    This may have been addressed elsewhere. If so, I apologize.

    I am having a heck of a time with my Suunto Eon Core and glare/refection issues in the sun. I was diving today on a bright sunny day and my computer was, essentially, a dark rectangle on my wrist. Sun was streaming into a cave I was in at 25 ft (8 meters) deep and I couldn't read the screen. I was using the compass to navigate at at 15 feet (5 meters) and couldn't see a thing. Couldn't see how much air I had left. Couldn't see the compass. Nothing.

    I have the brightness set at the highest setting to try and combat the glare issue.

    Should I get some sort of anti-glare screen protector? Will that help? If so, is there one that is recommended?

    I have an eon core, I love it. However, I have exactly the same problem on shallow, sunny dives or stops. Mercifully that is not often a problem in the UK. It is great at depth. This is no solution, but for very shallow dives I use my trusty dive timer. I hope someone actually helps you.

    I sure hope so, too. I love this computer, but, living in Hawai'i, sunny days prevail. I need to find a solution.

    The simple solution is to move your arm so that the computer screen is shaded.

    I shielded it with my body and my hand. I moved to a different area. Nothing works. That simple solution doesn't work. This is not the first time I've had this problem.

    My solution is looking like selling it and getting the G2.
