    I really like my Suunto Gekko, so I suppose I ought to suggest it. Wrist-mount is the most flexible and should serve your friend well. All my dive buddies, save one, have that style, and the one who doesn't isn't a diver to be imitated, bless his heart. :D

    Do you really want to buy "cheap" when it comes to safety equipment?

    Phil Ellis had a sale of Dive Rite Nitrox computers on this site. A search should find the thread.

    I think Scuba Toys is having a sale on the Atmos 2 for $229 & that's a great deal

    Happy Diving

    But don't forget that if you call the order in, speak with Joe, and mention that you are a member here (at Scubaboard) you get an additional 10% off.

    I bought an Atmos 2 from Scubatoys and it works great. I had been using a console mount but went with the wrist mount.......I like it a lot and won't go back.

    Well I bought the bullet and placed my order with Joe this afternoon. Can't wait for the dive computer to arrive.

    Now I'm looking at what other items I need from their store.

    You know I saw that. You have it for about $3 cheaper, right? Do you have any Scubaboard member discounts? It is too late for mine, but I've got friends, you know. :D

    I bought Atmos 2 from ST thanks for SB member price - cheap or not is relative but I get more than I paid. Simple and user friendly.

    I was curious as well so I just "googled" the XR-1 and it is not Nitrox compatible. But, for the price, it is a good choice. Of course, I took the Atmos 2 from ST. It arrived on Friday. Now I have to wait until April to try it out! Because it is too cold here to dive. However, in February, we might do an Ice Dive, so I may get a chance yet. :D

    I have a dive rite nitec Duo and would recommend it to anyone wanting a simple, value priced multi-gas nitrox computer. I have seen it (and its clones...or maybe the computer it is a clone of) for sale recently, a Google search will probably find some good deals.
