- The instrument is mostly covered by caoutchouc.
- It is worth doing several dives with a borrowed device before you decide to buy an analogue or digital (computer) one.
- Clean with freshwater after the dive. The analogue bathometer is often filled with air. If it got leaky, have it fixed by an expert. Otherwise see computer.
