    This Computer is INCREDIBLE!, April 24, 2016

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    I bought this dive computer for a shore diving trip to Bonaire. This is the safest piece of scuba gear i own! The left side has a color bar graph that makes sure that you don’t ascend too fast. Green is good and getting yellow is getting fast and red is too fast. Once it starts turning yellow, you exhale and go slightly down to keep it in the green, ascend slow and avoid ascent warnings.

    There is also the safety stop information. I would often stay at between 50 and 65 feet. The top of the screen tells you what your next stop is. Normally it would say 35 feet.You go up slow and at 35 feet it begins a countdown. When that is completed the screen would indicate 10, or 10 feet. That would be your final stop.

    The sender operated flawlessly to send my tank pressure to the computer. We dove Nitrox and the sender sensed Nitrox instead of Regular air. When I got home I hooked up the computer to Suunto DM5 and it downloaded all of the dives automatically. No ascent warnings.

    This computer is expensive, but your dive safety is WELL worth it.

    Best Dive Computer on the Market Today, January 27, 2015
    By 
    WeaselSW (Chicago, IL) –

    I have been a diver for over 18 years, starting back in the days when we had to use dive tables to calculate dive times. With dive computers, all that has changed!

    My first dive computer was the Suunto Vyper Air, which was decent and did what it was supposed to do, but wasn’t exciting at all and the interface was clunky and complicated. The Suunto EON Steel is a HUGE improvement! I pre-ordered the EON Steel at a local dive shop and was excited that they got a few units in before the most recent anticipated “Spring, 2015” release date. Suunto delayed the original release date by over 6 months, which although was disappointing, it shows that Suunto will not release their product until they have fully quality tested it, which in this day and age of easy software and firmware updates is often overlooked (hint hint Garmin!). So, for me, I am glad that they didn’t release it until they were satisfied it was working perfectly, and trust me, it was worth the wait!

    HARDWARE: Right out of the box, the EON Steel is an impressive dive instrument. First off, its heavier than you would anticipate for its size, which for me is not a drawback… you can’t even feel its weight when in the water. Overall, it has an extremely sturdy feel and you can tell that its well built just by holding it. The three buttons on the right are laid out well, and have nice and subtle click when you press them in. The computer/charging cable connection is much better than previous Suunto computers as well… it is basically a large-scale USB connection that accepts a proprietary cable which connects to your computer. Previous Suunto computers (at least my experience with the Vyper Air) had such a clunky connection that fit around the unit, and dropped data connections were regular occurrences. On the EON Steel, however, the connection is solid and to date there has been no dropped data connections.

    SETUP & INTERFACE: Upon turning on the EON Steel, it has a brilliant color screen (brightness can be adjusted Low, Mid, High for a battery/performance balance). The interface takes you right into a setup menu to specify units, time and date format, tones, etc. The setup is easy and straightforward. When in the interface, Suunto has really put thought into the layout and making it easy for the user, while in the same time displaying all the information effectively. The layout can be configured to two different setup options, a graphical layout and a statistical layout (which they call Classic). The graphical layout truly does separate this model from anything else on the market! It can display tank pressure (with the transmitter installed), a compass, a no deco timetable, or a timer, all on an easy to read “analog type” gauge reading. You can have up to 4 screens to display each of these different readings, which while diving can be selected by pressing the middle button. Statistical “Classic” screens can also be used (which display the same amount of information) for those who would rather just see the numbers rather than gauge readings. By pressing the top button, it activates or stops a timer which can be used for anything while diving, and by holding in the button, it resets the timer.

    CONFIGURATIONS: All configurations are setup through their software (DM5) which can be downloaded from the Suunto website for free. When the EON Steel is connected to your computer, the software allows you to configure not only the amount and type of screens, but also the components that are displayed. You can create multiple dive profiles, and upload them to the EON Steel to easily switch depending on the type of dive. Information configuration is also a nice feature, but fairly limited. For instance, on the upper-left corner, you can choose to display Battery life, Battery life + Time, or Battery Life + Temp. On the lower-left corner, you can display other information such as temp, temp + time, CNS, OTU, PO2, etc. One of the best customization features is the lower-right corner, which is a checkbox custom field where you can check as many different types of information as you want (Avg depth, CNS, Current gas, Dive time, Max depth, OTU, PO2, temp, timer to be exact). When you check multiple items, a simple press of the bottom button while diving cycles though the checked information. Very handy if you want all the info at your fingertips without switching over the entire screen. One drawback, however, is although there are many customizations for information, I found that the software is still a bit limited as to what can be displayed in which corners. For instance, if you want to display the time in the lower-left rather than upper-left, it is not one of the options so you are out of luck. Since the screen is basically a TFT display, I’m not sure why Suunto would limit the options for each of the fields. It’s a minor drawback, however, and one that may be fixed with a future update…
