    Yes it does. Sometimes you can find it for cheaper near $300ish and sometimes closer to $500. I bought an Atmos, mk1 and an Excursion all near the same time to play around with.

    Currently he uses a brand new replacement Atmos...but might get the Mk1.

    The Atmos Mission One has been on sale for as little as $310. I almost bought one, just to try it out. I need another computer like I need a hole in the head.

    Have you posted a review of the Mission One?

    Now, with the Peregrine, I don't think I would look at the Atmos Mission One or the Crest CR-4/Genesis Centauri/Deep 6 Excursion.

    Well thats wayyyy faster than mine. I should have it by Wednesday.

    Yeah. As low as $300 ish sounds about right! For around that price I feel it is a very good dive watch with a nice display.

    I wrote down my feelings in many places about it. Its translation of texts from my phone for the first few software revisions was like having some irritated Taiwanese guy inside it doing the translations to English. Though most divers didnt care about anything other than how it was to dive with it. My first Atmos had an issue with one of the sensors but they did give me a new one.

    Would I get it again, no because my wants have changed.

    However it is still a decent ...smart.... dive watch and still not in the same arena as the Peregrine which is soley for diving.

    The secret squirrel (Excursion) was a very good Dive watch as well and at retail comes in at about 40% cheaper than the Perigine (got mine at about 55% below) and is an actual watch as well.

    As always what people buy...they have their reasons. Hell I just spent 2k on Garmin when I could have purchsed a Teric to dive with a fennix 6 as well for near the same price, but I didn't want to.

    I do not have the Excursion an longer but it is a good and cheap...rec dive watch.

    I purchased it with the thought of giving it to my son after I played with it for a bit, but the Atmos at the time was easier for him to view/use and he liked the Atmos more for an everyday watch as well.

    The shop selling through amazon turned out to be about 20 miles away from me.

    Mine went from CA to KY ...and now is on its way back across the country. Got to love logistics for UPS 2nd day air.

    I also ordered the mk2i near the same time since I was waiting for a tx to be in stock so looks like the tx will now beat the watch.

    Still trying to decide on a Tahoe snow trip or going or getting some lobster diving in the next couple weeks.
