    Aqualung i300c. Best bang for your buck period if on a budget. Easy interface, blue tooth to download your dives and upgrade firmware. Can be wrist or console mounted, rugged and all around good dive computer. I had it as a primary but is now my backup.

    Good luck.

    Just saw the Garmin Decent on sale from DRIS for $799(?). It’s a little cheaper than a Teric.

    I have a couple DG02s for kids to use. They are ok... but nothing even close to a Shearwater.

    How cheap are you trying to get? I have seen some good deals on NOS Niteks in the $300 range. Which would be worlds better than a DG02

    I even have an older Nitek3 that still works great.

    Or in the $400 range, you can probably find a used Shearwater petrel

    I just upgraded to an AI computer. I have an Aqualung i300c less than six months old with 4 dives on it. The i300c is a nice watch with everything you are looking for. Check one out and send me a PM if interested in a lightly used one. I can ship it in the original box with all included.

    Mares quad. Bigger screen than everything else in the price range, multi gas options, 4 large easy to use buttons, backlit, and screen is the easiest to read by far of all the lcd style screens. At this price there is absolutely no better budget dc out there. I have one and personally love it. Nothing but great experiences
