Yes it does, but before the dive you have to sit there and figure out what 3 levels (depths) you want to dive at then calculate them. If you are diving someplace new and you have no idea what the bottom typography is how are you going to know what depths to calculate?
Also, if you dont line up the little marks just perfect on the wheel as you are trying to make calculations the whole thing gets thrown off.
It would be impossible to work it underwater.
Essentially the wheel is nothing more than a device that calculates three separate square profiles in succession. So like I said, IMO, it is a piece of garbage that no one ever uses so why are they wasting our time with it.
