About Suunto Vyper Air Wrist Computer (Complete System)

The Vyper Air dive computer, by Suunto, is the next generation of wireless air integration and computer technology. It allows you tomonitor your tank pressure and air consumption from your wrist or your console; you choose the location. Its 3-D compass will quickly become your new best friend; its ability to give a true reading, even at a 45-degree angle, will make keeping your heading easier than ever If you use enriched air, you can program the Vyper Air 1% increments for nitrox mixtures (21-100% oxygen).

Many dive computers take readings every few seconds; to keep you as safe as possible, the Vyper Air uses the Suunto Deep Stop RGBM algorithm that offers continuous decompression reading and offers an optimal ascent time. The goal of Suunto is to keep you safe; with that in mind, they included the Deep Stop option as part of the Vyper Air. The Deep Stop option includes additional stops between the diver's maximum depth and ceiling to allow divers to gas off safely while making an ascent.

    This is a great computer in that it is, for the most part VERY reliable but as with anything that incorporates a battery, it can fail. I have added a backup pressure gauge to my first stage for this reason. Thus for the sake of additional safety as well as NOT loosing the dive, I failed to eliminate a hose with the purchase of the Viper Air, but I did improve availble dive data with the addition of the Viper Air and I created good equipment redundancey.

    I like the RGBM algorithm because it is more conservative. My dive buddies typically have shorter surface times because their DC does not incorporate this important Reduced Gas Bubble Model.

    As referenced above, the tank pressure display function has failed on me from time to time but I believe the unit did all it could to remain electronically paired to my transmitter and failed when I got seperated from my tank during ground transport or while switching tanks without disarming the Air Dive Mode. Sometimes it re-pairs by itself and other times I have to use the published procedure to clear and re-pair the unit manually. The procedure works every single time but it's an abnormal operation as such, it will take you a time or two before you have the procedure memorized and don't have to refer to the operating manual.

    Bottom line -- this unit has it's own way of electronically seeing things and the owner has to read the manual several times and get hands-on use to get comfortable with it. I think that's the same with just about any DC. As with all equipment I dive with that incorporates a battery, I use it for it's utility but NEVER rely on it as my sole source to safely continue the dive. Hope you find my comments helpful. Chris

    Good computer, improvement on the Vyper 2. However, the compass calibration was frustrating as it kept failing. You also have to calibrate tilt on this unit (unlike the Vyper 2) and it took several tries as well.[...]

    Comments about Suunto Vyper Air Wrist Computer (Complete System):

    I had to replace the batteries in the computer with in a couple weeks of purchasing it, then the transmitter a couple weeks after that. A couple months after the first purchase, the transmitter died completely. I sent it back and my local dive shop had to push Suunto really hard to get them to replace my transmitter in a timely manner. It's now been 4-5 months since I put the new transmitter on and it works intermittenly, luckily I have a backup (which I actually use as a primary) SPG.

      Comments about Suunto Vyper Air Wrist Computer (Complete System):

      Haven't dove this computer yet, but can't wait to try it out! Has everything I would ever want in a dive computer. The remote pressure transmitter is way too cool! No more big bulky console unit hanging around! Yeah!

      Fortunately I was able to get in on the pre 2013 sale that included a free pressure transmitter. The transmitter is pretty salty and I probably wouldn't have got it right away though.

      The interface and menus are more intuitive than my Gekko, but still not as intuitive as it could be.

      Comments about Suunto Vyper Air Wrist Computer (Complete System):

      When functioning properly a great tool to use, unfortunately i bought 6 complete units for me and my family and all have failed, and have either been replaced or repaired by the company purchased from. I now carry a spare hose and gauge, in case one of our units let us down again. The compass does not stay on long enough, which we use on big drift dives, my preference next time would be the D9 or better.

      Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

      Questions about this item:

      Shopper  The older Suunto Favor computer had a hose mount holder so that the computer could be mounted on the hose supplying your integrated standard gauges (for those of us who prefer that sort of redundancy in critical information). Does this mount work with this Vyper computer or is there a similar mounting device available for the Vyper? Thanks.
      NED S  I don't know. This Vyper is the same dimensions as the older Vyper models. If you have a reg console that works with older Vyper models then this model should work as a replacement. Beyond that, I don't think I can help you.
      Shopper  how many hours/dives does this computer log? thanks
      JOSEPH S  The computer can hold up to 999 dives, and 999 hours of diving information. If you collect more data points per hour, the hours will decrease accordingly.
      dennis b  what is the differencde between the complete system and the other similar model for 574.99?
      STEPHEN E  The cheaper version doesn't include the wireless HP transmitter. The computer will work fine but won't have the integrated air pressure readings. You can get a cheap analog air gauge and then you're set. Or get the wireless if you want to know how much air you have left right there on your wrist.
