As far as I can see this is by design, device id isn't the serial, they are
different things. You might want to keep track of which dives you did on
the Shearwater with firmware 1 and then which dives with firmware 1.1, if
the device id was the same you couldn't tell them apart, having different
device id means that firmware 1.0 and 1.1 show as different devices.
Maybe do as I do and set a friendly name for your dive computer but mention
the firmware version in there too.
