NEW from Suunto – the D5 – coming soon!



Suunto have started this year’s DEMA show with an exciting announcement – a brand new easy-to-use dive computer called the D5.

According to Suunto, the new D5 is “designed to be so clear and easy-to-use that you can just enjoy and focus on exploring the wonderful underwater world.”

The new D5 will combine ultra user-friendly features such as a rechargeble battery and brand new vibration alarm mode, with the very latest in digital tech.

Easy Diving: Follow your dive details on the super clear, high contrast color screen. Choose from four dive modes and browse the simple yet intuitive menu with three buttons to easily switch between views and settings.

Share with Friends: Transfer your dive logs easily over Bluetooth to your mobile after diving. In the Suunto app you can re-live your dives, add photos and share your underwater adventures with friends.

Match with your Style: Change the strap easily with the clever quick release system to fit your style. Choose a color that matches your diving gear or pick your favorite color silicone strap or leather to complete your casual style. The new D5 will come in in four colors: All Black, and Lime Black (premium models) and White and Black.

Wireless Connectivity: Follow your gas pressure conveniently straight from your wrist. Get tank pressure on your display wirelessly by pairing your D5 with the Suunto Tank POD before diving.
