Aqualung & Suunto To End Partnership

 After more than 30 years of working together Aqualung and Suunto are ending their relationship.

Aqualung has distributed Suunto in North America and approximately one half the rest of the world.  Suunto has had other distributors in other parts of the world.  It was Aqualungs desire for continuity in all their markets that led them to discuss the possibility of assuming distribution throughout the world.  Unfortunately, they were unable to agree to terms with Suunto.

When it became apparent they would not be able to come to an agreement with Suunto, Aqualung looked for another source for computers.  They had worked in the past with Pelagic, another computer manufacturer and looked to them as another source.  Aqualung was able to successfully acquire Pelagic, thereby ensuring a global continuity in Aqualung instrumentation and meeting a goal of ownership of Aqulaung products.

The end of the agreement will be December 31, 2015.  Through the end of the year Aqulaung will continue to support and service Suunto products.  After the end of the year service and sales will still be available though through another source.  We will carry replacement battery kits for as long as they are available and will assist in locating parts and service for all our customers

Update Notice For Shearwater NERD Computer using DiveCan

 

*****************************************************************

If you are the owner of a NERD Dive Computer from Shearwater Research, it has been announced yesterday on the Shearwater website that a bug has been found in the firmware for DiveCAN models. The bug affects the PPO2 decompression calculations.

Any DiveCAN users of NERD v09 should upgrade to v10 firmware.

Use Shearwater Desktop to update to the latest firmware (NERD v10).

Fischer NERD users are unaffected, but can update if desired. The Petrel and Predator models were never affected by this issue.
