5mm Is fine for UK summer/autumn and a good all rounder for if you go abroad unless its very hot/cold water temps. I got a Suunto D4F but its only been used in the pool while swimming because of lockdown.

I spent some time looking at different ones - the Salvimar One and the Seac Pantner looked also good as entry watches but the DF4 seemed a bit more refined suited to me.

Whatever you get, I would recommend getting one specifically for freediving/spearing, as even though diving watches have an apnea mode, not all of them measure rest times between dives. And you inevitably have more modes and options to cycle through - not ideal when you just want to dive.
Awsome I'll check some out am I right in saying that the chalk reef in norfolk is protected I see a few vids of scuba divers down their
