The Oceanic Veo 1.0 is a solid basic dive computer designed for air or single gas nitrox mixes up to 50 percent. It displays only essential information during the dive in easy-to-read digits; uses effective bar graphs to present nitrogen loading and ascent rate; and offers useful features like an automatic safety stop countdown timer that ticks off three minutes when you ascend to 15 feet. A single push button is all that's required to navigate the settings and the sequences are intuitive with help from the excellent owner's manual and waterproof prompt card. At this price point, you are giving up bells and whistles--most notably audible alarms, a backlight and the ability to download dive profiles--but these are excellent choices if you want a simple, low-cost computer.

Choose Your Dive Mode Display
The Veo 1.0 Dive Computer is as versatile underwater as it is topside. Upon starting your dive, the Veo 1.0 will simply display your current depth and how long you can stay there (Dive Time Remaining). While many divers have asked for such simplicity and ease of use, you know that with all the Veo 1.0 features, there must be more. And there is. Simply press the button to see more information. Is this information important to you on a full time basis? Leave it there. Just want to check it and then move on to another display? You can do that too. It's up to you and your new Veo 1.0.

Dive Time Remaining
Dive Time Remaining provides a 'real' number in minutes, considering Nitrogen absorption, and automatically displays time.

Oversized Digits
Take the Oceanic challenge: When shopping for a new dive computer, compare the displays. When it comes to viewing critical information, which would you rather see at 100 feet?

"Hockey Puck" Modular Design
Allows easy upgrade from most analog gauge or computer consoles. This innovative modular design allows versatile configurations from our Swiv Combo or NavCon consoles, wrist mount, hose-mount boot, or a retractor attached to your BC.

 Air or Nitrox
The Veo 1.0 Dive computer acts simply as an 'Air' computer until you tell it otherwise, whether that is this weekend or 2 years down the road. 

Safety Stop Prompt with Adjustable Depth and Time

An automatic visual prompt reminds you as you approach your programmed no decompression safety stop depth and an automatic timer counts down to zero. As in any other dive mode, you still have access to other pieces of information, and there is no penalty should you choose to disregard the safety stop.

Time Stamp
The Veo 1.0 Dive Computer features time of day on the surface as well as underwater for quick reference.

Automatic Altitude Compensation

The Veo 1.0 automatically compensates for altitude dives up to 14,000 feet, giving adjusted no-decompression times and depths. The Veo 1.0 even automatically recalibrates the depth displays for freshwater instead of seawater above 2,000 feet.

Diver-Replaceable Batteries

The Veo 1.0 dive Computer features a diver replaceable battery. This can be a real trip-saver on board a live-aboard boat!

Battery Hot Swap
Should you be in a tight spot between dives, the "hot-swap" feature allows you to change batteries between dives while maintaining all calculations.

24-Hour Fly Countdown and Calculated Desaturation Time
The Veo 1.0 features both a 24-hour countdown timer and calculated Desaturation Time, the theoretical time required to off-gas all residual nitrogen at sea level.

Depth-Dependent Ascent Rate
The Veo 1.0 features a depth-dependant ascent rate, allowing increased rates at deeper depths and providing additional safety as you near the surface.

12 Dive On-Unit Log Book

The Veo 1.0 features on-unit data storage capacity for 12 dives. Dive numbering and time stamp makes locating and viewing a specific dive quick and easy.

Gauge Mode

Divers using advanced breathing gas may utilize the Veo 100 Nx as an advanced air integrated digital depth gauge and bottom timer with detailed PC Interface.

User Settings and Options

Water Activation On/Off
The Veo 1.0 Dive Computer automatically enters Dive Mode when the water contacts are wet, and the unit is submerged past 4 feet. To avoid this when swimming or enjoying other water sports, simply set Water Activation Off.

Units of Measurement
Choose between Metric and Imperial settings for date, temperature, depth and pressure.

Choose the one dive computer that’s liberal, conservative or middle-of-the-road.

Oceanic’s new Veo offers Dual Algorithm™ technology, letting you choose the decompression algorithm that best suits your diving needs without compromising safety.

Choose Pelagic DSAT for:
Liberal Recreational Diving
The Pelagic DSAT Algorithm safely maximizes dive time for repetitive, multi-level recreational diving. This algorithm relies on the human Doppler studies used to develop PADI’s Recreational Dive Planner (RDP), and has been the basis of Oceanic's and other manufacturer's computer algorithms for many years.

To add additional conservatism, you can also adjust the:

  • Tissue-Loading Bar Graph Alarm
  • Conservative Factor Setting

Choose Pelagic Z+ for:
Conservative Recreational Diving
When applied to standard recreational diving, the Pelagic Z+ Algorithm basis increases the conservative factor of the Veo by 15-20%.

Liberal Repetitive Deep and Decompression Diving
The Pelagic Z+ uses the Buhlmann ZHL-16C database, which was conducted to meet the more rigorous demands of repetitive, cold-water decompression diving at altitude. The Pelagic Z+ mode maximizes dive times at depth without penalties.

Dive in sync with any buddy, anywhere
Because the Veo allows you to adjust the algorithm basis and its conservatism, you can adjust to closely match just about any other dive computer on the market, allowing you and any buddy to always dive in sync. Diving the same profile increases safety for both divers, and eliminates the need for one person to conduct a much longer or deeper stop when buddying with someone wearing a more liberal dive computer. On repetitive dives, there is no more waiting for the more conservative dive computer to clear. Both buddies will be ready to enter the water at the same time and can continue to dive the same profiles. You can’t control which dive computer your buddy wears, but you can control your ability to dive the same profile.

A note about deep stops:
Both algorithms allow (user ON/OFF option) credit for deep stops for No-Decompression dives in keeping with the data of Morroni et al (2004) and Bennett et al (2007).  No penalty is given if the diver skips the deep stop, but it is strongly recommended that a shallow safety stop be made with or without the deep stop in keeping with the experiments of Pilmanis (1975).

It is important to note that neither algorithm provides deep stops for decompression dives since there is ample experimental data [Blatteau et al (2005), Gerth et al (2007), and Gutvik et al (2007)] that indicate that this practice often produces an increase in the risk of DCS.
