The DX is the very first of its kind to feature CCR compatibility. This is a non-monitoring setpoint dive computer that works as a support computer for the rebreather to 150 metres. It also contains all the advanced dive functions for open-circuit divers such as trimix support including helium and oxygen, with the capability of 8 gas switches.

Suunto Fused™ RGBM algorithm

The DX benefits from the new, advanced Suunto Fused™ RGBM algorithm. This algorithm was developed by Suunto in conjunction with Dr. Bruce Wienke. Suunto state that it seamlessly combines the benefits of the Suunto Technical RGBM with the latest full RGBM for deep dives. With no input from the diver, Suunto Fused™ RGBM automatically switches between the two modes to effectively manage the risks of decompression sickness. The new algorithm provides a slow continuous ascent from depth so technical and deep divers have a shorter total decompression time. It is also suitable for recreational divers, helping to maximise bottom time and minimize ascent time, so they can get the most out of their hobby.

Jill Heinerth, We are Water, Into the Planet, Suunto, cave explorer, underwater photographer, diving cinematographer, RF3 Lectures, Rebreather Forum 3,Rosemary E Lunn, Roz Lunn, The Underwater Marketing Company, TUMCSuunto Ambassador and leading cave explorer Jill Heinerth helped to develop the Suunto DX. “The Suunto DX is one of my support computers that go with my rebreather. It’s easy to integrate it into a rebreather dive plan, or any dive plan – open or closed circuit. It has one of the most accurate digital compasses, which I use to survey and make maps as well. It can really do anything, and it’s a beautiful, wearable watch. It has everything you need in a very small package, and it handles itself well under any conditions.
