The NEW Suunto EON Steel Black is on its way and now available for pre-order
The Suunto EON Steel Black comes with Suunto Fused™ RGBM 2 and Buhlmann 16 GF algorithms. This gives technical divers the possibility to choose their dive algorithm: Suunto Fused™ RGBM 2 or Suunto version of Bühlmann ZHL-16C with Gradient Factors, allowing them to match dive profiles with other dive team members’ devices
The new Suunto Fused™ RGBM 2 (Software update already available for “existing” Eon Steel devices) dive algorithm provides better possibility to deep air diving and repetitive diving
Gives divers an option to choose from continuous or stepped ascent mode in both algorithms – Suunto is the only dive computer manufacturer who gives continuous ascent mode for Bühlmann.
Wireless connectivity with Suunto App and Suunto Tank Pods. Suunto App is the digital logbook for divers. Dives can easily be transferred via Bluetooth to your mobile where the user enrich the dive data by adding comments, pictures and dive location.
The Suunto EON Steel Black now comes in a hard case. This allows the user to store their unit safely when not using. The outer sleeve has also been updated, with the EON Steel Black standing out against the white background, catching the consumers eye. On the sleeve side, it's features are clearly marked.

We are having a little clearance on certain Fourth Element Thermoclines to make way for new stock.
Once the items have gone they have gone so grab yourself a bargain whilst you can
Why purchase a Fourth Element Thermocline
Thermocline is lightweight, machine washable and equivalent to a 2mm neoprene wetsuit, without the wetsuit, making in perfect for those allergic to neoprene but even if not allergic these are great items to have..
Great for extra warmth under a wetsuit to save you having multiple wetsuits, have one and gain the additional warmth by using a thermocline.
Suitable for all water sports be that diving, swimming, SUP, sailing to name but a few.
Just ask Tracey who uses the Thermocline vest under her 3mm Fourth Element Wetsuit for summer UK shore diving and has worn in Egypt in February - really does do what it says on the tin and easy to pack.
Yes we are closed, but we are available for advise and click and collect - we have slots available this coming Saturday but we do ask you to follow all government guidelines.
We are pleased to announce that Suunto have launched a long awaited software update to the EON Steel!
There are two software updates available: A FREE upgrade to the RGBM Fused 2 algorithm, which is already featured on the EON Core and D5,
This can be downloaded either via the Suunto link cable or via DM5. The new fused 2 algorithm offers less conservatism on deeper and repetitive dives. It also allows you to run a stepped decompression profile instead of a continuous one.
The full update notification can be found on the Suunto website, click the button below
The other option is much more exciting, which is the option to add the Buhlmann ZHL16 algorithm to the EON Steel. Mainly a feature for technical divers, this allows an EON steel user to match the algorithm of the computer to their team mates if those divers are using other units like Shearwaters (and yes we know there are a number of recreational users who use this computer!)
The Buhlmann update also offers the following:
To get the Buhlmann upgrade all units need to be sent back to Suunto which you can do directly or we are happy to do on your behalf.
There is a cost though.... If your unit is less than 2 years old the upgrade is free. For older units the cost is £80.
