Is Your Dive Computer Your Submersible Pressure Gauge?

by Scuba Steve Colorado on April 03, 2014

With the proliferation of dive computers and the recent release of a recreational option from Shearwater(Shearwater just contact me for an address to send the demo ;) ) dive computers are moving from luxury to must-have dive gear.
