Article Body:
More and more dive operators are making them mandatory. Some even include
a wrist dive computer as part of the gear provided to their customers.
This is especially true for live-aboard dive boat operations.

Of course that only makes sense for these “dive your brains out” deals.
You’re doing a ton of diving, spending serious time underwater, and a
computer not only makes it easier, but helps avoid compromising safety.

And don’t misunderstand, live-aboards are great. It doesn’t get much
better than five or so dives a day, and merely rolling out of bed to get
to the site. Put that together with great food, pristine reefs off the
beaten path, & falling asleep under the stars, and it’s a super vacation
recipe.

Aside from their obvious usefulness in the live-aboard world, dive
computers make sense for most all diving situations. In fact, anyone
serious about the sport shouldn’t make another dive without one. From
maximizing bottom time to calculating complex dive plans without
compromising safety, these wrist computers are invaluable.

Even the dive operators who don’t make them mandatory, will separate the
computer divers from the non-computer divers, requiring those without
personal dive computers to follow a much more conservative profile, which
most often results in a shorter dive.

Now there’s nothing wrong with being conservative, but not to the extent
of cutting a dive needlessly short. And that’s the whole point behind
using a computer. It allows more time at depth and/or underwater while
still helping you stay within safe limits.
There may be a handful of very experienced scuba divers who are so
skilled with the dive tables, they can recalculate complex dive plans on
the fly during their dive with some proficiency. But even they can’t beat
a computer in terms of speed and accuracy. And most, if not all those
guys, still use a computer simply because they prefer to get the most
from their diving.

Whether you need the full functionality of variable gas mixtures,
extensive dive logging, complicated multi-level dive profiles, deep or
decompression dives, etc., or just want to stay safe while allowing for
slight changes to your dive plan, a good dive computer is an excellent
investment.

They really should be considered required equipment. Prices have come
down so far that cost just isn’t an excuse anymore, especially when
thinking about safety. Get the most out of your diving by making a wrist
computer an integral part of your dive gear.
