Suunto in Diving Gear Safety Recall

Finish manufacturer of dive computers Suunto has issued a recall of all Suunto Wireless Tank Pressure Transmitters and Suunto Tank PODs.

The company said it has identified a potential safety risk affecting all Suunto Wireless Tank Pressure Transmitters and Suunto Tank PODs which wirelessly transmit tank air pressure to compatible Suunto dive computers.

In two reported incidents, the exterior case of a Suunto Wireless Tank Pressure Transmitter has failed during regular dry land pressure testing. Although extremely rare, this represents a potential risk of injury due to the risk of bursting.

All consumers who have a Suunto Wireless Tank Pressure Transmitter or Tank POD are instructed to bring their products to an authorized Suunto dive dealer or a Suunto Authorized Service Center for inspection and upgrade. The process is free of charge for the consumers. All Transmitters and Tank PODs must not be used before the upgrade has been made.

As a complementary service, Suunto said it will provide a battery replacement free of charge and a one-year warranty from the date of inspection for all upgraded products.
