Mares Pure Passion Smart Apnea vs. Cressi King Apnea Computer

I need an advice - which computer is better suited for pool training ? Recently I lost in depths Omer XP-1R, my only watch now is spare Salwimar One Plus. I need more alarms for depths and also good "sensitivity" for pool training. Salvimar is terrible for pools - it starts dive after 1m depth and stop over 1m depth. I usually swim around 0,8m-1,0m. Omer was a quite better but not so much. I need something more precise - start after 0,5-0,8m and stop AFTER surfacing. Aka Cressi Drake (tested, one of my friends let me try in very shallow pool and it was amazing) - but this watch is no more manufactured. PC/Android link will be nic. And both of my actual or lost wathes is/was impossible to hear with 2mm hood (and freefall). That was a reason why I lost it (next time I need secure around my neck). If Mares or Cressi is good with loud sounds (or customable), it will be nice.

Thanks a lot for even few words.
And have a nice time in a water.
