The Suunto D5 Dive Computer is the latest from Suunto, a lightweight but tough wrist style dive computer. Featuring a Full Colour MIP screen for easy to see operation underwater and above, and four dive modes of Air, Nitrox, Freediving and Gauge mode. The new D5 has the latest “Suunto Fused2 RGBM” decompression model which can be adjusted when diving more technical, deep dives. The D5 can connect to a wireless air transmitter which enables air pressure to display on your watch. It also has notification compatibility, so your phone will bluetooth it’s notifications to the watch when above water!
The Suunto D5 is 100m water resistant, with a stainless steel bezel and composite polymer body. It has wireless tank pressure capabilities, meaning it can sync to up to 3 Suunto Tank Pod transmitters to display your air pressure on the watch. Syncing to up to 3 means you can gas switch while underwater and ensure connectivity. The computer has an easy to read digital compass, eliminating the need for a seperate compass. It has vibration alarms, allowing you to turn off the audible alarms if you can’t hear them or don’t want to have audio alarms.
The d5 is rechargable, coming with a usb cable in the box. This added convenience will save you money on battery changes, and makes it easy to make sure your watch battery doesn’t die! As an added benefit, the watch charging cable can double as a transfer cable – meaning you can still sync your dives to DM5 if you prefer! You can perform device updates using this cable and a computer, and charge it anywhere on the go.
The Suunto D5 has bluetooth connectivity to your device. This syncs your dives to your Suunto App automatically. Don’t worry about purchasing a cable to upload them to your computer, the d5 streamlines the process for you. The suunto app is so intuitive, you can add photos, location, videos, and details of your dive to each log – allowing you to have a digital logbook with your diving details input automatically! Additionally, it syncs notifications across from your device. Enable it to recieve notification of phone calls, text messages, emails, and anything else your phone displays.
Customise your D5
The Suunto D5 has multiple customisation features. Further from the choices in bezel colour, it utilises quick-release straps which allows you to change your look quickly. From silicone rubber bands to leather (which we don’t recommend for diving!), you can change your look however you’d like to!
The interface is also changable on the d5. You can customise how you’d like to watch face, or the diving menus, to show only what you want to see. Make the watch completely your own!

When purchased in Australia, all Suunto Dive Computers include a 2 year manufacturers warranty. The Depth sensor has an extended 5 year warranty in Australia only. Another great reason to buy local! We use and recommend Suunto, and are here to help you.
When using the Air integration feature, it is important to note that the Suunto Tank POD is required for connection. It is NOT the Suunto wireless air transmitter that other Suunto D series watches use. This enables for exclusive use and no interference. The “Wireless air transmitter” for the D series unfortunately could result in having interference between ‘connections’ – meaning that if somebody else on the boat used the same connection line, you might get wires crossed! The D5 has removed this interference with the newer transmitter that works via bluetooth connection.
