Equipment Test: Suunto EON Core on location in Truk Lagoon (Watch Video)



Following the Suunto EON Core launch day back in September which Scubaverse covered here, we were so lucky to get two of the new units to play with in Truk Lagoon while diving the amazing,  famous Japanese wrecks.

As the diving we had planned was all ‘Technical Diving,’ it gave us a great opportunity to put the EON Core through its paces, and really test this fancy new computer on some deep and challenging dives whilst racking up some serious deco times.

The other great point is we dive with the EON Steel as our main unit, so this gave us some really good comparisons to work with and a top end unit to use as a bench-mark.

See what we thought of the EON Core and how it fares against its bigger brother in our video below:
