    The ring on the left is a for another strap, as an optional way to mount the computer.

    @David Norden posted his idea, asking for feedback. He has gotten a lot of feedback, some of it, useful. His responses have been appreciative. Personally, I give him a lot of credit for this activity. Way to go David, I hope the information is useful to you.

    Thanks! So far, I can only give you all a big thumbs up for the honest feedback. This is hopefully just the beginning of our journey, we want to make some good, solid, useful gear, with a fair price. This might not be spot on right now, but it is a start. Work in progress as they say. So, thanks everyone for your thoughts. Much appreciated.

    I want to co-sign both of these statements. I'm a female diver with small wrists and I want something that (a) fits securely, and (b) feels like it feels securely.

    - OC or CC
    - choice : double strap or double bungee
    - compass
    - firmware with different languages (remember guys, many people don't speak English :wink:)

    functional. but i'm not going to try to debate the practicality of a +20 grand dive watch.

    That said, OP, I love your idea for a great looking watch. Just make sure it has all the features and capabilites of my Teric!

    Add a cool analog watch style display that is as realistic as on this samsung watch and I'm game!
