Computers:

These aren’t necessary the best but certainly the leaders in the category “wrist watch computers” and that was our reason for choosing them. For more information on excellent dive computers contact your nearest dive shop.

    Strengths:

  • PC Interface with dive profiles
  • Logs 36 hours of dive time that can be profiled in 20 second intervals on the computer
