No but if you dont have a diving suit or rebreathers your screen will start to fade to black as if losing oxygen.

That's off topic and unhelpful wood.

What he's conveying is divers have a gauge which allows them to read the time they have left oxygen wise.

While SCUBA-diving, oxygen levels should be shown in UI in my opinion. On the other hand, the symptoms of hypoxia are great when freediving. It feels pretty realistic when you start to suffer from hypoxia in the game (I freedive IRL).

I don't think there's a limit to your O2 as it is, but I would think that there would be a gauge added once there's a limit set (or vice versa).

Rebreathers work for a very long time (6-8 hrs straight).
Adding a gauge would make sense if it'd be a conventional breathing system.
Rebreathers recycle the air and add pure oxygen to it, thus giving no bubbles and having a much longer lifespan.

Hmm ok, I was not aware of that (no scuba experience). I know some Arma 2 games can last for hours (probably not 6-8 though).

How about anything that may expire within 3 hours has a gauge?

This suggestion was processed by our team and will be looked into. We thank you for your feedback.

Some games last 24+, or there are the MSO missions which people run for weeks before restarting.

If they can make it so bubbles appear, adding scuba gear would be neat and thus oxygen levels would be really necessary, but in a re breather, I have my doubts on how necessary a gauge is, even in an MSO event. I mean, to be in the water for 8 hours, that's using the same re breather for a helluva long time.

On the other hand, if you are on an aircraft carrier or something, they have small oxygen tanks that are kept strapped to your waist, that give you 20 or so minutes of oxygen. Those would definitely need a gauge in my opinion.

Some people like to swim

It would be nice if they could add a second watch that shows oxygen, compressed air, etc. Maybe even a third that shows the altitude when performing paradrops. I mean there is the watch slot might as well use it properly.
