Digital Diving Computers Recalled by Hollis Due to Drowning Hazard

Posted

The federal Consumer Product Safety Commission has announced a recall of Hollis DG03 Dive Computers that, when used with an optional integrated transmitter, can malfunction and display an incorrect tank pressure reading to the diver. A diver could unknowingly deplete their air supply based on the reading, resulting in drowning.

Hollis has received two reports of dive computers malfunctioning. No injuries have been reported.

The recall includes Hollis brand DG03 dive computers with serial numbers 100 through 1142 that may be used with integrated transmitters that monitor tank pressure. The round black 2-1/2 inch diameter computer has a digital screen and is worn on the diver’s wrist like a watch. These computers allow scuba divers to measure the time and depth of a dive.

The name of the product, Hollis DG03, is printed on the front of the unit and the serial number is printed on the back of the unit. Only dive computers with software labeled Revision 1A, viewed on the computer’s display are included in the recall.

Owners of affected DG03 dive computers should not continue to use a DG03 dive computer until the software is upgraded. More information on the recall is available at the Hollis website.
