I learned to dive in 1970 with a J valve, capillary depth gauge, watch, and USN tables. Now I dive nitrox and AI computers. You can dive all kinds of ways, it's not necessary to change with the times.Who keeps those records?
Risk management is ultimately an individual termination based on facts available, life experience, personal bias, knowledge, of in this case the weakness of digital tech and potential if not recorded failure points in their equipment and how it applies to their type of diving. Then there is the risk benefit trade off. Some divers don't need a computer to calculate how much time they have at depth with the air remaining in their tank. Some divers learned to dive pre-computer / AI for them the risk /benefit is questionable.
All of this of course is one diver's opinion.
