Suunto Zoop Makes Diving Simple!

The Suunto Zoop Novo is a great first computer that makes diving simple. The Zoop Novo has everything you’ll need in a dive computer whether you’re just starting out or looking to buy a new dive computer. It comes with a big, super-bright backlit display which makes it easy to understand key dive data at a glance. This simple to use dive computer includes full decompression capabilities, five dive modes (Air, Nitrox, Gauge, Free and Off) and straight-forward, menu-based Suunto user interface.

Suunto-Zoop-Novo-Blue-770X513Key Features

  • Five modes: air, nitrox, gauge, free and off
  • Full continuous decompression algorithm – Suunto RGBM
  • Built-in dive planner
  • Detailed graphical logs and dive data with your PC/Mac using
  • Suunto DM5 software (no cable in the package – sold as an accessory)
  • Innovative apnea timer for freediving, and a timer in air/nitrox modes



Suunto Zoop Novo has four main modes: TIME, DIVE, PLANNING and MEMORY. Change modes by pressing [MODE]. Unless DIVE mode is turned off, Suunto Zoop Novo automatically switches to DIVE mode if you are more than 1.2 m (4 ft) under water.

However, you should switch to dive mode before diving to check altitude and personal settings, battery condition and so on. Each time your Suunto Zoop Novo enters dive mode, a series of automatic checks are performed. All graphical display elements are turned ON, and the backlight and the beep are activated. After this, your altitude and personal settings are displayed along with the maximum operating depth (MOD), gas content, and PO2 values. Then the battery level is checked.

Suunto Zoop Novo has the following dive modes:

  • Air: for diving with regular air
  • Nitrox: for diving using oxygen-enriched gas mixtures
  • Gauge: for using the dive computer as a bottom timer
  • Free: for freediving
  • Off: turns dive mode off completely; the dive computer does not automatically switch the dive mode when submerged and dive planning mode is hidden

Suunto-Zoop-Novo-Dive-ComputerBy default, Air mode is activated when you enter dive mode. You can change which mode is activated or turn dive mode off under the general settings
You can use the apnea timer for interval training when freediving. You can adjust the following settings:

  • Vent.: ventilation time
  • Incr: increment time
  • Repeats: number of intervals

By default the depth alarm sounds at 30 m (100 ft). You can adjust the depth according to your personal preference or switch it off.

You can adjust the contrast of the display according to your preference or, for example, to suite changing dive conditions.

Suunto Zoop Novo has a detailed logbook and dive history available in memory mode. The logbook contains a sophisticated dive profile for each recorded dive. The time between each data point saved in the log is based on the configurable sample rate.
