Its a great dive computer. Its very easy to read and the menus are laid out for simple operation. It can be connected to your Mac despite what the description says. All you need is a SmartInterface cable and MacDive. I have have all my dives downloaded.

Im very happy with my Gekko!

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:

    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.

    I live on the Riviera Maya (Yucatan Caribe). Most in our regular diving party (7 of 12 people)owns the Gekko. It is reliable, relatively simple, durable, and basic. It is without a doubt the best value for the buck!

      Questions about this item:

      Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
      Nancy S  Trusted brand, easy to change battery
      Shopper  Does this computer calculate no decompression time for multiple dives in a row?
      LeisurePro S  Yes, has repetitive dive planning and shows adjusted no-dec times.
      Shopper  Re: Suunto "Gekko" Air/Nitrox 2 Gauge Computer Console. Does this have a computer interface? Some of the reviews say it does but the description says it doesn't. Does this have a compass? I checked this in my preferences, but it doesn't show or say that. Thank you.
      LeisurePro S  The Gekko is not set up for PC interface. There is a USB port on the computer and a cable that is sold for the Gekko, but it is there mostly for people (dive shops and rental stores) who need to restore the computer to its factory settings. Some people have been able to figure out how to download the dives onto their computer, but it's not set up for it and requires some computer saavy. This console does not come with a compass, but here is the attachment compass for the Gekko console.
