Welcome to Dive Gear Reviews, a comprehensive guide to scuba diving equipment. Scuba diving is an expensive pursuit, so looking up reviews for a particular article of equipment is a wise precaution before investing any hard-earned money in it. However, consumer reviews may or may not be written by an experienced diver, and magazine reviews could be suspect due to the advertising ties of the publication in question. Dive Gear Reviews provides cross-referenced reviews assembled by an expert, making it possible to see at a glance what multiple sources said about a particular piece of scuba equipment. If one magazine loved a scuba regulator or a dive computer, but the consumers hated it, that information will be found here.

Subgear XP-10 Dive Computer Review

Written by Dive Gear Reviews Editor. Comments Off on Subgear XP-10 Dive Computer Review Posted in: Between $251-$500, Dive Computers

Scuba Diving magazine described the XP-10 as “a complete dive computer for all levels of adventure,” and Sport Diver named it a 2010 Editor’s Pick. Subgear is the re-branded Seeman Sub company, a German manufacturer of scuba gear that specialized in blending good quality and reasonable price tags. Two features of the XP-10 stand out, especially given the dive computer’s middling price tag. First is the adaptive algorithm, which adjusts its decompression computations for factors like cold water and quick assents. The second stand-out is the Nitrox setting, which ranges between 21% and 50% and allows the diver to set the precise level in 1% increments. A lot of dive computers that cost more than this simple-looking unit with its chunky digital display only allow for Nitrox to be computed only for a few commonly used pre-settings, but not the XP-10. It has a replaceable battery, all the typical dive computer functions, and the maximum depth for the computer is 120 m (393 feet). Subgear’s XP-10 comes in wristwatch and console formats.

Average Price: $249 (Wristwatch) $349 (Console w/Compass)
