How does a dive computer work?
HOW DIVE COMPUTERS WORK. Put simply dive computers use a depth sensor and a timer to work out how fast you absorb gases into your body by using an algorithm inside them. The deeper and longer you stay down the faster you absorb the gases you're breathing and your computer monitors your depth and time at all times.

Wireless Air Integration dive computers
are the ultimate in scuba diving freedom and style. Dive computers allow the user to receive accurate dive data during and after a dive such as dive duration, depth, ascent rate and much more.
Keep in mind: If a diver makes a single dive on a computer, the computer keeps computing tables for as long as 24 hours afterward. So if someone dives an hour a day with his computer, the computer is still runs up to 300 days.
An anniversary deep-sea diving expedition will offer tourists a chance to visit the R.M.S. Titanic, a hundred years after the legendary ship sank to the bottom of the frigid North Atlantic. ... The trip to Titanic's resting place takes about 2.5 hours, and a round-trip dive lasts about 8 to 10 hours.
The three-axis compass can be accessed by double-tapping the display while diving. Underwater alerts and alarms can be customized, and the computer operates for 40 hours in dive mode on a single charge.
A diver should ascend most slowly from his safety stop to the surface, even more slowly than 30 feet per a minute. Nitrogen in a diver's body will expand most quickly during the final ascent, and allowing his body additional time to eliminate this nitrogen will further reduce the diver's risk of decompression sickness.
The need to do decompression stops increases with depth. A diver at 6 metres (20 ft) may be able to dive for many hours without needing to do decompression stops. At depths greater than 40 metres (130 ft), a diver may have only a few minutes at the deepest part of the dive before decompression stops are needed.
Use Suunto D5 as a bottom timer with Gauge mode. The timer in the center of the display shows dive time in minutes and seconds and activates at the start of the dive. NOTE: Gauge mode is a bottom timer only and thus includes no decompression information or calculations.
Total ascent time, or time to surface (TTS) assuming immediate ascent at recommended rate, and decompression stops as indicated.

Only 340 bodies were recovered after the sinking of the ship. Of the roughly 1,500 people killed in the disaster, about 1,160 bodies remain lost.
