Sunday Rewind: Testing Oris’s Clever Depth Gauge In The Caribbean

When diving, one’s depth is crucial in understanding the physiological effect of any dive. To prevent decompression sickness (or the need to make decompression stops), there is an agreed-upon understanding of how long a diver can spend at a given depth, with less time available as the diver pushes deeper underwater. Today, divers wear complex dive computers that manage their exposure, but in a sport with such narrow margins for considerable risk, if “one is none and two is one,” then it always makes sense to have a backup. 

While the non-watch nerd option would be a simple mechanical depth gauge, in this six-year-old post, Jason Heaton field tests a depth gauge that is built into the natural backup for a dive computer – a dive watch! Fitted with a clever and simple depth gauge, if you wanted to see the Oris Aquis Depth Gauge in its natural habitat, look no further as Jason provides a bit of theory alongside some actual bottom time with this fun and innovative dive watch.
