Editor’s note: There are six basic reasons I dive a computer and I wrote a really nice wordy word blog post about it and it was so long even I wouldn’t read it so… I’ve broken it down into six segments which I’ll post on Friday mornings (beginning with this one). Thx!
Now… why dive a computer?
I’m a gear-o-phile. Okay now that we got that out of the way…
Dive computers are a great addition to your dive system. When a diver on a limited budget asks me what they should purchase first, a dive computer is always high on the list (usually right below regulators – but every situation warrants some thought). I don’t sell diving computers, I don’t get commission when one a diver buys one but I’m passionate about getting divers into computers.
And here’s why…
- Increased dive time
- The tables seem like they were designed to sell dive computers
- Gas mixture programming
- Dive logging
