These Past Two Years have been Challenging for the Dive Training, Travel and Manufacturing Industries. Without being able to travel freely to Dive Destinations, the Diving Manufacturers have had to Haphazardly Predict How Many Units of Gear they can sell. Regionally, Dive Centers that have survived these trying times have also tried to weigh paying the rent, keeping employees on payroll and stocking essential inventory, even though it may sit in the store for much longer than it did pre-pandemic.
During this Period, luckily, we have seen a few new innovations in the Dive Computer Category.
We are suggesting the following Computers based on Features, Reliability and Price.

Sometimes Computer Manufacturers Pile on the Features and Promises. We as one of the worlds top dealers of scuba diving gear can stock any brand we like.
We choose not to stock certain items based on reliability and or lack or customer service from the manufacturer. We have been hung out to dry as a dealer of certain styles of computers over our stores history. Being attracted to a product that isn't reliable is understandable because we are all searching for the dive kit that is The Holy Grail. Does that kit exist ? So far the Teric is a solid piece in that puzzle.
Then There is the Garmin Mk2I with transmitter ....... Is it a GPS ? Is it a Runners Watch ? A Smart Watch ? A diving Watch ? To Be Continued - In Stock at Hollywood Divers
