Diving session in Nemo 33 with D5 can be found at 6:22

The long awaited D5 from Suunto is finally here, and we were fortunate enough to travel on behalf of Mike’s Dive Store to cover the UK press launch at Nemo 33 in Brussels, Belgium.
The overnight road trip allowed us to squeeze 2 dives in the pool at Nemo 33, giving us plenty of time to get to grips with this new unit.

The latest dive computer from the Finnish team at Suunto packs the same menu functions that can be found on the EON Core and EON Steel, but in a unit slightly bigger than their mainstream units such as the D4 & D6.
The main draw about the D5 is that this unit is a wearable watch, combined with a rechargeable lithium-ion battery, making this a cross between an EON Core and a D6 in our own opinion, but with a whole host of cool new features!

The Suunto D5 comes in 4 main options:
– Black Body/Black Strap
– Black Body/Lime Strap
– White Body/White Strap
– White Body/Black Strap
The white options have the silver bezel on the face.

Weighing in at 90g, and with a depth rating of 100m the D5 will appeal to the recreational diver.
It will take tank pressure readings from 3 pods, and allows the user to customize the unit and perform software updates themselves, and has 18 language options.

The D5 differs from other models in the Suunto range because it has the option for interchangeable coloured straps (sold separately).
User-friendly and quick to remove, the straps can easily be changed for a number of options in the range, including longer straps for dry-suits, NATO style material dive straps, and even leather straps to allow you to wear the D5 as a fully functioning watch when not in the water to give it a different look and feel. We really really loved this feature!

Another big positive is the new algorithm. Suunto has released the FUSED 2 RGBM Decompression Model in the D5, in a bid to improve the dive experience of the user.
This is a huge step forward, and will definitely make this a popular dive computer/watch.

The Suunto D5 is available now for pre-order from and will be available for general sale from March 11th 2019, which is the expected launch date.

Keep your eyes peeled for our full review video on the Suunto D5 which will be landing soon from our recent trip to the Philippines!!
