I bought my son a Zoop and had to do a battery change. Bought the official kit and did the battery change. About 5 dives later the Zoop reset itself during a dive, bit concerning. I reset the history on the D5 app and it has got progressively worse since then. On a 40 min dive the computer will reset itself up to 4 times lately. Seems like it's reseing to factory default as it throw the date and time settings back to 2000-01-01
I may add that I've bought 2 battery kits off Amazon and found that the battery thickness does differ a little. This is the same for all new CR2450 batteries I've come across lately.

Any advice on what the cause may be?

Clean the contacts and put a new, non ebay battery in it (just so you know it’s fresher) a little rubbing alcohol on a course material is good for cleaning the contacts

Contact Suunto tech support. Sounds like a bad chip.

Lex, which coarse material? Take a page out of the OWSI or Rescue manual? Which is more “course”? :yeahbaby:

Was turkey your second coarse?
Of course unless mashed potatoes and gravy count as two than it would be third in a coarse estimation.
