Huntzinger v. Suunto Oy, et al.
Suunto Dive Computer Settlement
No. 37-2018-00027159-CU-BT-CTL

Welcome to the Suunto Dive Computer Settlement Website

IF YOU PREVIOUSLY PURCHASED A NEW SUUNTO DIVE COMPUTER IN THE UNITED STATES, A SETTLEMENT HAS BEEN REACHED THAT MAY AFFECT YOUR RIGHTS.

What is this lawsuit about?

A settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit against Suunto Oy (“Suunto”) and Aqua Lung America, Inc. (“Aqua Lung”) (together, “Defendants”) concerning certain Suunto Dive Computers. Those purchasers included in the Settlement have legal rights and options and deadlines by which they must exercise them.

Who is included? 

You may be included in the Settlement if you purchased new in the United States one or more of the following models of Suunto Dive Computers that were manufactured from January 1, 2006 through August 10, 2018: Cobra, Cobra 2, Cobra 3, Cobra 3 Black, Vyper, Vyper Novo, Vyper 2, Vyper Air, HelO2, Gekko, Vytec, Vytec DS, Zoop, Zoop Novo, Mosquito, D4, D6, D9, D4i, D6i, D4i Novo, D6i Novo, D9tx, and DX.

The proposed Settlement provides for a free Inspection, Repair or Replacement Program to determine whether your Dive Computer has a faulty depth pressure sensor and, if it does, repair of your Dive Computer or a free replacement. The Settlement also reimburses qualifying Class Members for certain costs.

Your Rights and Choices

 

DATE/CLAIM PERIOD YOU MAY:

The longer of either (a) 10 years from the date the Dive Computer was manufactured; or (b) 1 year from the Effective Date

SEEK INSPECTION OF YOUR DIVE COMPUTER UNDER THE INSPECTION, REPAIR AND REPLACEMENT PROGRAM

You are entitled to have your Dive Computer inspected by an authorized Suunto service center to determine whether your Dive Computer has a faulty depth pressure sensor. If the inspection shows that your Dive Computer has a faulty pressure sensor, Suunto will either repair the Dive Computer or replace it, at no cost to you.

DO NOT send your Dive Computer to the Settlement Administrator or Suunto until after you have submitted an Inspection, Repair or Replacement Claim Form. Once the Claim Form has been received by Suunto, a representative will contact you with information on how and where to send your Dive Computer for inspection.

You may also complete a Claim Form in person at one of the five authorized Suunto service centers provided in the approved List of Authorized Suunto Service Centers here.

FILE A CLAIM TO SEEK REIMBURSEMENT

You may submit a claim for reimbursement if you purchased a Dive Computer that had a depth pressure sensor failure and you either (a) discarded the Dive Computer due to the depth pressure sensor failure and did not receive a free repaired or replacement dive computer, or (b) purchased a replacement Dive Computer from one of the Defendants as part of a warranty program at a cost to you. You may also seek reimbursement for out-of-pocket costs incurred in attempting to repair your Dive Computer that had a depth pressure sensor failure. All claims must comply with the Reimbursement Program Protocols. This is the only way that you can get reimbursed. The amount of reimbursement money paid to you shall be limited according to the terms of the Settlement Agreement.
