Hello, are aqualung computers good for freediving?

I recently received a gift card for aqualung products as a early Christmas gift. My Freediving kit is pretty well build, with the exception of a dive computer. seeing that I now have a gift card, I thought I would check aqualungs line up of watches and see what they offered. They are however strongly scuba based with an added Freedive mode. Just curious is anyone has experience with their products aka the i200c, i300, i450t, ect. Are they good (for freediving in particular)? How do they preform? Are there better options for around the same price, preferably cheaper if I can't use gift card.

I appreciate any information,

Thank you and happy diving.

Most interested in i200c, unless other is better.

If you are looking for a freediving computer specifically I strongly suggest you take a look at the Suunto d4f which is very similar in price

Okay, I’ll give it a look. I’ve come to the conclusion that the aqualung watches aren’t going to work for what I’m wanting. Thank you for the suggestion, I needed some new ones to look at.

Check the specs of the DC and make sure there is a free dive mode too! If it's only for scuba it's not suitable for free diving!
