The following tips and settings options will help you understand which features of your Suunto D5 drain battery and how to optimize for longer battery life:

High impact on battery life

  • Display brightness: to save battery, set the display to a reduced brightness. Suunto D5’s display utilizes ambient light to improve the display readability. In bright conditions you can turn the brightness setting off and the display is still fully readable. To adjust the setting open General > Device settings > Brightness.

Medium impact on battery life

  • Frequent use of the compass view while diving: To save battery, try to keep the compass view use to a minimum.
  • Active dive functionalities when not diving for longer times: To save battery, use the mode Off which disables all dive functionalities and shows only the time view. To activate this mode open Dive settings > Mode > Off.

Small impact to battery life

  • Tones and vibra: To save battery, turn off both setting under General > Device settings > Tones and General > Device settings > Vibra.
  • Bluetooth: To save battery, disable Bluetooth by activating the airplane mode under General > Connectivity > Airplane mode.

Note: The battery of your Suunto D5 needs several full charging cycles to show consistent battery time left information. To make this possible, do minimum three full charging cycles with your watch (let it run out of battery and fully recharge it).

Tip: To save battery, your Suunto D5 automatically activates idle and deep sleep modes.

Idle mode will be activated after two minutes of inactivity. In idle mode the number of display colors is reduced and all active display elements, e.g. seconds hand, is deactivated.

Deep sleep will be activated when one day has passed since

  • the last button press,
  • Suunto D5 has been charged or attached to a PC,
  • dive calculation has ended.

When deep sleep is activated, the display of Suunto D5 will be blank and all functionalities will be deactivated. Wake your dive computer up by pressing any button, connecting it to a PC or charger, or by wetting the water contact.

Suunto EON Steel, EON Core and D5 dive computers with Suunto FusedTM RGBM 2 and Suunto FusedTM RGBM algorithms provide 5 personal setting options (+2, +1, 0, -1, -2).

These options refer to decompression models, which can be conservative (+2 and +1) or aggressive (-2, -1, 0). Generally speaking, conservative means safer. In practice it means that a dive at a given depth is shorter due to the decompression obligation (the no decompression time is short).

Personal adjustment value Condition Description
-2 (P-2) Ideal conditions, excellent physical fitness, highly experienced with a lot of dives in the near past Progressively less conservative
-1 (P-1) Ideal conditions, good physical fitness, wellexperienced with a lot of dives in the near past
0 (P0) Ideal conditions Default
+1 (P1) Some risk factors or conditions exist Progressively more conservative
+2 (P2) Several risk factors or conditions exist

Conservative also means that the time the diver needs to spend on decompression is longer. For recreational divers, a conservative model means less time in the water in order to avoid decompression requirements. For technical divers, however, conservative means more time in the water because of the longer decompression requirements imposed during ascent.

Aggressive models, on the other hand, increase the potential health risks of a dive. For recreational divers, an aggressive model allows more time at depth, but may significantly increase the risk of DCS. The Suunto Fused™ RGBM and FusedTM RGBM 2 adapt its predictions of both the effect of microbubble build up and adverse dive behaviour in the current series of dives. The default setting for the Suunto Fused™ RGBM and FusedTM RGBM 2 is to use a compromise (0 setting) between conservative and aggressive. With the personal setting, you can select gradually more conservative or more aggressive calculations.

Suunto DM5 no-decompression time table

The personal setting reflects the fact that personal health and behaviour have an impact on your DCS susceptibility. Therefore, we recommend consulting your physician regarding your fitness before diving. Any of the following can potentially increase your risk for DCS:

  • BMI that is considered obese
  • Poor physical fitness
  • Age, particularly for divers over the age of 50
  • Fatigue, for example from over exercising, strenuous travel, or lack of sleep
  • Cold water exposure, which can cause the blood vessels at the body’s extremities to close down and maintain the body’s core temperature
  • Exercising before or after a dive, which can increase bubble formation
  • Strenuous activity during a dive, which can increase blood flow, bringing additional gas to tissues
  • Tight fitting equipment, which can slow off -gassing
  • Dehydration, which effects circulation and can slow down off -gassing

Pre-checks before diving

Before leaving for a dive trip, inspect your dive computer thoroughly to make sure everything is functioning properly. At the dive site, perform your manual pre-checks on each device before entering the water.

Offset pressure reading inaccurate

Your dive computer should show a depth reading of 0.0m before entering the water and starting the dive. In some cases, your dive computer may show depth variations of several tens of centimeters (e.g. 0,3m) before diving which are normal. The variation may be caused by the reference pressure (so-called offset pressure) not being yet updated to the current ambient pressure level of your surroundings.

Suunto D5 - offset pressure

To ensure your dive computer updates the reference pressure, let your watch go into idle (watch mode without seconds displayed in the screenshot below) or fast standby mode with inactive water contact (blue waves icon). Your dive computer should automatically update the reference pressure and correct the depth reading after several minutes.

Suunto D5 - idle mode

Safety checks during the dive and error messages

Check your dive computer regularly during a dive. If you believe or conclude that there is a problem with any computer function, abort the dive immediately and safely return to the surface. Call Suunto Customer Support and return your computer to an authorized Suunto Service Center for inspection.

If you see an error message in the screen call Suunto Customer Support and return your computer to an authorized Suunto Service Center for inspection.

No-fly time is the minimum surface time after a dive which is recommended to wait before flying with an airplane. During this time, flying or traveling to a higher altitude should be avoided to minimise the risk of decompression sickness (DCS).

Suunto dive computers display surface time since the previous dive and a countdown time for recommended no-fly time. On Suunto D5 the no-fly time indicator will be visible on all views and is easy to identify by a plane icon with a countdown timer underneath. The surface time is indicated by a clock icon and a timer.

Once the no-fly time has ended, you can enter and fly with a normal airplane which is pressurized up to 3000 m.

Note: No-fly time is always at least 12 hours long and equals the necessary desaturation time based on your previous dive(s) if the no-fly time is longer than 12 hours. For desaturation times shorter than 75 minutes, no no-fly time will be displayed.

The following tips and settings options will help you understand which features of your Suunto D5 drain battery and how to optimize for longer battery life:

High impact on battery life

  • Display brightness: to save battery, set the display to a reduced brightness. Suunto D5’s display utilizes ambient light to improve the display readability. In bright conditions you can turn the brightness setting off and the display is still fully readable. To adjust the setting open General > Device settings > Brightness.

Medium impact on battery life

  • Frequent use of the compass view while diving: To save battery, try to keep the compass view use to a minimum.
  • Active dive functionalities when not diving for longer times: To save battery, use the mode Off which disables all dive functionalities and shows only the time view. To activate this mode open Dive settings > Mode > Off.

Small impact to battery life

  • Tones and vibra: To save battery, turn off both setting under General > Device settings > Tones and General > Device settings > Vibra.
  • Bluetooth: To save battery, disable Bluetooth by activating the airplane mode under General > Connectivity > Airplane mode.

Note: The battery of your Suunto D5 needs several full charging cycles to show consistent battery time left information. To make this possible, do minimum three full charging cycles with your watch (let it run out of battery and fully recharge it).

Tip: To save battery, your Suunto D5 automatically activates idle and deep sleep modes.

Idle mode will be activated after two minutes of inactivity. In idle mode the number of display colors is reduced and all active display elements, e.g. seconds hand, is deactivated.

Deep sleep will be activated when one day has passed since

  • the last button press,
  • Suunto D5 has been charged or attached to a PC,
  • dive calculation has ended.

When deep sleep is activated, the display of Suunto D5 will be blank and all functionalities will be deactivated. Wake your dive computer up by pressing any button, connecting it to a PC or charger, or by wetting the water contact.

Suunto EON Steel, EON Core and D5 dive computers with Suunto FusedTM RGBM 2 and Suunto FusedTM RGBM algorithms provide 5 personal setting options (+2, +1, 0, -1, -2).

These options refer to decompression models, which can be conservative (+2 and +1) or aggressive (-2, -1, 0). Generally speaking, conservative means safer. In practice it means that a dive at a given depth is shorter due to the decompression obligation (the no decompression time is short).

Personal adjustment value Condition Description
-2 (P-2) Ideal conditions, excellent physical fitness, highly experienced with a lot of dives in the near past Progressively less conservative
-1 (P-1) Ideal conditions, good physical fitness, wellexperienced with a lot of dives in the near past
0 (P0) Ideal conditions Default
+1 (P1) Some risk factors or conditions exist Progressively more conservative
+2 (P2) Several risk factors or conditions exist

Conservative also means that the time the diver needs to spend on decompression is longer. For recreational divers, a conservative model means less time in the water in order to avoid decompression requirements. For technical divers, however, conservative means more time in the water because of the longer decompression requirements imposed during ascent.

Aggressive models, on the other hand, increase the potential health risks of a dive. For recreational divers, an aggressive model allows more time at depth, but may significantly increase the risk of DCS. The Suunto Fused™ RGBM and FusedTM RGBM 2 adapt its predictions of both the effect of microbubble build up and adverse dive behaviour in the current series of dives. The default setting for the Suunto Fused™ RGBM and FusedTM RGBM 2 is to use a compromise (0 setting) between conservative and aggressive. With the personal setting, you can select gradually more conservative or more aggressive calculations.

The personal setting reflects the fact that personal health and behaviour have an impact on your DCS susceptibility. Therefore, we recommend consulting your physician regarding your fitness before diving. Any of the following can potentially increase your risk for DCS:

  • BMI that is considered obese
  • Poor physical fitness
  • Age, particularly for divers over the age of 50
  • Fatigue, for example from over exercising, strenuous travel, or lack of sleep
  • Cold water exposure, which can cause the blood vessels at the body’s extremities to close down and maintain the body’s core temperature
  • Exercising before or after a dive, which can increase bubble formation
  • Strenuous activity during a dive, which can increase blood flow, bringing additional gas to tissues
  • Tight fitting equipment, which can slow off -gassing
  • Dehydration, which effects circulation and can slow down off -gassing

Pre-checks before diving

Before leaving for a dive trip, inspect your dive computer thoroughly to make sure everything is functioning properly. At the dive site, perform your manual pre-checks on each device before entering the water.

Offset pressure reading inaccurate

Your dive computer should show a depth reading of 0.0m before entering the water and starting the dive. In some cases, your dive computer may show depth variations of several tens of centimeters (e.g. 0,3m) before diving which are normal. The variation may be caused by the reference pressure (so-called offset pressure) not being yet updated to the current ambient pressure level of your surroundings.

Suunto D5 - offset pressure

To ensure your dive computer updates the reference pressure, let your watch go into idle (watch mode without seconds displayed in the screenshot below) or fast standby mode with inactive water contact (blue waves icon). Your dive computer should automatically update the reference pressure and correct the depth reading after several minutes.

Safety checks during the dive and error messages

Check your dive computer regularly during a dive. If you believe or conclude that there is a problem with any computer function, abort the dive immediately and safely return to the surface. Call Suunto Customer Support and return your computer to an authorized Suunto Service Center for inspection.

If you see an error message in the screen call Suunto Customer Support and return your computer to an authorized Suunto Service Center for inspection.

No-fly time is the minimum surface time after a dive which is recommended to wait before flying with an airplane. During this time, flying or traveling to a higher altitude should be avoided to minimise the risk of decompression sickness (DCS).

Suunto dive computers display surface time since the previous dive and a countdown time for recommended no-fly time. On Suunto D5 the no-fly time indicator will be visible on all views and is easy to identify by a plane icon with a countdown timer underneath. The surface time is indicated by a clock icon and a timer.

Once the no-fly time has ended, you can enter and fly with a normal airplane which is pressurized up to 3000 m.

Note: No-fly time is always at least 12 hours long and equals the necessary desaturation time based on your previous dive(s) if the no-fly time is longer than 12 hours. For desaturation times shorter than 75 minutes, no no-fly time will be displayed.

When diving in gauge mode, Suunto D5 works as a bottom timer and does not calculate decompression information.

Suunto D5 - diving in gauge mode

Therefore, when switching to air/nitrox dive mode after a dive in gauge mode, Suunto D5 does not have decompression information available which is crucial for further calculations and safe diving. As a safety measure the decompression calculation will be available again after 48h.
