Default Which Nitrox computer to buy?

This post is to all NITROX COMPUTER divers out there.

Have just recently completed the Nitrox course, and everyone says to get a Nitrox compatible computer. Been scouring the internet, but have only gotten more confused and overwhelmed.

Of the hundreds of Nitrox computers out there, two strike my interest because of the LARGE numerals (which I definitely need).

The Oceanic Datamax Pro

The Aeris Atmos AI

If anyone has any input about these computers, or ones similar, please post - Ric

Default RE: Which Nitrox computer to buy?

i would go with a computer like the Tusa IQ 700 or the Dive rite Nitek Duo. i have 2 (one duo and one IQ700) they are the same exact computer just distrubited by differnt companys, i believe that dive rite, tusa, cressi, and zeagle all distrube this computer. this computer is very easy to use and can accomidate 2 diffent gas mixtures for the same dive. this is nice if you ever decide to do an advance nitrox, deco procdures class. i have used my computers on about 70 dives combined and have had no problems with either of them. MBT sells thetusa version go by there andthey will show you how it works.

The Oceanic datamax pro plus 2 is an excellent computer and a great choice for those of us that are suffering from arms that are too short. Very reliable and easy to use.

I don't like a wrist mounted computer, because I go under all rocks looking for lobster and i demolished my Nitrox Nemesis II face plate after 1 summer so you couldn't even read itand had to have it replaced. I now leave it on my power inflator

I use the Tusa IQ 700. I love it! I also have a Mares Puck, which is a nice computer. I do prefer the Tusa IQ.It's about $100 more than the Mares, and can be set for 2 mixes.

I also find the Tusa to be a little easier to read while under water.

I would second what Evensplit said about the Oceanic. It has a large display and is air integrated. I have been diving with mine for 7 years now an love it. It is a tough, rugged computer, I use the Tusa non-integrated as a back up. The Aeris would probably be the same algorithms but I am not sure the display is as big as the Oceanic.

I dive the Mares Nemo Wide and i love it. Big numbers which are easy to read from every angle. Not to conservative and I haven't had any problems with it yet.

I like my Suunto Gekko. It hasany Nitrox misture that you wantand is simple to understand. I hate reading instructions on everything, after 1 dive, I fully understood this watch.
