I see it's been discussed here, but any other information? I have a Peregrine already, I want the air integration and I'm on the fence between Perdix and Teric. One standout I see is the Teric formfactor makes it possible to double as a watch on trips. Someone did point out the Perdix takes standard batteries.

Timex makes several great inexpensive watches that can be worn as a "dive" watch. I keep several spares. My dive computer is separate, I don't wear it except when I'm diving. I don't want to accidentally bang it into anything when I'm not diving. That would effect it's waterproof and I prefer some redundancy.

I was about to add exactly what you wrote. I have a cheap vacation Seiko that I wear on dive trips. Teric for diving only.

Excellent point.

Too big for daily wear for me - I'm 5'3''. Usually only to/from/during diving, but I've never been a watch wearer.

I just don't log dives
To me, the thing about watch-style dive computers is that they're too big for daily wear as a watch and too small (the screen and buttons) to comfortably use as a computer. Sure, if you have great eyesight it's fine as a computer, but I say the bigger the better when it comes to displaying important digits. A watch-style dive computer will always require the user to compromise a bit. I used to have one.

The Teric screen is bright, colorful, and has very good resolution. I can see it much better than my trusty old Oceanic VT3, with a larger display. Some divers say they can see it better than a Perdix.

I use a Perdix with a Garmin Descent Mk1 backup. When I'm done with my dives for the day I take off the Perdix and use the Garmin as a watch. I can get 7 days of diving and watch usage on a charge after 2 years.
