We compare the Best Selling Dive Computers with Wireless Air Integration

Air integrated dive computers are becoming a very popular choice for Scuba divers. Ask around, and you'll find divers both for and against dive computers with air integrated capability.

Some divers prefer to keep it simple and believe it's just another thing that can go wrong.

While others love the freedom wireless AI gives them - a quick flick of the wrist during a confined wreck dive to show vital information, is want they want.


Whether you're looking to buy your first air integrated dive computer, or want to upgrade the one you have, our list below includes the top dive computers, all with wireless air capability.

Do you need a dive computer with wireless Air Integration (AI)?

Remember, it's completely up to you on whether or not you want to include the option of wireless AI when buying a dive computer.

Dive computers and air transmitters can be purchased separately. 

This means that if your budget doesn't stretch to the full package now, or if you're unsure on whether you want an air transmitter, buying a dive computer with the option for AI means you can always add an air transmitter to your gear later on.

How do wireless dive computers work?

Air integrated diving computers monitor tank information such as air time remaining, bottom time remaining, and the current PSI reading.

Air transmitters are screwed to your first stage of your regulator. This is then paired wirelessly with your wrist mounted dive computer. Once paired, it sends all the vital information directly to your dive computer.

Some transmitters and dive computers only need to be paired the once. Others, such as the Suunto's may need to be re-paired if someone on your dive boat is using the same code. This doesn't take long to re-pair a Suunto, but it's good to know this could happen before you buy one.

  • Thank you for this content Ms. McKenzie. I’m a greenhorn diver and if you may; I have a couple of inquiries.
    1- How air integration works when there are multiple air tanks involved?
    2- Are air transmitters are standard? Or if I’m to buy myself an AI dive computer I need to get a regulator kit which will accommodate its distinct Air transmitter?

    • Hi Murat,

      You describe yourself as a greenhorn diver, so I feel the best way of getting you up to speed with the subject is to check out a few you tube vides. There are many that cover this subject.

      Here is a recent (February 2020) 14 minutes of you-tube video on Air Integrated Dive Computers that covers a lot of ground.

      Hopefully, this will answer all or most of your questions quickly


  • We were both extremely active divers but had a health set back about 20 years ago, and we had to put diving on the back burner.
    Fortunately, our problems are now behind us, so we are looking forward to getting back into some serious diving.

    BUT, like all things, we have found the world has almost passed us by with technology, and we feel fortunate to come across your blog, Jace. This has really given us so much information to get us up to speed quickly. Thank you.
