Pressure gauge problem with Suunto Cobra 2

Hi,
I have a problem with my Suunto Cobra 2.
It has an important error in pressure gauge. I could check it has about 20bar of error, when it must gauge 210 bar, more or less, I see 190 in the display, and also have a strange.
Is it possible to adjust the pressure gauge?

Thanks a lot
Best regards
Salva

Salva,

The error in pressure is actually a "feature" of Suunto computers. Suunto is probably one of the most conservative brands out there, and many experienced divers tend to stay away from them for that very reason.

The manual actually calls out this "feature" on page 27.

The remaining air time calculation includes a 35 bar/500 psi safety reserve. This means
that when the instrument shows the air time to be zero, there is still about 35 bar/500 psi
of pressure left in your cylinder, depending on your air consumption rate.

Suunto Cobra Computer Console, I replaced the battery and now it will only come up in depth mode and shows it's at 455 feet! I've tried multple new batteries and cleaned the contacts on the battery posts as well as the contacts on the side of the unit and placed it in warm water. There is no residue on the contacts. Any thoughts? The internet has quite a few posts about this being a known problem with Suunto, but how to fix? Suunto was contacted and they referred me to Aqualung...go figure, pass the buck.

Suunto Cobra Computer Console, battery replacement


Hey scuba2man, I have the same problem. Did you ever work out what was going on? My console didn't register any depth for first couple of dives (I had to turn it on every 5 mins to check air). Next couple of dives it told me I was between 98 and 103 metres deep (whatever that is in feet). I was at a maximum depth of 22m!!
I will let you know if I find solution. If not then I'll just get a new one!!!

I'm trying to reset the altimeter and sea pressure but the watch. I've followed the instructions but the watch more often that not reverts back to default settings or does not respond to the calibrations...

If you continue to have problems with your watch, and the instructions in the user manual don't resolve your problem, you may have to return the watch to Suunto.
Your watch must be registered with them, you'll need the serial number of the watch, which is located on the back case. You'll have to get an RMA from Suunto in order to send it back to them.
Here's their warranty info: http://www.suunto.com/en-us/Support/Warranty-information/

I am trying to find a replacement wrist band for a suunto vyper. Any ideas?


HI,

Any good outdoor store who stocks Suunto will either stock it or be able to order it for you.. In a lot of cases Suunto also trains staff in fitting straps and batteries so you can be sure it was put on right. Prices will depend on type and model but generally they're not too expensive..

Depth and time not correct


Do you live somewhere significantly above sea level?

If not, check your personal altitude setting. It's explained on pages 20 and 23 of the manual.

How and why scuba gauges give a diver critical information while scuba diving?


Scuba gauges give a diver three very important pieces of information: 1. Time 2. Depth 3. Air Consumption This information enables a diver to stay within safe time and depth limits and avoid running out of air. There are many different devices on the market to help with this, from simple gauges to complex digital consoles. Time If a diver is not using a dive computer to monitor their nitrogen, they dive according to approved dive tables. To use dive tables properly, a diver needs to track their downtime. This can be done with a good dive watch. Two things make a good dive watch: water resistance and a rotating bezel. 1. Water Resistance. Good dive watches are rated to a depth in meters or feet (e.g. 200 feet) or a pressure rating in atmospheres (e.g. 4atm). Even though most divers probably won’t dive below 130 feet (the recreational dive limit), a good dive watch should be rated to 200 feet. Note: There is a difference between “water resistance” and “waterproof”. A “waterproof” watch is what you would wear in the shower, but would probably start leaking at 15-20 feet. 2. Rotating Bezel. A bezel is an adjustable ring on the face of the dive watch with a pointer indicator. At the beginning of a dive, the pointer on the bezel is aligned with the minute hand where it stays though out the dive. At the end of the dive, you compare the difference between the bezel and the minute hand to find out the length of the dive. The bezel should only move “counterclockwise”. It is possible to accidently move the bezel during a dive. Because of this, watchmakers make sure any accidental movement will turn the time in a conservative direction, making the dive longer rather than shorter. Depth Another important part of scuba gauges is a depth gauge. A depth gauge enables a diver to keep track of their depth even if they cannot see the water’s surface. Gauges can be either an analog (needle-and-dial) device or a digital device. Both work in the same way. They measure the surrounding water pressure and convert this into an accurate reading of your depth. Another feature of a good depth gauge is a maximum depth indicator. This tells a diver their maximum during a dive and must be reset after each dive. Air Consumption Another equally important part of scuba gauges is a submersible pressure gauge (SPG). This is connected to the first stage with a high-pressure hose and measures the pressure of the air in the tank. The SPG is much like the gas gauge on a car. At the beginning of a dive, a diver starts with a full tank. This should be about 3000 psi or 200 bars. As the diver breathes during the dive, the gauge will move slowly downwards. This allows the diver to have enough air left in the tank to: 1. Make a slow, safe ascent 2. Make any necessary decompression stops 3. Inflate their BCD once at the surface 4. Breath from the regulator if the surface conditions are rough A submersible pressure gauge also allows a diver to stop diving with air still in the tank. This keeps contaminants from entering the tank due to no air pressure. Wrist Depth Gauge Scuba gauges come in two basic styles. Stand alone gauges or gauge consoles. Stand alone gauges such as a wrist mounted depth gauge or a submersible pressure gauge attached to the first stage of a regulator are great backups when using digital gauges. Gauge consoles allow divers to have all their gauges in one place. Although less easy to read, analog gauges sometimes give slightly more accurate readings than digital gauges, particularly at shallow depth. Submersible Pressure Gauge Choosing Scuba Gauges When choosing scuba gauges, remember to look for: 1. Easy-to-read numbers 2. Luminescent dial or back lighting options 3. Rotating/swivel mounting 4. Easy disassembly for cleaning or replacing parts 5. Good warranty
