The Mares Puck computer has been named as best for beginners by a German diving magazine.

Unterwasser magazine chose the Puck as its “suggested buy” model, beating off some stiff competition.

The Puck received all-round high scores, with the panel impressed by its ease of use.

This makes it a particularly good choice for novice divers, they concluded.

Winning factors included a best price-to-quality ratio, display readability, and easy to access push button.

The Puck can be mounted in a wrist or console configuration.

A single button design allows divers to intuitively scroll through all menu options, while easily selecting or changing computer settings.

The Mares Puck costs around £190, and is available from most major dive retailers now.
