    This is by far the best computer I have ever used. I started off trying out various manufactures computers and stumbled upon this little gem one day. Well I fell in love with it instantly and bit the bullet and bought it a few years back. The original purpose of the computer was for recreational use and i figured when i went tech it would be time for a new one. Well although it is an over price bottom timer it is by far the easiest computer to use, well at least for me. The only drawback is that I feel bad for not getting in the water more with it. Oh and still on the original battery after 4 years. The warning just came on the other day. So time for a battery change.

    I have used Suunto for years, ranging from Solution Alpha Air, and Vyper Nitrox..these have been reliable performers, with no complaints.
    But a Vytec DS with Transmitter that I purchased last year from Leisurepro, displayed that I was at 15ft, when I was close to 50ft on a Plane wreck at Lake Rawlings Va. I tried resetting all the settings to the original RGBM, and tried the same dive the following week..this time It told me I was on the surface while I was still on the plane...fortunately, I was also using my Suunto Vyper as a reference..I hope yours are calibrated..Leisure pro was Kind enough to replace mine, due to the errors. I sold it right away, as I was put off by the risk of Oxygen toxicity, or CNS hit, from diving beyond the maximum PPO.
    Test yours before taking a deep plunge my friends.

      This is a great wrist mounted computer. I can't live without air integration! Once you use air integration its hard to not. This computer has an easy readout, and shows lots of information in an easy to read interface.

      Comments about Aqualung Suunto "Vytec DS" Hoseless Wrist Air/Nitrox Computer with Transmitter:

      I checked out the system in the pool. When I hit salt water the transmitter died. You can have battery failure with this so I recommend you carry a spare for both the transmitter and the computer. They are easy to change and it can save a dive trip.

      My wife has used this system for 3 years with no problems. Mine was an exception, but we learned a "be prepared" lesson.

        Comments about Aqualung Suunto "Vytec DS" Hoseless Wrist Air/Nitrox Computer with Transmitter:

        I have a Suunto Vytec that I bought a few years ago with the transmitter which I loved until it died!! The depth gauge just went bizerk during a dive (reading 20' deeper than I was) and never went back to normal when I got out of the water. Apparently that is a known "issue" however there is nothing that Suunto would do for me, there is no fix, so now my expensive dive computer is basically a paper weight or hockey puck but cannot be used as a dive computer or even a dive gauge. I find it amazing that the manufacturer doesn't stand by there products at all given that the issue was theirs and not user generated or even wear/tear.
