TEST STATS 4 (VERY GOOD)
A stand-alone system with no air-integration options, the Leonardo’s module-based design allows the computer to be mounted as either a wrist mount or console. It has all the features required by the typical recreational diver, including nitrox compatibility up to 50 percent, PC-download capability with the optional interface and software, user-adjustable altitude and personal factors, and a 60-dive logbook. Some testers found the single-button operation tedious when adjusting computer settings and parameters, but most liked the main dive-screen layout, the availability of critical information at a glance, ease of programming and screen navigation.
LIBERAL OR CONSERVATIVE
The most conservative computer in all objective test profiles. To make the system more conservative, there are three user-adjustable safety factors.
The Leonardo was rated just as highly as costlier systems, making it a Best Buy.
