Hail the return of the visual warning light for audible altimeters! L&B has made the ability to increase your altitude awareness by adding a visual LED port to warn you at the altitudes you set.
The OPTIMA™ II with Visual Warning Port is an audible altimeter with freefall alerts, canopy descent warnings and landing guide tones. The canopy descent warnings and landing guide tones allow you to preset warning altitudes for use under canopy and, if desired, to provide timing beeps to help you track your landing pattern.
The Optima II with Visual Warning Port can be connected to the Optima LED Indicator or the HypEye D Pro w/Expansion Kit.
This version of the Optima II is not water-resistant with the visual warning port option.
The visual warning port OPTIMA II does not include the actual HypEye D Pro/Expansion Kit and/or Optima LED Indicator. The lights can be ordered separately from ChutingStar.
L&B has listened to skydivers across the globe and has answered the call with OPTIMA II™! The OPTIMA II™ is a more advanced audible altimeter with extremely accurate altitude detection.
OPTIMA II™ is so accurate that it has an added set of warning beeps that can be set for a specific altitude during normal and high speed landing approaches. This feature has been added to aid both swoopers and conservative pilots alike find the “sweet spot” for initiating landing sequences. It is recommended that your eyesight and your experience be the primary source of determining at what altitude to start your landing sequence or pattern approaches.
The OPTIMA™ II is an audible altimeter with freefall alerts, canopy descent warnings and landing guide tones. The canopy descent warnings and landing guide tones allow you to preset warning altitudes for use under canopy and, if desired, to provide timing beeps to help you track your landing pattern.

Super easy to useThis is the best Audible I have ever used. Although it is not a must have for new jumpers it is a great to have item. It is so easy to program from one jump to the next.
Best audible on the marketWith the addition of the optional LED port this audible altimeter is hands down the most accurate and reliable on the market.
Excellent Audible -- Perfect mate to an L&B QuattroExcellent audible. It's my 2nd audible, paired with an L&B Quattro. Together, I get a tracking guide, three main free fall alarms, and three canopy alarms with a swoop guide. The two are always very close to being in sync at every alarm point. Works great!
Love my Optima IIThis is a great audible, made even more awesome with the LED add-on. I set the indicators for the airplane ride to the "seatbelts off" altitude, and have a few different freefall presets, depending on what we're doing on the jump. Great product all around!
