How deep does that meter rating on the dial mean?
When someone says a watch is rated to 100m, 200m, 300m what does that look like | Dr. Richard Harris (from the Rescue)
When you get your open water recreational rating you are rated to dive to 18m / 60ft
Deep rating = 40 m / 130 ft
Beyond 40m you get into XR (extend range programs and technical diving territory) 60-80m
100m/328ft welcome to Hypoxic trimix territory
