Aqua Lung of Vista, California is recalling approximately 16,400 Aqualung i330R scuba dive computers.

Dive computers may not adjust to the user’s altitude and may display incorrect calculations for sea level dive times at altitudes above 3,000 feet. This issue could increase the risk of injury (decompression sickness) and make drowning of users more likely.

The company received an incident report in which the dive computer crashed displaying incorrect calculations. No injuries were reported.

The dive computers, made in Taiwan, were sold in dive shops across the country from May 2021 to March 2022 for between $400 and $600. A list of recalled model numbers, serial number ranges and dates of manufacture can be found here.

What to do

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled appliances and contact Aqua Lung to arrange for a free repair.

Consumers can download a software update through the DiverLog+ app or take 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 [email protected], or on line for more information.
