Difference between divecomputers

The expectation and wishes are different for beginning divers or advanced divers and technical divers. Beginning divers probably can go for a entry level divecomputer but a technical diver would need a high end divecomputer. In this blog we will tell you all about the different types of computer we are selling.

 

Entry-level: all necessary functions are available

By a entry level Divecomputer you are buying a basic divecomputer with all necessary functions on board. A computer like this will meet all demands of a beginning Scubadiver. To give you an idea what entry level divecomputer to buy we selected following models for you: Suunto Zoop Novo, the Mares Puck Pro and the Aqualung I200C. It does not matter what kind of diver you are if you are planning to buy a good and simple divecomputer without extra technical specifications these are the ones to buy.

Most entry level divecomputers are big wrist-top models that only can be used during scubadiving, some can even be used as daily watch because they are small with great design to wear during the day.

Mid: For advanced scubadivers with specific demands

Our Mid-Range Divecomputers are specially design for Scuba divers demanding more from a divecomputer than starting Scubadivers. At the mid-range divecomputers you often have the option to perform a gas switch during the dive or that the computer has a integrated compass. A few examples of Mid-range divecomputers are Mares Quad, the Mares Smart, or the Suunto Vyper Novo.

Even the display can be adjusted to your own demands and can be personalized. You can connect the dive computer to your PC or Mac by using a divelink. When there is a software upgrade available you need the divelink as well, this can be done at home and the computer does not have to go back to Mares.
