Hello fellow divers,

Can anyone point me in the right direction as to a good dive computer (watch) for a good price?

not an answer but a similar question.

Does ST sell the wrist bungies to stop you loosing your comp if the wrist strap goes?

We carry all kinds of tubing, and I've had people McGyver their bungees with that, but we don't carry anything official in a wrist bungie.

As far as a wrist type computer / watch, the XR1 is a rather large computer - which you would not wear as a watch... but the ocean geo is more "watched size". So that would give you a watch, and a full nitrox computer on your wrist, and with the instant manufacturers rebate, it's down to 350 before your other incentives, gift certificates, etc.

I have own both Suunto and Aeris computers and I like Aeris better. The watches are smaller of course but have the same software. I would actually advice you to get a computer rather than a watch, it's easier to read (bigger screen) and easier to push buttons with glove on.

I like my Suunto Mosquito (http://suunto.ch/suunto/main/product_short.jsp?JSESSIONID=G8a6uU3pJ4Bzn2DQkqmH3 7fA8xOh2x2u5BVgjNVNV9KvS2FwdRlP%2165967047%2116807 5286%217005%218005%21624675520%21168075285%217005% 218005&CONTENT%3C%3Ecnt_id=10134198673939571&FOLDER%3C%3Efolder_id=9852723697223379&bmUID=1190943482697)
Look that you get a user replaceable battery. That was key for me as I don't want to mail it in just to replace a battery.
Another one I like is Mares Nemo (http://www.scubatoys.com/store/detail.asp?PRODUCT_ID=MaresNemoSport)

I don't think you can go wrong with any of the Suunto computers !!!
