READ THIS BEFORE YOU BUY SUUNTOREAD THIS BEFORE YOU BUY SUUNTO:
I got my D6i on May 31 and was very excited at first: I did 5 dives during 3 weeks and I was initially amazed by the compass, USB connectivity etc, but then it failed: MODE button was dead. Just not working.
Despite being new the seller (Dexclusive) DIDN'T offer me a replacement unit and I they told me \to send it back, then they sent it to Suunto for repair. And Still here I am, waiting for my "new" big bucks investment to be glued and repaired.
Such an expensive dive compuer should NOT fail this way, so miserably, after just 3 weeks of normal usage, no it can not be this bad. No. What about a failure at 120 ft with mixed air? It could be catastrophic. YOU COULD DIE OR GET SEVERE INJURIES.
Just 3 weeks of usage, 5 dives and my "brand new D6i" failed: UNACCEPTABLE quality. And no, the watch was never dropped, no bumps, no hits at all. It just stopped working. And Suunto doesn't care if it is brand new: No replacement whatsoever.
At first the seller tried to blame me, then after many explanations they acknowledged the watch was faulty, but no: no replacement: "Send it back for repair" they insisted.
I will never buy anything Suunto again. DON'T BUY SUUNTO UNLESS YOU LIVE IN FINLAND OR NEAR (very near) A REPAIR CENTRE. BEWARE, YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED. PS: My "new" D6i is still at Suunto's repair centre and I am very frustrated.
