Reviewer: Donald A. DutcherMares Nemo Wide - Discounted Display Model - LIKE NEW: I bought the display model which was $200 cheaper than a new one. It was in perfect shape. No scratches on the screen, the battery was 100 percent and the wrist band was uncut. MARES NEMO WIDE: The display is huge so it can display all the essential information on the screen. Everything is clearly laid out for you and easy to see from any distance or angle. The night light glows like the Timex Indiglo. DIVING WITH NEMO: I did 6 dives in Cozumel with my computer. It worked great. It clearly showed my depth and in large numbers my bottom time countdown. Audible alarms can be heard even with arms at your sides. Between dives Nemo does a desaturation countdown and it has a...View Full Review
Reviewer: Erroll B.Icon HD Netready - I am Advanced Open Water. This product is a great piece of equipment that i believe will grow with me. I have used the computer a total of 9 dives, my max currently being 68 and have not experienced any problems. Linking the unit with the transmitter was difficult and required me to call Mares. The customer support was aware of the paring issue and the problem was resolved within 5 mins. Paring since then has never been an issue. During my dives all went well. There is always a panic moment after you change tanks and the new tank is being read, becaues there is a pause. I later learned this is normal. While in the water this pause did not occur. The Icon tracks everything I could ask...View Full Review
Reviewer: Rachel d.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...View Full Review
Reviewer: Peter DudleyOceanic Veo 2.0 Air / Nitrox Computer Review - Scuba Gear Reviews - my wife and i just replaced our old computers. we wanted to get something that offered the option of less conservative settings. the dual algorithm feature of oceanic computers lets you the conservatism factor suitable for the conditions. we did about 20 dives with our new veo 2.0 computers set on the dsat algorithm with zero conservatism factors and got really nice long bottom times. most computers sold today are fixed to a very conservative algorithm that really limits your diving, especially after the first day. the veo 2.0 is easy enough to learn and appears very well made. the display is excellent.
Reviewer: Linda C.GEO 2.0 - Very happy with this computer, I had a much more conservative one before and it wasnt conducive to drift diving off a boat on the coast of Florida. Before I was being limited to 35 minutes bottom time on the second dive and with the Geo 2.0 I get my full hour bottom time. Its easy to read, I am happy with it, my Dive Master suggested it might be a better option for the diving we are doing. I do find the directions to be less user friendly. The laminated quick start menu hard to read, it is very small. If it was a full size sheet of paper it would be useful s it is it isnt.
Reviewer: Gregory R.Scuba.com is the best - This is overall review rather than product specific. As for the datamax 2.1 dive computer, it was unavailable and the quality people at scuba.com recommended the Datamax 3.0. See my review of that. Short story is great dive computer you will love it. As for Scuba.com, they worked against short timeline to fill order equipping my daughter and I with BCDs, regulators, octos, and computers. When OnlineScuba.com failed to deliver BCD and regulator my wife ordered, I contacted the pros at Scuba.com. They had the BCD in stock and were able to recommend several excellent choices of regs/octos for my wife. Everything was shipped next morning and arrived in 48 hours saving trip to Grand Cayman.

Reviewer: Brian FergusonAwesome Computer...Compass inaccurate...Poor retention strap - i now have 30+ air and nitrox dives on my cobalt. the computer is easy to use, easy to read above water and below. the compass is not anywhere close to correct (80+ degrees off) and the calibration routine does nothing to correct this. even if you accept the incorrect heading, i find the compass very slow to and will never use it as a primary. the included retention strap is not a good design. it slides up and down the hp hose too easily and fails to keep the console from dragging. the console provides no easy locations for a suitable retractor clip connection. i removed the included strap and use a dive rite hose clip retainer with a swivel-eye bolt snap. hopefully the compass issue...View Full Review
Reviewer: Scott M.Failed on second dive - I purchased the DG02 because I liked the simplicity and ability to switch to gauge mode to use as a bottom timer. Dive 1 (80) was uneventful, however during the SI, the computer seemed to fall into some sort of demo mode. I had an air computer as backup and dove tables for my second dive with Eanx 32. At about 20 feet, the DG02 kicked back to dive mode, but then started to shut down as the readout became vague, eventually going blank. Although I completed the dive safely, the computer never turned on again. Scuba.com was prudent in refunding me once I sent the unit back.
Reviewer: JohnTUSA IQ-650 Element Air / Nitrox Computer Watch Review - $299.95 - Scuba Gear Customer Reviews - This dive computer is extremely easy to use. Though it only has one button, it is simple to navigate through the different settings and menus. the best feature is the ability for the owner to replace the battery without having to send it in to the factory for replacement. The strap is extremely long, but Im sure there are benefits to this that I am currently unaware of. Overall i am pleased to have purchased this item.
Reviewer: Gregory R.Great dive computer - Purchased for wife. First computer but she has 50+ dives. As easy to learn as any dice computer on market. Very clear display with large readout. Clear information with messages such as STOP or SAFE for safety stop and ascension rate plus elapsed time. Quick disconnect is smooth and easy and a necessity if you dint want you computer damaged as fear get tossed around boats. Have made 13 dives with this and see no room for improvement for recreational diving. Highly recommend this or XS Scuba Datamax Pro 3.0. Cannot go wrong with either.
Reviewer: Scott ArquillaOceanic Veo 3.0 - i decided to replace my (very) old orca skinny dipper mark ii, as i recently decided to take up diving after a decade long sabbitcal. while the instruction book was lengthy, it was easy to set up the veo 3.0. one of the great things about the skinny dipper was its easy to read display. i was intent of getting another with a good display as i am 58 years old. i was not disppointed in the least. even at 100 feet, the display was easy to read even without the backlight. i just recently ordered the usb oceanlog v2 cable so i can download all of the dive information. id suggest every buyer do the same thing. in a nutshell a great dive computer!
Reviewer: Richard LincolnSherwood Amphos Air (Nitrox) Hoseless Wrist Computer Watch Review - $1,000.00 - Scuba Gear Customer Reviews - It worked plain and simple. It has a simple to use interface and a good level of information provided on the main dive screen. There were no issues with the wireless connection during any of our dives. The dive log is easy to access and provides all the key data points from each dive.
Reviewer: David Cory Hugggreat product great service - I recently purchased two of these computers for my sons who just completed their Jr. Open Water certification. Scuba.com had the best price by far, and I received them in the middle east very quickly. We just returned from a dive trip, and the computers performed well beyond my expectations. They are very straightforward, are easy to use, and the data is easily to read, and later, easy to retrieve. I myself have used a suunto for years, but it has a steep learning curve, and I have to read the manual before each use. These profiles by Sherwood have won me over. My 10 year old can slap it on his wrist, dive in the water and understand all of the data, be reminded of the importance of...View Full Review
