Oceanic VEO 2.0 Scuba Diving Computer Review
A 3-gauge dive console that has the pressure gauge on the bottom and the dive computer on the top. This Oceanic ‘Veo 2.0 Nav Con’ edition also has a Supertilt (Maxtilt) compass included, which can be held at up to a 30-degree angle and still respond quickly and accurately. In this Oceanic VEO 20 review, we shall be examining all the details of this awesome scuba diving computer while hinting on the merits and demerits it has.
Technology has never been easier. Brimming with all the tech and performance features serious divers seek and Oceanic’s trademark ease-of-use and easy-to-read digits, the ‘Veo 2.0’ dive computer may not only be your first dive console but can be the last you’ll ever need. The Veo 2.0 is a relatively basic computer but comes with features including a full menu of audible and visual alarms for everything from nitrox settings to depth, time and deco status.
You also get a backlight function (you set the duration) and the option of downloading your profiles to a PC. The Veo 2.0 features well-designed bar graphs to make monitoring your ascent rate and nitrogen loading easy.
For all scuba diver who loves sophistication and ingenuity in their computers, Oceanic VTS is the best option to choose. Designed with arguably the best non-cluttered interface available, easy-to-use options and simple adaptable features, very few scuba dive computers can rival the goodness of Oceanic. It has a Bluetooth technology that integrates with your PC for sleek data transfer and the best interaction ever. It is so good that you can literally operate it without prior knowledge of how it works. That is how simple-to-use it is.
I believe that the goal of Oceanic VTS is to revolutionalize scuba diving through providing a dive computer that brings sophistication and gets rid of irrelevancies. Without a doubt, it has been achieved and more so, surpassed. Packed with good grade features like high contrast OLED color screen for maximum visibility, premium digital compass, sophisticated button menu style and about 4 nitrox mixes, you can’t doubt that it is the best you can search for on a computer.
Regardless of your expertise or inexperience, you will agree with me that Oceanic VTS reserve the right to a very good computer that it breaks the norm and set a new standard in scuba dive computers. An example of this excellent standard is its dual Algorithm – Pelagic DSAT and Pelagic Z+. There is also a digital compass which is dynamic enough to give you the best guidance you will need. The compass provides north, reference, auto home and declination adjustments so you are guarded all the way. I highly recommend Oceanic VTS for professional scuba divers who want to experience the best sophistication available in dive computer technology.
