Before you dive

Make sure that you fully understand the use, displays and limitations of your dive instruments. If you have any questions about this manual or the dive computer, contact your Suunto dealer before diving with the dive computer. Always remember that YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR OWN SAFETY!

Safety precautions

WARNING:

ONLY TRAINED DIVERS SHOULD USE A DIVE COMPUTER! Insufficient training for any kind of diving may cause a diver to commit errors that may lead to serious injury or death.

WARNING:

You must read the printed quick guide and online user guide for your dive computer. Failure to do so may lead to improper use, serious injury or death.

WARNING:

THERE IS ALWAYS A RISK OF DECOMPRESSION SICKNESS (DCS)! An individual’s physiological make up can vary from day to day. The dive computer cannot account for these variations. You are strongly advised to remain well within the exposure limits provided by the instrument to minimize the risk of DCS. As an added measure of safety, you should consult a physician regarding your fitness before diving.

WARNING:

If you have a pacemaker, we recommend you do not dive. Diving creates physical stresses on the body which may not be suitable for pacemakers.

WARNING:

If you have a pacemaker, consult a doctor before using this device. The inductive frequency used by the device may interfere with pacemakers.

WARNING:

Allergic reactions or skin irritations may occur when product is in contact with skin, even though our products comply with industry standards. In such event, stop use immediately and consult a doctor.

WARNING:

Not for professional use! Suunto dive computers are intended for recreational use only. The demands of commercial or professional diving may expose the diver to depths and conditions that tend to increase the risk of decompression sickness (DCS). Therefore, Suunto strongly recommends that the device not be used for any commercial or professional diving activities.

WARNING:

USE BACKUP INSTRUMENTS! Ensure that you use backup instrumentation, including a depth gauge and a timer or watch.

WARNING:

For safety reasons, you should never dive alone. Dive with a designated buddy. You should also stay with others for an extended time after a dive as the onset of possible DCS may be delayed or triggered by surface activities.

WARNING:

PERFORM PRE-CHECKS! Always check that your dive computer is functioning properly before diving. Check that the display is working, the battery level is OK, and so forth.

WARNING:

Check your dive computer regularly during a dive. If you believe or conclude that there is any problem with any computer function, abort the dive immediately and safely return to the surface. Call Suunto Customer Support and return your computer to an authorized Suunto Service Center for inspection.

WARNING:

DO NOT EXPOSE ANY PART OF YOUR DIVE COMPUTER TO ANY GAS MIX CONTAINING MORE THAN 40% OXYGEN! Enriched air with greater oxygen content presents a risk of fire or explosion and serious injury or death.

WARNING:

Do not use Suunto USB Cable in areas where flammable gases are present. Doing so may cause an explosion.

WARNING:

Do not disassemble or remodel Suunto USB Cable in any way. Doing so may cause an electric shock or fire.

WARNING:

Do not use Suunto USB cable if cable or parts are damaged.

CAUTION:

DO NOT allow the connector pins of the USB cable to touch any conductive surface. This may short circuit the cable, making it unusable.
