Sharks are an occupational hazard for divers. Yet not all sharks are deadly.
So how do you tell them apart?
Simple, says Bremont, Britain’s foremost watchmaking business, which has been studying different species as part of a wider conservation project.

Sharks-World.com says that the Leopard shark isn’t a meat eater. Instead it focuses on what it can find along the bottom of the ocean. Clams and mollusks often are a big part of their overall diet. The coloring of angel sharks allow them to blend in well with the bottom of the ocean though so they often go undetected.
Sharks-World.com says great white sharks can grow up to 16 feet and weight around 1,500-2,400 pounds. Some have been known to weigh around 4,000 pounds but that isn’t the norm. More people have been attacked by great white sharks than any other shark species. Locations where they are living have been identified and people are encouraged to stay away from them.
The new Bremont FA-UX diving watch has unique sonar technology which can identify different shark species.
Simply hold the watch up to the shark and it will tell you, within minutes, whether it’s a deadly one or not.
