Whats in the box:Wrist Computer, Transmitter
Suunto, once again, shows its leadership position with the introduction of the Suunto VYTEC. This is the newest entry into the hoseless computer market and is the most feature-rich dive computer currently available. Building on the reliable and easy-to-use Vyper and Cobra, the Vytec offers additional features, such as multi-gas switching and wireless air integration.
The Suunto Vytec enables the technically-oriented diver to switch gases during the dive. When in Nitrox mode, the user can preset upto three different gas mixes containing from 21% to 99% oxygen. Preferred gas mixes can be stored as defaults and can be set ON or OFF for each dive, or modified as needed.
The Suunto Vytec provides easy and reliable gas switching between enabled gases during the dive. Gas switching is allowed only for gases that lie within chosen maximum PO2 limits. CNS and OTU values are displayed using an Oxygen Limit Fraction (OLF) bar graph.
The Vytec is available as a complete package, including the wireless transmitter that is attached to the regulator high-pressure port. It can also be purchased as a standalone computer, with the option to add the transmitter later. The wireless operation can easily be enabled or disabled in the Vytec's settings. With the wireless transmission enabled, the Vytec displays tank pressure and calculates remaining air time based on current gas consumption. The wireless transmission can be used in Air, Nitrox, and Gauge modes. The pressure transmitter is 4500 PSI compatible, and has user replaceable batteries. In the Gauge mode, the Vytec works as a bottom timer also providing accurate profile sampling and book marking functions. The dive timer can be reset and displays the dive time in minutes and seconds, which is a feature extremely useful for timing accurate bottom times and decompression stops.
The Vytec, like all Suunto computers, uses the Suunto Reduced Gradient Bubble Model (RGBM) algorithm for decompression calculations.This computer also features an additional Suunto innovation - a user-adjustable RGBM function to dampen the repetitive dive impact during multiple dives over multiple days. During setup, the user selects either the RGBM 100 routine or the more aggressive RGBM 50 routine. This computer is the same physical size as the Vyper and will clearly set the bar for features and performance in dive computers.
