The EON Core joins the EON Steel. (Suunto's first fully customisable dive computer launched in 2015, with a depth rating of 150 mt / 492 ft and a 20 - 40 hour battery life). The Suunto EON Core has been designed to be an entry level computer that grows with the diver throughout their diving career. From a shallow, open water, bubble blowing diver, up to and including CCR trimix diving to 80 mt / 262 feet.
This idea is not new. There are already a number of dive computers that will support a diver as their experience levels change. So what makes the Suunto EON Core unique?
- Water Resistance: 80 mt / 262 ft
- Colours: Black, White, Lime Green
- Reinforced Composite Case
- Mineral Crystal Glass
- Elastomer Strap with the potential to swap out to a Bungee Strap
- Weight: 154 gm / 5.43 oz

- Tilt compensated 3D digital compass

The Finnish manufacturer has identified a potential safety risk affecting all Suunto Wireless Tank Pressure Transmitters and Suunto Tank PODs that wirelessly transmit cylinder pressure to compatible Suunto dive computers.
In two reported incidents the exterior case of a Suunto Wireless Tank Pressure Transmitter has failed during regular dry land pressure testing. Although extremely rare, there is the potential for injury because of the risk of bursting.
The Finnish manufacturer launched their first freediving computer - the D3 - back in March 2003. Fourteen years on, they have unveiled their second freediving computer.
The D4f. This, like its ancestor, the D3, is specifically designed for apnea divers and water sports enthusiasts. The D4f takes its inspiration from the D4i model, however it it is not a decompression computer, nor does it have an air integration function.
Suunto is like Kellogg’s cornflakes to me—a brand that has been with me, like, forever. Well, perhaps not quite that long, but at least since my early diving days, now obscured in the fog of memory. Several decades down the line, I am now on my fourth instrument. Not that I have actually worn out any of them; they have all been good and reliable companions.
