Aqua Lung i750 Dive Computer Review

Aqua Lung i750 Review

As soon as I saw the Aqua Lung i750 I wanted one. It appeared to be the perfect dive computer; a great size, sturdy materials and a host of functions which up until that point you couldn’t really find on another computer.

Lets start with the pros! The fact that you can recharge it means it could save you hundreds from battery changes in the long run and you won’t run out of batter when you are on a liveaboard and can’t get to a dive store. The Bluetooth connectivity is remarkably simple and having never bothered uploading my dives to my phone/tablet or online in the past I was pleasantly surprised how good it was.

The functions are intuitively easy to find and operate and the air-integration is one of the best I’ve come across. Unlike some other brands the Aqua Lung i750 computer is paired with the transmitter for life.

For techy divers you can have up to 3 mixed gases and transmitters to go with them.

There is one but and it’s a BIG BUT! The LED screen is incredibly difficult to see. I’ve taken my i750 to Sudan, Galapagos, Maldives and the UK, and the only place I can really read the screen is in UK darker water or on a night dive. I’ve leant the i750 to several of our club members to see if it’s just me, some of them were also interested in buying one as it appears to be good value. However without being prompted everyone commented on the poor brightness of the screen.

I’m sure this has been raised with Aqua Lung and they’re probably working on the i750 TC 2.0 but until that time I would consider an alternative.

Since the release of the i750 Suunto, the worlds largest dive computer manufacturer, has released the EON Core. It has virtually the same features and functions as the i750. Compared to it’s larger brother the Suunto EON Steel, it is a far better size and the screen is crystal clear.

So sadly, my i750 sits in my bottom draw and the EON Core sits proudly on my wrist every time I go diving.

For more details and product information see our product page on the i750 and the much better EON Core.

  • Thank you for reveiwing the Aqualung i750 wrist computer. My only fist of two regrets is that I did not see your review before I purchased one! I purchased mine in Dec 2017 as a personal Christmas present from European Outdoors (my second regret) and while the i750 looked great and setup up easily, it sat in its box until my dive trip to Bonaire in February 2018. Started my diving at Capt Dons and I noticed out in the sun that it was very difficult to read the screen before jumping in off the boat and making sure that I was in a he dive mode. I figured OK it would get better underwater, I was wrong! This computer is a nightmare as I could not see the data even at 50 feet with normal sun. I am a former PADI Instructor and have logged well over 2,000 dives, I discontinued using this computer after only a couple of dives. I did not think that I could be more disappointed, but when I called AquaTech Support, which they said unless there is an actaual issue with the screen not functioning that there was not a warranty issue, I was then transferred to the Marketing Manager where I had to leave a message for a call back. Nearly four months later and no call back as of 6/5/2018. I did contact European Outdoors where I purchased the i750 computer, immediately upon returning from Bonaire and requested a trade in for a different computer? They informed me that I was outside of the their return window and that a Mnager said that their was nothing that could be done! So, I now have a $1,300 paperweight sitting on my desk that is not safe to dive with if you cannot read the screen while diving. I am very disappointed with Aqualung, European Outdoors, And all other maufacturers who are associated with this computer. If I can help just one of your customers with not making a mistake with purchasing the Aqualung i750 computer or the Oceanic copy of it, then my time writing this comment will be worth it!!
