As in, don't try fixing it yourself?Do not touch a dive computer, unless you know your tables...
Correct. If you screw it up and it ceases to function and you do not know your tables you will be in dire straits!As in, don't try fixing it yourself?
A little more info from you would improve the usefulness of the answers you get. Watch or computer, make, model, age, and in a perfect world what would you like to do with it, sell or use?
Sorry Janne, you may have a friend who dives with a Rolex but this is all rather academic and/or nonsense;Correct. If you screw it up and it ceases to function and you do not know your tables you will be in dire straits!
My old assistant is also a dive master with several organizations, a qualified rescue diver and recovery diver ( of dead people) and she told me once that today very few people know the tables when it hits the fan, panic and die.
People rely too much on the computers.
She dives with air, helox and rebreathers. Wears a Rolex plus a computer. She has the watch WR tested every year, serviced every three years, her computer she WR tests every 6 months.
I do not dive myself. Prefer to see the fishes at the end of my line and then on my plate!
Don't take my word for it, contact a Suunto service centre and give them the serial number - you may be lucky and it may be a later model that could be salvaged and batteries and seals described as being for a "Suunto Companion" are available from the Bay of E;Thanks Nomad, we cant win them all.
