What Kind of Dive Computer Should I Get?
“What kind of dive computer should I get?” is a question we hear from many new scuba divers. Abyss Ocean World in Pemuteran, Bali is an authorized Suunto reseller. Suunto dive computers are used by recreational divers and dive instructors worldwide due to their reliability and ease of use. They can also be serviced in most places around the world. Including at Suunto-authorized service centers in Bali.
What is a Dive Computer?
The purpose of a dive computer is to provide a diver with the information required to dive safely. All dive computers serve the primary function of calculating the diver’s no-decompression limit time (NDL). It does this by monitoring the diver’s depth and time spent at each depth.
Why Should I Use a Dive Computer?
For safety purposes, it is important to understand your NDL to reduce your risk of decompression illness (DCI). Decompression illness occurs when nitrogen bubbles escape the body’s tissues causing mild to severe symptoms.
Using your own dive computer allows you to follow limits calculated specifically from your actual dive profile. Even when diving with a buddy, there will be differences in time and depth which may seem minimal but can result in a significant difference in NDL time.
If you are planning to do a lot of diving during your holiday in Bali, we highly recommend that you buy a dive computer from an authorized Suunto reseller. If you haven’t brought one with you, you can buy a Suunto dive computer at our dive shop in Pemuteran, Bali.
Why Should I Buy a Suunto?

Suunto dive computers are more conservative than some other brands, but many users see this as a pro rather than a con. As professionals, diving multiple dives a day in Bali, we prefer to dive conservatively to reduce our risk of decompression illness.
