Suunto, the world’s leading dive computer brand, has introduced a firmware update that brings various new features to the Suunto D9tx, D6i and D4i.
Already known for their stylish design and great functionality, Suunto’s D-Series dive computers are to benefit from several new features to make them even more user-friendly and attractive whether you’re an experienced technical diver, freediver or an adventurous spirit new to the diving world.
Pia Talja, Product Manager for Suunto says, “Suunto has worked for many years with the world’s best freediver William Trubridge and AIDA; the Worldwide Federation for breath-hold diving and is committed to offering features that best meet the needs of today’s freedivers in all Suunto D-series models. Among scuba divers the Suunto D6i is a tremendous success, and we wanted to make it even more relevant to advanced divers by adding one more gas.”
The new Suunto D-Series firmware update adds a host of great new functions for freedivers, technical divers, and first-timers alike. For freedivers, the Suunto D-Series products now include an innovative Apnea Timer function for static apnea interval training and a practical dive mode on/off function. The update to the Suunto D9tx, also adds Air Time to the mixed gas dive mode and Suunto’s dedicated freedive mode; while Suunto D6i owners can now configure three gases instead of two. The update also adds new time alarm modes for all Suunto D-Series computers.
Record-breaking freediver and Suunto Ambassador William Trubridge says: “Being able to turn dive mode on and off is invaluable for when I’m swimming or snorkeling and don’t want to log a lot of shallow dives. The Apnea Timer is also a brilliant piece of software that allows me to conduct freediving training tables from my wrist, or coach someone who is doing the same. With its intuitive software, pinpoint accuracy, clear display, sturdy design and numerous alarm functions the D6i is far and away the best gauge for freediving on the market.”
The firmware update will also be available to existing Suunto D9tx, D6i and D4i owners via Authorized Suunto Service Centers.
