I read a review of this dive PC and they said one of its disadvantages is that there is no backlighting and there are no audible alarms to warn you about something that requires your attention. However, I think they were writing about the wrist model version of the computer and not the integrated version which I purchased. When I read the instructions, it speaks to visual and/or audio alarms. So I basically need to know from an expert about whether this has audio alarms and has backlighting. If it does not, can you point me to a low cost dive computer similar to this one that does have audio alarms and is backlit? I just need something simple and straightforward that wont require me to be constantly monitoring the dive computer full time. Thanks!
Hello Daniel, no your computer does not have audible alarms. The computer you are looking for is the: http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-16/009448/Suunto-ZOOP-2-Gauge-Air---Nitrox-Computer-Console.html. This computer will have the features you are looking for.
I want to know if the SPG can be purchased in METRIC, instead of imperial
Hello Trent, here is the link: http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-18/009282/Oceanic-Veo-1.0-Air---Nitrox-2-Gauge-Computer--Console-Metric.html for the metric version of the SPG.
Simple is as simple does. The Oceanic Veo is a solid basic 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.
