Suunto Dive Computer in Malaysia



Suunto Dive Computers are one of the best diving comps I have used to date. I recently purchased a Suunto D6i and used it for my last three dives in East Malaysia and found it to be very accurate. Of course, I got the Black and Silver D6i as I use it on a daily basis even when I am not diving.

Prior to getting the D6i, I was thinking about getting the Zoop just for diving, but after talking to many other experienced divers and dive instructors in Malaysia, they advised me to get something a little better since I dive quite frequently. Coming in between, I finally settled for the D6i and till date, it is an amazing dive computer. I guess for me, the next level would be upgrading to a Suunto D9tx. Below are the comparisons among the four main Suunto dive computers available in Malaysia.

Suunto D4i Nova Watch in Malaysia

Suunto D4i Novo

New in the market for 2014 is the Suunto D4i Novo Dive Computer Watch. The dive computer features stay the same, but they now come in fresh new colors and design. The new-look Suunto D4i is available in black, white, blue and lime. As well as the renewed design, the Suunto D4i Novo also features an all new, soft silicone strap, ensuring maximum comfort as well as a superb fit. The case and strap are color-matched for a consistent look, bezel and mask prints are new and the buttons are made of metal.

Suunto D4i in 6 colors (No longer in stock)

Note: There are many colors which are unavailable right now as the new replacement came into the market early 2014. The old D4i is replaced with the new Suunto D4i Novo.

This will suit those who prefer something that may match their dive equipment or even if you have a favourite color.  Personally women divers will go for the bright colors as I have seen many using the Pink D4i during my many dives. Please note that the optional wireless air integration cannot be used for the old D4 and D6 models.
