Suunto has settled a class-action lawsuit in the United States regarding certain dive computer models that plaintiffs alleged were defective.
The models in question were built between January 1st, 2006 and August 10th, 2018, and include the Cobra, Cobra 2, Cobra 3, Cobra 3 Black, Vyper, Vyper Novo, Vyper 2, Vyper Air, HelO2, Gekko, Vytec, Vytec DS, Zoop, Zoop Novo, Mosquito, D4, D6, D9, D4i, D6i, D4i Novo, D6i Novo, D9tx, and DX.
The lawsuit claimed that those models that Suunto built and sold and Aqua Lung distributed and sold were defective, and the readings for depth and temperature were inaccurate.
While both Suunto and Aqua Lung denied that any wrongdoing was done and that any defect with respect to the depth pressure sensors existed, “The parties agreed to resolve these matters before these issues were decided by the Court.”
So if you bought a new dive computer (not a used one) in the USA (and not another country) in the specified time frame and it turns out that the depth pressure sensor doesn’t work properly, under the settlement you’re entitled to a free inspection and repair or even getting your dive computer replaced.
