PROD­UCT OVER­VIEW

Aqualung have been fairly late to the party when it comes to dive com­put­ers, but with the i300, they have a solid, user-friendly unit that is straight­for­ward and un­com­pli­cated. The i300 has three modes - dive (which cov­ers air and nitrox div­ing, up to 50 per­cent), free­d­ive, which is ob­vi­ously for breath-hold div­ing, and gauge, where it acts as a sim­ple depth gauge and bot­tom timer for techies. The dot-ma­trix dis­play is a de­cent size, and the rub­berised body and strap is ro­bust and durable. It has a user-change­able bat­tery, and the data re­ten­tion func­tion means it will main­tain set­tings and cal­cu­la­tions be­tween bat­tery changes.

TEST TEAM COM­MENTS

The i300 is a well-priced dive com­puter which is well-specced for the money. The dot ma­trix dis­play may be a lit­tle dated com­pared with its colour ri­vals, but is still easy to read. For un­der £200, it rep­re­sents a down­right steal.
