If so, in what situations?

Yes, I have one on my console and when I upgraded to a wrist mount I just kept using both, why not? It can't hurt having a back up anyways. I recently just used a cobra and had the computer depth gauge go out on me. I wished at that time I had my wrist one on. Lesson learned.

Yes, if I'm on a deeper/more technical dive or if I want to get used to a new computer (that way I can compare it to a more familiar one)

No, but I have an analog console as a backup. Different computers may use different algorithms so it can be confusing. I'll plan my dive with tables, and use my computer as a backup.

No. I dive with a plan, a diving watch with elapsed time bezel and a submersible pressure gauge

I used a dive watch with computer and a regular console mount dive computer.  I like redundancy

Always, Just another safety factor.
