A settlement of a class action lawsuit in the US involving certain Sunnto dive computers has been settled. Canada is outside of the jurisdiction of this lawsuit, but Canadians are advised to follow up with Suunto if you own one of the computers listed below.
Suunto Dive Computer models manufactured from January 1, 2006 through August 10, 2018 and purchased new in the United States, are 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.
This class action lawsuit claimed that the depth pressure sensors in certain dive computers manufactured and sold by Suunto and distributed and sold by Aqua Lung are defective. Because of this defect there are inaccuracies in depth and temperature readings. Suunto and Aqua Lung have denied two things:: that they engaged in any wrongdoing, and that there is any defect with respect to the depth pressure sensors in the Suunto Dive Computers. However Sunnto and Aqua Lung agreed to resolve these matters before they were decided by the Court, and to avoid the cost and of further litigation, and/or a trial.
If your Dive Computer has a faulty depth pressure sensor, this settlement provides for a free inspection, repair or replacement of your Dive Computer. Unfortunately, individuals who purchased a used dive computer, are not part of this settlement.
