After your mask, fins, and snorkel, a dive computer should be next on your shopping list. Computers monitor your depth, how long you have been underwater, and how much longer you can safely stay underwater. Some models also include digital compasses and the ability to keep track of your air consumption via a hose or a wireless transmitter. Most dive centers do not have computers to rent, and if you do find rental units it generally isn’t a good idea to try to learn the interface moments before diving in. By owning a computer, you are able to learn how to use it and will ultimately be much safer underwater. When you are purchasing your computer, consider what types of air mixes you think you will be diving with, the user friendliness of the interface, the type of information that you would like displayed, and if you want something that can be stylishly worn while not diving. Many computers come in a variety of color options.
