Learn how to pair your Suunto EON Steel and EON Core dive computer with Suunto app.
As some of the steps will require actions on the app, you can open the same FAQ article on our website.
Prepare your dive computer for pairing:
If your dive computer has been paired with another mobile app e.g. Suunto Movescount App, unpair your dive computer as follows:
- Ensure you have the latest software installed on your dive computer. Please connect your device to DM5 and check if an update is available for your watch.
- On your dive computer: Enter the menu and open General > Connectivity > Forget mobile.
- On your phone:
In your mobile device settings, go to Bluetooth and remove your watch from the list of paired devices by tapping the info-icon and then Forget this device.
- Un-install Movescount App from your phone.
- Restart your phone.
Unfortunately, we cannot recommend having both Suunto app and Movescount app installed on the same phone as it will cause problems with your dive computer, and app connectivity. Learn more about how to use Suunto app and Suunto Movescount together.

- When your dive computer appears in the list of devices tap PAIR. If more than one device is listed, select your dive computer based on the serial number shown at the backside of your product.
- Enter the passkey shown on your dive computer into the pairing request field on your mobile device and tap PAIR.
