It's a DSC handheld VHF with built-in GPS for divers.

The last thing I want to depend on when stranded in the water without my boat would be cell reception through a phone with depleted batteries from shooting video and stills of bottom life.

Agreed, although I've got underwater cameras, Gopro black etc that are better for that so I doubt the battery would be depleted, but i get your point, it would only be useful for inshore dives in the US where cell reception is pretty much assured.
Just wondering on this thing that was posted, I assume it's maybe at most 1/4 watt, with three inches of antenna? How far could that thing transmit?

Re: Waterproof Phone Camera Combos

Nikon Coolpix camera AW110: waterproof to about 60 feet, records locations in GPS (and when you surface), and wi/fis with your smartphone to transfer images to the Internet. It's small, powerful and the handiest camera I've ever had.
