I'm guessing that he or she told you that for a few reasons. By nature, wetsuits are tight and not breathable. Plus they tend to be black. So if you are sitting in the sun for a long time, getting to a destination or waiting to dive, you could overheat and become dehydrated quickly. These are not problems you want to be dealing with when you are deep under water.

My aqualung duplex alternates flashing seconds then "ER"in the lower display window, I've reset it as the manual instructs, after pushing the stem back in it beeps twice then starts the same...

This watch needs to be sent back to the factory to get the movement replaced. I am doing this for the second time in 4 years. Citizen Europe states it's a defective design. The watch goes into dive mode with sweat, humidity and washing your hands. The water sensor tells the computer it's gone diving but the pressure sensor isn't telling it the same thing which causes a fault with the computer. I was told to cover the water sensor with WAX by the factory repair facility. WAX on a $400 dive watch. Great. They shold have used the pressure sensor to initiate dive mode. Customer Service said it wasn't defective, so it was designed to need this part everytime the battery has to bre replace.

Is the wetsuit actually to small for you? Wetsuits are fairly delicate, especially the thinner ones. Having a can of neoprene cement in your kit is a smart idea. Read the instructions on the can if you want it to work well.

How do use the latch on a tag heuer watch?

If you're question is about the extension links then it's only purpose is to fit on your wrist wearing a full wetsuit while scuba diving. When you're out of the wetsuit you simply tuck it inside the locking clasp hiding the links like a regular metal band. Hope this is the answer you are looking for.

Delicate electronics and acid (salt water) make poor companions. Any time you get a modern camera anywhere near the ocean it's only a matter of time until it's gets just a drop or two of sea water in the wrong place. One must consider a underwater camera a expendable item. As a retired SCUBA instructor/dive guide and repair tech, I, knowing exactly what to do and how to carefully prep a camera for under water use, have killed several.

Likely your son had a speck of dust or lint or a hair across the sealing surfaces when he closed up the camera. That's all it takes.

Contact the company about repair, but be ready to say "it's not worth it" and just get another camera. They ALL leak eventually, IMHO.
