Suunto have just announced the D5

It’s a dive computer and it looks to be built on the same hardware platform as the Suunto 9unsurprisingly. Having said that the D5 has a bigger case, although the screen size and resolution appears to be the same as with the Suunto 9.

The Suunto D5 has lots of dive-related functionality built on to what looks like the same original SPARTAN firmware that underpins the newish Suunto 9 multisports/outdoors watch.

Interestingly it is compatible with Suunto’s Tank POD to measure gas (tank) pressure and it links to that wirelessly underwater using an INDUCTIVE method – whatever that means! I can guess, and assume a communications method other than Bluetooth or ANT+ is required as those ssignals will not travel sufficiently far when underwater.

This competes directly with Garmin’s Descent Dive watch
