A Little Tiny Rant about Dive Computer Promo Videos

Post by 60south » Tue Aug 04, 2020 4:19 pm

I'm shopping for a new dive computer. Whee.

The fancy computers all have these promo videos that show gorgeous underwater scenes, accompanied by heroic music, with only glimpses of the computers. They don't show you what you really want to see, like how the display works during the dive, the compass refresh rate, switching gasses, etc. Grr.

If I want beautiful videos I'll go to... the NWDC web site! Just show me the freakin' computer.
