Dive Computers and Gauges

Dive Computers and Gauges

A scuba diving computer is something that most divers will use. When you first do your dive course (open water) you will be taught how to calculate nitrogen levels via a table. This is something that every diver needs to know how to do, as this minimises the risk of decompression sickness. The use of dive tables these days is being replaced with the use of a computer- just like nowadays if we have to add some sums we would use a calculator. Many chartes and dive companies do not allow divers to go out with them unless they have a computer console now.

During a dive, nitrogen from the air you breathe in dissolves into your body tissues due to the increased pressure. The deeper you dive, the faster nitrogen dissolves into your body so it’s important to keep this dissolved nitrogen within accepted limits to minimize the risk of decompression sickness when you asend. To monitor this, your scuba computer tracks your dive depth and time and it calculates theoretical nitrogen levels using a decompression model and displays the time and depth limits you need to stay within. This is just one of the features that a computer has. You can get expensive dive computers and cheap dive computers and they will all perform the basic functions of times, depths, safety stops and temperaturs. The more you spend on a computer, the more additional functions you will get. Nitrox, more gas mixes, digital compass, wireless transmitter (air integration) and more will determine price. There are 2 types of computers available- a dive computer watch or a dive gauge. The watch straps to your wrist, whereas the gauge is connected to your regulator 1st stage. There is no best dive computer, its what ever suits your type of diving and your budget. Most computers are water resistant to 100 meters.
