A NEW VERSATILE COMPUTER FROM SUUNTO
The Suunto Gekko is an ideal choice for sports divers who do not require a PC interface or simulation features. It can be used with both air and Nitrox and is designed to give the specifics of any diving situation, including decompression, at a glance. Both ascent rate and available no-decompression time are displayed graphically with clear, color-coded indicators. Visual and audible alarms are given when necessary. Maximum depth and dive time alarms can be enabled. The Gekko uses the Suunto RGBM decompression model and has a user-replaceable battery and user-adjustable metric/imperial units.

EASY TO OPERATE AND EXCELLENT VALUE
Easy to use buttons and a straightforward menu structure make Gekko simple to operate. The extensive logbook memory stores up to 50 hours of dive profiles and logbook data, including dive start time and date, dive time, maximum depth attained, and temperature at maximum depth. In addition, the dive history keeps track of up to 999 dives and 999 dive hours, as well as the maximum depth ever reached.

PHOSPHORESCENT LCD DISPLAY
The Gekko is equipped with a super-bright phosphorescent display, which can be charged with a dive torch, providing long lasting illumination of the display in dark conditions.

Pressure Gauge

The pressure gauge is also color coded for ease of reading and gives pressure readings from 0 to 5000 psi; instrument has luminous dial for ease of reading inlow light conditions

Comments about Aqualung Suunto "Gekko" Air/Nitrox 2 Gauge Computer Console:

I narrowed my search down to the Mares Nemo Wide and the Gekko. I think that I made the right decision. This computer is less expensive and has all the functions of the Nemo Wide that your typical diver would require. I think that I saw a Nemo Wide on a diver last week in the D.R. and it looked huge on her wrist!
I just wish that this had a compass built in.

Comments about Aqualung Suunto "Gekko" Air/Nitrox 2 Gauge Computer Console:

After one year of recreational diving this computer has been verry impressive. I made 78 dives on it in 2009 and the battery is still reading 4 bars (I carry a replacement battey).

Other computers give you more bottom time but I do not mind the safety margin built in to this computer.

Learn how to use it before you get it wet and it will impress you as well.

Comments about Aqualung Suunto "Gekko" Air/Nitrox 2 Gauge Computer Console:

Just completed a two week/three dives a day trip and this computer worked great. Large display was easy to read underwater. I used it with nitrox. I did not use the logbook function which would require carrying the entire regulator to my room to log my dives each evening. Otherwise, great little computer and easy to use.

Comments about Aqualung Suunto "Gekko" Air/Nitrox 2 Gauge Computer Console:

This computer is used on all dives as a back up to my cobra. I like Suunto products as they are very dependable and easy to use. These computers are conservative but this is a plus for me as I am over 65 years old. Most of my dives are drift dives from 60 to 95 feet so I need a dependable computer for half saftey stops as well as normal saftey stops. The ascent graph is easy to read and works well.

Comments about Aqualung Suunto "Gekko" Air/Nitrox 2 Gauge Computer Console:

I was hesitant to use this computer on recent dives in Key West and Grand Cayman having NEVER used it, or ANY computer before. Super easy and user friendly. Slight learning curve but very easy and feature filled. I downloaded the pdf users manual off of Suunto's site and had NO PROBLEMS. I suggest you read the manual beforehand. (Our dive leader in KW had a Gekko also and loved hers, too!) What a great price for a Suunto with AUDIBLE ALARMS ( a MUST, in my opinion!!) Just BUY IT!!!

This computer is perfect for my 1 or 2 dive trips a year. Beeps to alert you if you need to attend to something. It requests that you make a 3 minute safety stop and counts it down for you.

The only negative is that the "glowing" face barely glows at all.

Comments about Aqualung Suunto "Gekko" Air/Nitrox 2 Gauge Computer Console:

Trying to use the buttons without a pen or pencil to push on them with is a pain. The protective cover is in the way and you can only get the edge of a finger on the button which means you have to press very hard. They should move the buttons to the side. I have used it for 12 dives now and am not happy with it at all. I will be trading it in for a different computer the next time I go to my dive shop. I am 5' 6" tall and have small hands and it is just a bad design.

Comments about Aqualung Suunto "Gekko" Air/Nitrox 2 Gauge Computer Console:

its a good computer that does its job...... they say that it doesnt have a PC interface but that is wrong....... i got a cord from a viper and plugged it strait in the back(it has a plug in spot)

most of what im telling you is from experience borrowing the gekko from a friend..... only decided on buying one for myself recently..

it is a neat comp with lots of features
altitude diving adjustment(0 to 10000 ft)
imperial or metric
personal diving setings(adjust how lenient the bottom time is)
RBT
ABT
Depth
ectectect.... you have the idea
if you can afford this comp and the add on compass.... THEN GET IT

the only thing that sucked is that i got a coupon for 10% off RIGHT after i bought it

awesome computer very easy to use. really like the ascent rate function lets you know how fast your ascending and if you go to fast it will yell at you. have 15 dives under its wings and havent had a problem yet. the only problem i can for see is the plastic protective cover getting scratched up the unit comes with 2 of them but its all up to how to treat your equipment

Comments about Aqualung Suunto "Gekko" Air/Nitrox 2 Gauge Computer Console:

This computer has all the functions that I need for recreational diving. Many people told me it was too simple and that it couldnt be connected to a computer, turns out it does the same thing as other more expensive ones and I found a hack to download the profiles with the suunto cable from the more expensive models. Very easy to use. I am very pleased with the choice.

Comments about Aqualung Suunto "Gekko" Air/Nitrox 2 Gauge Computer Console:

It shipped without an English manual, but I download that on Suunto’s website. I set the date and time, and it was ready to use the weekend of my certification open water dives. The long strap allowed me to put the watch on with cold water gloves, and it fit around a 7mm wetsuit and gloves on my wrist. It was easy to read underwater without a backlight display, but I do plan on using it when I do night water dives. I navigated through the menus easily at the end my four dives at Gilboa Quarry in Ohio.

Great all around computer, use it in warm water and once in awhile cold water. Easy to use and the fuctions and memory are great. It's so simple and basic and does everything you need it to do except for PC down loads, but I'm old school and log everything in a log book anyway. Sunnto did a great job and offered it at a great price, plus LP's price [...] amazing. Liked it so well bought two one for me and my wife. Only dislike is the mile long strap that comes with the computer.

Comments about Aqualung Suunto "Gekko" Air/Nitrox 2 Gauge Computer Console:

I've had this computer for about a year now, and It has worked wonderfully. Once you get used to the navigation, you can take advantage of a lot of its features.

It's probably a bit big to carry around during a scuba diving weekend, and the strap is really long (maybe one day I'll have the need for such a long strap). However, it's a great purchase, and certainly worth the price.

Get a couple of extra protectors.

Comments about Aqualung Suunto "Gekko" Air/Nitrox 2 Gauge Computer Console:

This is a great computer for a diver who is/is not Nitrox certified. It's very reliable and easy to read. If you don't need to download your dives, or use a Mac where almost no dive software is compatible. Then this one is for you. It i perfect for the recreational diver who does not do gas switching during deco dives. My wife uses this as well and loves it. Great for the diver all the way up through Divemaster. When you finally get into Tech diving, you will need a second bottom timer and depth gauge, at this time keep this one and then buy a multi gas unit. You can't go wrong with the Gecko!

Comments about Aqualung Suunto "Gekko" Air/Nitrox 2 Gauge Computer Console:

I think this computer is an excellent value. It's simple to operate and works well in both cold and warm water. The readout will continue to glow for several hours after exposure to light. I don't do much Nitrox diving, but I'm glad it has ability to accommodate it. The only thing I would mention is that there's no interface for tracking your air supply. If you want a computer that does that, you'll have to spend a lot more money. I personally don't mind using the traditional air gage. Overall, I'm very pleased with the Gekko.

Comments about Aqualung Suunto "Gekko" Air/Nitrox 2 Gauge Computer Console:

This has been a great first computer for me. It is less expensive because it lacks a few features that I can live without like a backlight and PC download. It can handle nitrox though and I like the analogue tank pressure gauge so even if the battery dies (which it never has) I'll know how much air I've got left. The controls are intuitive and user friendly.
