Why should you consider renting or buying a dive computer? A dive computer is an essential piece of personal dive gear gear that allows you to extend your time and safety while in the water. Modern dive computers update you constantly on how much time you have left, based on your current depth. Essentially this allows you to remain safely underwater for longer with potentially shorter safety stops.
