||Rating: After much research…
If, like me, your are purchasing your first dive computer (or even your fifth) and are trying to decipher the reviews and ratings for all of the latest and greatest gadgets out there, I would like to add my recommendation for the Mares Puck. I spent a few months reading, considering, talking to others, checking out my husbands fancy dive computer, and comparing and contrasting every review I could find on dive computers. I am not one of those divers who wants the fanciest computer with all of the latest technology that would do everything but wash your dishes, but I didnt want something that fell short in any category and that I would be looking to replace in a couple of years. T
he Mares Puck meets my needs now (OWD) and will grow with me for at least a few years as I become more advanced and move on to nitrox. (No, I dont see myself becoming a super, wreck-diving, re-breather type of diver). It has a nice, large screen, super easy scroll-through menu that just takes the push of one large button (great when wearing gloves), an illuminated screen, and dive log that you can upload to your computer (cables extra). You can also change the battery yourself. It does everything simply, easily and reliably, so that it is not one more distraction underwater. And the price happens to be extremely competitive with computers of comparable capability. After diving with this computer, I am very satisfied with my purchase and confident that I made a great choice. I highly recommend this product.
