We did another round of research the past few weeks and decided on the DiveRite NiTek Duo for my wife as a back-up to her venerable but non-water activated Oceanic Prodigy (if you activate it underwater it locks out - gads). We tried teh DiveRite earlier this year on a DiveRite gear tryout trip and decided on it for the following reasons. The numbers are large, easy to read, it has good safety stop countdown and water activation plus it does Nitrox and is backlit. If you'll eventually do other gas blends, you may want to look at DiveRite's NiTek He (but watch out for sticker shock, though).

Oceanic also has a great line and is less expensive. It came in a close second, but our 'over 40' eyesight liked DiveRite's larger digits.

I like my air integrated Suunto and it is based on a conservative dive model and allows you to customize it for your physical condition, altitude, Nitrox. Suunto makes a line of non-air integrated models using the micro bubble model with similar features.

Good luck!
