  • 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

  • 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
