Here’s a little information about VR’s new VRx dive computer from their site. I had a discussion about it with the owner of the dive shop where I teach. He left me with the impression that the main difference is the plastic housing, compared to the all metal VR3.
I’m planning to buy one of them (I haven’t decided which) in the coming weeks, since for the type of diving I am now doing, even most gas-switch computers aren’t enough. VR makes it possible to handle multiple gas switches including trimix, and provides functionality to closely match the data output by my decompression software.
Still I haven’t taken either of these, the VRx or VR3 underwater, so whatever input I can get from those of you who have used them would be very much appreciated.
