    Weighting: 5 mil to 7 mil

    In my full rig, with a five mil suit, I am properly weighted with 12 additional pounds. How much more would I need to add for a 7 mil? Rough estimate is good. I am going to cold water but won't have the chance to dive the thicker suit until I am there so just want a starting point to fine...

    How old is 'too old' for a back-up dive computer?

    Nothing is too old for a back-up as long as it still works. The most important thing is that the backup runs the same algorithm as your primary.

    Anyone use this? Innovative Scuba Finger Spool With Hand Winder

    AP pocket reel is the absolute best. Same size as a spool but with a nice smooth handle and a birds-nest resistant design. Option to have the reel where the handle locks if you let it go or it can remain loose. Definitely a 5 star device.

    Perdix--Disable Full Time Safety Stop display in Rec Mode?

    I don't want the small number display. I do a lot of photography and don't want to have to concentrate on my computer. I want "at a glance" instant critical information in big numbers. I would be using the larger and more simply organized rec display all the time. I just want the one...

    Galileo G2 Heart Rate monitor goes crazy

    I had no idea this update was coming! Was debating between G2 and Perdix but this will shift me to the G2 for sure.

    I forgot there was a Shearwater forum. I re-posted there. Mods can close this thread if they wish.

    Perdix--Disable Full Time Safety Stop display in Rec Mode?

    I think I know the answer to this question but am hoping some experienced users here or someone from Shearwater can weigh in on this. My one issue with the Perdix display is a large deal-breaking one for me. It is that the "safety stop" is constantly displayed during the dive. For a...

    Shearwater Perdix--Disable Full Time Safety Stop Display?

    I don't think its rude at all, no worries. I posted here because maybe there is something I don't know about whether it can be disabled that people with experience can share.

    Dive Xtra Blacktip longevity vs. SUEX

    I bought a DiveX P1 in 2018. Have about 50 recreational dives on it, with a large camera mounted. I have nothing but 100% positive things to say about this scooter. It is compact, lightweight, and easily packed to fly, the batteries are flight-legal, so it can go anywhere in the world with...

    Shearwater Perdix--Disable Full Time Safety Stop Display?

    I know the answer to this question but am hoping someone from Shearwater can weigh in on future changes to this. My one issue with the Perdix display is a large deal-breaking one for me. It is that the "safety stop" is constantly displayed during the dive. For a recreational dive screen...

    New computer with vibrating alarms recommendations

    That's what I thought also, or perhaps a multi-level dive where you spend a lot of time in the shallows towards the end of the dive (like in Bonaire). But under those circumstances an alert would be pretty meaningless anyway. How does it behave on a typical deeper dive (60' or more)? Is...

    New computer with vibrating alarms recommendations

    Thats interesting. I would think that at 80% tissue load (I assume this is in the leading compartment) in normal circumstances there would be very little NDL time left.. What were the conditions where it alerted while you still had so much time? I am not excusing Garimin's approach of...

    Post-Conception Disaster: what you learned & will change

    I am already paying attention to this in regular scuba life. I recently decided to pass on a particular brand of video light. their "battery pack" was basically 4 unidentified brand18650s shrink-wrapped together with wires soldered to them to make a wiring harness that had to be plugged in to...

    Garmin Descent MK2

    Hi Stuart, Yes, I wish I could do a "try dive" with each as you are very right that only a dive will tell for sure. I know that in the shop I much preferred the Perdix to either the Teric or the Garmin on an absolute "computer to computer" basis (due to size of the display). But "watch to...

    Garmin Descent MK2

    Hi Stuart. If I was comparing "dive computers only" then the Teric would not even be in the running. It would be either the Perdix AI or the Scubapro G2. For precisely the reason you mentioned--large displays and ease of viewing (yes, I have "older eyes"). And, if I wanted only a...

    New computer with vibrating alarms recommendations

    Certainly is not very useful as an alarm for one of the most critical safety aspects of the dive. Maybe owners can complain to Garmin to add a "time remaining" alert in a firmware update.

    Garmin Descent MK2

    Well, it might. For me, a potential Teric customer for sure, this device does indeed "kill" any desire for the Teric. I have not bought the Garmin yet, mainly because I am setting aside money for it. The "Teric-Killer" is not necessarily true on a dive computer to dive computer basis. I...

    Garmin Descent MK2

    I certainly don't want to dive around your compadres if this is what you fear most. :wink: The "song" is to verify that the computer is paired with the intended transmitter so as to avoid any mistakes. But, it can't 'program' the transmitter to do anything but transmit pressure, as far as I...
