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.

Cressi Leonardo Dive Computer Review

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

Updated September 25, 2014

The Leonardo is the latest dive computer from Cressi. It’s a module design, so while it comes as a wristwatch and is usually marketed as such, the computer can be dismounted and put into a console. In terms of performance, the Leonardo is a balanced, solid design for recreational diving. It has air and nitrox modes (up to 50% oxygen on the latter), features a back-lit display and has an audio alarm. The algorithm used by the Leonardo is very conservative, but the computer allows the user three safety settings to adjust that conservatism as necessary. The display is readable and everything is controlled through a single button, so while navigation is a bit crude, it is at least simple. The unit can store data for up to 60 dives, and is PC-compatible with the purchase of an interface accessory. As befits a dive computer coming from the Italians at Cressi, the Leonardo comes with grey, black, blue, pink and white watch straps. Overall, this is a simple-but-capable tool offered at a very reasonable price, so much so that Scuba Diving named it a Best Buy for 2011 and 2014

Average Price: $325
