Unfortunately when you reach a certain age, you suddenly find your arm is not quite long enough to easily read your computer as your eyesight changes. Large colourful OLED displays certainly help, but it seemed only the technical diving computers offered this feature until now.
Suunto has just launched the fully customisable Suunto EON. This stainless steel faced computer provides the diver eight different gas options (Oxygen 5 – 99%, Helium 0 – 95%) running on their Fused RGBM algorithm. The computer is depth rated to 150 metres / 492 feet and comes with four modes; air, nitrox, trimix and gauge and we gather there are plans for a CCR mode in the next few months.
