Dive Computer!

Up until now, my only big dive splurge was my new underwater camera with the diving housing.  I have a wetsuit, fins and mask I’m happy with (though my mask is fugly, it’s the only one that keeps water from coming in), but all the other equipment I end up renting.

I’ve been wanting a dive computer for a while, but it wasn’t until renting one in Palau that I really noticed how much cooler your diving experience is (I can control my own safety stops and depth, just that is worth it, no?).  When we went to Siquijor, I kept staring at my bare wrist, and really missed having that information on hand, specially when it was time to complete my log (which reminds me, I officially ran out of pages during this last trip).

So I finally took the plunge, and got myself a new dive computer!  I wanted one that didn’t look too geeky, if I were to wear in between dives, wasn’t too expensive and still had options such as Nitrox in it, and I settled for the Oceanic Geo 2.0, after reading a few positive reviews.

You know you’re in trouble when you actually have to watch a video teaching you how to use it…  Now let’s hope I get to take out this baby for a spin soon! 

I’ve decided that as soon as I start working, I’ll spend part of my salary investing in some of my own scuba gear (I was thinking a travel BCD, since my dives usually involve air travel).  I figured diving in Brazil will probably be quite a fortune, and rental fees even more, so that should allow me to keep up the hobby!

    I think everything is going to be a fortune compared to the costs in the Philippines! $20 a dive in El Nido with gear was off the grid cheap.

  2. Hi! Where did you buy your Oceanic Geo 2.0 and how much for it? Thanks.

  3. Congrats on the new dive computer! 🙂 Please post your thoughts if its worthy of your purchase 🙂 TIA!
