Aqua Lung of Vista, Calif., is recalling about 16,400 Aqualung i330R SCUBA diving computers.
The diving computers can fail to adjust to the user's altitude and may display incorrect calculations for sea level dive times at altitudes exceeding 3,000 feet. This issue could increase the risk of injury (decompression sickness) and make it more likely for users to drown.
The firm has received one report of an incident in which the dive computer failed by displaying incorrect calculations. No injuries have been reported.
The diving computers, manufactured in Taiwan, were sold at dive stores nationwide from May 2021, through March 2022, for between $400 and $600. A list of the recalled model numbers, serial number ranges, and manufactured dates may be found here.
What to do
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled devices and contact Aqua Lung to arrange for a free repair.
Consumers may download a software update through the DiverLog+ application or bring their recalled dive computer to their dealer or local dive center to have the software update installed.
Consumers may contact Aqua Lung toll-free at (800) 882-1404 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. (PT) Monday through Friday, by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or online for more information.
