The worlds first All-in-one dive computer
Suunto D9 is the worlds first dive computer to integrate a digital compass and wireless tank data reception.
Underwater a diver must monitor several gauges to receive the crucial information about the dive: depth, time, tank pressure, decompression status and direction to name just a few. Suunto D9 combines all dive-critical information in one instrument, conveniently mounted on your wrist. Instead of monitoring a multitude of gauges, you can concentrate on what is important - diving.
Suunto D9 is the worlds first dive computer to incorporate a digital compass. The compass shows the general direction with a graphical compass rose, as well as the exact bearing with a numerical display. Headings can be stored in Suunto D9s memory for later analysis. The compass can naturally be used on land too.
By using Suunto D9s optional wireless transmitter, the diver can also monitor tank pressure and air consumption data from the wrist. The remaining tank pressure is displayed both numerically and graphically, and an estimation of the remaining air-time is given throughout the dive. This allows the diver to monitor the remaining air supply at the same time as he monitors depth and time. Real time air consumption is also stored in the memory.
Suunto D9 can be used with up to three different gas mixes containing 21-100% oxygen, allowing gas switching during the dive. Decompression calculations are based on the Suunto Deep Stop RGBM model, which provides iterative deep stops as an alternative to traditional safety stops. For those intending to go really deep, the maximum depth display is set at 200m [660ft].
In addition to basic dive data, the built-in dive logbook provides a graphical dive profile where real time water temperature and tank pressure data can be analyzed on the wristop computer. The sampling rate can be set to as low as 1s.
The beautifully designed Suunto D9 has a titanium housing and includes an USB-compatible PC interface and the Suunto Dive Manager 2.0 software. Suunto D9 has two different straps to choose from - the traditional black elastomer as well as the luxury titanium strap.
Instead of monitoring information from several sources, Suunto D9 provides you with all the crucial information from a single source, conveniently mounted on your wrist.
The integrated digital compass can be accessed from both DIVE and TIME modes, and provides a graphical compass rose display and numerically displayed bearings. Bearings can be locked, and visual aids are provided for navigating set courses or for pattern navigation. Headings can be stored in the memory for later analysis using the memory functions or the PC interface.
Suunto D9 can be used with the optional Suunto Wireless Transmitter. When enabled it provides the diver with tank pressure and air-time information, as well as a tank pressure bar graph. Real-time tank pressure data is stored in the memory, and can be later analyzed using the memory or PC interface functions.
Three different operating modes are available: Air, Nitrox and Gauge.
The air mode is for diving with standard air, whereas the nitrox mode provides an option for using up to three different gas mixes during the dive.
The gauge mode has several applications, such as for freediving. The profile-sampling rate can be set to as low as 1s, and the ascent rate monitoring can be disabled. The gauge mode also provides a dual display stopwatch, which allows the timing of underwater activities to the second. The maximum depth display of Suunto D9 is 200m/660ft.
Suunto D9 provides the user with an option to use traditional safety-stops, or to use deep stops. The deep stops are calculated iteratively throughout the dive, and the deep stop time can be set to 1 or 2min. The decompression calculations are based on the Suunto RGBM (Reduced Gradient Bubble Model).
The matrix display provides outstanding possibilities for post-dive analysis of the recorded information. In the memory mode the actual dive profile is graphically displayed, together with real time depth, time, tank pressure and temperature data. Locked compass bearings are also displayed in the profile.
The housing of Suunto D9 is made of titanium, with some stainless steel inserts. The display is made of scratch resistant mineral crystal glass, and the pressure rating is 20atm.
Suunto D9 comes with a USB-compatible PC-interface and the new Suunto Dive Manager 2.0 software.
Suunto D9 is the ultimate instrument of choice for all kinds of recreational, military and professional divers. Competitive divers such as freedivers, as well as technical divers, who do not compromise when it comes to the quality, materials and functionality of their equipment, will find Suunto D9 an invaluable diving aid.
Whether diving in familiar waters or exploring unknown oceans, safety is essential. Suunto D9 is packed with solutions that enable safe and responsible decisions underwater. The depth, time and decompression data, combined with the compass and air integration ensure that you know exactly how much time you can spend underwater, how deep you are, when you have to surface and how fast you can ascend. This way you can maximize your diving performance without jeopardizing your safety.
The extensive memory and logbook functions enable you to keep track of your previous dives and through them you can monitor your progress and plan your training accordingly.
