About Suunto Cobra Air Integrated Computer Console with Compass

Suunto Cobra combines several technological innovations into one product. It is the only air-integrated dive computer with air, Nitrox, and gauge modes complete with profile memory on the market. In addition to the extensive information provided by the Vyper, the Cobra displays cylinder pressure and estimated remaining air time. The air-consumption of a dive is stored as a used-pressure value in the logbook memory for future reference.

The Cobra offers the new Suunto Reduced Gradient Bubble Model (RGBM), which is a unique algorithm for predicting both dissolved and free gas in the blood and tissues of divers. This development combines the latest knowledge in diving technology with the classic Haldane model. The advantage of the RGBM is its ability to adapt to a wide variety of diving situations. For added safety, the Cobra features the original Suunto innovation: separate three-step personal and altitude adjustments.

The SK-7 has set a new standard for dive compasses. The superior SK-7 features an exceptional tilt potential of +/- 30 degrees, which is 2-3 times larger than in conventional diving compasses, easy-to-read numerals on a phosphorescent compass card and a large side-reading window. The firm-grip bezel with a ratchetat every fifth degree is especially designed to prevent sand and dirt contamination, thus allowing smooth turning in all conditions.

The Suunto Cobra Air Integrated Computer Console with Compass is commonly used for Cold Water, Extreme Depths, Professional, Recreation, Warm Water and more. The Suunto Cobra Air Integrated Computer Console with Compass is most used by customers who consider themselves to be a Advanced, Advanced Diver, Divemaster, Recreational Diver among others. The Suunto Cobra Air Integrated Computer Console with Compass is popular because customers like the following qualities of the Suunto Cobra Air Integrated Computer Console with Compass: Easy To Operate, Easy To Read, Lots Of Functions, Reliable.

Great computer. I'm very happy with this purchase. The ascent monitor is very conservative (33ft / min) vs. recommended limit of 60ft / min. Be a SAFE diver though - so the slower the better. The recommended and mandatory safety stops are great. No fly countdown is great. Deco mode functionality is very good too. Definitely go with the QD option so you can take the unit off your BC for logging dives, travel, security, etc.

I did have some problems with the unit leaking from the QD connection. Good thing I checked the unit before I dived with it. I believe this was Leisure Pro's fault. I had to basically separate the QD from the computer and noticed that the grease they used near the o-ring had dried up and was flaking off. It was making a air-tight complete seal impossible. After cleaning it, everything was fine.

The display is great. I also love that it's air integrated. You can estimate bottom time based on air consumption during your dive. The amount of air you consumed is also available in your log after the dive. I also love the quick-disconnect hose. And setup is pretty intuitive.
There is no seconds timer for your safety stop and you can't see the seconds tick down when you are at depth. My Oceanic Veo200 does show seconds - I wish my Cobra did. I also noticed that my Cobra gave me less bottom time than everyone else who was on the boat. This can be an issue for repetitive dives and it was a little bit of an issue for me.
On another note, I bought my computer used in "Excellent" condition from LeisurePro. The computer arrived in good condition, but it was missing the clear protective cover, the compass and housing was pretty beat up and the battery had to be replaced before I could dive with it. Next time I will pay a few more bucks and buy new.

Comments about Aqualung Suunto Cobra Air Integrated Computer Console with Compass:

First, I like it and it works well. So far, it has been very reliable. Here's some knocks on it. I went back and ordered the compass. Don't even mess around; order it with the compass. It's a little complicated to learn, but has a lot of features. I'm a little farsighted, but I can read it under water. A dive buddy of mine got one about the same time and he likes his, as well. We mostly spearfish the rigs in the Gulf of Mexico.

      Comments about Aqualung Suunto Cobra Air Integrated Computer Console with Compass:

      I could have given this product a 5 star. Unfortunately, I received one of those with the defective hose issue! Just after a couple of dives, I noticed bubbles popping out of the new hose! Did not receive any email from manufacturer even though I had registered the product online. Fortunately the hose bursted before I entered the water on my 4th dive, with this brand new dive computer.
      So if anyone out there has purchased after November 2011 Suunto product with high pressure hose marked
      Manufacturing batch code 1812 printed with text 5000 PSIG PRESSURE TESTED-MADE IN USA
      Make sure you send it back to your Suunto dealer for free replacement. I had to pay for mine :(

          Comments about Aqualung Suunto Cobra Air Integrated Computer Console with Compass:

          The warranty ran out this year. I changed the battery to prep for a vacation and it entered dive mode despite being dry. I put the old battery back in and it was fine, but every time the new battery was put in it would enter dive mode again. I took it to my shop and they tried multiple batteries with the same results. They called Suunto to see about repair or refurb, and they told them to tell me to buy a new computer. The shop guys were as shocked as me considering the price. When we looked online, we found MANY posts of people with the same problem, all occurring the year after warranty was over. It definitely raises concerns about a programmed obsolescence. Regardless, for a $1000, the level of apathy from the manufacturer is unacceptable.

          This is a GREAT dive computer! Has all the needed functions and is reiliable. The back light works great at depth where you need it. The compass mounted on top is a plus! I wish it had a quick disconnect and the pc cable with the software with it but it does not. It cost extra. The one thing that I think I would change would be the sound alert, the beeps that give warnings. They are pretty weak and hard to hear and is the only reason I gave it a 4 star instead of a 5. Everything else works great!

          I went down on a dive to about 15ft and my depth read 0ft...my air was still reading so I kept close to my buddy and didn't go below 40ft. When I got home I Google d depth sensor problems with the cobra and this is an ongoing problem with Suunto Cobra computers with no help from the manufacturer...beware when buying this product! 10% of these computers have malfunctioned within five years and Suunto's customer service has been horrid! Don't say I didn't warn you! Happy hunting, safe diving!

          Questions about this item:

          Shopper  with the compass do they have a southern hemisphere one or doesnt it matter where you are in the world?....cheers
          MIKE K  Mine has always worked fine. Bonaire is as far South as I've been.
          Sheila S  What type of battery does it take or is rechargeable?
          Kasia W  You will need 3.0 Volt CR-2450 Battery.
          Tony N  How can I download dives to my Mac? The cable offered in Accessories states it is for PC only (plus it is ridiculously expensive).
          ROBERT K  Cable works fine with a Mac. Would recommend using the third party software, MacDive. You'll have to go to a separate site to download the drivers, but the MacDive site has all of the instructions to do this. Very intuitive program - easy to use.
