Dive Computer is an important piece of scuba equipment that allows you to continuously monitor various dive metrics in real-time. Precisely measuring the depth of your dive, rate of ascent, no stop limits and other important indicators, this tool helps you to dive well and stay safe. What’s more, dive computers can replace several dive gauges, including the depth gauge, timer and sometimes a submersible pressure gauge. It proves to be a more compact and easy to use information processing instrument that helps divers to embark on their adventures with confidence.
Modern dive computers combine cutting edge technologies and user-friendly design. Models with easy-to-read, high-resolution screens present the data in a clear and comprehensible way. Most of the newer dive computers can also be connected to your laptop or desktop computer, so you can download your dive data for further analysis. While there are a variety of options available, some with many more advanced features, your ultimate choice should be based on your needs and the type of diving you do. If you are a recreational diver, you can settle on a simpler model that won’t distract you with irrelevant data. Technical divers, on the other hand, need to make sure that the device incorporates all the necessary modes and features to handle a more complex dive profile.
There are also freediving specific devices or scuba computers with an apnea mode. So, if you are into freediving or spearfishing, you can find a wrist computer that will display depth, dive time, water temperature, descent and ascent speeds, surface-recovery time, etc.
