The NEW sexy Suunto DX dive computer: now available at The Dive Bus!

The world’s first rebreather-compatible dive computer - AND it also tells the time! - now in stock at The Dive Bus

The Suunto DX (“D-ten”) is the world's first watch-sized rebreather-compatible dive computer, and covers all the bases in a stylish design that you can wear in and out of the water, that will make you the envy of your dive buddies!  Go from recreational open circuit diving to nitrox to trimix & rebreather diving all with just one convenient & accurate computer.

The Suunto DX is the very first of its kind to feature CCR compatibility. The premium design combined with the new, advanced Suunto Fused™ RGBM algorithm makes it the ultimate tool for open circuit and rebreather divers. And its stylish design means it’s suitable for wearing every day – especially in front of other divers ... ;o)

Mark's hoping to have one of his own
when he grows up and has a dive shop...

What also sets the Suunto DX apart is the new, advanced Suunto Fused™ RGBM algorithm that Suunto developed with Dr. Bruce Wienke. It seamlessly combines the benefits of the Suunto Technical RGBM with the latest full RGBM for deep dives. It has rebreather capability and supports dives down to 150m. 

With no input required from the diver, Suunto Fused™ RGBM automatically switches between the two modes to effectively manage the risks of decompression sickness. The new algorithm provides a slow continuous ascent from depth so technical and deep divers have a shorter total decompression time. It’s also suitable for recreational divers, helping to maximize bottom time and minimize ascent time, so they can get the most out of their dives.

The Suunto DX is a non-monitoring setpoint dive computer that works as a support computer for the rebreather. It also contains all the advanced dive functions for open-circuit divers such as trimix support including helium and oxygen, and gas switching between up to 8 gases to satisfy the needs of any diver. The Suunto DX comes in a stylish look. With a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal glass, titanium case and optional titatium bracelet, it's extremely robust. As with all Suunto diving computers it went through a rigorous testing program, including over 1,000 field test dives. 

Suunto Ambassador and leading underwater explorer Jill Heinerth helped to develop the Suunto DX. “The Suunto DX is one of my support computers that go with my rebreather. It’s easy to integrate it into a rebreather dive plan, or any dive plan – open or closed circuit. It has one of the most accurate digital compasses, which I use to survey and make maps as well. It can really do anything, and it’s a beautiful, wearable watch. It has everything you need in a very small package, and it handles itself well under any conditions.”
