Software update brings gas time, CCR mode, real-time gas consumption and compass bearing lock.

Suunto EON Steel grows with you as your diving skills evolve, thanks to its customizability and durability. As communicated with its launch last fall, you can update the EON Steel software yourself. The update now coming out brings much sought after new features.

Gas time

The new gas time reading allows you to estimate how long you can continue diving, taking into account your current tank pressure value and breathing rate.

  Rebreather mode

Closed-circuit rebreather (CCR) mode makes Suunto EON Steel a great backup dive computer on rebreather dives. Combined with the Suunto Fused™ RGBM, the CCR features give you extra confidence on your rebreather dives.

Gas consumption

A first for dive computers, Suunto EON Steel calculates real-time gas consumption. As you improve your diving skills, you’ll see your comfort level reflected in the rate: the more relaxed you are, the less gas you consume.

Compass bearing lock

The new compass bearing lock helps you orientate yourself underwater and ensure you maintain your direction of travel. For example, you can set a bearing lock for the direction to the reef before leaving the boat.

You can download the free update to your EON Steel through the Suunto DM5 software.
