Dive computer with air integrationWhat really makes the difference between a dive computer with air integration, a dive computer with transmitter and a "normal" dive computer? Is it just a technical gimmick, a matter of convenience for divers who do not want to read multiple displays while scuba diving, or do not want to have as many hoses attached to their 1st stage, or is there more to it?
Definitely - it's more about dive computers with air integration! Not only is it the comfortable fact that you can do without an additional instrument - in this case the pressure gauge - but there is even more safety for the diver, and you cannot have enough of that when diving. Dive computers with air integration measure permanently and display the pressure in the breathing air bottle of the diver and monitor his air consumption while diving. These data are included in all further calculations of the dive parameters such as saturation, ground time, deco time. Thus, this dive computer not only calculates general data based on research and experience, but also takes into account the actual air consumption of the diver during this dive and thus provides personalized and very accurate dive parameters that cannot be surpassed in safety. Because every diver knows that everybody’s air consumption is different! Whether smoker or non-smoker, nervous diving newcomer or deep-relaxed dive professional, well-trained scuba diver or not so fit casual diver – some divers can dive for 90 minutes with a 12-liter tanks and others are already after half an hour on reserve. It is clear to every diver that there must be a big difference in tissue saturation - and that's exactly what a dive computer with air integration takes into account.

Entry-level dive computer with air integration
More technology costs more money, no question - but what does security cost? However, a dive computer with transmitter does not have to cost a fortune - it may also be the simpler model of dive computer with air integration, such as the Suunto Vyper Novo dive computer with transmitter or the Suunto D4i dive computer with transmitter convincing with unbeatable price-performance ratio.
High end dive computers with air integration
The way is upwardly open - the manufacturers of dive computers just seem to get going and are packing more and more features and technology into their high-end dive computers, as seen on the Mares Matrix dive computer with air integration, some even with heart rate monitors like the Uwatec Galileo G2 dive computer with transmitter and chest strap or the Suunto Eon Steel dive computer that can be adjusted to the personal needs of the diver and thus "grows" from dive newbie to professional. The golden mean is represented by high-quality dive computers with transmitters with reasonable prices such as the Mares Quad Air dive computer with air integration, the Scubapro Mantis 2 dive computer with transmitter or the Suunto dive computers with air integration like the D4i Novo or the Suunto D6i Novo with transmitter.
Dive computer with hose air integration
Air integration is also possible without a transmitter, when the dive computer is connected directly by HD hose to the 1st stage. This is not the proper solution for divers who would like to reduce the number of hoses on their diving equipment, but in any case for divers who would like to enjoy the safety of a dive computer with air integration, but do not want to spend quite as much money for a dive computer. In our online dive shop you will find some dive computers with hose-air integration such as the Suunto Cobra dive computer with hose, the Aqualung i550 dive computer, the Galileo G2 console or the Scubapro Aladin H Matrix dive computer.
