Dive Computers: A Consumer's Guide To History, Theory & Performance Book

Know someone new to the world of diving? This book is a perfect beginning point for learning about dive computers!

This book covers the evolution of dive computers up through when the book was released.

There is detailed comparative information on each of the dominant dive computers of the day and of the algorithms favored then by the different manufacturers.

Some of those same physical nitrogen absorption algorithms are still in use in today's dive computers. Others of the covered algorithms have evolved since the book's release but are still easier to understand given the book's background information.

Most specific current dive computers are not, of course, covered in a book copyrighted in 1991.

Much of the information is still relevant though, in terms of understanding the roots and limitations of the different theoretical models of nitrogen behavior in the body. It is a good book for new or non-technically-oriented divers get an understanding for how dive computers and their theoretical models work and for what they should look for in a dive computer.
