Suunto 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. Diver safety is of highest importance to Suunto. That is why Suunto has decided to initiate a product recall of all Suunto Wireless Tank Pressure Transmitters and Suunto Tank PODs.
All consumers who have a Suunto Wireless Tank Pressure Transmitter or Tank POD are instructed to bring their products to an authorised Suunto dive dealer or a Suunto Authorised Service Centre 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.
Suunto sincerely apologises for any inconvenience caused by this recall. As a complementary service, Suunto will provide a battery replacement free of charge and a one-year warranty from the date of inspection for all upgraded products.
