Do they? If they are designed to scare you into cutting short your dive, or treating a no mandatory deco dive as a deco dive, then I might agree with you. Apart from limiting dives due to excessive conservatism, I find reporting an incorrect time to surface unacceptable and therefore feel other computers also do no deco sport diving better. When did fashion have a place in a sport where snot on the face is considered normal? The functionality of a dive computer is far more important than it being a fashion accessory! The transmitter is a poor idea and if you are looking at spending that sort of money then I'd recommend something that uses a recognised algorithm, rather than some fanciful proprietary nonsense! If we are talking fashion then I must observe that strapping a large cylinder of compressed gas on your back and proceeding to empty it, without actually using most of the gas, seems pretty old fashioned, and is verging on primative! Join the in crowd and enjoy silence under the water! I agree the lower cost Suunto computers are an excellent choice for getting started and the basic screen is entirely adequate for purpose. Then quit sounding like a fanboy!
