Aqualung I300 Wrist Computer, Blue/Grey/Black Scuba Diving Custom
  • This watch also allows you to change the battery yourself with the supplied tool.
  • Device worked great. Took a little while to figure out what the LCD Text abbreviations stood for, but once I figured it out it was a breeze.
  • Self activated in the water, gave me the max depth and bottom time, as well as tracked when i needed a decompression on ascent, as well as how long it was.
  • This is a wrist watch depth gage I’ve looked at for a long time.
  • I hooked it on my BC strap so if my main computer had issues (as has happened in the past) I could continue diving. I liked that it was easy to set for nitrox.
Suunto Zoop Novo Dive Computer Wrist Watch
  • You can read up before you use it or just hit the water. It activates itself at about 2' and guides you from there.
  • Simple and friendly interface. I used this computer during our trip and info were consistent with my husband Aladin Scuba Pro computer.
  • It has all of the modes necessary for anyone but the most experienced technical diver.
  • I love my Suunto! It is great for all divers for just a general dive watch.
  • I'm happy with the watch. First 2 dives at about 8m Max depth.

What customers say about "Features"
Aqualung I300 Wrist Computer, Blue/Grey/Black Scuba Diving Custom
  • For the basic diver/Nitrox diver this is an amazing computer!! it is simple to operate and program.
  • The nitrogen calculation was on par with a friends mare puck. Believe this is a great device for the price and would recommend.
  • Display is light-induced glowing do help make it easier to see, has a colored tip to the hand and is clear.
  • It is large on wrist but so much easier to see than the smaller depth gage in consoles.
  • Worked well as we also got certified to dive with Nitrox. Worked great for both Air and Nitrox diving and warming alarms worked well underwater
  • If you are on your 2nd tank dive and you get a beep for nitrogen it goes into violation mode and locks up for 24 hours.
Suunto Zoop Novo Dive Computer Wrist Watch
  • Beeps at you if you are ascending too quickly. Beeps at you if you are about to pass no decomp bottom time.
  • The monitor is big and easy to read even in situation of low light or low visibility.
  • They are easy to use, and we really like the four button interface - it helps navigating around the software.
  • We also really enjoy the ability to do either electroluminescent OR phosphorescent back-light during night dives.
  • This is a very easy to use non-Aire integrated dive computer. The numbers are large and easy to read.
