Like laptops and smart phones and other electronic devices, there are a lot of good dive computers to choose from. They all can be counted on to do the basics – monitor depth and bottom time, track nitrogen loading and calculate decompression, so the computer you end up with should be the computer that offers the design, features and functions that suit your personal style.
Some divers like screens packed with information, others like a simple layout with data distributed over a number of screens. Some divers like colors and graphics, others like to keep it clean and sleek. Some divers like to keep their diving casual and have no need for advanced multi-gas mix capabilities, others like as much technology packed into their computers as they can get. It’s all good, it’s all available, it just depends on what you want. So once you find the personal dive computer that works for you, what do you do with it?
