When diving, one’s depth is crucial in understanding the physiological effect of any dive. To prevent decompression sickness (or the need to make decompression stops), there is an agreed-upon understanding of how long a diver can spend at a given depth, with less time available as the diver pushes deeper underwater. Today, divers wear complex dive computers that manage their exposure, but in a sport with such narrow margins for considerable risk, if “one is none and two is one,” then it always makes sense to have a backup.
