How many dive computers (DC) do you dive with?

[Choose #2] I have one wrist, one old console air integrated, use most conservative, worst case gave me 5 min extra stop (happened once). But if battery fails during trip (happened 4 times in 7 year) I can continue without missing anything.

[Choose #1] Only need 1 DC. If it ever fails, I’ll use my backup depth gauge and watch with tables.
