Oceanic VTS Scuba Diving Computer Review

Overview

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. In this Oceanic VTS computer review, we shall be looking at all the benefits of owning this great piece while still highlighting all the merits and demerits that come with it.

The Oceanic Air Integrated VTX Dive Computer is the first dive computer engineered to take full advantage of Bluetooth 4.0 technology. Together with the DiverLog for iOS App, wirelessly interacting with your dive computer immediately before and after your dive with a smart phone or tablet is now possible. Remotely control all your Oceanic Air Integrated VTX Dive Computer settings, view Log and Profile data, add location, notes and other details – from anywhere. No need to physically connect your dive computer to a computer device ever again.

The new, intuitive menu structure of the Oceanic Air Integrated VTX Dive Computer makes managing your settings on the fly and interfacing with the unit during a dive a thing of beauty. The displays and interface are designed to be unobtrusive. The clutter has been removed to allow for you to focus on what matters most… the dive. It’s about showing you what you need to see when you want to see it. That’s it.

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.
