Vintage Scuba Equipment, a Suunto EON
Suunto EON air integrated computer
This Suunto EON is an air integrated computer and the console is designed to give both cylinder pressure and decompression-related information. They can track multi-level air dives but are not Nitrox
-capable. I purchased my copy around 1995 and it's no wonder that this computer model is no longer in production. Unfortunately I managed to drown my computer when changing a battery too many.
With the older style computers by Suunto one big draw back I always found that for changing the batteries the computer had to be sent away to an authorized dealer, so they could do this for you, which in Thailand
could be quite an essential amount of time. I changed my own battery frequently but one time the seal wasn't 100% in place and that was the end of my model.
The infamous battery for the EON
My EON made me very happy, one of the main things it did was due it's air integration, it taught me how to manage my air consumption better! I will never forget that!
