    Suunto Cobra, Cobra 2, Cobra 3?

    So my question is.. i've decided I want the Suunto Cobra, but I am not sure which model. I can find info on the Cobra and the Cobra 3 on Suunto's site, but can't find any information on the 2?

    Can someone shed some light on the differences? Or what's in the 2?
    and what's the difference between the Cobra and the ones labeled "Air/Nitrox"

    They all do Nitrox right?

    Here side-by side comparison for the Cobra and the Cobra 3.
    We have online classes for both.

    The Cobra 2 is discontinued.

    I've got a Cobra 2. As I understand it, about the only difference between the 2 and three is that the electronic compass on the 3 has been modified so that the console can be tipped more and still work instead of having to be nearly perfectly level.

    I've owned a Cobra and now have a Cobra 3. Love both of them, very easy to use, and the Cobra 3's integrated compass works great. I also got the quick disconnect, which simplifies toting the computer around.

    I had a Cobra2 with the quick disconnect. The compass was terrible as it would vanish unless you held it perfectly flat. My understanding is that's what was fixed on the Cobra3. This wasn't much of an issue for me as I rarely use a compass.

    I liked my Cobra2 but got rid of it as soon as the Atomic Cobalt came out. Don't go look at the Cobalt unless you're prepared to buy one as it will blow you away.

    If you do get a Cobra, I highly recommend the quick disconnect. It really should be included with the computer as I can't imagine not having one.
