Suunto Zoop
« on: 30 Sep 10, 11:02 »
Hi,

Am considering the Zoop and would like to find out from existing users whether does it:

1)  log the time and date of dive?
2)  duration of dive?
3)  no. of dives that it can log?

Many thanks for your help.

1. Yes, it logs time and date of dive.
2. Yes, many aspects of dive are logged, including Air & water temperature (beginning of dive only), depth every 30 sec interval, deepest depth, alarms etc.
3. This I also donno... but I have over 40 logged dives still in zoop's memory..
 :)

I also just bought the Zoop. Pretty nice little beast. The strap however is a way to long cos it can also cater for dry suite. I was advised and get ready to chop off the tail to suite my wrist. Correct hor ? :'(

Puck style dive coms such at the Zoop usually have a long strap which you don't have to lop off the end. There's a technique to fold up the strap so as not to have a long dangly end.

Something like this?


Canon 5D MK III
Canon 100mm L Macro, Canon 16-35mm L, Canon 8-15mm FE, Nexus Housing
Sony A7R2, A6300 Sony 90mm Macro, Nauticam Housing
Inon Z-240 Strobes, Weefine Video lights, FIT Focus lights

Thank you so much for the confirmation and illustration.  :)  Happy Sunday.

Am considering getting a dive computer for my future dives. Now looking at the Suunto Zoop or the D4. Price difference of at least $300 and of course the D4 can do more then the Zoop. However the Zoop should be sufficient for recreational divers right?
I do agree that the Mola-Molas are a MYTH!

I think Zoop is enuf, I have one.  The only possible rec diving related difference is the deep stop function (for deep dives).. but it should not make too much of a difference if u follow good diving practice or good DMs.. accent slowly.  Anyway, to incorporate deepstop into your diving, you do not really need a dive comp's help.  Of coz, if u have another $300 to spare.. get the D4 if thats what u like.  Siaokao's 2 cents..  :)

if u get a D4 then it's 2 in 1 being a watch as well
that's real good i think in terms of less hassle and weight
great too if u want to check your surface interval or scroll thru the last dive profile while having lunch somewhere or on a plane going home
i think there will be slight inconvenience when u send it for servicing or battery change
