The Suunto D9tx is one of the first wrist-sized diving computers with a trimix algorithm. It performs thousands of complex calculations, allowing divers constant access to information that helps them make diving-related decisions, like how long they have been underwater, how deep they are, and when it is time to resurface. The lightweight titanium casing, which is reminiscent of the waves on the ocean surface, is very robust and durable. The side pieces are inspired by the silhouette of a dolphin‘s nose.
