Reviewer: Marco S.  -  View all my reviews
I havent used this article yet, but since I bought it to replace my identical first one, I can review it anyway. The reason I had to replace the first one is also the only downside: the do-it-yourself battery replacement isnt real. I bought the official Suunto replacement kit (battery, o-ring, etc.), had the proper tools and am generally pretty skilled in these matters. But on the first dive with the new battery and o-ring, the computer flooded and the combination of salt water and a brand-new battery made such a mess in the battery compartment that I decided to just buy a new one. So dont repeat my mistake and spend the few extra bucks to send it in for replacement. Otherwise great value for the money!

Reviewer: Richard H.  -  View all my reviews
I have dove the same Zoop for almost four years and still going strong. Guiding dives every week and the battery always lasts longer than my friends. Intuitive pathways for changing air to Nitrox settings. They are priced so well I just bought another Zoop as a backup.

Rating: Very solid for beginner
Reviewer: Louis P.
Weve been open certified and I needed a computer that was easy to understand and learn and the Zoop has been a great pick. Ive already used the log and many features and everything has worked exactly like it should. Ive even compared a dive log with a divemasters watch (also a Suunto) and the information was identical. This is an excellent choice for a diver starting out (or anyone for that matter).

Questions and Answers for Suunto ZOOP Air / Nitrox Wrist Computer:


  • DAVID:

    HOW MUCH THIS COMPUTER?

    Bob  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    For questions regarding pricing and availability of products please contact our instructors at 800-347-2822 (800-34SCUBA) or by email at info@scuba.com

  • Jamie:

    How conservative is the Zoop algorithm? Im tired of my super conservative computer that has me ending a dive with 1000+ psi

    Greg  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    The Suunto RGBM is a highly accurate, but conservative diving computer. If you have reached the point in your diving where nitrogen tissue loading is the limiting factor and not air consumption, I would recommend using Nitrox air blends.

  • GP:

    Does this computer have a watch feature built into it meaning can I use it as a watch? Does it have a true back light or does it use "glow in the dark" illumination? Thanks

    Greg  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    The Zoop uses glow in the dark technology.

  • GP:

    Does this computer have a "wrist watch"feature?

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello GP, yes this will tell you the date and time. Plus this will do everything in your dive but tell you your air pressure. That you will need a gauge for. If you would like to place an order or have any other questions please feel free to give us a call at 1.800.347.2822.

  • Mike:

    Is this a suitable computer for an experienced diver who isnt particularly tech savvy? (needs to intuitive and easy to use) if not is there more suitable model?

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Mike, yes this would be a very good computer as long as you do not need it to read your air pressure. That you will need some type of analog gauge. If you would like to place an order or have any other questions please feel free to give us a call at 1.800.347.2822.

  • Gary:

    Is there a low battery warning and how early will it notify? Also, my wife has a very small wrist. Will the ZOOP accommodate?

    Arthur  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    yes there is a battery indicator. and the wrist strap is very adjustable.

  • Ethel:

    i want to purchase a divewatch however, dont know anything about them. it is a gift to my granddaughter who is in college & just was certified in scuba. she is studying marine biology. i want to buy in the $200-$350 range. can you give me the two best in the price range? thanks

    Bob  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    There is no true "two best" or best in the price range. All computers in the category are very good, high quality products. There are slight differences between each. For more information on specific products or comparisons between them, please contact our instructors at 800-34SCUBA or info@scuba.com

  • Sh:

    Does the zoop have an audible ascent alarm and does is shut down completely after a certain point or does it just go into sleep mode with the time and date continuing to show like the favors?

    Bill  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Yes it offers audible alarms, and will shut off completely. The dive computer features audible alarms to advise when important limits are approached or to acknowledge preset alarms. A short single beep occurs, when: • the dive computer is activated. • when the dive computer automatically returns to the TIME mode Three single beeps with a two second interval occurs, when: • the no-decompression dive turns into a decompression stop dive. An arrow pointing upwards and the blinking ascent warning ASC TIME will appear (Fig. 3.15.). Continuous beeps for 5 seconds occur, when: • the maximum allowed ascent rate, 10 m/min [33 ft/min], is exceeded. SLOW and STOP warnings will appear (Fig. 3.12.). • the Mandatory Safety Stop ceiling is exceeded. A downward pointing arrow will appear (Fig. 3.14.). • the decompression ceiling depth is exceeded. An error warning Er and a downward pointing arrow appear. You should immediately descend to, or below, the ceiling. The instrument will otherwise enter a permanent Error Mode within three minutes, indicated by a permanent Er (Fig. 3.18.). You are able to preset alarms before the actual dive. The user programmable alarms can be set for maximum depth and dive time. The alarms activate when: • The preset maximum depth is reached • continuous beep series for 24 seconds or until any button is pressed. • the maximum depth blinks as long as the present depth value exceeds the adjusted value. • The preset dive time is reached • continuous beep series for 24 seconds or until any button is pressed. • the dive time blinks for one minute, if no button is pressed OXYGEN ALARMS IN NITROX MODE Three double beeps for 5 seconds occur, when: • the OLF bar graph reaches 80%. The segments exceeding the 80% limit start to blink (Fig. 3.23.) • the OLF bar graph reaches 100%. The blinking of the segments exceeding 80% will stop, when the OLF is not loading anymore. At that point the PO2 is less than 0.5 bar. Continuous beeps for 3 minutes occur, when: • the set oxygen partial pressure limit is exceeded. The maximum depth is replaced with a current blinking PO2 value. You should immediately ascend above the PO2 depth limit (Fig. 3.23.). WARNING WHEN THE OXYGEN LIMIT FRACTION INDICATES THAT THE MAXIMUM LIMIT IS REACHED, YOU MUST IMMEDIATELY ASCEND UNTIL THE WARNING STOPS BLINKING! Failure to do so may lead to improper use, serious injury or death.

  • Brian:

    Does it have the option to show your depth in feet not meters. I noticed all the pictures are in meters.

    Arthur  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    yes it does.

  • Jaye:

    I am comparing this Suunto with the Oceanic 2.0 with a similar price point to be given to 2 teens who have recently been adv open water certified. Due to their age they cannot exceed 60 ft max depth for a couple more years. I want them to get comfortable with diving with a little "smart technology" that wont break the bank versus the tedious dive tables which they both handle well. Q1. These both sound reliable perhaps too conservative would either of these computers make sense for this new divers? Any other suggestions? Q2. Can either or both be shut off to conserve battery when not in use between dive trips? Q3. If the answer to Q2 is no, how long will the battery last?

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Jaye, answer to question one: you can adjust this on the computer to make it more conservative or as liberal as you like. The answer to question 2 and 3 is: Once the computer has sat for awhile it will go into sleep mode to help conserve battery life but it does not total shut off. So it would depend on how often you dive when you would have to change out the battery. If you do more than 50 dive a year then you would need to change this around 8-12 months. If you only do dives every few weeks-months then you will get about 12-24 months of battery life. I would suggest the ZOOP it is a more user friendly computer than the Oceanic computer.

  • sam:

    it **does** ship with the wristband, yes? also, i have a question about shipping (within the u.s.): its not clear to me which service you use for two- or three-day delivery. assuming you use fedex or ups, can i specify that id like to pick the shipment up at their facility, and not have it delivered to my door? im going to order nearly $1000 or gear from your shop soon, and i live in an apartment with a not-too-bright "management" staff. id rather the shipment wasnt just ped off in front of my door.

    Bob  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    yes. It is a wrist computer. For more details on shipping methods please contact our instructors at info@scuba.com. The Ask the Experts is intended to be an ongoing knowledge database and something like our shipping method can change without notice.

  • Rick:

    What are the dimensions of the ZOOP computer? I have a older Suunto console that had the older Favor dive computer, which died, in it and was wondering if the ZOOP dive computer would fit in the older console? Also what are the advantages from the Favor to the ZOOP?

    Bill  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    The Zoop is Air and Nitrox compatible as the Favor is just Air. You would have to contact Aqualung to see if it would fit in the older boot. http://www.aqualung.com/us/content/view/204/310/

  • Gil:

    The new black version is a different shape. Aside for that, are there any differences?

    Bill  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    The Black and Orange Zoops on our site are the same computer.

  • Patrick:

    Will the zoop fit in my consol to replace my oceanic veo?

    Aaron  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hi Patrick, The Zoop will not fit into the Oceanic console. The Zoop is a larger computer.

  • Gene:

    Does the Suunto Zoop have an audible ascent rate alarm, and if so, when, or under what circumstances is it activated. In the questions and answers sections, one of your employees (Bill?) states that it does not, but I was almost certain that I had read that it did. Thanks in advance.

    Bob  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    It does have audible warnings.

  • Kris:

    Does this computer track surface intervals? Trying to decide between Mares puck pro, Mares pro air, and Sunto Zoop. For two teenage boys who are beginner divers.

    Arthur  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    yes it does

  • Alex:

    I need to know the diameter of the circular face from outside edges of the Zoop so I can determine whether it will fit the hole in my console. I believe the specified dimensions of 60MM include the strap attachment points and the face is smaller.

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Alex, the face of the computer is 2.5" dia.

  • Steve:

    Does the Zoop have a compass?

    Arthur  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello, no it does not.

  • Sonja:

    I bought the ZOOP based on reading all the reviews. I used this in Hawaii and the computer was so conservative I had decomp stops for 6 minutes while everyone else was at 3. The divemaster did change the settings to make them as less conservative as possible and I still was having to do extra decomp time - while I kept the exact same dive profile as everyone else. I resorted to using an Oceanic that the dive shop was supplying just to see the difference. Is there anything else I can change on the ZOOP? I even set it for Nitrox to see if it would get me better time and it didnt. Any suggestions before I throw in the towel and buy an Oceanic?

    Arthur  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello, I''ve been diving a suunto for 15 years and am on the same page. Suunto is set very conservatively and you cannot change the tables they use. Oceanic computers allows you to select between conservative and aggressive dive algorithms.

  • Erin:

    Can I buy the wireless transmitter for this unit to read pressure?

    Bob  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    No. The Zoop is a stand-alone computer and is not air integrated.

  • Ben:

    What would you choose for a beginner/intermediate diver, the Oceanic Geo 2.0 or the Suunto ZOOP?

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Ben, it depends on if you are looking for a wrist watch style (Geo 2.0) that you can wear also as a day to day watch. Or if you are looking for the larger display (2.5") computer. If you are just looking for a dive computer then I would suggest the the ZOOP.

  • Alex:

    Can this be set to display in feet as well as meters?

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Alex, yes you can change the settings to read either imperial or metric.

  • Bob:

    How long of an inactivity period before the Zoop shuts down? Does the Zoop consume battery power during the shutdown period. I am asking these questions to determine if I should remove the battery if I dive only once or twice a year.

    Chance  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    After a dive this computer will go into time to fly mode for 24 hours. After those 24 hours the computer will shut down, and it will not consume any battery.

  • Daneen:

    Can I replace the pressure gauge in my Suunto console boot with the Zoop computer?

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Daneen, no the computer is larger than the boot slot on your console.

  • Larry:

    Can the Zoop accomidate altitude dives?

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Larry, yes it would calculate the altitude that you are at and calculate your dive time.

  • Steve:

    What does it all come with? Just the watch? How does it hook up to your tank?

    Arthur  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    it doesn''t attach to your tank it is just the wrist unit.

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Steve, this is just a wrist mount dive computer this would not be able to tell you the air pressure in your tank. You would need a analog gauge to tell you your air pressure. Now if you are looking for a wrist computer that will tell you your air pressure you would a computer that has the option of a transmitter that transmitter would replace your high pressure hose and analog gauges: http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-17/009442/Suunto-Vyper-Air-Nitrox-Hoseless-Wrist-Computer-with-Digital-Compass.html.

  • Steve:

    So the computer does not need to be hooked up to the tank to tell you how much are you have left? So the computer just bases everything off of the pressure and the only reason why you needed hooked up is to tell you air pressure? I am new to this, I just wanna get something that is easy to use and something that will work down to 180 to 200 feet with the different mixes.

    Arthur  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    you would need a analog gauge to see your tank pressure. This one is hoseless and would show you tank pressure in PSI and minutes. http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-17/009442-009417-0700693/Suunto-Vyper-Air-Nitrox-Hoseless-Wrist-Computer-with-Transmitter.html

  • Mark:

    I am considering buying either the Suunto Zoop or the Mares wide. I would like to know if the usb interface is a must have or are they both self sufficient without it? Question 2, I just got adv open certified and will be taking my nitrox cert this spring, which one is the most user friendly and will grow with my future certs. Thank you

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Mark, the interface is if you want to download your dive history into your home or laptop computer. If you are not going to download your dive you would not need this. As for the one the is more user friendly that would be the Suunto Zoop.

  • Tomoko:

    Hi, I am looking for this ZOOP computer with low price, and find your website. I always dive in Izu Penisula, Japan. As you know, we use "meter" and "Celsius temperature scale". Can I use those "meter", "Celsuis temperature scale" when I buy this from your site? I have bought dive computer (TUSA IQ850) from US online site, it display feet, and degree Fareheit. regards, Tomo

    Chance  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Yes this computer is user changeable to metric which displays air pressure in BAR, depth in meters, and temperature in Celsius.

  • Scott:

    Will the Suunto Zoop fit in a console that held a (now non-working) Suunto Gekko?

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Scott, the Zoop is a larger computer and would not fit inside that console hole.

  • Paddy:

    Sounds like a great computer...butbwhy is it so cheap?? What are the major differences between the ZOOP and a $800 wrist computer?

    Chance  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    It is a great computer. The major differences are the features. This does not have some of the features that a more expensive computer would have such as monitoring your air or a digital compass.

  • Aaron:

    Does the ZOOP software work with Mac computers or is it only compatible with PCs?

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Aaron, yes you can download this to a MAC computer. If you go to: http://www.suunto.com/en-US/Support/Suunto-DM5/ at the bottom of the page you would need to down-load a program that will let your ZOOP talk to your MAC.

  • Tom:

    I would like to use this computer with meter and Celsuis. In previous post, you said we can change depth, temperature metric by ourself. But I cannot find any description about it in manual PDF on website. Do we need to ask change to representative store in local country?

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Tom, if you go to: http://ns.suunto.com/Manuals/Zoop/Userguides/Suunto_Zoop_UserGuide_EN.pdf?_ga=1.90084891.1078619488.1452711446. On page 13 when you are in the pre-dive and set-up option under choice of unit is where you can change the option from metric to imperial. If you need the manual in other than English you can go here and pick the language you would need at the bottom of the page under user guide: http://www.suunto.com/en-US/Support/User-guides/?product=6509.
