A wrist-mount compass or computer is easy to keep in front of
you without having to hang on to it.

Me: I dive a compass on my left wrist, computer on my right wrist,
AND an air-integrated computer. The wrist computer is the quick
check, and the depth gauge. The air-integrated computer is the
official computer. It's got more graduations in the "nitrogen
meter", and is slightly less conservative than the wrist computer.
The wrist computer will go into the yellow about 1-2 minutes before
the air-integrated computer.

The air-integrated computer is also the official temperature gauge,
just because I had it before the wrist computer, and it reads 1-2
degrees F below the wrist computer.

When you are doing an open-water, off the bottom, swim back to
the boat, you just hold both hands in front of you like
superman, and can check heading and depth with a glance.
