Suunto – the diving computer manufacturer – has been getting ready to release a new freediving only wrist computer – the Suunto D4f.  The rumored computer was spotted at BOOT 2017 and details are now becoming available.

According to information available on the Suunto website – it will be built on the hugely successful D4i platform and will feature freediving only functionality and alarms.  When diving, the D4f displays your present and maximum depth and calculates dive time and surface intervals for you, allowing you to fully concentrate on exploring the underwater world. It also features an apnea timer to improve your breathing technique. After the dive you can browse the details of your dive from the logbook.

The device will be launched on 27th February according to company representatives with pricing at €329 (Euro), $449.95 (USD) and £275 (GBP).
