I read a lot of reviews of diving computers and at first I was looking at the Suunto D6i. Eventually I ran into the Suunto D9Tx which supports trimix diving. I found the price for the D9Tx a little bit to high for my taste, however the trimix support really got me thinking of the near future requirements I could possibly have.
I decided to search for trimix support and eventually ran into the Suunto Helo2. Most of the reviews are really positive, of course there are always people who can only criticize. It is one of the first consumer dive computers which supports technical diving with multiple gas mixes including Helium. It has a depth range of up to 120 meters. One of the nice things is that the battery can be easily replaced on site, which is the reason I always bring a spare battery replacement kit when diving.
Today I received my order from Scubaworld which contained the Helo2 among other things. The following box contained both the dive computer and the remote:
- The Suunto Helo2 dive computer (Don't worry when the display is blank, it will start to work when a button is pressed ...).
- The remote transmitter to place on the first stage.
- A usb cable to retrieve the logged dives from the dive computer.
- The manual.
- An extra display cover (One is already placed on the dive computer).
- A small pamflet for the DM4 program.
