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 Giotto Dive Computer Review

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

The latest thing from Cressi, the Giotto is a wristwatch-style dive computer featuring their new RGBM algorithm. The new system was designed in collaboration with Bruce Wienke and based on the Haldane Model, emphasizing the needs of a diver on a multi-dive schedule and using mixed gas, both common elements for seasoned, vacationing divers.

The three-button interface was designed with intuitive easy-of-use in mind, and based on early consumer feedback, the new system is a successful one. Add to that a 60-diveĀ  memory, backlighting, and 120 meter (almost 400-foot) depth limit, plus the usual bag of dive computer features like clocks, calenders, diver timer, and ascent rate monitor, user switch from imperial to metric, and the big, blocky readout, and you have a very middle of the road, modern computer.

Average Price: $350
