Purchasing a new dive computer can be overwhelming, but if you keep the following factors in mind while shopping, you'll find yourself much more prepared.
There are several factors to keep in mind when searching for your next dive computer, but don't stress, we're here to help. Dive into the article below to let us help you narrow down your choices.
Different computer styles include a watch style wrist computer, which is a smaller display but is about the same size of a watch you'd wear above water. Our small wrist computers are the i450T and i200.
Another option is a large display wrist watch, which would include the i770R, i300C, and i100. The advantage of the larger screen is easier visibility due to the larger display.
Lastly, there is a console option. A console computer connects to your tank via a hose, and is hand held. The i550C is Aqua Lung's console computer, which is air integrated and has the option of adding a compass to the console as well.
What is your budget?
Do you plan to dive locally, travel or both?
How good is your eyesight?
Where do you see yourself (dive experience/level) in the next 12-24 months?
Do you own a regulator setup? Plan to purchase one in the near future?
All dive computers do the same basic functions: provide depth and dive times (and air pressure on air integrated computers).
Hopefully this article has been helpful! Regardless of which computer you choose, you'll be confident diving with an Aqua Lung instrument by your side.
