thx, i hope for a review from someone use the computer for a while.
I have an Omer Omr-1 that is by looking at the on-screen graphics and buttons' functionality is made in the same factory. It costs about the same, has magnetic buttons and the battery is rechargeable but can be replaced by the user if needed (they are very cheap). It comes with one installed band and two replacement bands. I have used it extensively and happy with it. One charge lasts 3 months easily. It has to be reset once in a while but it is not a big problem. Wearing it as my everyday watch

I did not understand the second question. The watch has only one mode - spearfishing/freediving (no scuba), starts to show the depth automatically below 1.5 meters. It shows the dive time and depth when below 1.5m and automatically shows surface time above 1.5 meters. I have no need for other functions so I can not comment on those - read the manual. It has not leaked, no condensation and the only problem I had - it would at some point say that the battery is depleted while it was not. Restetting the watch solved the problem.
To me the most important feature outside of depth and dive time obviously is the surface time to have a full recovery between dives and this watch has it.
Oh, it does not have a PC interface if it is important to you. Neither does SEAC I believe.

It shows your just the surface time, it does not give you any suggestion on how long it should be based on the depth and duration of your previous dive. A generally acceptable ratio is 3:1, so a 2-minute dive will warrant a 6 minute surface time. I use a 2:1 ratio on my dives and have no problems but my dives are usually shorter than 2 minutes.
I suggest going to the scubastore website - they have the biggest selection of computers - and read the manuals if you want details. All watches $200 and below are pretty similar in functionality so reviews are the best source of the reliability info. Omer Omr-1 is OK. Some people indeed have problems but not too many. Salvimar One is a piece of crap - several people I know personally had severe problems and returned them.
If you buy any computer from Europe, you will have a 2-year warranty. So if there is a problem - you can return or service it.
