Trying to get my own kit before my open water cert since I had to push my OW out.

Seems legit... or just plain crazy. Ok I have an issue with my air so now I am breathing off my buddies air supply whooops forgot to reset the alarm and hello surface. At the same time I see that this could be good for a new diver for identifying when they are panicing, of course if they are on the verge and breathing fast and hear the alarm it just might send them over. Could do without the auto-inflate after a set period.
I think I will wait for Diver Guard 2 with the integrated octo/inflator.
I'd hold out for the DiverGuard "DCS Pro" model, which will also hail a CG helicopter to retrieve the diver's embolized body at the surface.

PS - I think the bodguard guy in the suit is there to protect the diver from being beaten to death by the other divers on the charter the second or third time they use the "turkey call" to alert their buddy that they saw a parrot fish
