Dive Watches vs. Dive Computers

Dive Watches:

Dive watches are designed for underwater use (diving) and are extremely lightweight, easy to use, and convenient. They work well if you don’t want to lag a large equipment with you and still want to access all the information at one place.

Dive Computers:

Dive computers give you more advanced navigation. They are also working with GPS navigation, and are generally giving you much more data. You can attach them to your gear and see real live data of your dive or watch back your journey. Some of the most affordable models are the Shearwater Peregrine and the Suunto Eon Core.
