Average Customer Review: based on 2 reviews.

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).

  • 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

    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

    The Zoop uses glow in the dark technology.

  • GP:

    Does this computer have a "wrist watch"feature?

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at

    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

    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.

  • 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

    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

  • 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

    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

    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

    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

    yes. It is a wrist computer. For more details on shipping methods please contact our instructors at 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

    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.

  • Gil:

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

    Bill  (Certified Scuba Instructor at

    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

    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

    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

    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

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

  • Steve:

    Does the Zoop have a compass?

    Arthur  (Certified Scuba Instructor at

    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

    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

    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

    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

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