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.

Sherwood Amphos Dive Computer Review

Written by Dive Gear Reviews Editor. Comments Off on Sherwood Amphos Dive Computer Review Posted in: Dive Computers

The Amphos from Sherwood is a wristwatch-style dive computer, and builds on the company’s existing line of dot matrix display, wristwatch data crunchers. Basically it takes the proven and reasonably popular Sherwood platform of having a computer with two Nitrox settings (21-50% and 50-100%) with a range of bells and whistles, such as audible alarms, deep stop with countdown, loading bars, wet auto-activation, and a digital logbook, and tacks gauge and freediving modes into the mix. The Amphos uses the DSAT Decompression Model/Modified Haldanean algorithm, the same as the Amphos Wisdom 3. Thus far, consumer feedback has been very positive, and Sport Diver named the Amphos its Editor’s Pick for September 2013.

Average Price: $400
