I suggest the SUUNTOs. I have a Vyper.

Air integration is a disadvantage, because if the computer dies, you lose your SPG at the same time.

Consoles are bulky and unnecessary.

The easiest way to monitor your depth and ascent rate is with your computer or depth gauge mounted on your wrist.

If all you ever did in your life was 2 dives a day on weekends at sea level, you do not even need a computer, just a depth gauge. In that case, an UWATEC bottom timer would be enough.

But if you take a 10 day diving vacation, the SUUNTOs will carry over your RNT nicely from day to day.

If you dive at high altitude, like Lake Tahoe, the SUUNTOs will also allow you to dial in altitude adjustments (1000 to 5000 and 5000 to 10000).

The nitrox mode on the SUUNTOs is very flexible as well.
