I am pretty new to diving (21 dives) and am looking to buy a dive computer. Does anyone have any suggestions of a model under 200. Thanks

I recommend, "Aladin One" by "UWATEC". Its around 90pound. Very reliable and a good dive computer.

Try and find a Mares Nemo ex display model. I got a titanium for 180, one or two scuffs but it's absolutely great!

Suunto Computers,Uwatec Computers and Oceanic Computers are best. If you want to buy online please visit the online scuba equipment shop http://www.directdivegear.com/

Hi Lbuck

My personal preference has always been towards Suunto, the display is clear and easy to understand they also seem to be cost effective, both to purchase and maintain.

A word of WARNING though, as with all dive kit, think about what you may want to do in the future.

If there is even a possibility that you may want to dive with Nitron in the future, you would do better to save for a bit longer now and get a more expensive computer that will have all the facilities you will need, rather than having to sell you air only model to buy a Nitrox compatible one later

Regards

Dave

getting something that is nitrox compatible is sound advice.

I agree with Dave.

Its probably better to save a bit more and get a computer to see you into the future. When you get more into your diving you will find that the lower end computers may not be enough. However it all depends on what type of diving you want to do.
