What customers say about "Key Specs"
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.
Mares Puck Pro Wrist Computer
  • During ascent, it displays the rate in feet/minute and has a bar graph display as well. If you exceed 30 ft./min (or 40 if you go beyond a certain depth), it beeps to warn you and you have to slow down.
  • The rubber strap is a really good quality- not too stiff, not too sticky and with enough adjustment to fit over bulky suits.
  • Computer starts either manually or automatically with submersion, a nice feature. Fairly nice display, well laid out for each mode.
  • I just got it so haven't had a chance to use it. I did go through the settings, modes and features and it seems to be very straight forward in what it will do.
  • Just completed a weekend dive trip with seven dives using this computer. It was an altitude dive in freshwater, 60' depth, and 73 degree water.

What customers say about "Features"
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.
Mares Puck Pro Wrist Computer
  • PLANNER is awesome. Go there, and based upon your last dive, SI, desaturation time, etc., it tells you, once you scroll to the depth you intend to dive
  • ALARMS are for rapid ascent (30 feet/minute), exceeding a safe pp02 for EAN dives, CNS=100% 02 toxicity, a missed decompression stop, and low battery during a dive.
  • It's easy to use, the display makes sense and is readable and it doesn't inundate you with too much info.
  • Underwater, the large face is very easy to read, and has a backlight if you push the red button.
  • All the dive plan calculations, dive times, depth, alerts/alarms, temperature, altitude adjustments, safety stop timer, and digital readings were spot on.
