Suunto D3 and Mosquito in freediving.
What is the diference between this two watches in dislaying funktions in freediving mode, like:
-actual depth
-max depth in dive sesion
-time of the current dive ( every repeatable dive)
-total dive time in dive sesion (all repeatable dives)
-PC programes and data

The diference in accurate depth and time recording (1sec/D3, 2sec/Mosquito) I know.

I had a Mosquito and now use a D3.
There is no difference in the display from what i remember.
the only difference are the sampling rate, and stopwatch, countdown functions.
If you scuba dive as well, i would go for the Mosquito, otherwise, the D3, it's cheaper, and the 1sec sampling rate makes a big difference - it gives you much more information about your dives than the Mosquito. You can even resolve individual pulls in free immersion with the D3!
