prior to conducting any further dives with the unit.
• If a Low Battery Condition exists when the unit is activated (by pressing the button), the Battery icon
will appear flashing once per second for 5 seconds followed by shutdown of the unit.
• If the button is not pressed to activate the unit prior to a dive, and a Low Battery Condition exists, the
Low Battery icon will appear flashing as a warning upon descent past 4 feet (1.2 meters). No other information will be displayed and the unit will not enter Dive Mode.
• If the unit did not display the Low Battery icon 'prior to' entering the Dive Mode, and a Low Battery
Condition occurs during the dive, there will be sufficient Battery power to maintain unit operation
for the 'remainder of that dive'. The Low Battery icon will appear upon surfacing when the TIME (or
WET) screen is displayed.

OPERATING TEMPERATURE
The Wisdom 3 will operate in water temperatures from 28° to 95° F (-2 to 35 °C) and out of the water from
20° to 140°F (-6 to 60 °C). At extremely low temperatures, the LCD may become sluggish, but this will not
affect it's accuracy. If stored or transported in extremely low temperature areas (below freezing), warm the
unite and battery with body heat before diving.
It is possible to damage the electronics if left exposed to direct sunlight, or in a hot confined space (like a
car trunk). After diving, cover it and keep it out of the sun. If inadvertently left in the direct sunlight, the
LCD display may become totally black. If this occurs, immediately immerse it in water. The display should
recover its normal appearance after a few minutes. Damage from excess heat, or cold, is not covered by the
two year limited warranty.

PLAN SCREENS
The PLAN screens are accessible during a new activation period or greater than 10 minutes after surfacing
from a dive.
By pressing the front (Advance) button 2 times while the TIME/WET screen is being displayed (TIME/WET
> DATA > PLAN), or 1 time while the DATA screen is being displayed, you can access the PLAN screen representing the Mode you set the Wisdom 3 to operate in (Nitrox or Air). If set for Gauge operation, PLAN is
bypassed.
While viewing the PLAN screen, pressing and releasing the side (Select) button increases the Planned Depth
in increments of 10 feet (3 meters), displaying the information one screen at a time. Holding the button depressed scrolls through the screens at a rate of 4 per second.
Information provided includes Depths and allowable no-decompression dive times (NDLs) for Depths from
30 to 190 feet (9 to 57 meters).
If the limiting time factor is Nitrogen controlled, the N2 Bar Graph displays all green and yellow segments.
If Oxygen controlled, the green and yellow segments of the O2 Bar Graph are displayed.
For Depths where no time is available, 00 appears for Time and the DECO segment of the N2 Bar Graph
flashes. The graphic PO2 and O2BG (green/yellow) flash on the last PLAN screen (allowed time = 00).
The tables in the back of the manual list predicted Plan values for Altitudes from Sea Level to 14,000 feet
(4,270 meters).
Calculations within the Wisdom 3 change based upon each 1,000 feet (305 meter) increase in Altitude
above Sea Level (above 3,000 feet/915 meters). Due to the tolerance of the sensor and atmospheric conditions at the time, it is possible for a Level (LEV) to be displayed that differs from the actual Altitude.

DIVE TIME REMAINING (DTR)
One of the most important pieces of information on Sherwood dive computers is the 'Dive Time Remaining
numeric display'. The Wisdom 3 constantly monitors No Decompression status, Oxygen Accumulation, and
Air Consumption Rate.
a
MAXIMUM
DIVE TIME
FEET
NITROX
The Dive Time Remaining (DTR) display will indicate No Deco Dive Time Remaining (NDC), Air Time Remaining (ATR), or O2 Dive Time Remaining (OTR), whichever time is the least amount available.
• When NDC is displayed as DTR on the Main (Fig. 60a), ATR is displayed on ALT 1 (Fig. 61a).
• When ATR is displayed as DTR on the Main (Fig. 62a), NDC is displayed on ALT 1 (Fig. 63a).
• When OTR is displayed as DTR on the Main (Fig. 64a), ATR is displayed on ALT 1 (like Fig. 61).
No Deco Dive Time Remaining (NDC)
No Deco Dive Time Remaining is the maximum amount of time that you can stay at your present depth before entering a Decompression situation. It is calculated based on the amount of Nitrogen absorbed by hypothetical tissue compartments.

The rates each of these compartments absorb and release Nitrogen is mathematically modeled and compared
against a maximum allowable Nitrogen level. Whichever one is closest to this maximum level is the controlling compartment for that Depth. Its resulting value will be displayed numerically along with the SAFE
MINUTES icon and graphically as the Nitrogen Bar Graph.
As you ascend from Depth following a dive that has approached the No Decompression Limit, the
Nitrogen Bar Graph will recede as control shifts to slower compartments. This is a feature of the
Decompression Model that is the basis for Multilevel Diving, one of the most important advantages
that Sherwood dive computers offer.
The no decompression Algorithm is based upon Haldane’s theory using maximum allowable nitrogen levels
developed by Merrill Spencer. Repetitive diving control is based upon experiments designed and conducted
by Dr. Ray Rogers and Dr. Michael Powell in 1987. Diving Science and Technology® (DSAT), a corporate
affiliate of PADI®, commissioned these experiments.
O2 Dive Time Remaining (OTR)
Oxygen Accumulation (saturation or exposure) during a dive, or 24 hour period, appears graphically as the
Oxygen Accumulation (O2) Bar Graph. As time remaining before reaching the Oxygen Exposure Limit decreases, segments are added to the O2 Bar Graph (O2BG).
When the amount of time remaining before reaching the O2 Limit becomes less than the NDC, calculations
for that depth will be controlled by O2. OTR will then appear as DTR on the Main. As O2 accumulation
continues to increase, the O2 Bar Graph will enter the Caution Zone. If OTR continues to decrease, the
O2BG will enter the Danger Zone and the full O2BG will flash.

Air Time Remaining (ATR)
The Wisdom 3 calculates ATR using a patented algorithm that is based on a diver's Air Consumption Rate and
current depth. Tank pressure is measured once each second and an average rate of consumption is calculated
over a 60 second period. This rate of consumption is then used in conjunction with a knowledge of the depth
dependence to predict the Air required for the diver to make a safe controlled ascent including any required
Decompression Stops.
PSI

(ATR is on Main)

Air Consumption and Depth are continuously monitored and ATR reflects any change in circumstances. For
example, when you suddenly find yourself swimming against a strong current and begin breathing more rapidly, the Wisdom will recognize the change and adjust the ATR accordingly.

Remember, ATR is the time you can remain at your present Depth and still surface with the Tank Pressure Reserve that you selected during setup (End Pressure Alarm Set Point).
When ATR (Fig. 62a) decreases to zero, you should immediately initiate a controlled Ascent while monitoring
your Tank Pressure. However, there is no reason to panic, the Wisdom 3 has allowed for the Air necessary for
a safe ascent including any Decompression Stops required.

DECOMPRESSION MODEL
The Decompression Model used by the Wisdom 3 is based on the no decompression multilevel repetitive dive
schedules successfully tested by Dr. Ray Rogers and Dr. Michael Powell. These tests did not include repetitive dives deeper than 90 FT (27 M) or decompression dives. Due to the present unavailability of statistical
data, Wisdom 3 decompression predictions are based on U.S. Navy theory.
TISSUE COMPARTMENT CONTROL
The Wisdom 3 tracks twelve tissue compartments with halftimes ranging from 5 to 480 minutes. The Nitrogen Bar Graph always displays the controlling compartment that is the only one important at that time. Think
of the Nitrogen Bar Graph as 12 separate transparent displays laid on top of one another. The compartment
that has filled up fastest is the only one the viewer can see from the top.
At any particular point, one compartment may be absorbing nitrogen, while another that was previously higher may be off gassing. One compartment hand over control to another compartment at a different depth.
This feature of the Decompression Model is the basis of multilevel diving, one of the most important contributions the Wisdom 3 offers you.
NO DECOMPRESSION LIMITS (NDLS)
Note how the No Decompression Limits for the Wisdom 3 are contrasted with the U.S. Navy limits (Fig. 92).
The WISDOM's Dive Planner does not scroll past 190 feet (57 meters), or to depths
at which projected dive
time is less than one minute .
WARNINGS:
Using the Wisdom 3, just as using the U.S. Navy (or other) No Decompression
Tables, is no guarantee of avoiding decompression sickness (i.e., the bends).
Sherwood Scuba advocates responsible diving practices . Decompression diving is
inherently hazardous and greatly increases your risk of decompression sickness even when performed according to the computer's calculations.
In the event that you must make an emergency decompression dive, you must not
make another dive for at least 24 hours.

OXYGEN EXPOSURE LIMITS (OTLS)
Predicted exposure limits and oxygen calculations of the Wisdom 3 are based on maximum exposure durations published by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration in the October 1991 NOAA Diving
Manual (Fig. 93).
Both central nervous system (CNS) oxygen toxicity and pulmonary oxygen toxicity were taken into consideration when the limits were published by NOAA.
Although CNS oxygen toxicity is considered the primary constraint for higher levels of PO2, there are circumstances in which pulmonary oxygen toxicity can limit exposures.
CNS oxygen toxicity is not considered likely at PO2 levels below 1.30 ATA. It is however related to the diver's work level. Performing strenuous tasks could cause the symptoms of oxygen poisoning to occur at PO2
levels lower than they normally would appear during casual recreational diving.

WARNING: The nitrox features of the Wisdom 3 are intended for use only by
recreational divers trained for nitrox diving by an instructor certified by a recognized
training agency to teach diving with nitrox.
Diving with enriched nitrogen-oxygen (nitrox) mixtures requires special knowledge of the variations imposed
upon divers, their activities, and their equipment by the increased percentage of oxygen. Sherwood Scuba
recommends completion of a specialized Nitrox training course by a recognized training agency prior to diving with any enriched nitrogen-oxygen (nitrox) mixtures.

WARNING: In the event that you exceed the maximum limit of per dive allowable
oxygen exposure, it is recommended that you allow a surface interval of at least
2 hours before reentering the water. If you exceed the maximum limit of 24 hour
period allowable oxygen exposure, you should allow a surface interval of at least 24
hours before reentering the water.
ALTITUDE DIVING
Diving at high Altitude requires special knowledge of the variations imposed upon divers, their activities, and
their equipment by the decrease in atmospheric pressures. Sherwood Scuba recommends completion of a
specialized Altitude training course by a recognized training agency prior to diving in high Altitude lakes or
rivers.
Atmospheric pressure decreases as Altitude increases above sea level. Weather systems and ambient temperature also affect barometric pressures. Consequently, depth reading instruments that do not compensate for the
decrease in ambient pressure indicate depth readings shallower than the depth they are actually at.
The Wisdom 3 automatically compensates for decreased ambient pressures for Altitudes between 3,000 (915
meters) and 14,000 feet (4,270 meters). Its program contains a high altitude algorithm that reduces no decompression and oxygen exposure limits to add a larger zone of caution.
The Wisdom 3 senses ambient pressure when it is activated, every 15 minutes while it is activated, or every
30 minutes when it is not activated. At an Altitude of 3,000 feet (915 meters), it will automatically recalibrate
itself to measure depth in feet of fresh water rather than feet of sea water. It will then readjust the no decompression and oxygen limits at additional intervals of 1,000 feet (305 meters). Therefore, when returning to
lower Altitudes, diving should not be conducted until the unit automatically clears of any residual nitrogen
and oxygen loading and resets to operate at the new lower Altitude.

If the unit is activated at elevations higher than 14,000 feet (4,270 meters), it will

FLYING AFTER DIVING
In 1990 the Undersea and Hyperbaric Medical Society (UHMS) published a set of guidelines aimed at minimizing the possibility of decompression sickness due to flying too soon after diving. The UHMS suggests*
divers using standard air cylinders and exhibiting no symptoms of decompression sickness wait 24 hours after
their last dive to fly in aircraft with cabin pressures up to 8,000 feet. (2,440 meters). The two exceptions to
this recommendation are:
• If a diver had less than 2 hours total accumulated dive time in the last 48 hours, then a 12 hour surface
interval before flying is recommended.
• Following any dive that required a decompression stop, flying should be delayed for at least 24 hours,
and if possible, for 48 hours.
Fig. 94 - Altitude
* excerpted from “The UHMS Flying After Diving Workshop”
Since the 1990 UHMS guidelines were introduced, data from the Diver’s Alert Network (DAN) was introduced that resulted in DAN’s position** that “A minimum surface interval of only 12 hours would be
required in order to be reasonably assured a diver will remain symptom free upon ascent to altitude in a commercial jet airliner (altitude up to 8,000 feet/2,440 meters). Divers who plan to make daily, multiple dives for
several days, or make dives that require decompression stops, should take special precautions and wait for an
extended surface interval beyond 12 hours before flight”.
** excerpted from “DAN’s Position on Recreational Flying After Diving”
Both the UHMS and DAN agree that “There can never be a flying after diving rule that is guaranteed to prevent decompression sickness completely. Rather, there can be a guideline that represents the best estimate for
a conservative . . . surface interval for the vast majority of divers. There will always be an occasional diver
whose physiological makeup or special diving circumstances will result in the bends”.

Wisdom 3 DC Manual
To reduce the risk of developing decompression sickness after a single no decompression dive, current guidelines suggest waiting 12 hours prior to exposure to atmospheric pressures equivalent to 1,000 feet (330 meters) above sea level, or greater. When repetitive dives are conducted during the same day, or period of days,
it is suggested that the interval be increased to a minimum of 24 hours. Note that land travel to higher elevations after diving must also be considered as an exposure to altitude.
CLEAR (RESET)
The Wisdom 3 computer is configured with a feature that allows calculations pertaining to a dive series in
progress to be interrupted. Activation of this feature will delete all data accumulated during the dive series
necessary for planning a next dive and should only be performed if the user plans to suspend diving for at
least 24 hours.
This feature is present to provide institutional users of the computer a means to provide a "clean" computer to
subsequent users without having to wait for the computer to complete all calculations in real time. This practice requires strict control to ensure that the "clean" computer is not used by a diver that has been diving within the preceding 24 hours. Failure to follow this practice could adversely affect the accuracy of subsequent
calculations by failing to account for previous exposure to elevated nitrogen and oxygen partial pressures.
Fig. 95 - Clear (Reset)
WARNING: Do not attempt to activate the CLEAR (Reset) function on your computer.
Proper activation of this feature requires controlled procedures and is restricted to
authorized personnel.
WARNING: Improper activation of this feature could expose the user to elevated
risk of decompression sickness or oxygen toxicity. This is a serious risk and could
result in injury or death.
WARNING: If the CLEAR (Reset) screen appears (Fig. 90) on your computer, cease
all operation of the computer buttons and wait at least 24 hours before resuming
diving activity.
COMPASS REMOVAL/INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

SHARING THE WISDOM 3
WARNING: Never participate in sharing or swapping of a dive computer. Doing so
may result in injury or death.
The Wisdom 3 provides information based upon a diver’s personal dive profile, and therefore must not be
“shared” between divers. You should never, under any circumstances, swap your computer with another unit
between dives, or share your computer with another diver underwater.
It is impossible for two divers to stay precisely together underwater, and your computer's dive profile tracking
of previous dives will be pertinent to you only. Nitrogen loading of a second user may be significantly different and thus swapping dive computers could lead to inaccurate and potentially dangerous predictions of decompression status.
This rule applies to the use of all dive computers, but is especially important when using the Wisdom 3, due to
the personal information it provides.
