133. One More Time – Yes, You Do Need a Dive Computer

Dive computers are powerful, reliable and an essential part of your scuba kit. There are many affordable dive computers on the market today that allow divers to fit this into their budget.

In my opinion, a dive computer is as essential as any other part of your rig. Listen to hear about who is telling divers they don’t need a computer.
