How conservative is the Zoop algorithm? Im tired of my super conservative computer that has me ending a dive with 1000+ psi
Does this computer have a "wrist watch"feature?
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.
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?
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.
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
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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?
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.
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.
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?
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.
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?
What would you choose for a beginner/intermediate diver, the Oceanic Geo 2.0 or the Suunto ZOOP?
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.
