Freedive Watch Advice

Hello y'all!

I am looking for a dive watch at a reasonable price and wanted your opinion/expertise on the matter. I am open to hearing suggestions on models and brands.

My budget is kind of low (roughly $250) since it is my first dive watch, I would like to start off simple. The Garmin Mk 1 looks insane but far too expensive. So I was looking at the Aqualung i200 or i300. Not sure what the difference is but they both cost $199 on Amazon and they seem to have some pretty neat functions and features on the freedive mode. (I read through the user manual)

So if anyone has any advice I would appreciate it! Thanks!

I got my suunto d4f out of Europe for about $260. I like it so much better than the Aeris F10 I had before that everybody was so high on.

Mares Smart Apnea. Has everything you want from a freedive watch, plus large numbers and you can change the battery by yourself. Its cost is just what your budget is.
