Do you need a dive computer with wireless Air Integration (AI)?
It's completely up to you on whether you want to include the option of wireless AI or not when buying a dive computer. Dive computers and air transmitters can be purchased separately.
If your budget doesn't stretch to the full package now, or your unsure whether you want an air transmitter, buying a dive computer with the option for AI means you can always upgrade later on.
How do wireless dive computers work?
An air transmitter is screwed to your first stage of your tank cylinder. This pairs wirelessly with your wrist mounted dive computer. Once paired, it sends all the vital information directly to your dive computer.
Air integrated diving computers monitor tank information such as air time remaining, bottom time remaining, and the current PSI reading.
