    "Just" as in yesterday and "evaluate" as in just use and thus form an opinion... eventually ... , but otherwise ditto...

    Deep6, (cerich or LandonL) can you post when you have them in hand? I called earlier and was told they were supposed to arrive today, but weren't there yet. If it can be sent out today or tomorrow, I'll order one and pay for the overnight shipping. Otherwise, I'll wait a bit and see what other folks find out.

    Also any info for connecting via the included Bluetooth? For example, will there be an app or are you just hoping Subsurface will add it?

    They are on a customs hold in California at the moment. As I posted in my email, I expected as much.

    App come soon

    It will not be shipping tommorow nor day after. Don't see it happening. Likely next Monday or Tuesday

    My thoughts. I spearfish. I do repetitive dives. I dive deep.

    1. I like a console mount, wrist computers are more easily fouled spearfishing or lobstering.
    2. Those GFs look like they push stops too deep for me and are far to conservative for me. It looks like the runtimes for those GFs will look a lot like a bubble model's.
    3. For tech dives using a rec computer for a backup to a real tech computer is less than optimum. 2 of these in guage mode with tables would be fine and at a decent price point.

    we aren't recommending this as a tech computer backup, we are recommending this as a recreational computer.

    If they are at the Port in Long Beach I can pick one up there. Saves you shipping ;-)

    I have small wrists. The solution is to wear your computer on your forearm rather than right on your wrist like you would a watch. That’s the only way my computer(s) stay on when diving wet.
