The D5 has just allowed you to do 5 dives a day on a single charge. This is with the screen set to maximum brightness and using the wireless air integration.
Hope this helps

Thanks for the overview, really helpful! Btw, do you have a video for us bearded divers regarding best masks or tips on how to avoid water getting into the mask?

It wasn’t available at the time of filming this. We have since tested it though and it stacks up.

Do you have any comments or experience with Ratio computers namely the iX3m? It looks to be very good but I’m struggling to find much more than the official website.

I have one and it is the best value among all others. I have had one myself and my dive friends since 2017 and it is great.

Yeah, the NERD is a great HUD computer but I’m not a fan of computers attached to a mouthpiece as you loose them if you need to bailout or switch 2nd stages

Aqualung i550c should be on this list. Yes it seems like console computers are a dying breed but there is still a group that prefers them vs wrist mount.

Dieter Strobl

so, execpt the Zoop all of them cost more than €500, some even more than €1000,-. And to call a +€500 computer entry level is ridiculous. If you add the Aqualung i770 you can rename the list to “most expensive Divecomputers”.

It’d have been nice getting an MSRP with each of these as well.

I’ve already got a Perdix though, so I’m kinda covered. And my technical diving will mostly be with a rebreather with its own computer, so I can use the perdix as my backup.

This is a BS list! You didn’t mention the Ratio iX3M 2, the Ratio iDive and the Scubapro G2 Tek. You are so biased, Shearwater cheerleader!

YAY! We get to see you again – in a slightly rearranged space, with the same appearance and content. It’s like nothing changed except your employer. I’m just going to assume, and hope it’s true, that this is a good opportunity for you in multiple ways (responsibilities, pay, benefits, travel opportunities, and so on).

Yeah, sticking with the familiar content to build a foundation and we’ll be working on some new content over the next year to mix things up a bit. Apparently I need to do a 9 day course to film underwater safely…

I have found some cheap dive computers on aliexpress … price is ridiculous 110 USD, looks pretty good, and have almost all functions what you need include compass! :O Of course you should not rely on cheap craps in depth but in fact do you really need to know exactly if you are 23 or 24 meter deep for recreational dives? I did 70 dives and my average depth is around 15m include many deep dives. I guess deco alghoritms are well known and there is no reason to be small inaccuracy fatal. Do you have any experience with it? I have Mares Smart .. good enough for everyone who make few dives per year.

Shearwater Perdix AI : THE BEST

Bloody Marvelous

The Garmin’s G1’s screen is apparently hard to read in the sun and underwater, and the materials used are of poor quality. The Mk2s is the better option if you want an everyday smartwatch that can double as a dive computer. It’s not as bulky as the Mk2 or Mk2i and more usable as an everyday watch, and it’s an awesome dive computer with an incredible screen.

I personally have the Shearwater Perdix AI (note, there’s also a non-Air Integrated version available) because I prefer a dedicated dive computer. I do the everyday smart stuff on my phone, and wear a regular watch. The only thing I wish it had is haptic feedback, but that’s coming on the Perdix 2.

Not sure if you are allergic to Mares but the Genius is an excellent colour Computer with AI facility … suited to the spectacle wearing diver like me ( I have lenses in my mask !! ) with its large screen and big buttons 😉

Very important to note that anyone updating from Zoop to Zoop Novo….. The computer won’t fit in any Suunto console. They have a console boot, but it’s not widely available as I have found out.

Surprised that the i330c isn’t on the list. It had a recall but just to update the software (which you can do at home) but apart from that it’s a great piece of kit for the price

I am looking forward to the upcoming Apeks DSX. From what I know about the hardware so far, it sounds to me like someone has finally listened to what customers want. If the software is good too… Let’s see what PPS has tinkered with.

I landed on the Aqualung i770r (mostly due to having a cracking sale on it!). Very large, full colour screen, AI, USB rechargeable battery that goes on forever (just shy of 50 dives on it and only charged it once when it got to about 50-60%). I don’t use the app so I can’t speak to how effective that is but for the price (especially if you wait for the sales where they include the AI tank pod) it’s a fab allrounder 🙂
